Ichnusa by Profumum Roma
18ml Eau de Parfum
Olfactive Family – Woods / Fresh / Green
Ichnusa was inspired by the beautiful island of Sardinia, with its sandy beaches, mountainous interior and a bounty of wild life and aromatic vegetation.
With its fig trees with their promise of moist, sweet pink flesh bursting with figgy goodness. It starts so fresh and crisp, like the cool morning breeze carrying over to your window the scents of the landscape: freshly cut grass, sharp myrtle, dewy fig leaves. Slowly the scent is warming up to a sultry, sensuous mist of ripe figs and creamy, soft woods, yet it never loses the green bite that made it feel so tart and energising in the first place. A must try for all fig lovers.
Olfactive Notes – Myrtle, Cut Grass, Fig Leaf, Fig Wood
Directly from Rome we bring you Profumum Roma, a family owned niche perfume brand that make their scent in oil base. The story begins with Celestino and Lucia Durante who after the Second World War decided to move from a small town called Sant’Elena Sannita to Rome. Coming from a family with a long artisan tradition, they used their skills to open a tiny storefront selling interesting fragrances, hand made soaps and other beauty products. From these humble beginnings the business grew into a chain of shops that quickly became a reference point for luxury personal care in the city.
The skill and craftsmanship were passed on through the generations of the Durante family and in 1996 Celestino and Lucia’s grandchildren expanded the business by creating a line of exclusive fragrances. The Profumum Roma scents are exquisitely crafted to evoke the emotions and memories of their beloved Italy. Inspiration has come from an eclectic mix of Italian motifs including stories of Rome, iconic vacation islands and even a delicious local pastry shop. The resultant scents though seductively layered, are wonderfully simple at heart.
