Vanitas by Profumum Roma
18ml Extrait de Parfum
Olfactive Family – Soft Amber / Gourmand / Vanilla
Vanitas is a vanilla scent that is sophisticated and complex, but still delicious and comforting.
Profumum Roma makes full use of the vanilla’s enormous attraction powers in its “Vanitas” fragrance, a truly indulgent gourmand centred around a beautiful Madagascar Vanilla absolute with accents of orange blossoms, myrrh and woods, just enough to emphasise the mouthwatering sweetness of exquisite vanilla and at the same time to give depth and extra layers of interest.
Scent Profile – Madagascan Vanilla absolute, Myrrh, Orange Flower, Sandalwood
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.
