Dambrosia by Profumum Roma
1.5ml Eau de Parfum Sample
Olfactive Family – Woods / Fresh / Green
In Greek mythology, ambrosia is the food of gods, brought to Mount Olympus by doves and said to confer immortality and youth. Dambrosia does smell like something only divine beings would consume: a luscious banquet of the ripest pears, figs and cherries on a platter of crushed, blanched almonds with their faintly bitter aroma and all of this dripping in nectarous sweetness.
In spite of the fruity richness, Dambrosia maintains a soft and creamy aura that is never cloying or too sweet and in the deep drydown it becomes a really elegant, slightly gourmand fig weaved through with an airy, weightless sandalwood note.
Scent Profile – Pear, Grapes, Cherry, Almond, Fig, 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.
