Olibanum by Profumum Roma
1.5ml Eau de Parfum Sample
Olfactive Family – Floral Amber
Stone walls, gothic archways, flickering candles and chanting voices – all of these are evoked by Olibanum’s fierce opening salvo of incense. This austere beauty mellows into a calm and soothing scent with soft orange blossom emphasising the airy, floating aspects of the incense and a base of warm and reassuring sandalwood. Lovely and wearable, but with an undercurrent of power and mystery that keeps it infinitely intriguing.
Olfactive Scent Profile – Orange Blossom, Sandalwood, Incense, Myrrh
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.
