ACQUA DI SALE
If ladies want to smell like a mermaid and gentlemen like they’ve just been rapturously embraced by one, then, by all means go ahead and spritz “Acqua di Sale” on. In our humble opinion, this is one of the undeniable highlights in the Profumum Roma collection, a sensuous salty-sweet perfume of great refinement, subtlety and a fairytale like mystery.
Our bodies are up to sixty percent water and life appeared for the very first time in the world’s oceans, so no wonder we feel a primal attraction and unending fascination towards the sea: the vast expanse of it which draws us in and scares us at the same time, the briny, iodine like smell, the promised solitude of a deserted beach, the refreshing, damp breeze that always seems to clarify the mind, no matter how thorny the issue we’re dealing with might be.
“Aqua di Sale” feels warmer and sweeter than Heeley Parfums “Sel Marin”, another great seashore inspired scent, but whereas the latter evokes a more rugged, wild marine landscape, ” Acqua di Sale” is like plunging down in balmy waters, sunlight streaming through the gentle waves shining down on the eerie, silent world below. Down there, it is easy to believe that mermaids are real, undulating gracefully amongst seaweeds, watching for the next beautiful adventurer.
Directly from Rome we bring you PRO FUMUM 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 craftmanship 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 PRO FUMUM 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 wonderfullly simple at heart.
