This is a very reassuring, classical composition with a distinct barber shop vibe, achieved as it’s always the case with Profumum, through the use of high quality raw materials and a simple, legible structure.

It has a leisurely “dolce far niente” feel, the slower pace of the weekend and the smell of a styling salon for gentlemen, windows wide open in warm summer air, pomades, shaving soaps and herbal lotions wafting their cool, creamy odours around the busy barbers and their relaxed customers. There’s the happy smell of warm, non sanitised cleanliness and the hum of anticipation in getting ready for perhaps a night out, dinner party with friends or a romantic date. Or maybe just offering oneself a moment’s peace, unwinding at the end of a week’s work.

A fragrance of delicate masculinity, with sweet lavender notes melting into the gentle orange blossom and almond heart, finishing on a base of dusty sandalwood and comfortable musky amber, “Antico Caruso” is a wonderful nuzzling scent, with a friendly, retro elegant aura.

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.
