Myrtle, Cut Grass
It seems we can’t stop thinking about gems when we’re wearing Profvmvm fragrances, as many of them have such an intense glow and clarity of colour that this association becomes unavoidable. In the case of “Ichnusa”, the green flame of the emerald is the first thing our mind “sees”.
The fragrance was inspired by the island of Sardinia, with its sandy beaches, mountainous interiour and a bounty of wild life and aromatic vegetation.
And let’s not forget fig trees with their promise of moist, sweet pink flesh bursting with figgy goodness, by the way figs are absolutely amazing with some nice ricotta and a drizzle of honey. After all, enjoyment of perfume goes hand in hand with enjoyment of food, and “Ichnusa” would be perfect for an evening of fine dining, as its palate cleansing verdancy will never make you queasy. It starts so fresh and crisp, like the cool morning breeze carrying over to your window the scents of the landscape: freshly cut grass, sweetly camphoraceous myrtle, dewy fig leaves. Slowly the scent is warming up to a sultry, sensuous mist of ripe figs and creamy, soft woods, yet it never loses the green bite that made it feel so tart and energizing in the first place.
Sometimes we think it’s even better than emeralds!
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.
