Patchouli through & through



Patchouli, Amber


This is unmistakeably patchouli. And good one at that. All the complex nuances of the material are revealing themselves in a decadent swirl of rich aromas ranging from mentholated to caramelised. It smells like finest dark chocolate mint truffles stored in a beautifully carved sandalwood box placed next to lit incense sticks.

Straight up patchouli has always been the scent of choice for rebels and hippies, and one of the most likely things to permeate the air around the neighbourhood in the sixties and seventies. Many people turned up their noses at it, but fear not, the earthy funk that gave patchouli an infamous reputation has been dialed down a lot in the Profvmvm version, and a sweet caramel amber glow takes its place, taming the unruly kinks into pliable, velvety soft wonder. Mellow and refined, yet sizzling with sex appeal, “Patchouly” is a truly satisfying choice on many levels: it has depth, warmth, richness, elegance and a tremendous lasting power on skin. Let yourself enveloped!

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.
