Mint & patchouli tranquility
Picture a crisp November morning, autumnal tree leaves encased in a fragile frost shell, crackling gently underfoot. The air smells cool and earthy, and the landscape is blanketed in soothing silence. Forest nearby, no other human soul around a ten mile radius. Nature and you. Alone and calm, attuned to your breathing and your survival instincts. The sudden cry of a bird a prey moves your body in a diferent direction just in time to catch a glimpse of its majestic, rapid flight. It is a moment of perfect beauty and you’re aware of it.
Wild, untamed, windswept and finally warm and cozy like returning to a glowing fire in the hearth of a log cabin, “Thundra” offers quite an atmospheric patchouli experience, by pairing it with mint and some creamy white musks. That creates a kind of opaline patchouli, at the same time cool, clear, but also somehow foggy, milky and warm. The fragrance opens with a chilled, smooth vibe of sweet mint which in conjunction with the camphorous aspects of the patchouli also creates the illusion of lavender. These are the mauve and green reflections of the opal. The patchouli is geting stronger and earthier, with a hint of warmth, like steam rising off the forest floor. These are the red-brown flashes of the opal. And finally, cloudy translucency is provided by the layer of clean, mellow, ambery musk. Meditative, serene, perfect!
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.
