Battito d’ali means “the beating of wings” and implies an elusive, fragile quality. The delicate fluttering of a passing butterfly, or, in this case – angels hovering nearby. Creating a magical fleeting moment of feeling protected and cherished and free of worries. Opening with a strong dose of myrrh, this initially seems very human – sharp and vaguely medicinal. Then the heart piercing radiance of ethereal orange blossom. Lifts us up and a delicate dusting of soft cocoa powder and sweet. Gentle vanilla blend with the myrrh to create something heavenly.
This is powdery and gorgeous – the gourmand notes are handled with a light hand and meld with the other elements without dominating them. This does not seem like eating a cake, but rather like passing by a room. Where many cakes have been baked and the sweetness has become part of the air itself. If you could wrap that air around you like a cozy blanket to fend off melancholy, it would be like wearing this exquisite scent. No one knows what angels smell like, of course – and we imagine that everyone’s angel would be scented differently – but the angels in our dreams will now smell like this — dreamy, otherworldly and infinitely comforting.
Profumum comes to us from Rome, but its origins stretch further back to a small town called Sant Elena Sannita and a family with a long history of being artisans. When Celestino and Lucia Durante left Sant Elena for Rome after the Second World War, they took a pride of craftsmanship and history that they passed on to their offspring. They opened a tiny storefront, which over time grew into a chain of stores, featuring curios, hand-made soaps, fragrances and beauty products and this chain of shops was passed down to the grandchildren of Celestino and Luisa, who decided in 1996 to start a line of exclusive fragrances. These scents are exquisitely crafted to evoke emotions, memories and a sense of their beloved Italy. These rich and layered fragrances are designed to work equally well on men and women, and, amazingly, they really do. We are proud to introduce to you the wonderful scents of Profumum.
