    Default Profvmum Roma favourites

    What is your favourite fragrance from this house? I think they make som great fragrances. I own Victrix and Olibanum. I can`t use them very often, because they are a bit oily, and makes spots on my white shirts that want go away..

    I haven't tried too many yet. But I do like Volo AZ 686 - although I know a lot of other people don't.

    Santalum ( old, dark formula) and Patchouly I thought were excellent. As good as they are though, the price point is a tough sell.

    I would like to try more from Profumum, esp. Santalum & Olibanum.

    I bought Antico Caruso. You may well laugh (cue Le Male comment) but I love it. Old school barber shop creamy almond - and that's about it. It's a comfort scent, great in winter. Silly price, really, but there you go.

    I love Thvndra from this house!

    One of my absolute favorites, it has all the green, earthy pungency I love on top of a really fine white musk drydown, smells extremely classic to me, and people notice and comment when I wear it!

    I have also tried Victrix, Ichnusa, Fumidus, and Patchouli from this house, and found all very high quality, but Thvndra is the one that got me, it was love at first sniff.

    They are very expensive, but if you find one that speaks to you as Thvndra does to me and that you want to use frequently, I think you'll find the bottle a bargain because I only use two small sprays at a time, and that amount lasts all day and into the night. This is one perfume house whose creations can never be said to suffer from poor longevity.

    Is it only me that have problems with spots on clothes after using those fragrances? Has someone else notice it?

    You're not the only one Oslo. Their juice is on the oily side and the 2 I mentioned will stain fabric if you're not careful.

    Fumidus, Thundra, Aquae Nobilis, Acqua Viva and Santalum are all just wonderful, but the high prices keep me from exploring this house further.

    I had a bottle of this when it first came out and loved it, however since discovering i Profumi di Firenze Limone di Sicilia, I find this far better, longer lasting and a lot cheaper.

    Haven't noticed this problem with Thvndra, but it's more or less a clear juice. It definitely has an oily texture to it though. I can imagine staining to be a problem with the darker-colored ones.

    I own Victrix and Olibanum and enjoy them very much. I haven't noticed the oily/stain aspect, but I apply very small doses. The Olibanum is amazing, one of the best frankincense scents I have found.

    Agreed. Olibanum is my definitive favourite fragrance from this company. It`s challenging, unique, and very artistic. A true work of art, and total unique in my collection!

    I love Antico Caruso. When I first tried it, I got the Le Male similarity big time, but now that I've worn it many times, it is quite different to me. I wear it a lot.

    Smooth creamy almond. Very clean scent with presence. Pretty simplistic scent. Lasts all day. It is indeed on the oily side when applied.

    I know they're pricey and they take a lot of knocks, but it is first rate juice.
