Acquae Nobilis by Profumum

After sampling this a few times, the first thing I noticed about Acquae Nobilis was the implementation of a subtle absinthe. It immediately reminded me of Macassar's rendition of the note, but much more low key than the Rochas. Allow me, once again, to thank my friend AnthonyDG for his generosity.

No......Acquae Nobilis does not smell like Macassar. It's simply the opening note I'm referring to. That only lasts a few minutes before blending into a dry and somewhat grassy accord. The interplay of geranium and vetiver is what this fragrance is all about. The absinthe note is well played and adds a dimension that would otherwise be lacking in this linear scent.

Profumum has a proclivity for simple structure and rich implementation. Usually three or four notes of a denser nature seem to do it for them. I've found I like their mindset only because what they use is quality material. Like I've mentioned in other reviews, it doesn't mean I'll buy it or deem it a worthy addition to my wardrobe. The uncomplicated nature of their creations, coupled with excellent longevity, makes for a very comfortable ( albeit predictable) wear. There are times I want noticeable progressions in what I choose to wear........and other times simplicity is in order.

Acquae Nobilis is a very nice scent. It's not worth $240 per bottle to me, but once again I must say that if this house would release 30ml's, they would have more sales. Smooth, earthy and slightly grassy is the best way I can describe Acquae Nobilis in a nutshell. Thumbs up from Aromi for the scent and thumbs down for the price point.

  1. I haven't tried this one yet, but their Ninfea is to die for (IMHO). And yes, I wish they could sell their beauties in smaller bottles...sigh!

  2. Hi Bloody Frida. I have yet to try Ninfea but it looks interesting enough to put on the must try list. Thanks for the heads up.

    Hell.....I want to try everything from Profumum because they all smell great.
