Roja Parfums Launches Profumi D’Amore at Paris Gallery

  • “Be the flame, not the moth” – Casanova

Each perfume from the Profumi D’Amore collection evokes the different chapters of a love story – from the very first moment passion is ignited (My Love), to a declaration of love (I Love You), ending with a love affair that lasts forever (I Will Love You Forever).

A passionate love letter in fragrant form, each scent it presented in a beautiful red lacquer box lined with white silk Crêpe de Chine.

“I will always remember hearing a story I was once told about Casanova grating Ambergris into his drinking chocolate. Ambergris is one of the most sensual of all ingredients and has always been highly prized for its aphrodisiacal qualities. I was inspired by this small yet enticing fact about history’s most famous lover having so much passion in his being that he would turn a stimulating mixture of Cacoa and Vanilla into an aphrodisiacal elixir to fuel his passion.

Every perfume I make has a story and I bring that story to life through a carefully crafted composition of the finest quality raw materials. This collection plays out a harmonious love story of burning passion and romantic tenderness. Ambergris, Cacao and Vanilla are found at the core of all three. These materials are highly addictive to the senses in the same way as when you meet someone and fall in love with them, you quite literally become addicted to them. Stimulating Ginger is also present in each, as is a prominent note of Orris – which comes from the legendary Florentine Iris.

The collection follows the order of a poem and what I hope you notice is that as the proclamations of love become more pronounced and passionate, so do the depth of raw materials, growing richer and more sensual in each creation. The first, Amore Mio is a very smooth and creamy Oriental with lots of flowers. Ti Amo is an interpretation of the former but it is deeper and richer, creamier and more sensual as the Cacoa note comes to the fore – it is as smooth as hearing someone say, “I love you”. The last, Un Amore Eterno is even richer still. It has a lot of Ginger and is swathed in huge volumes of Orris…it quite literally radiates passion.” – Master Perfumer Roja Dove[ads1]
