In light of the fact that I loved almost (with one exception: Santalum!) each and every one of Profumum fragrances sampled so far, I’m always filled with high expectations when it comes to review something so extraordinary. This time, is about Aquae Nobilis, a masculine perfume “par excellence” and one of the finest scents dedicated to men, that I had the pleasure to sniff lately.
Introduced in December 2009 in the same time with Oxiana, Aquae Nobilis is a woody aromatic fragrance that deserves all the praises for being exactly the type of male perfume dedicated to noble characters. If you’re already familiar with Profumum, you should know that most of the time, they deliver high-quality scents with exceptional persistence. And that the particular trait of the house is rendering a straight approach on one note. However, this time, apart from the official description that mentioned “the real deal in vetiver scent”, I stumble upon a more complex creation that produced me the type of emotion always encountered in special perfumes.
Aquae Nobilis does not bring forward the classic vetiver accord present in Guerlain’s Vetiver, instead re-shaped one generous theme. The combination of notes in Aquae Nobilis is so well crafted that you instantly wish this scent to become a permanent member in your perfume wardrobe. After sampling Grey Vetiver from Tom Ford I imagined that no one could ever surprise me again with a perfume dedicated to vetiver. Well, I was wrong! And in spite of the fact that these two perfumes are quite different, at this time I prefer the breath of innovation exhibited by Profumum.
As is always the case with the scents from this Italian niche perfumery house, the liquid comes in Profumum’s signature bottle, this time the transparent glass allowing us to observe a bright yellow color. The listed notes are: geranium, vetiver, musk and absinth. Overall, I strongly feel that Aquae Nobilis is a fragrance dedicated to the special men from today’s world, which is day by day flooded with more samples of bad taste.
