Profumum, the Italian niche line owned by the Durante family has in its portfolio mainly unisex perfumes; as a result I was surprised and delighted to smell from time to time a dedicated masculine scent. And given that I was not able to test each and every one of their considerable line of fragrances, I should say that until now, all proved to be worthy of entering my “to buy” list.
Following Arso, an excellent men fragrance which screams wood smoke, I had lately the opportunity to indulge my olfactory senses with Eccelso, a masculine perfume described as aromatic fougere and introduced near the end of 2011. Advertised on the official website with the phrases “Elegant and nonchalant. Walking through the vernissage’s crowd, a haze wraps him and attraction renders him even more mysterious than what he seemed from far away.”, Eccelso represents an elegant creation suitable for a man with innate classic style.
From the first moments subsequent to spraying a couple of whiffs on my wrist, I felt overwhelmed by its refreshing accord of citrus (the unmistakable bergamot), coupled with a hint of nutmeg. Then, after a couple of minutes, the heart revealed a soft layer of magnolia, followed upon dry down by a sensuous and luxurious base that encompassed Mysore sandalwood, patchouli and labdanum resin and generated the kind of warm feeling and profundity that defines a complex fragrance. Eccelso exhibits an abundant character and boosts with confidence, therefore in case you’re searching for a truly amazing masculine scent, look no further because this is it.
The flacon that holds the fragrance is represented by Profumum’s signature bottle, famous for its rectangular shapes with rounded edges and the stopper that has the look of noble wood. The liquid sports a shade of beige, and as always, the name of the scent appears printed in the upper part of the bottle. Overall, Eccelso is one of the most masculine scents that I had the pleasure to review lately, which turns it into the ideal choice for a special person.
