Profumum Aquae Nobilis – A Fine Essence of the Masculine Perfumery

Profumum Aquae Nobilis_100ml_EdP

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.
