Lounging in the immaculate gardens, removed from the constant sounds of Pompeii's bustling streets, lazily running your hand across the fragrant leaves, slightly weighed down by a new gold and malachite bracelet.
Herbal, slightly sweet fresh basil with a bare hint of soil. Not minty or overly sharp, close to the scent left on your hands after picking the fresh leaves. Please note: Originally formulated in 2017, but not released with the Ancient Rome collection as we deemed it too simplistic at the time. Since then we have had requests for a true basil fragrance. Which is a little tricky because there are many varieties of basil which all smell (and taste) somewhat different, many having a licorice/anise-like taste (Italian Large Leaf or Spicy Globe for instance). So the basil from your grocery store may differ from what you've grown, which may differ greatly from the basil(s) commonly used for its fragrant properties 2000 years ago well before use as culinary herb. Unlike the other perfumes in our Ancient Rome collection, this blend is not entirely natural botanicals, about 60%.
