(a once-bustling main street in Pompeii)
Bunches of fresh basil atop bittersweet labdanum with an air of warmer herbs and roots, and just the slightest hint of lime.
All fragrance components in this blend are natural botanicals.
Centering around Campania prior to 62CE, this collection is based on actual ancient Roman perfumes and fragrant flora, with a few slight variations added in. Some ingredients which were often used as skin scents, such as basil and labdanum, are in several blends, and we chose mostly plants native to the region, even though they did have imported light botanicals, resins, and other fragrant ingredients once trade was established with distant lands (or they went over and conquered...). While these fragrances do contain a carrier of isopropyl myristate, none of the fragrance ingredients are synthetic.This does mean a heightened chance for skin sensitivity, and we recommend spot testing prior to wearing.
Please see the Perfume category page for information about our blends and resting recommendations.
