Spiced plum and soft leather, with almost resin-like woody notes. Very oriental, but heavy enough on the wood to keep it from being too much. Almost animalic notes in the dry down where the labdanum gets strong. Interesting, ornate and probably lyrical. A good story-telling scent for those who wish to have interest and depth in their perfume. It IS a heavy oriental, though, so be careful when …Read more

This is a truly classical chypre. If you like Mitsouko and Jubilation 25 then you will most likely love Profumo . Though reformulated, it still stands as a excellent peachy ,woody ,clean chypre.

Definitely, not worth the price. I must have gone crazy when I bought this. It smelled good when I tried it at the store and the SA was excellent at selling it to me by telling me about how it has 300 different ingredients, blah blah. After wearing it a couple of times, I noticed how headache inducing it was and how much it smells like an old lady scent. The only positive is that my grandma loves …Read more

300 ingredients? I can only smell one--oakmoss, like the drydown of Mitsouko, therefore great. No, make that two--oakmoss and frankincense, and therefore more like DSH Cathedral, still great. You can't have too much oakmoss. You really can't.

First off I LOVE ADP packaging.

I was fortunate enough to get a decant of Profumo in a swap... so, as I often do - I painted about every 6" of my body with a new sampler.... pearl in one spot, amber in one, blanc still residing from this morning... and Profumo on onother wrist.

WOW! This is a powerhouse. It seems to be getting stronger as time passes... Began with …

ok as you can understand by now i'm not a big fan of acqua di parma old products and profumo falls in that category.to me this smells dusty from start to drydown.ican hardly find a faded orange at the top and maybe an old dry rose after 30 min.the dry down gives away the chypre character with oak,mostly.this is an old and not very graceful lady perfume,not for me for sure.

There must be something totaly wrong with me. I just don't get this Profumo at all. I don't understand the raves here. I've got my sample and sitting here completely frustraited. It smells OLD. Old lady, my grand-grand-grand mother, her house would smell like that. I give it 3 lippies only because I think, I do hope, it's just not for me. I agree with Colombina, it also …Read more

This is one I tested and drooled over but didn't purchase not realizing how hard it would be to find. I've kicked myself ever since and it's on my short list of perfumes I have to have. I didn't find it too citrusy either but here is the classification and description from acquadiparma.com:

The fragrance family is Chypre, with bergamot, orange and mandarin top …

Profumo is an absolutely stunning, very complex woodsy/incensey chypre to my nose. I confess I was surprised to find it to be such a masterpiece. The other fragrances I've tried from AdP and their Blu Med line are characterized by a lightness and, frequently, a linearity (not that that's bad - Arancia is one of my favorite oranges of all time, but it's a very straightforward …Read more

This is on my short A-list. It is beautiful from start to finish. There wasn't one wrong note in the entire formulation. One puzzler about Profumo is its classification as a Citrus on the only sites willing to classify it - where did that come from? It could be classified as a chypre, but a citrus?! They must have hit the wrong key under category. I consider this Acqua Di Parma's …Read more
