Hi gang. Omnia Profumi is not a house I’ve taken any notice of. Their perfumes have been around since 2004 but the brand seems to have properly launched in 2009. An Italian jewellery family capitalising on their fame and expanding their business. I’m 100% up for diversification, especially if it pays off for perfumistas.
In a recent order from Australian perfume distributors and sellers LKNU I was sent three samples of the earlier fragrances in the line. Thought you might like to joinmme on initial sniffs?
Omnia Profumi. Three Samples.
Briny spray as you skip across a sunlit sea towards your fishing destination. Clean, fresh, free and glorious. I can feel the wind in my hair, the anticipation of catching dinner for the crew, the fun and camaraderie of spending a day on the sea with buddies.
How are salt and water not mentioned in the notes. The opening is ALL about it. I know it’s probably the ambergris but the whole fragrance has this beautiful rich feel.
The floral heart is only a secondary player on me. It hardly registers with my nose. Maybe it is there to give lift and life rather than be the focus. I bloody love this, so beautiful.
This citrus opens weirdly on me. I’m not sure if it’s the perfume or me. Something a bit wonky.
After about 2 minutes Perdito settles into a pretty citrus underpinned by lightly salted vanilla woods. Think Guerlain Aqua Allegoria style and heft.
This is not my favourite.
WOW! The very first waft of Platino takes me back to the caramel coconut slice my Mum made for us. It’s uncanny. I could be anywhere school age, come home and sit at the kitchen bench, there would miraculously appear a glass or milk or juice and a snack of some kind. Usually Mum, my sister and I would have a chat about the day and give a rundown of our homework needs. In summer it would then be swim time before hitting the books before dinner. Great memories.
The heart is a floral vanilla and dry down soft focus vanilla and some smoke.
Does any one, or more, of these sound like you’d wear it?
None of them sound like ones I would like, but for your enthusiasm, I would give Acqua Marina a try.
YAY! That’s a cool reply. I’d love to hear if you liked it when you do Nose Prose. Fully admitting to LOVING salt in fragrance,
I can’t recall if I tried Platino, but I absolutely love their Madera, which is a delicious caramel scent. I wear it to bed a lot. Their Ambra is very good too. Have never tried the other two but they don’t sound appealing as aquatic and citrus are my two least favourite scent genres.
Salty aquatic is one of my favourites, so I’m definitely;y biased towards them.
I have tried several fragrances from Omnia Profumi. I have tried Platino and liked it. I considered purchasing a decant and may still do so at some point in the future. I’ve tried others from this line and liked a few.
Platino is so unusual, and comes with such a strong memory. I’m glad I have a small decant and will;l definitely use it. There will be time after that to think if a bottle will be needed.
The line has definitely piqued my interest and I will try more.
I want to explore the line more also.

I don’t think I’ve ever heard about this brand, so I didn’t test anything from them and I don’t expect I will, unless I hear that you went on and purchased a FB or I came across this line in the distant future when we’re allowed to travel again. But the first one and the third sound quite appealing – at least for testing purposes. But not enough to pay for samples.
