Dilmun is the paradise of ancient Mesopotamia, where the sun shines and stories are told. Dilmun opens with an explosion of fresh citrus and continues quickly into a heart of neroli. In the base vanilla, resins and aromatic wood for warmth.
Quote from review on Dilmun from Now Smell This: "Dilmun opens on bright, sweet citrus and orange blossom tinged with green. Despite the sweetness it is a bit sharp until it settles: after that it is very soft, and as it drys down it gets warmer and richer. It is neither sheer nor heavy, but somewhere in between. If I close my eyes and breathe deep, I can smell hints of the rose and other floral notes, and the vaguest whisper of incense over a pale wood base, but to my mind all the other notes exist only to highlight the orange blossom and neroli.
It strikes a perfect balance between sweet and dry, depth and clarity. Orange blossom and neroli are among my favorite fragrance notes, and they ring out clear and true to the end."
Lorenzo Villoresi from Florence got inspired to distill essential oils and start making perfumes himself in 1991 by his many trips to the Middle East and its rich variety of fragrances.
His talent for creating perfumes was confirmed in 2006 when he won the Prix Francois Coty. This is thé most important acknowledgement for the artistic career of a perfumer, and he was the first to win this price as an independent perfumer!
The most loved scent from Lorenzo is Teint de Neige. A unique to the core powdery fragrance.
When visiting Florence, a trip to Lorenzo's atelier and museum at Via de'Bardi is surely worth your while. He works from his family home, which has a wonderful view over the river the Arno. In the house next to his own, Lorenzo opened a Centre-Academy of the Art of Perfumes in 2018, which is a knowledge centre regarding scents. With a museum, fragrance garden and education on scents and perfumes.
