Lacura, the name of this perfume extrait sounds a bit like Latin or some magic language for ‘protection or cure’.
It’s an uplifting nectarous woody citrus formula that has the complete set of wonderful perfume materials from the bitter orange tree: bigarade oil from the fruit, neroli and orange blossom absolute from the bloom and the fresh woody petigrain from leaves and twigs. That citrus and fresh woody plenty is layered with voluminous modern musks (velvety Velutone), gleaming vanilla, caramel and benzoin.
In the times when most people still believed in the magic of scent, orange blossom was considered to be a symbol/good charm for marital harmony and bliss (and often it’s still part of brides’ bouquets) and also an aphrodisiac.
Mendittorosa still believe in perfume magic crafting their blends in the old town of Napoli and Lacura is their recipe for lifting moods and happy dreams.
