Rosarium by Angela Ciampagna

Named after the Latin name for a church rose window, Rosarium is dedicated the the rose window of the Cathedral of Atri, where Angela Ciampagna’s workshop is based. Defined by the classical styles of it’s time (it was built in 1260 BC) the rose window is the signature symbol of the house, epitomising what is important to the brand in terms of style and geography.

The Rosarium name could be a red herring considering it does not list rose as one of it’s ingredients. Using vanilla and incense in the base of the fragrance certainly aligns Rosarium with a traditional church setting but its the iris rhizome in the heart and the honeyed tobacco flowers in the opening that will out leaving a sweetened rose impression.
