It is the evocation of when, in 1500, the district of Trastevere was considered "the oven of Rome" and was teeming with bakeries and young girls. You can imagine slowly walking through the narrow streets of the neighborhood with the scents of sweets and bread coming out from the small windows. This fragrance has a warm, gourmand olfactory construction and it moves around the tones of davana, whose taste characteristics of licorice and coffee are enhanced here by tones of chestnuts and vanilla. A truly extraordinary jasmine accompanies the bouquet.
Trastevere features top notes of vanilla and licorice; middle notes of vanilla, caramel and jasmine; and base notes of vanilla, davana and chestnut cream. It is an extrait de parfum.
PANTHEON ROMA TRASTEVERE REVIEWS
Fragrantica: Absolutely delicious, intoxicatingly sweet gorgeous gourmand. This smells like a cozy Italian sweets and a coffee shop, where you can taste creamy chestnut vanilla deserts and at the same time you get a hint of freshly brewed coffee in the air, not quite the coffee taste, more like its foam. I got the sweetest compliment on a fragrance to this day about Trastevere. I was at a kids playground with my little one day and suddenly a 3-4 y.o. boy stopped playing with the others, looked around and yelled: "It smells so nice here! What is this, mommy, what is it, smells so nice!!". Guilty as charged and being somewhat close (so obviously it was me) I asked him, "What does it smell like?" "Biscuits!! I looove biscuits!!!" Beast projection and longevity.
Fragrantica: Nice, very good fragrance. Not powerful but just right. Very relaxing smell. So far the best I've tried from this house. Smells like fresh baked bread.
Parfumo: This scent is super sweet, almost sticky sweet, but it's also a pleasant warming fragrance. It starts out with a very realistic chestnut flour note, but then the vanilla takes over and gives it a sugary twist. The vanilla effect reminds me of Dries Van Noten, but Trastevere remains sweeter and a little bit fruity. It's very gourmand indeed.
