Perfumer Maurizio Lembo wanted to make a perfume that captured the essence of a gentleman. He was inspired by his own father and grandfather, whom he calls "gentlemen always," and Galantuomo is the result. It starts with a crisp green and citrus opening that dazzles in its clarity. Anise and a host of warm notes round out the composition into something truly unique: warm and cool, a little tart and a little sweet. Galantuomo is perfect confidence, ease, approachability, and optimism, and we can't get enough. We also can't get enough of this incredibly generous packaging: Hidden under the 100 ml bottle is another 30 ml, a refillable travel atomizer, and a silver funnel. Maurizio is a gentleman indeed. Notes include tangerine, anise, nutmeg, ginger, frankincense, liquorice, cloves, cinnamon, clary sage, vetiver, vanilla, and oakmoss.
Bottega Profumiera was founded by Maurizio Lembo, who grew up working in his father's perfume shop.
