Caput Mundi

Type: Parfum

This purchase comes with 7 complementary samples.

Caput Mundi is a Woody fragrance for women and men created in 2018 by Paolo Terenzi.


Though woody Caput Mundi still leans towards a unisex fragrance as the bulgarian rose blends very well with the woods. Includes great natural Cambodian oud but the overall smell is still fresh. It's a great under the radar scent if you like slightly challenging scents. You'll definitely stand out. The sillage and longevity are eternal, one tiny spray is all you need. This perfume is close to Emanuel Ungaro Ungaro pour L'Homme III


A black moon (third new moon in a season of four new moons) reveals itself every 19 years, the last one was in 2018 when Caput Mundi (world’s capital) was launched, filling the air in Rome full of the scent of precious woods. For centuries, especially during the glorious era of the Roman Empire, the New Moon has always been considered a symbol of good luck and future prosperity.


Caput Mundi opens on a sweet, mellow, flowery note. Echoes of precious Bulgarian Rose Absolute are combined with Tea Rose and Lily of the Valley, in regal counterpoint to prized Iris supported by the strength of Cabreuva wood, native of Brazil. This gentle, princely head lies on a tenacious and courageous heart of precious black Indian Oudh and Sandalwood, expertly mixed with the Red Patchouli. These woods find strength and emphasis thanks to the acrobatic echoes of Orris and of Sicilian Red Saffron.

Top Notes: Bulgarian rose, Iris, Lily of the Valley, Cabreuva

Heart Notes: Black Indian oudh, Sandalwood, Red Patchouli, Saffron, Orris (Iris Root)

Base Notes: Ambergris, Cedar wood, Cashmere wood, Agarwood, Cambodian oudh
