Out of our five senses, the smell is undoubtedly the most significant one. The aroma tells us a lot about a person and his or her personality. Fragrances have the power to render an individual or environment unique and this special feature inspires Officina delle Essenze to make own creations. This is a story of a small perfumery in the heart of Rome that became a family-owned business and made an absolute value out of Made in Italy.
It all begins in the 50s, the Lembo family has a perfumery among the streets of central Rome. We are in a full economic boom, middle-class ladies do handicraft shopping and first small cars cross Bel paese. There is still the scent of Dolce Vita in the air, the Fiat Cinquecento is a status symbol and Italy feels the eyes of the world. Foreigners admire Cinecittà Studios and ask for Italian products, unique in their quality and style. Shortly after the creative spirit of the time, made of intuition, luxury and uniqueness, will be exported all over the world under the name of Made in Italy.
The dream of Maurizio Lembo begins in this fascinating atmosphere. Inspired by the experience gained in his father’s perfumery where women consumers could purchase historic brands like Guerlain, Coty, Caron, Penhaligon’s, Creed, Chanel and Lanvin, Maurizio established his own company. From afternoons spent in the family shop, the founder keeps the allure of the past and conveys it to his creations. The brand Officina delle Essenze was born in 2001 and now it is operating in the niche and artistic perfume sector.
