New from La Via del Profumo - and your chance to win.


A new Scent by La Via del Profumo, “Mecca Balsam” has been added to the “Scents Of The Soul” collection. As with all his products, perfumer Dominique Dubrana has composed this from 100% natural ingredients.

The inspiration for Mecca Balsam came from his own journey to Mecca. He composed it to encapsulate the olfactory signature of the Holy City itself and “the trail of a million scents in the wake of the pilgrims”.

At its centre lies Labdanum and it features also tonka, frankincense Indian tuberose, tobacco and damask Rose.

It is intended for men and women alike. It is available now from at 34 Euros for 16ml and 92 Euros for 50ml.
