Exquisite fragrance for home and body
In the heart of the wonderful Italian city of Florence, you will find the headquarters of Dr Vranjes, a pharmacist, chemist and cosmetician who we, at De Nimes, know, can translate emotions into scent. Dr Franjes Firanze combines natural ingredients and the finest essential oils to create the most amazingly scented fragrances for home and body. He discovered Florence as a child but fell truly in love with it when he met his wife Anna Maria.. For Paolo Vranjes, Florence is a source of inspiration which many years ago established itself as the city of perfume, One greatest fan was Catherine de’ Medici, wife of the king of France who gladly wore, and spoke openly about her love of Fiorentina perfume.
At De Nimes we offer a wide range of Dr Vranjes fragrances, using them every day to infuse our shop with a wonderful, welcoming smell. Our favourite is the ginger and lime room fragrance.
The culture of perfumes was literally infused in me,
My grandfather was a silk trader with a passion for essences, and as a child I would watch him in the room where he kept his collection of perfumes which he searched for on his travels around the world. I was enraptured by that universe of rare, transparent bottles with their unusual, evocative scents, and I was fascinated by the secrets they held within them.
Where were they from? What was so special about them? And how was a new magic created every time they were mixed?
Then one day my grandfather realised I was there, and with an understanding smile, he invited me to join him while making me promise not to touch anything. After that, we spent many more days together. My passion for essences and my culture were born in that room.Paolo Vranjes
