During the 1st-3rd centuries AD the Roman Empire ensured that fossilized amber was once again prized and fashionable as it was once during the bronze age. Amber was imported, as before, from the Baltic Sea via the rivers of Germania. But unlike the bronze age, the tribes in the region were no longer trading only the raw material but the actual finished pieces of art, which were sold at a much higher price. Back in Rome, amber was not only used in fine jewelry but was also used to decorate public spaces like amphitheaters and even gladiators' clothes and weapons. This newly established trade route stretched from the Baltic Sea to Aquileia on the Adriatic coast and is known today as the Amber Road. The Romans in return supplied the tribes with gold and silver coins, glass and possibly exotics spices and woods from far reaches of the world.

  • We only use the highest quality natural and synthetic materials from reputable suppliers in all of our products. The word synthetic in perfume is often misunderstood and gets a bad rep because it is manmade, but many of the strictest regulations in perfume come from natural materials! With that being said, Momento perfumes are not IFRA compliant as we do not want to be restricted by using inferior materials when there are far more superior ones. One example of that is oakmoss. We use a beautiful and natural oakmoss material in Hoi An and if we were to replace that material with a synthetic one like Veramoss/ Eveyleen the perfume would not be up to our standards. With that being said, we are always on the hunt for new and exciting materials, and if a new material comes along that is IFRA compliant and retains the characteristic of the restricted material we will gladly make the switch.


    WE RECOMMEND TO ALWAYS DO A SKIN PATCH TEST BY SPRAYING A SMALL SECTION OF YOUR INNER ARM AND WAIT TO SEE IF THERE IS A REACTION. DO NOT USE IF REDNESS OR IRRITATION OCCURS (Only a small number of people will show reaction) If a reaction occurs, stop using the product immediately and wash with soap and water to clean the affected area. If self treatment is not effective, consult your medical provider. Perfume is not for consumption. Keep away from eyes and mucous membranes.


    We, "Momento Perfumery", assume no liability for any claims arising out of the use or misuse of these perfumes. Keep all perfumes out of reach of children. If you are pregnant or nursing a baby, have heart disease, epilepsy, high blood pressure, diabetes, or any other medical condition that can be affected by essential oils or fragrances, please seek the advice of a health professional before using perfumes.
