Gida Profumi: The Interview

Razors in Turin, Italy

A city well known as the centre for business and culture. Turin’s elegant tree-lined boulevards and charming art nouveau cafés make it a popular tourist destination.

Gida Profumi is located close to Via Lagrange, one of the most popular shopping streets in the historical city. Gida is a specialist perfumery that also stocks Bolin Webb razors and grooming accessories. Keen to learn more about the boutique as well as the city, we interviewed Alessandro from Gida Profumi. Here is what he had to say:

What was the inspiration behind the store?

The concept for the store arose out of an olfactory project (one that relates specifically to the sense of smell), envisioned and conceived by founders Daniele Passera and Giuseppe Sorci. For them, perfumery had always been a source of research, with the belief that a product should both encapsulate and transmit its origins.

What kind of products do you sell?

We mainly sell niche perfumes and high quality fragrances; however due to the design element and luxury feel, we decided to extend our range and started selling Bolin Webb razors, they are the only mens razors we stock at this store.

What do you like best about Bolin Webb Razors? 

We only stock products that exceed in quality, Bolin Webb fit the build due to the premium quality materials used to make them.

And finally tell us a bit about the city…

The Italian city of Turin (Torino in Italian) is located in the north of Italy. It was once the seat of the powerful Savoy dynasty. Determined to create a city that rivalled Paris and Vienna, they built beautiful palaces that now act as the focal point of the city, attracting tourists from all around the world. In addition to the monumental buildings, the impressive streetscape is the legacy of some of 17th-century most well known Baroque architects Guarino Guarini and Filippo Juvarra.

If you are visiting Turin, Gida Profumi is located close to the centre of the city on Via Andrea Doria 4bis 10123.
