Heavy, fruity, cloying and horrible!
I didn't expect to love this inexpensive unnoticed perfume but I do. While the initial burst of honeysuckle, osmanthus flowers and voluptuous peaches and plums can convey a brash flirtatious personality, the sort of women who wear Versace (shudder...), it mellows quickly to a warm and delicious skin scent that hugs the body while giving off wafts of pretty, coquettish florals. The note that makes it smooth and outstandingly sweet is the honeyed osmanthus - the sweetness is neither pungent nor sugary/vanilla-ry, but soothing, intimate and rounded. It seems to be anchored in a long-lasting base of white musk, which perfectly carries, echoes and continues the beautifully blended top and middle notes of fresh flowers and succulent fruits. The sillage and longevity are amazing, yet Il Bacio gently and sensually perfumes the air like a garden does. It appears to attract men like bees to nectar - they all want a closer sniff!
Compote! This is a great fragrance for someone who's nostalgic for good, sweet, old-fashioned fruit compote- just add cream and cinnamon! The white flowers are a pleasant backdrop to all those ripe fruits- a whiff and you're back at gramma's table= dessert, anyone? A fun scent.
I used to love this fragrance back in the 90's! It's still in production? I'll have to reaquaint myself w/ this.
Moderation and distance... that's all I'm saying. Grandma in church, but a non-denominational service. In May....... Maybe earlier for Easter. That's it! Easter.
