    This fragrance, together with a bunch of others such as Nu EDP, Envy, Rush, Envy For Men, several Donna Karan*s* (to name only a few among the most *recent* ones), are the reason why around *twothousandandsomething* I've lost most of the interest in designers compositions. If I think about what designers have meant to fragrance in the past, I struggle to understand all these recent trends in mass market perfumery.

    Theorema is not simply gorgeous, it would actually put on shame 90% of today's niche offerings. Responsible of fragrances such as Eau De Cartier, Narcisso Rodriguez For Her, Archives 69, a bunch of Jo Malones, Guerlains and Muglers, this is Christine Nagel in full effect. A thick spicy-oriental loaded with cardamom, pepper and nutmeg built around a resiny-ambery base and loads of smooth / warm woods. Fantastic juxtaposition provided by the citrusy opening which is probably one of the most long lasting lemon notes ever. Extremely complex, incredibly radiant and unbelievably long lasting. Mandatory.

    I love you Theorema in all of your creamy, glorious spiciness..... alas, I am feeling unsatisfied. Our visits, though intense, are so very brief. I am jealous and envious of the others you choose to spend more time with. I can no longer live like this and must sadly bring our affair to an inevitable close.... sigh.....

    It's really true, the time makes worse everything. After the orrible new Fan di Fendi Pour Homme (2012) i was smitten by a great serendipity, the old Fendi Theorema (1998), an amazing surprise. Elegant and erotic. Creamy and bold at once (it's not so easy in my opinion). Really an interesting floral/oriental, warm, highly spicy and enveloping. You can detect a sort of spicy and balmy orange/patchouli combo with a wonderful soapy ylang-ylang-rose trail. I detect the pepper and the yummy spiciness in general (cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, may be cumin). The aroma is absolutely unisex and delightful. The patchouli is the king, an ambery and comforting spicy/patchouli surrounded by balsams, light woods and soft musks. The real secret of this fragrance? In my opinion the secret is a sort of sensual acidity (similar to the one i detect in Costume National Scent Intense) which is absolutely erotic-carnal and "sweaty" but attractive in its spicy magnetism. It's an hard to find gem which i recommend everybody to dig around if possible. I'm going to buy a bottle as i can.

    Dry creamy gingerbread and mellowed candied ginger with something delicately sparkling and floral, like an orchid.
    In the dry down the incense emerges and it is truly beautiful, like the soft smell within a church when no one is there. There is no powder in this incense, just warm silky amber.
