Massive, indolic and erotic. Such a fragrance resulting (to many sensitive noses) probably an "overly equipped" and oppressing one while under my humble nose this aroma appears finally carnal and widely intriguing. Lucky to find it stored in a dusty old shop background in south Italy. Magnetic is a musky-oriental Ode to the olfactory note of ylang-ylang or to be more explicative it projects a complex and pungent floral miasm (with an indolic tuberose-lily-jasmine accord joined with a leader and heady ylang-ylang) over a musky/woody oriental base arranged by spicy balsams (a notable cinnamon and cloves presence for sure), oakmoss, musk and probably amber/benzoin. There is a baroque spicy-hesperidic side in the perfume, especially in the top (bergamot, mandarine, orange) which provides to turn the aroma out so articulated, slightly angular, decadent and aristocratic (in particular the intense orangy vibe seems to be joyned with something spicy and plummy, may be hints of apricot or cherries). In the same vein as fragrances a la Diva Ungaro, Magot Etro or may be Roccobarocco by Roccobarocco Magnetic is another olfactory witness of a left back glorious age which on the olfactory sphere was epitomized by "huge" and "dreadful" fragrances full of depth, enigma and articulation. Durable on my skin and with a great projection.
