Notte Romana is a rather nice scent except that I dislike the use of galbanum in it. The galbanum in the opening seems to overbalance the florals – I totally enjoy the florals and wish I didn’t have to smell them under the galbanum. The florals that stand out to me are the lily and the rose. I do not notice any orris in the accord. The dry down is excellent: A very competent sandalwood joined to a nicely sweet tonka bean and musk. The scent is quite light but it has very good longevity. Notte Romana, like most of the Borsari scents I have smelled, presents a genuine Italian elegance in a discreet and refreshing package.
It is a very modern scent despite it was created in 1939; light, informal, fresh, transparent, a "blue" scent. White and pink lilies + spices (anise, rosemary) + clover. Similar to L'Eau par Kenzo or the "blue sweater" by S.Rykiel.
