Reviews of Teatro Olfattivo di Parma : Bell'Antonio

Spartan two note perfume of pipe tobacco and coffee notes. Very simple, very to the point and excellent at that! Evokes memory images of my time in Paris or Florence sitting outside a cafe with my coffee and listening to the heated debates of smokers around me. Well done.

An excellent synthesis of coffee and pipe tobacco, warm but not too sweet. The note of coffee is that of roasted beans, redolent, with a hint of espresso. It is successfully paired with an understated dry pipe tobacco note. The overall impression is that of an abstract gourmand, dry and rich, but also light. Bell'Antonio stays linear throughout on my skin, with discreet but discernible sillage, and excellent duration of over eight hours.

As it is unusually low key and not bombastic, it can be worn several days in a row - a great 'comfort scent'. Even though sillage is soft, others will notice it on you in close quarters. Bell'Antonio is defined by its gentle elegance, it does not smell synthetic at all, and is very refined. It does remind me a bit of Fumerie Turque, but is more cosy and inviting.

Bell'Antonio's demeanour is introspective, and it conjures up an image of a day spent at home with books at the arrival of winter. I also feel it successfully bridges the past and the present. It is not perhaps special or unique, but it is lovely.

Hilde Soliani Bell'Antonio involves a simple pairing, coffee and tobacco, and doesn't add much else, not that that's a bad thing. For example, unlike many other coffee and/or tobacco scents, this fragrance is not noticeably sweet. So if someone has a problem with the sweetness of, say, Mugler A*Men Pure Coffee or Burberry London, Bell'Antonio offers an option that takes the coffee and tobacco without the sweetness.

Certainly this is a cold-weather-leaning option, as well, but since it's not a tremendous powerhouse, one can try to pull it off on a summer evening if they so dare.

Performance is very good and this could easily be a winter signature scent for a man, but at the standard HS pricing of $160 for 100ml (on Luckyscent) it's a tough sell for, but I could easily see it being quite popular and its consensus seems positive, accordingly.

This is definitely a masculine scent! But that doesn't mean women can't wear it. If you're a fan of coffee and/or tobacco you must try this!

Sure this fragrance is simplistic, but it's very deep and satisfying. The burst of freshly dark roasted coffee is very pure and realistic, it's like you just walked to the kitchen smelling the freshly brewed coffee, bitter and aromatic.

The tobacco becomes more prominent as the scent progresses, it's also fresh unlit pipe tobacco, very dry but very pleasant.

The note list is very true, all I really smell is the coffee and tobacco, if there are supporting casts I'm not able to pick them out, but it's probably not worth while to pick them out anyway.

This is a reference tobacco fragrance!

A stunning combination of roasted coffee and pipe tobacco - not really sweet on my skin initially and tremendously convincing. In spite of the classic combination this does not really seem old-fashioned but quite contemporary. After a while the tobacco rescinds a bit and the coffee is in the foreground, but later the coffee becomes sweeter and the pipe tobacco is stronger again, and sweeter too, with touches of vanilla and spice. Very good silage and projection, and a superb longevity of ten hours. Superb and great in winter.

A really good and solid masculine fragrance that unfortunately doesn't last and project that much!
The opening is a really great combination and tobacco and coffee notes with some sweetness in the background.
The tobacco smell more like a pipe tobacco.
It doesn't smell like dried tobacco that used in cigars! it like tobacco leafs with slight wet feeling but also really dark and smoky.
The coffee note is a great choice beside the tobacco and with some sweetness you have a really nice and mature and masculine scent.
While there is no "tea" note in note breakdown I would say this fragrance does have it!
Why?
If you have/had or at least tested "Gucci Pour Homme II" or "L'Artisan Parfumeur Tea for Two" you're familiar with that green and leafy tea note with some smokiness in the base of those fragrances!
I got exact the same in this fragrance.
In the dry down you can smell a green tea note like those tea based fragrances that I've mentioned, but because of tobacco note it's more smoky and more masculine in this fragrance.
There is some sweetness and you can smell it but it's nothing against tobacco, tea and coffee notes and it's completely in the background.
The base is almost exact the same of dry down but unfortunately it's really weak and you should stick your nose to your skin to smell it.
This fragrance remind me of something that someone like legendary "Sherlock Holmes" would wear! :)
Projection is close to the skin and longevity is around 4-5 hours on my skin! too pity! :(
And one last thing, it's more masculine than unisex!
