    lf l could give separate ratings for the top & base notes of this fragrance, the former would get a big thumbs up, the latter a firm thumbs down. lt begins how l expect orange blossom to smell; fresh, sharp & yet sweet, evocative of blue skies & sunshine. lt warms on the skin & becomes more floral & slightly woody, & l'm thinking; "could this be love?" But then, a wierd metallic note kicks in, just as Mimi describes, & completely ruins it for me. ls that the myrrh? Or is it an overdose of synthetic neroli? Either way, l can't ignore it, & l'm thankful that it's all over after 3 hours.

    The opening is wonderful with a whack of natural neroli oil very similar to the much lauded Czech & Speake. However, unfortunately, the neroli gives way to a soapy heart and somewhat animalic base. The base is a good contrast, but the soap is too strong. If only Profumum Roma had concentrated on natural oils instead of using artificial fixatives to boost it to an eau de parfum.

    Well there you go ...you just never know when you will absolutely despise a fragrance even if it sounds enticingly good . Profumum Neroli is a strange creature for me- it starts out with a bright citrus note- promising ,very italian, then in comes a realistic rich orange blossom . However, it 's all the way down hill from there and frankly, I feel sick . This takes on a medicinal tone as the orange blossom gets less pronounced. Maybe it is the woods and myrrh .It's truly a horrible smell - kind of 'irony' in scent and 'off' . I cannot stand the drydown of this perfume.
    Strange, stale irony scent .

    This is like the Monty Python Viking Cafe: neroli, neroli, neroli, baked beans, neroli and neroli. Oh sorry, baked beans are off, you can have extra neroli instead.

    I started out loving this fragrance because it smells exactly like natural neroli and orange blossom. Neroli is one of my favorite notes, but it can become overwhelming. Ditto orange blossom--even more so. That little flower, in natural absolute, is positively aggressive. Only a small amount will overtake all other florals. It smells almost animalic. So, while I did greatly enjoy this perfume in the outset because it smelled so realistic (and I do belived that a high percentage of naturals are used) it changed radically by the time it dried down and became a bit soapy on me. I have no explanation for that occurrence. It's a complex little fragrance for so few notes. Perhaps it will work better on others.

    I am usually repelled by the artificial neroli and it's association with suntan products. Often there is a plastic after-note that accompanies neroli. Not so in this masterpiece. The first time I tried this it was love. Fresh citrus flowers and pure sunshine in a bottle. It sounds corny, but I can't think of anything else when I'm wearing this. It is a bit floral and sweet, but not sugary in the least. Just delicious. Siliage is excellent.
