Reviews of Vento Canale

Vento Canale is named for a wind that blows through the Strait of Messina. Well, quite frankly, the meaningless naming of the perfumes in this line after Signore Campagna's alleged memory sites is totally misleading and doesn't do the fragrances justice at all. Since he's a men's tailor, why did they not associate them with situations, places or other aspects of a well-groomed gentlemenan's life, since that is what they seem to embody. Vento Canale, for one, should be called "The Drawing Room" or "The Library." Pure and simply it is a sweet boozy pipe tobacco and automatically conjures up images of English club chairs, leatherbound volumes and the whole Georgian mansion bit. Needless to say it shares qualities with Caron's Aimez-Moi, which is a tad sweeter in a feminine way (its "cookiedough in the kitchen" is absent here). It also reminds me of Bogart pour homme, on the spot I would say that this is a more refined version, Bogart having been quite a sledgehammer (also, it features cherry, as I recall). I'm wearing this with green cordury trousers, a Harris tweed jacket and a green striped raw silk shirt and I feel like a country squire in a leisurely mood, with pipe and hand. Perfect for non-smokers who would like to project that image. Very good at what it does.

It was pointed out to me that Tobaco Latino smells very similar to this one (though I've only tried Tobaco Latino), and if so, definitely "bottle-worthy" for those who like tobacco gourmands (though I have no idea what Vento Canale sells for). Here is the official blurb to Tobaco Latino:

"TOBACCO LATINO, the sweet and familiar aroma of the famous Cuban cigars. The base note, in which the rustic freshness of laurel, and clary sage is complemented by a touch of rum, and leads to a delicately flowery heart of lily of the valley, and freesia, complemented by the fruity tones of coconut, and raspberry. The richly woody background notes of vetiver, sandalwood, and cedarwood highlight the tobacco note, sweetened with a touch of honey."

Now take a look at that pyramid, doesn't it look absolutely brilliant!?!?

And no, as suspected, it doesn't deliver the high expectations, although I can't say it's a bad scent. But yes, especially the diverse complexity of that pyramid is very misleading since this is after all a fairly simple and linear mixture of amber, honeyed tobacco and raspberry liqueur.
No carrot seeds (a shame!), no lily (thank god!), curry herb (damn it!), pine balm (hmph!) or some other notes available to my nose.

But it's still a very nicely made sweet oriental fragrance. It smells very, very warm, even hot I'd say. It isn't smoky at all, but it's really glowing like a heater. In colours, Vento canale is a fire-red mixed with passion orange and golden brown.

Very unisex, very long lasting, very much discontinued.
