Here I am, your amazing "interesting man in conflict"!
Today is a great day, because yesterday I bought my first Acqua di Parma!
I must say that I consider this brand a kind of Italian institution, without this "Water" in Italy I would not have found a lot of other subsequent Waters (and cities too) born like mushrooms!
In addition, their marketing plan is very interesting: a ready-to-wear luxury perfume, that transversely they sells just in niche perfumery and in the more commercial ones.
This perfume has nothing to do with Paco Rabanne Pour Homme as someone claims! Or at least it does as a horse with a mule!
Our nose is not as reliable as our eyes are! But there is one example that I can do to exemplify how our sense of smell works!
When you're in a dark bar drinking a beer, your eyes are able to pick the colors adapting themselves to the dark! If at some point you go out, outside the bar, while the sun shines at the top, in a split second, your eyes would adapt themselves to light. The same thing would not happen if instead of your eyes to work was a camera!
The ability of our eyes to see in different light conditions is related to our memory, the brain's ability to process an image that presumably we know, allowing our eyes to see.
Our sense of smell works in the same way! With the same handicap, always! It "sees" the first color and then another one and yet another! But if it does not have an archive of olfactory memories it can not exceed the first or the second color! To store memory, our nose not only has to work continuously, but must be closely linked to our brain, that we must strive to create our database that is not spontaneous! There are few smells that we can store spontaneously: the smells of danger (as fire), those of food, those of the stool and those about sex!
Some shades of rosemary and moss can remember many other scents. Especially if our nose can not overcome these barriers to investigate the smell!
With great consistency this perfume holds the promise of the pack, with an elegance that is now a stereotype of the brand.
Interesting game in opening with a pungent Petit Grain (perhaps reinforced) and beautiful unisex feeling of patchouli! Who could ask for more!Simplicity is an achievement!
