Reviews of Taormine

Mediterranean silky class.

Calm, peaceful and finally decadent as an afternoon around the luxuriant gardens of a southern nobiliary building. A pity this fragrance is not really durable on my skin as i detect an excellent alchemy of well blended citric/fruity/aromatic elements and delicate (but stout) white floral notes (narcissus, jasmine??) over a magic polished base of leather, soothing balsams and bitter (at the beginning but later powdery/orangy) almond/petitgrain chord. This latter accord (as flanked by a well appointed hesperidic and herbal aromatic presence -which plays as the masculine side of this unisex combination) produces a weird (bitter/almost plastic for a while) vibe over the leathery silkiness, creating by soon a sort of bitter/aromatic counterpart for the brighter smooth (but rich) floral patterns (which anyway are notable, sophisticated, with a vague inner retro/stuffy spark and feminine over the smooth base of suede). The final aromatic perfume turns out like a sort of smooth and chic floral suede with an almondy/creamy lemony sort of inner fluidity (alias white smoothness). Taormine is a nice ephemeral exercise of mediterranean elegance for all those elected not yet overwhelmed by the pale synthetic powdery boredom diffused around.

Pros: Smooth and balanced.
Cons: Faint lasting power."

Very nice cologne type scent. Sweetish in just the right way, i.e.not too much, wonderfully sweet/bitter almond is the main player, with a strange hollow effect like the scent is whooshing up your nasal cavities through a metal tube (something I also get from Avignon) which I really like. Also bit salty, breezy. Doesn't last long, sillage ok. The slot in my wardrobe for this type of thing is already filled by Escale Portafino but I'd go for this next time if it wasn't quite so pricy because the almond here is so delicious and the scent is interesting, it triggers happy memories that I can't quite pin down.
