Reviews of Prima T

A classic, uncompromising, straightforward genuine floral/chypre scent, quite on the "organic, rural & botanical" side, with a stunning, narcotic initial narcissus note and a fresh balsamic breeze as if there was a slight geranium note too. A discreet, more powdery side (violet) adds a nice soapy and gentle note, which "refines" the haunting rawness of narcissus. Something darker and more animalic hiding below, subtle and shady. Realistic and powerful, extremely elegant in Acampora's Mediterranean way – no aldehydated/resinous French elegance, no Oriental opulence, more the graceful, crisp elegance of a flowers bouquet lying on a garden table, in a sleepy Autumn afternoon. Evocative and timeless, slightly melancholic and gloomy, without any specific "reference", more an eternally romantic, neoclassic personality, lively and vibrant as a Leighton painting. Mellow and cozy drydown. Understated elegance at its best – which is the kind I appreciate the most, and perhaps the most difficult to achieve.

Acampora Prima T is another giant, an absolutely gorgeous and royal musky/floral chypre in which a massive floral bouquet is rooted over a perfect (and obscure) musk/galbanum slightly soapy-animalic base. Yes, a coronal by gems dotted, this is what this complex aroma elicits. I detect orange blossoms at the beginning perfectly connected to dark moss and hesperides. The bouquet is rich, decadent and retro, conjuring parisian attics populated by old sinister madame, misogynist fellows and elusive ghosts. The violet is heady in my opinion, a sinister violet full of mystery and conjuring brown/dark ambiences impregnated by the hypnotic (obsessive) smell of indolic floral compositions and stale vegetal water. The rose is there, velvety and red, luxurious and decadent while the lily of the valley enhances the floral melancholic depth. The floral miasm is swirling, velvety, kaleidoscopic, spinning. There is a classic bergamot/patchouli accord in my humble opinion while hints of sandalwood provide stableness for the musky foundations. The aroma re-proposes in a modern key a classic massive chypre accord a la First or Diva but all is "polished", boise, velvety animalic in a silky/vegetal way. There is a final marvellous rosey/musky laundriness so perfect and refined. The Prima T's type of woman is spectral, forbidding, mysterious, nobody knows about the obscure past of her. Chapeau.
