Is it me or this is identical partially to Narciso for Him and partially (as others noted) to Bois d'argent? I smell olibanum, white musks, resins, discreet silky woods (gallons of cashmeran), aldehydes, and a thin, linear, clean iris accord, quite dry and simple (à la Divine Homme de Coeur, no waxy-buttery notes). Sophisticated, pleasant, delicate, dusty – almost chalky, pale and refined, quite artificial (not "openly" à la Helmut Lang, rather clumsily). Without praise or blame.
Farmacia SS Annunziata 450 is an enormously sophisticated and subtle musky floral with a talky/ambery diaphanous soul. Few words to really express the subtleness, the ethereal consistency, the light/airy musky refinement, the balance, the measure. All is perfectly appointed, all is attenuate and lost in the translucent memory. The aroma is dreamy and evocative about childish whiffs of clean laudries, sugary flavours, delicate floral bouquet, arcane floral foams, aromas of fresh musk, baby talcs, soaps. There is a lemony/floral/ambery (vaguely salty/organic) secret spark as chypre undertone swirling constantly under the nose probably provided by a bergamot/green notes/hight quality iris/amber/powdery woods accord. The latter is standout and provides a sort of powdery floral subtleness perfectly connected with ambergris and musk. The note of amber provides a subtle sort of eliotropic molecular dustiness which is joined with ethereal light incense and with soft white flowers. The musk provides a sort of secret neutral/soapy but intense and vaguely "corporeal" undertone. A perfect fragrance for the lovers of such delicate work of olfactory art.
