Io by Hilde Soliani starts out as a white floral coated in a generous dusting of crushed sweet-tarts. As the acidity of the candy calms down, a grape flavored tuberose takes center stage. The purple grape candy smells very little like a "natural" grape. Even though I’d classify this as a fruity floral, the whole composition retains a dryness not typical of the genera. The juxtaposition of simple floral notes with the sweet-tart candy results in youthful sophistication and an abstract twist. After a while, it becomes clear that some of the dryness is due to an old-fashioned powdery iris note that makes the fragrance quite lady-like, yet the pervasive pixi dust keeps it playful. As time passes, the warmth of the benzoin tames the candied tuberose and the composition becomes less interesting. Soon, only a trace of candy is left on the skin.
