“La Danza delle Libellule/A Dragonflies Dance” takes its inspiration from a famous Operetta with the same name composed by Franz Léhar in early 1900. The Operetta is set in a lush garden and the plot is a sort of fairy-tale romance. The perfume is totally consistent with its inspiration: it features a delicate floral aura introducing the most colourful, mouthwatering fruit bouquet (bergamot, orange, apple and red berries); cocoa and vanilla complement the acidulated gourmand freshness with warm creaminess and a child-like playfulness. But don't expect an overly sweet or cloying scent: sugar overdose is avoided by heavily relying on cinnamon, sober cedarwood and a good musky base tightening the whole together. The result is a sultry fragrance with an optimistic “push”; I sprayed it and began smiling: all of a sudden holidays didn't seem so far.
LDDL is in edp, thus quite diffusive and long lasting.
