    The opening blast is amazing: a mix of dark rose, orange, jasmine and pepper form a unique, comforting but balanced experience. Then an incense-like aroma deepens it, without being churchy or heavy, with some cardamom and cinnamon present in the background. After the first couple of hours is recedes to be closer to my skin, and a woodsy-vanilla base emerges that over time adopts a powdery characteristic on me. The last few hours this an at times Guerlinesque elegant yet rich powdery note, together with the vanilla, is what remains to the end; never musty or old fashioned, like powder in a silicone wrap. The superb natural purity and quality of the ingredients and the superb blending are evident. Good silage and projection for the first couple of hours, with an excellent longevity of over eight hours in total. One of the most versatile O'Drius I know.

    On me the personalised scent overall is a bit less complex, with less vanilla and lasts less long.

    Peety by O`Driu is a Floral woody/musky concoction with an animalic soul and an herbal/aromatic stout undertone throughout. I'm lately enjoying sometimes on the skin this ultimate gem and have to say that the new experiment leans much on the more modern Leva side than on the one of my "ancient" absolute favorite Vis et Honor (or the one of the second love of mine Laltrove 1001). Bearish for sure but less mouldy and "ancient" than the O'Driu' heavyweights (some at least) in my opinion. On a first approach i detect (tenacious till the end) hints of orangy/ cinnamon (may be ylang- ylang yet), faint patterns of aromatic herbs/lemongrass (yes slightly a la Laurhum may be due to hints of thyme, tobacco, spices and laurel followed by soothing elements), an interaction of saffron, may be cumin over a woody/vanillic (minimal hints of coffee yet??) smooth base mastered by a well modulated smokey and animalic (forgive me, also "peessy") presence re-calling more properly a fur/castoreum/ambergris/tobacco combo than effectively the civet itself. The orangy vibe is notable and the more the juice discloses its wings the more i catch the peppery presence around. The floral patterns are not easy to identify but frankly i detect more spicy/jasmine, neroli and exotic floral elements than the rose itself. The note of tonka is central in the final process that provides slowly to round down the aroma as well as some vanilla which keeps inside the tobacco vibe as surrounded by musky, herbal and spicy nuances. This "avantgarde" juice is brown/dark and warm but never syrupy for sure.

    I have to say that the dark brown dry down tends to become (in a more masculine "sense" to me) decidedly smooth, delightful, slightly ambery/woody, highly sophisticated by spices, aromatic greens and fruity/floral, barely leathery notes. The leather (a subtle suede feel) emerges at distance and i feel it for sure on me, to be precise not properly in its common consistency rather more exactly in its olfactory "cuoio" aroma itself. In this phase the fragrance smells like a more civilized and modern olfactory potion but is still plain as aftertaste that sort of "mould" of shadowy edible spices, prickly dust, musk, patchouli, herbs and smoke. I agree about the inexorable (calm and slow) walk of the olfactory evolution and about the great lasting power of the aroma which when seems to be gone actually lingers around as a ghost for hours and hours. A more purified sort of l'Air du desert Marocain jumps vaguely to mind sometimes. Another example of the huge Pregoni's futuristic creativity whereof emerge extreme quality of the ingredients (natural in great part- actually the implementation of synthetic patterns is in here introduced) and avantgarde abitity to reproduce in a modern key an arcane "humus" and some bucolic enviromental atmospheres.

    *This review is primarily of Peety sans "personalization" with additional comparison comments at the end.

    Peety (unaltered) opens with a very animalic slightly herbal musky accord. Joining the animalics is dried slightly sweet jasmine-infused prune with hints of dulled rose rising from the composition's heart. As the fragrance transitions to its middle the composition remains relatively linear as the musky open slightly softens but remains well-intact, with the dulled rose expanding its role to co-star coupling with supporting subtle hints of pipe tobacco and the remaining jasmine. During the late dry-down the animalics and florals vacate the composition, revealing a dry powdery amber and tonka bean tandem in the base supported by faint traces of relatively dry sandalwood. Projection is excellent and longevity outstanding at over 14 hours on skin.

    Unaltered, Peety is one of the most wearable of the O'driu compositions I have tried to date. Make no mistake, Pregoni did not compromise in its creation or vision, but rather put together the components in a way that comes off a bit more refined than some of his earlier work. The open is quite the animalic one with a blast of mild herb-laced musk. The herbs used here are considerably less aggressive than those in most of his other compositions, letting the animalics do the "talking" per se. The dulled rose that makes its way into the open but really shines in the heart is very similar to the one used in my favorite Pregoni O'driu composition, Lalfeorosa, and the jasmine provides it excellent support. Finally, as the composition starts to fade the relatively dry tonka bean, sandalwood and amber in the base provide much needed relief from the stellar but potent earlier animalics and florals while completely shaking things up. One final observation is Pregoni's use of a small amount of synthetics in the base for the first time allows the performance characteristics of the composition to really shine while remaining completely transparent to the naturals. The bottom line is Pregoni continues to impress and hone his craft while expanding the accessibility of O'driu with the 150 Euro per 49ml Peety, earning a superb 4 to 4.5 star out of 5 rating and a strong recommendation (altered or unaltered).

    Just a few additional comments about my first experience with the fragrance that is now called "Peety" and my thoughts on the personalization aspect and its results.

    The first time I tried Peety was in a special late prototype form that the kind folks at O'driu sent me last year (2012) for an early test drive. The fragrance at the time had a working title of "Secraction" before Pregoni settled on the release name of Peety. The sample kit I originally received contained a small funnel, an empty 5 ml atomizer, the unaltered perfume in a dropper bottle and a very visual set of instructions of what to do with it all. To get to the point, the user is supposed to "personalize" the composition by adding a small amount of their own urine (yes, you read that correctly -- 1 ml per 49ml bottle to be precise).

    I confess when I first considered the thought of doing what the instructions asked, I imagined it was in jest and got a good chuckle. When I soon came to realization that Pregoni was completely in earnest, after a few days contemplation and vacillation I got past my aversion to the task and gave it a go. Adding a small quantity of urine to the composition tamps down the animalic open (though the musky aspect remains), adding an almost olive-like aspect early with the fragrance quickly transitioning to a soft rose and jasmine focus with the softened musk adding support. Projection and longevity are both hindered slightly but still one can expect good performance if enhancing the composition as the perfumer intended.

    I can honestly say the fragrance does indeed smell amazing with a small quantity of pee added, but having worn it several times both ways I personally have a slight preference for it sans pee. My recommendation to anyone sampling or buying a bottle of Peety is to give it a go both ways and decide for yourself. Either way Peety is a winner and well worth adding to one's collection.

    I'm leaning towards considering Peety, by far, the best fragrance by Pregoni. This is glorious!!!

    The usual lemongrass-dark herbal-vanillish combo of O'Driù is joined by a "bearish" smell. Smells like a bear ... the opening is not as brutal as other previous Pregoni's fragrances. There's some Laurhum in it, some Lalfeogrigio and, yes, even some Leva but somwhat, smells different from any other O'Driù I experienced so far. It's like O'Driù remixed. The main hallmarks are there but they're assembled to result completely different from the original...

    The remarkable animalic presence is not disturbing at all. It's a combination between amber gris and castoreum to my nose even if I initially thought it was civet (hence the opening's bearish smell). It provides great warmness and depth and it's joined by rose, woods galore and a moderately sweet vanilla/tonka/cinnamon combo. There's an overall dryness provided by pepper and woods but the composition never walks the line of harshness. In fact, it's smooth and extremely refined while mantaining an overall assertive character.

    There's nothing challenging about this fragrance if not the first couple of minutes of animalic-spicy blast. Composition-wise, I find it excellent and, honestly, I've never smelled something like it. There's a funny aspect going on during the evolution: The fragrance opens with a blast to soon settle down to a moderately powerful middle phase. When you're ready to think it's almost gone, it surprises you by starting to tremendously radiate. This final phase (which is the best part of the whole fragrace) goes on and on and on for several hours. The magic of synthetics.

    ---------------------

    The *personalized* version, while showing some remarkable differences, at the same time it doesn't feel *radically* different. The fragrance still preserves a thick leathery-musky-balmy structure but the vanillla, after the initial blast, gets tamed down brutally leaving space to a nice appleish-cinnamon combo that while sounding gourmandish, it totally skips the edible aspect of the accord introducing a metallic, sort of nose-tingling vibe the drives the fragrance towards more modern territories. The interesting aspect is that, despite the slightly metallic accord, Peety still feels incredibly warm, subtly animalic and sort of visceral. Again, there's NOTHING challenging about this composition, in fact, is quite easy to like. What, IMO, really changes from the "standard" version is that the base is less woody, less peppery and more about a spicy floral musk combo. The woods get almost killed in the "augmented" version.

    A funny thing I'd like to point out after several wearings is that Peety works subliminally. You think it's gone but then you get whiffs of its peculiar projection and this goes on and on and on...Projection! This is the point of stregth of this stuff. Don't get me wrong, Peety is not a projection monster (at least not after the first two hours or so) but I find it smelling a lot differently when smelled up close. This is a very well done fragrance but if smelled in projection, this stuff is killer. So unique. That's why I personally believe a paper strip test doesn't give justice to the composition.

    In the end, I've to say that with or without the P, this is a top quality fragrance. Both the two versions are well worth experiencing if you're into original fragrances. Again, unique without being odd.
