    Slightly deceptive, Peety starts out on what appears to be a new path for O’Driu but then switches direction, heading instead toward more familiar aromatic territory.

    The initial application reminded me a little of L’Ombre Fauve’s patchouli muskiness placed over a series of balmy notes. Initially absent was the standard aromatic blast of herbs that dominate many of the scents from this line, replaced instead with a warm and inviting coumarin kind of feel—not quite vanilla, but sweeter than tonka or benzoin. And then as if from out of nowhere, hot spicy notes and herbal flourishes come striding in positioning Peety as back in familiar territory.

    While the herbs and spices start to take over, it retains some of its warmth, creating a bit of a juxtaposition. I picked up on some candied citrus upfront that reminded me a little of Bohemian Black’s herbal limoncello opening in which culinary spices and candied lemons converge. The spices are sharper and more “pink” here than in the Matriarch—more of a combination of clove, cinnamon, and pepper with a slightly sweaty cardamom lurking around as well. Subtle minty facets pop up, but I think this is perhaps residue from one of the floral notes. Once the scent has reoriented itself on this more traditional O’Driu aromatic path, it stays fairly linear and consistent throughout, wearing as quite cooling given the hot nature of some of the spices.

    I’ve smelled a lot of O’Driu perfumes, and this is really the first to embrace such amber-y characteristics, and it seems to work in the scents favor. While I’m personally a bit unsure about how successfully balmy notes function when placed against sharp, almost medicinal herbs, the scent stands out from the rest of the line. It’s still O’Driu—meaning that it’s kind of weird—but this one of the more accessible scents that I’ve smelled from the brand. Of course it’s no secret by now that you’re supposed to top this scent off, but I’ve opted to pass on this part of the process so that I can focus more intently on what’s already present. I think it’s a good scent overall—one of the better from the line, but a still a few notches away from something like Lalfeogrigio.

    And now even O'Driu makes a fragrance with rose. YAY!
    This fragrance is definitely an oriental fragrance with completely familiar vibe in the mid and base. it's only the opening that is a little different and in my opinion the best part of the scent. the rest is same old same old vanilla, rose, patchouli which you can find .... blah blah blah!
    The opening is a very nice combination of sweet and warm tonka bean with it's bitter vanilla like vibe, rose, patchouli and tobacco.
    The tonka bean/vanilla and rose mix is something very common nowadays and if you've already tested just a few of them, you know what I'm talking about. we have exactly the same thing here. sweet and kind of syrupy rose which is very sensual in many people eyes.
    But something here that makes things a little different and kind of interesting is tobacco and patchouli.
    The patchouli is very sharp and strong and give the scent a pungent aromatic and kind of herbal edge.
    The tobacco note is very well done here that give the scent beautiful dark and heavy aroma.
    I believe there is also some leather here because I can feel it's present and soft smoky vibe that gives the scent.
    In the mid while tobacco note starts to decay and patchouli become smoother, I can feel more sweetness and more rose.
    The mid is a warm and sweet vanilla and rose combo with smoother yet sharp patchouli and very weak tobacco in the background. it's nice but something that I've smelled many times before.
    In the base things got a little better. in the base tobacco is completely gone and I can feel the shadow of patchouli in the background. the sweet rose is something that you I smell easily plus very smooth animalic dirty aroma in the scent which was a nice surprise at the end.
    Projection is very good and longevity is around 8-10 hours on my skin.
    If you're into rose based fragrances, there is nothing exciting or different here. but at least it worth a shot to get a sample and see what "Angelo Orazio Pregoni" did with rose.

    The opening is, again, brilliant and unique: dark, velvety, in a nowhere between vanillin and frankincense, floating above a warm, thick sea of ambroxan and benzoin. Anise and liquorice on woods, with quite a number of spices, notably cloves, which Angelo seems quite fond of. Dense animalic heart, utterly sophisticated and captivating, shady and materic, with some sweet, sticky aromatic feel. Part of this you can feel it better in the sillage than close to skin. As other O'Driù scents, an abstract, compact composition which manages to smell at the same time totally pleasant, wearable and soothing, still interesting and complex. And incredibly smart. Which to me is quite a rare and precious feature, because many "avant-garde" scents smell either bad, or interesting but "un-wearable". This instead can be enjoyed as-is, or unwrapped and dissected like a magic candy. One of the really few scents around for which I'd use the term "new", and in fact, you'd better just stop reading this and just wear Peety (with or without "personalization"). Aerial and dimensional, futuristic and translucent, with the same oniric opalescence of Eva Kant, rarified and without a detectable structure, yet completely "clear" and... well, "there", hard to get and to describe with classic perfumery's terms and concepts, but perfectly "there". A really smart and fun interplay between naturals and aromachemicals, which also moves through different moods and ambients; once the opening evolves, it slowly becomes warmer and dustier, a floral heart emerges, and for a while you're close to a classic chypre, yet, as in a dream with your Charon driving you through a hall of mirrors, the chypre is destructured, appearing more linear, more abstract, more "fake", yet palpable and tasty. Rubbery tar echoes emerge too, drowned in a sticky lotion that makes them sound restrained, "mute" and pale. The fil rouge here, and also the link to other O'Driù scents, is a sharp medicinal vibe comprising vanillin and cloves, pungent and vivid like a blood-stained gauze, as if sniffing that was the key to access this surrealist, oniric, mutating gallery of realms and suggestion. The warm, dusty ambroxan base – not sure about the material, however that is how it smells to me – makes this scent a bit close to Tauer's style, I agree with Darvant below on that; although here is just more... bizarre. It's warm and soothing, but also somehow morbid. After a couple of hours an animalic note pops out again, dry and rubbery, which then drowns down again, and you're back again on that warm medicinal amber-spicy sea, with its synthetic sharpness and a dusty, geometric feel. The drydown is mostly based on this warm and dusty ambery-vanillin-medicinal accord, which is terribly sophisticated and really pleasant, and also incredibly persistent. It was with me basically the whole day. A totally consistent, dense scent, in which you hardly smell something you have already smelled elsewhere, which manages to be totally pleasant and the same time, totally and genuinely new to all extents. You just come back to smell it again and again, like something you don't want to see because you don't get it, yet you keep spying and peeping. Intriguing, versatile, refined, playful and irresistibile.

    (and now comes the joke I saved there for the whole time: "I tried to pee in my sample, but I wasn't able to hit it").

    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.
