Convivio opens with a nose tingling blast of bitter grapefruit before slowly transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart the grapefruit smooths out, but remains as it joins coniferous green, woody cypress with a mild synthetic blonde woody undertone. As the composition moves through the heart phase the cypress becomes the focal note with the grapefruit receding to just noticeable support, as the synthetic blonde woody undertone gains a bit more prominence. During the late dry-down the composition eschews most of its coniferous aspect, leaving the remnants in support of the smoothed out synthetic blonde woody accord with subtle underlying traces of rugged leather through the finish. Projection is average, but longevity excellent at around 15 hours on skin.

Convivio starts out with a really nice fresh blast of grapefruit, but that kind of thing has been done many times over. The composition truly starts to distinguish itself from other fresh perfume when the coniferous green, woody cypress takes over in its mid-section. This is also the point where the synthetic blonde woody accord makes itself known. The blonde woods are derived near certainly from cashmeran, an ingredient that usually is a deal breaker as it tends to overpower most compositions. Luckily, in Convivio's case, perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin has done an outstanding job of keeping the cashmeran-derived blonde woods to a very subtle, well-controlled level that supports the cypress surprisingly well. The late dry-down, however, is probably the best part of the composition's development as the cashmeran joins ambroxan to smooth out but also enhance the blonde woods with the remnants of the cypress adding just the right natural smelling woody counter with even a touch of leather detectable late. The composition is far from perfect, and the cypress can be just a bit much as it reaches its peak mid-heart but all-in-all Convivio is a refreshingly light blend of naturals and synthetics in harmony with each other, creating an appealing result. The bottom line is the $190 per 75ml bottle Convivio has its flaws, but is particularly notable in the way it utilizes cashmeran so skillfully that it adds to its appeal, earning it a "very good" 3.5 star out of 5 rating. Certainly recommended smell-wise, but Convivio's full retail price may be a bit of a stretch.
