• Inspired by Romance in Venice

    This fragrance is inspired by romance in Venice. The key notes would be Iris; Orchid (subtler than the Iris); slightly powdery Vanilla; Champagne; and a Venice Sea note. Italian Opera comes to mind when I think of this fragrance. The fragrance would be unisex. If I were to create an ad for this fragrance, I'd show a man and woman floating down Venice on a gondola, laughing and drinking champagne.

    Here are my proposed notes for the fragrance, which the perfumers can subtract from or add to at their own leisure:

    subtle Jasmine
    A hint of Verbena
    Gondola Wood
    subtle Labdanum
    slightly powdery Vanilla
    Venice Sea note

      Very evocative! From the name "Romance in Venice" and your description, this strikes me as a predominantly female scent, not unisex. There just aren't enough good "gondola wood" fragrances on the market.

      Thanks! I think if done right, it could be unisex, but you're right, it does sound predominantly feminine. Gondolas are made out of a lot of different woods, I didn't want to list them all.

      Thank you very much! I was inspired by the history of Venice, and Italy in general, and the long history of romantic escapades therein.

      This reminded me of my visit to Venice with my wife. Very romantic place, for sure. The idea of gondola wood is intriguing - a mixture of woods and other scents which might evoke a well-worn boat on the canals - I can picture it in my mind's eye and smell-o-vision right now. It really is a fascinating idea.
