metallic, fruit chypre that develops great with body heat and this makes it a good summer scent, alas it has poor duration....

Ragù by Gabriella Chieffo

Ludicrous name aside, a very syntethic pastiche that, basically, goes nowhere!

Tango by Masque

A true blast of an opening of cinnamon and cardamon, after a while it sits on you skin as an amber animalic leather shypre, kind of low on sillage and vey good duration, was about to get a full bottle, but it isnot impressive to me!

very low on sillage and duration, smells more like edt and nowhere near edp, has a very radiant opening which quickly fades into an obscure oud woods drydown...disappointing to say the least
