    Gomma by Etro

    That's an odd fragrance for sure and even if don't particularly love it i appreciate its experimentalism, the Etro landmark itself and its cold leathery-rubbery vibe. I catch an initial bright, old school and grassy leather-artemisia-lavender accord with a touch of bergamot, a faint middle floral phase (violet-jasmine) and a final talky-ambery dry down with a touch of rubber. The initial leathery feel fades a bit with the sliding of time together with the rubbery and slightly spicy powder's blooming up. The gummy ambery opacity of this phase reminds me slightly the Bvlgari Black's dry down. The fragrance doesn't project a complex evolution and exudes that typical Etro's vintage dry dust a bit opaque, spicy, resinous and exotic that you smell (in different ways) in the body of scents as Heliotrope, Shaal Nur and Patchouly. An interesting and original cool rubbery scent.
