Brighter and cleaner than the original Signoricci, this 1976 version loses the relative thickness of galbanum that dominated the opening in the 1965 Signoricci. Although the opening is brighter and cleaner than the original version, the middle and base more or less return to the warmer tones of the original, but they seem have lost some of the heaviness that was in the originalís heart notes. One of the additions in the middle notes is the aldehydes, which, I think, help create the new and different kind of warmth quite different from the rosy Ė musty heft of Signoricci (1)ís heart. With this one, as with the one now called Signoricci, I very soon lose the citruses,and once the citruses are lost, Signoricci (2) becomes a primarily green fragrance, but a green that carries a comfortable warmth which remains through its drydown: It is indeed the warmth of Signoricci (2) that makes it so desirable. Itís an excellent fragrance and my favorite of the three Signoriccis.
