I agree, go with the Italian names for the Italian Series.
And I would be very happy to sample these, if they're made available - thank you!
i am happy to participate if you wish to include me, i will give my honest oppinion ,
i was thinking a lot after trying all natural perfumes, and concluded in the end that it is very hard to make a perfume at all, its very easy to say what you like and dont like about it, but very hard to make what is breath taking......
what i would like that you somehow make them longlasting whatever they will be they should have at least 3 hours of music and some projection , like Mecca Balsam that is very longlasting...Arabian series was all a bit on the masculine side i would like you to make one very femminine one and longlasting )..... i like Tasneem, its simple beauty, but lacks longevity and projection, i understand....just giving some wishes i have
for Rome i suggest some bergamot , mandarines and some rose in the opening something fresh....also if you would include some exceptional frankincense that would be awesome
i vote for Italian names...i would call them bella Italia
Venezia-romantic unisex of mediterranean spirit with special details, Firenze-must be femminine , Milano- can be more masculine notes, Roma-should be complex one , Napoli-can be with tuberose
oh i must add, i think Italy has unfairly been put into the "problematic" country group, becasue of its big public debt, but fundametals of that economy are much stronger then those regarded as safe heaven i believe in Italy ,it has competitive economy, i just hope people do choose someone more "serious" then Berlusconi , then i have no fears for Italy!! viva Italia, viva EU )
What a great idea. I also agree with others on keeping the names Italian.
I am in love with everything Italian.
Of the cities mentioned in the project, I have visited all except for Venice. Shame on me.
Please, let me know how I can help.
I, too, vote for the names in Italian.
Ivanita, these are interesting considerations. About the longevity you could read the iconolastic speach od Guy Robert at the Brittish society of perfumers about longevity of perfumes. The transcript has diappeared from the archives of the BSP site but I have a back up that I shall upload in the next few days for basenoters.
Perhaps these cities have a different character at different seasons of the year ? I like the idea that different perfumes can give the feeling of different seasons.
The names should be in Italian and the project's name should be "Spirit of Italy". Thus, a sentence might be, "We were delighted with the new fragrance Venezia, part of Profumo's "Spirit of Italy" collection released in 2013."
I would love to participate in as much as possible. I think the names should be in Italian, not English.
