PALERMO, NEW FRAGRANCE IN THE ITALIAN SERIES

    PALERMO, NEW FRAGRANCE IN THE ITALIAN SERIES

    The fragances of the Italian series will be six instead of five. I have included my already existing Sicilian perfume Don Corleone, rinaming it from "Don Corleone"to "Palermo Don Corleone".
    Some reviews can be found at:

    Basenotes
    Absolute Trygve
    The Scentuary

    DESCRIPTION:
    "Non è per i picciotti"

    "Palermo Don Corleone" was composed during a Sicilian summer holiday. The predilection that Sicilians have for the Vanilla note reveals a psychology very different from what we imagine about them.

    I smelled so many Vanilla accords in the wake of Sicilians men and women that I felt challenged to compose a Vanilla theme perfume, which I never attempted before.

    Their love for this aroma is of course in line with their passion for pastries, sweets and chocolates, but it also denotes a very strong sentimental attachment to the mother, the need to be comforted and of tenderness.

    I imagined a fragrance that would represents the Sicilian people, a perfume in which everything is exaggerated, starting with an exageration of Vanilla. I wanted a fragrance that would be extralarge also in sensuality, but having in it the hidden dark dangerous side of Sicily. To obtain this result I played Vanilla in an accord with Tuberose and Tobacco.

    The result is a strong masculine perfume that paradoxically many women will like and easily wear, deeply sensual but at the same time serious. All the Sicilians to whom I showed it just love it, from this I know to have succeeded in celebrating their untamed spirit with this fragrance.

    This is a strange perfume, I don't know if I like it or not! You really need†to try it because it smells so unusual! In my review I described it as "schizophrenic" because the ingredients seem to clash, but at the same time they fit together.

    I don't know how much my impression is influenced by the name and the idea itself, but i picture this scent on my skin as the perfect aroma for an italian mafia boss. It exudes class, power, intensity, from the beginning until the end. I don't know if it is strange to me, i have already smelled and sample so many things through my journey that this is hard to classify, but i see it as very powerful. It's for me a scent of as much of vanilla as tobacco. They are the stars, where the tuberose is more of a second player on me, just providing a round, sensual touch to bind those two essences. It makes me think that vanilla is much more deep and dimensional that we †might think at first. I guess that this is because we are so used with the sugary, creamy vanillas that we forgot that it can also smell flowery, a little bit animalic, erotic, but also smoky, leathery too. This vanilla is edible, but more smoky, spicy, it merges completely into the tobacco nuances. It's different, for instance, from the vanilla used in Frutti Paradisi, that is close to skin and smell exactly like the vanilla pods after you have extracted the seeds. As i expected, i love this scent and i'm impressed that a natural scent can be this way, intense just the way i like. Amazing.

    Again a very beautiful, acurate and dangerously tempting review.
    You are a good writer Rickb and you entered the spirit of Sicily. "†the perfect aroma for an italian mafia boss", I love it!

    The difference you note between this one and commercial vanilla fragrances is due to my using real vanilla pods extract and not chemical vanillin.

    I like your vanillas Dominique, you achieve beauty with them without sounding linear. Glad you liked my review, i tried to be sincere and just translate what i pictured and smelled while wearing it. This is one that i'll add at least a mignon to my collection :)
