Personally I find Platinum

) a standout but I guess to properly appreciate it you need to be into sharp citruses/cedarwood compositions. The grapefruit/wood accord is quite prominent but while many compositions in the same vein tend to result crude and synthetic, Platinum
is extremely refined and "warm". I also get a moderate immortelle note that, together with incense, provides great deepness.
I'm also quite a big fan of Tirrenico
which, due to its persistent fennel note, I can only wear it every once in a while though.
Recently I've heard they made a limited edition of Versilia Aurum
with gold chips inside the bottle....pretty pointless IMO
Sorry Teardrop, I didn't mean to hijack your thread...
