Thread: Kiton Napoli

  1. #1

    Default Kiton Napoli

    I'm not quite sure what to make of this oriental, it doesn't really remind me of any other oriental I've tried (though Sarjeet thinks there is some similarity to Minatour). It's got a rose note in the middle of it, which is probably what makes it different from most (it's a bit harsher than the rose note in Ungaro 111).

    In the actual wearing, I liked it more than in my wrist test, with it developing the same kind of refined feel about as the original Kiton.

    I just got this last night in a swap...VERY NICE.
    I agree that it doesn't smell like anything else (that I have)
    I haven't given it a full wear but will tomorrow...had to go with Bleecker St. today.

    Well, I guess that makes it three out of three so far who think it's an unusual scent.

    I can't understand where this scent has been hiding. People here have tried the most obscure of scents around the place, but Napoli seems to have fallen completely off the radar.

    Is Minatour similar to Minotaure?
    "...The history of perfumery before this subdivision of niche was manufactured, both literally and imaginatively, is a long one, with thousands upon thousands of fragrances. The true fragrance lover takes each fragrance one at a time, and examines it preferably outside of the imaginatively manufactured categories and, in doing so, builds up a steady, informed basis for seasoned comparative judgments based on the sampling and information gathered from such sampling. This is why any one on the board who ever has anything particular interesting to say about fragrances as fragrances rather than as categorical constructs always has an abiding interest and passion for all kinds of fragrances and not just a narrow niche of fragrances. Conversely, the "niche whores," the more and more narrow their interests become, the more and more they mimic the ad copy of the very companies they worship. I know whose posts I like to read..."

    “Perfume is decidedly not about two things: it isn’t about memory and it isn’t about sex. Perfume is about beauty and intellect,” .......... “A perfume is a message in a bottle—not a smell—and the message is written by the perfumer and read by the person who smells it.”

    I think it is much closer to Dali Laguna than Minotaure.

    It's never too late to mend.

    I've just sprayed these two on the back of my hands.
    I don't think they're much alike at all, other than they that both a bit of bite to them.

    It only cost me just over A$80 for a 75ml bottle at Strawberrynet, which is slightly dearer than normal, but isn't anywhere as dear as the niche ones they sell there.
