    Default Blasts from the Past: Mediterraneum

    One of my best swapping pals sent me this little gem and I decided to try it out again today (as it's been on my swaplist because I really paid it no attention after its first trial a year ago).

    I have to say, it's a wonderful scent, a little like the framework of Opium pour Homme without the vanilla, and I detect an emphasis on the patchouli in the base, and it's surprisingly easy to wear. In the directory, someone reviewed it as "rat posion" but I must vehemently disagree. I think I have to remove it from my swaplist.

    It begins with something not too dissimilar to Fahrenheit, but much less orange blossom and a little darker. It quickly reveals its spicy base with what I detect are leather and patchouli notes, with a faintly sweet note akin to amber. It never appraoches the depths of say Azarro or Fendi Uomo, always remaining lighter and fresher. By no means is it a groundbreaking masterpiece, but it can be found at incredibly low prices nowadays, and I believe for $20 or so it's definitely worth having in your collection in your fans of fragrance like Fahrenheit, Opium or Alviero Martini.

    Isn't this the one that was made for the bizarre and surreal Fabio?

    sadly, yes, an image which prevented me from giving this the time of day for the last decade, but it's actually rather good.
