    Question L'Eau d'Italie Le Sirenuse line

    Has anyone here sampled fragrances created by the owners of Le Sirenuse in Positano Italy? I was "invited" to a writer's conference at this hotel in Positano, and while researching it found that the owners founded the perfume line which includes Sienne l'Hiver, among others. Just curious, I thought it an interesting coincidence, even though I won't make it to the conference - too pricey
    Nonetheless, my curiosity has been aroused.

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    doesn't seem like any of the men here are familiar with this line. will move this over to the ladies and see if anyone has tried this.

    I have tried Bois d'Ombrie, Sienne l'Hiver and Paestum Rose and find them intriguing. They are marketed as unisex.

    Sienne l'Hiver is my favourite - spicy, earthy; with notes of rosted chestunuts, olives, autumn leaves and truffles, straw, iris root, white musk.
    Paestum Rose is a rose fragrance with rose, incense and resins. More focused on the incense; the rose stays in the background.
    Bois d'Ombrie is a very elegant , deep woody fragrance with iris root, leather, vetiver and a boozy note (cognac).

    They all are well constructed and very long-lasting.

    I got Bois d'Ombrie as a sample with the delivery of a bottle which I think came from luckyscent. I pronounced it bottleworthy and I should be buying one quite soon.

    I have Bois d’Ombrie and it's full bottle worthy. Leather, winey, vetiver, iris that has a transparency but not weak. I love it. It brings to mind fine wood antiques and tawney hues.

    I have sampled all of this line and really like them alot.
    Bois d'Ombrie is my favorite. It is very light in feeling. Transparent maybe. I wish there was a little more to it, but it is still dreamy and beautiful as it is.
