    Default Romeo di Romeo Gigli

    I never hear this fragrance mentioned here at Basenotes (I only hear everyone talking about the Romeo Gigli for Men).

    I saw this at a discount perfumer over the weekend (didn't buy it, it was overpriced...) but sniffing it again after many years I realized it is such an amazing light green fragrance (in the vein of Calyx by Prescriptives or Happy by Clinique). Plus it's got this ultra chic bottle with a swirly glass thing goin' on, at the top of a saucer-esque bottle. Priced very affordably online also.

    Anyone out there in Basenotes have comments / experiences with Romeo di Romeo Gigli?

    I bought it unsniffed as I was going through a Fruity Chypre phase - it didn't quite hit the mark with me. I was into Yvresse and Mitsouko at the time. Not sure if I had built it up in my mind and it was not quite what I wanted.
    I have since passed it onto a relo.(sister)

    Yeah, its strange how its never really mentioned in BN at all...quite the sleeper scent in my opinion. There is one review of it in the directory from a man like me, so perhaps thats the impetus I needed to give myself permission to buy it for myself
