I just did a search for this fragrance in the forums and resurrected an old thread simply because i came into contact with this scent on a recent trip to Belgrade. What I didnt realise until after posting, is that it was in the female fragrance forum.
I'd like to speak of the mens one here, so Ive duplicated it (sorry mods!)
Exté is a very underestimated Italian design house. I happened to purchase a pair of exté reading glass frames five or six years ago (at the time with no idea they were a major fashion player), and I have to say the quality of the frames have lasted until this day (despite sitting on them more times than I can count over the years!).
Anyway, back to the topic at hand...I was wowed by this scent actually. The trouble is I had tried MANY that day, and it paled when measured against my "ABSOLUTE MUST HAVE" purchases.
Top Notes: Bergamot, Thyme, Oregano
Middle: Lavendar, Iris, Cinnamon, Geranium *squeal!*
Base: Patchouli, Cedarwood, Hint of Tonka Bean, Vanilla.
I insist I retry this as soon as I come by it again.
Has anyone else any impressions of this fragrance??
Ever walked away from a scent purchase whilst on holiday because you favored another purchase over that one??? And then regretted it later? Twice??!
I re-introduced myself to this scent again in Belgrade last week, but didn't buy it as I was anticipating a big spend as we continued with our trip. Now, as I prepare some of my woolens for wash, I can smell exté all over the cuff of one jumper.
I am regretting it (again).... I mean, HOW DUMB CAN I BE??!
Anyone suffer a similar scenario?
