Thread: Italian Style

  1. #1

    Default Italian Style

    Hello everyone!
    (My apologies if there is similar thread)

    I imagined this thread as a place where you can post your perfume associations that evoke Italian style of living and their culture, their fashion, urbanism, seductiveness, italian charm. They are known for their modern way of live on the north of the Italy and a more traditional one on the south...I don't need to mention that they are known as a good seducers
    You can look at the ingredients that come from the Italy also (bergamot, figs, etc.).
    So, the point is to write down a perfume that is "typically italian", that reminds you on italian life style or italian man/woman...

    I always imagine someone riding a Vespa and wears:

    Man: Moschino Uomo? & Acqua di Parma Colonia Intensa

    Woman: D&G Light Blue

    Ha Uomo Moschino, the first time I sprayed it on me I imagined myself as a gigolo italiano.
    Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.

    Hi APOM -

    I recently sampled Tom Ford Italian Cypress and Tuscan Leather. Both do an excellent job of reminding you of the Italian lifestyle.

    Fendi Donna - but they don't make it anymore.

    Kouros by YSL, the original. Obviously French but takes me back to Umbria every time I sniff it. It was ingrained in the sun-baked cobblestones of Urbino, along with romance and 1,000 years of love and hate.

    D&G Pour Homme - Goes well with fashionable Italian clothing, cars, and also matches a macho attitude.

    As previously mentioned, anything by Acqua di Parma as well as Armani PH, and, in addition to that, almost anything by Acqua di Genova and by Carthusia, also Gucci Nobile, Roberto Capucci PH and almost anything by Roccobarocco and, of course, by Versace- but especially L'Homme has a distinctly Italian vibe

    Diesel - Fuel for Life quite Italian i think.
    But notes like bergamot, figs, orange blossom etc etc probably remind me different places in Italy but not Italian.

    I love Italians and their style; cars, food, fashion design. I guess Acqua di Parma, Etro, L'Occitane, Gucci, Armani and Prada fragrances give the best examples of Italian sophistication and refinement.

    I love early 60s Italian Cinema. Marcello Mastroianni is the quintessential Italian Cool Cat. I think he'd wear ADP Colonia

    Anything from Soprani (It's a big deal there.)

    My 'Unsung Treasures' thread is basically a tribute to Italian classics, which are my favorite.
