    Default SECRACTION: A Secret Perfume by Angelo Orazio Pregoni (O'Driù)

    During a recent chat with Mr.Pregoni, he introduced me to a new "mysterious" project which has been in the making for the last three years. A new fragrance combining most of the house's hallmarks with 3% of synthetic notes. This is quite revolutionary for a perfumer that made of 100% natural ingredients, his main signature.

    "A secret perfume", this is how I'll call it now, takes its inspiration from a bunch of the most successful releases by O'Driù (Linfedele, Laurhum, Lafro and Lalfeorosa) and pairs the main accords of the aforementioned fragrances to synthetic notes. For the first time, the fragrance will not be released in limited batches and will be available worldwide.

    "A Secret Perfume" will be launched in early/mid 2013.

    I wonder what the synthetics are, as there are SO many super useful synthetics.

    That's my main curiosity as well. He talks about notes that change depending on the wearer...maybe some musks?

    Great photo, where did that come from?

    The thought of the mysterious Signore Pregoni incorporating synthetics is very exciting. I imagine his take would be very unique and I for one look very much forward to trying it.

    musk are the most obvious choice. there are some natural alternatives to it though to some extent, like costus and ambrette. woody ambers, aldehydes and various modifiers could also be useful. Top note pleasant-ification , projection and longevity would be most obvious results he's after, as this will be available worldwide.

    I was re-reading my e-mail and, as long as I get it right, it looks like he's up for a "how I do it" version of the Molecules series by Escentric Molecules but with 97% of natural ingredients and 3% of synthetics....

    This sketch is fascinating. I am going to guess that one of the things that he is going to do is put some "air" into the composition by use of synthetics? I love this direction! I can't wait for this.

    MB, those are sketches, projects and ideas on how the bottle/composition should look lile...

    here are a bunch of notes from the pyramid: Vanille, Patchouly, Rose, Jasmine, Poivre rose, Santal, Tabac + 1

    Thw whole composition is supposed to include 13 ingredients. The ones listed above are just part of them...I'm sure there's something crucial we're still missing...

    Hmmm. A dry aromatic soft balsamic floral? OR NOT!! Who knows? It is alll very exciting though.

    Meantime check this out if you haven't already http://www.odriu.com/ecommerce/store.aspx. You'll notice that the Linfidele 1003 is sold out...... for ever. I'm so relieved that I got mine in time!

    Its sounds kind of interesting to me. I wonder what the role of the citrus and rose play(major or minor notes) in the fragrance?
