    Default Invitation to fragrance project

    Dear friends,
    I have started composing 5 new fragrances that will feature these 5 Italian “Art cities”.
    Venice, Rome, Florence, Naples and Milan.
    It is the new "The Italian series".
    Having lived in Italy for the last 26 years, I would like to interpret the soul of the "Bel paese" with these fragrances.
    I have the pleasure to invite Basenoters to participate in this new project, either by helping in the concept or in evaluating the free samples that will soon be available.

    Sounds interesting. I would love to try them. Are they going to be male, unisex or feminine frags?
    Much like hearing a piece of music that can instantly take you back to a certain time and place, the faintest trace of a fragrance can evoke strong memories and powerful reactions from within.-Roja Dove

    There will be for every taste, male, female and Uniex, although these distinctions I believe are cultural more than belonging to the nature of fragrances themselves.
    Moreover, when using natural ingredients as the frame itself of perfumes, some perfumes based on traditionally "male" ingredients such as Labdanum, Tobacco, Frankincense and woods have such a success among women that they become unisex by fact.
    You can already read the beginning of the project and help me, by participating on the profumo's friends club.

    I shall welcome you there.

    I agree. I love to wear men's and women's frags equally. I wear what pleases me.

    Please include me. Keep the names in Italian. I am busy right now, but it is not going to happen until later in the year, right?

    "Balconies" is brilliant. "Heart" -- I feel has to change, too common.

    Yes Twolf, it will happen within the next few month.
    "Cuore di Napoli" is the name proposed by my friend from Naple, does it sound better to you? You can post your comments on the profumo's friends club, this is the place where the project takes place.

    I'd missed out on Tawaf the last time. Hope I can be of service this time round. Coincidentally I had visited those cities (except Naples) while on my honeymoon in Dec 2011.

    I would also love to participate.

    Another vote for keeping the names in Italian. Cuore di Napoli sounds indeed far more intriguing than "Heart".

    I would love to participate if you still have room for more people. I agree with the others, keep the name in Italian. I like the name you're considering, Cuore di Napoli, very much.

    Welcome Diamondflame, I think that you still can get a free Tawaf sample from STC with any order there.

    Dear friends,

    The first version of the first perfume of the “Italian series” is ready to be sampled. It is “Milano Café”.

    The concept is that the characteristic smell of Milano is the aroma of coffee that invades the streets, the working places and that is present in every social occasion, be it professional or leisure.
    I have added the chocolate, that is either added as powder to the cappuccinos or given together with the cup of coffee as a single square piece nicely packed.

    The third note of the accord is a multi ethnic note of woods and spices that features the Somali and Arab shops and restaurants that have flourished in the city in the last 20 years.

    The perfume is warm, dry and woody. The original blast of coffee- chocolate melts quickly in the woody-spicy notes and using it gives 2 types of satisfactions, the first minute “soo coffee” and then after that the heart and end of the perfume.

    The free samples will be available
    With Lisa at STC (1 ml) along with any order of decants passed there (from next week)
    At profumo.it from now on (5.5 ml) with any order passed there (from today)

    You can test the perfume and write your feed back, comments, reviews on the profumo's friends club thread. According to what you say I shall either keep the perfume as it is or adjust it for a second round of sampling.

    Hi, I'd very much like to be involved in the development - am I right in assuming I would first need to make a purchase from either of those websites in order to acquire a sample? Thanks.

    Hello Woodoodanny, we are discussing this on the Project thread, maybe you would like to give some suggestion about it.

    The new version of "Milano Caffè" is ready.
    More sofisticated, more Elegant, and also more coffee. I prefer it, the "Ethnic" insiders part of milano is still there but subdued, as any visiytor to the city would see it.
    There is more of the urban, sofisticated, elegant and young fashion Milano in the new version.
    I am curious to see which of the two wins the heart of those who liked the first one.

    You can get free samples as usual from STC and profumo.it.
    Those of you who did not have the first version can now ask for both free samples.

    Your comments are desired at Profumo friends club group

    The new Milano Caffé arrived at STC. You can get your free sample when you purchase your usual decants. If you did not get the first version, ask for both of them, they are both free.

    Hello Ipp. The free samples come from Lisa of STC by USPS. Just order anything from her and you will be entitled to them.
    If you mean about our carrier from Italy, it is UPS.
