    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.

    I too would like a chance to evaluate your samples and see what notes you feel encapsulates each City.

    I'll help in any way I can. I've never been to Italy, but I'm mostly Italian and come from an ALL Italian family. I'd love to smell them when they are available, but I'll help in the conception as well.

    I love 2b the 1st 2review ur fragrances on BN.

    Just let me know how I can be of any assistance
    On Sillage:

    If someone can smell me at more than an arm's length away, I'm probably wearing too much of whatever I applied; if she can distinctly make out the top notes, then perhaps I left the house a bit too soon..

    On icebreaker:

    I tend to compliment people on their frags to make short talks rather than anything more meaningful.

    Welcome to you all, you can help already getting into the profumo's friends club, which is the location where the project happens, and already voting the "concept" questions that I have put there.
    Ask your own questions, about the free samples for instance, and I shall explain how it will work.

    Italy is my favorite place in the world, and I would be thrilled to be a part of any project that honors such an amazing country, even if I'm only a sniffer.

    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.

    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

    Profumo, is it possible that you send me a sample of the new one? I liked the first one found it interesting but a bit too spicey, curious how the new one changed.

    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.
