    Default NEW FRAGRANCE - Profumo di Firenze - TERRAROSSA - HYPEWORTHY!

    Hey guys,

    Just want to start of by saying ive been out of the frag world for a few months. I built up my collection to where I wanted it and decided to give my nose a bit of a break. But after a couple months I wondered into barneys for some other suiting items and decided to check the frag counter to see if there was anything new. Usually I dont listen to SA's because frankly in my experience they just push certain products not because it smells grat but because its expensive or they want to move it.

    But the SA showed me a new frag from Profumo di Firenze Called Terrarossa. I cant remember if its a limited edition or not but im almost positive its a barneys exclusive. I tried doing some research on it here but couldnt find anything.

    Bottom line I love this stuff. Tons of compliments when I wear it and the longevity, sillage and projection is very solid. You guys need to get your nose on this. Its a nice Neroli Vetiver combo thats fresh and quite unique in my personal opinion. Some of you more experienced noses might sniff it and know of something similar but its quite new for me.

    Notes are : Calabrian Bergamont, Sweet orange and Neroli from Tunisia, Indonesian Nutmeg, Ylang Ylang and Tuscan Cypress with hatian and javanese veteiver.

    If anyone has sniffed it let me know what you think.
    "Stings the nostrils, in a good way. Im going to be honest with you, that smells like pure gasoline."

    Current Top 5:
    5.) Santa Maria Novella Muschio
    4.) Dior Homme Intense ( Vintage )
    3.) Dior La Collection Privee Ambre Nuit
    2.) Creed Aventus
    1.) Xerjoff Ibitira

    Was sent a sample of this as well and found it to be very nice indeed, let me try and dig it out of the sample box and put it in an atomizer to give a better opinion.

    Follow Up: Got the sample in a sprayer and my initial impression was correct, opens very nicely indeed. It actually reminds me a lot of Colonia Assoluta.

    I'll tell you what, this one is pretty nice.
    Its a high quality soapy, dandy, dry vetiver. The vetiver accord is like Grey Vetiver, sharp, dry, arid, smoky.
    I dont see the connection with Assoluta other than the ylang-ylang.
    All of them in the 1954 series are long lasting EDP, whispy spring/summer fragrances.
    I think much of all of them except the vanilla/cedar Dolce Prospettiva.
    Beautiful fragrances and a refreshing different take compared to the heavier Bois 1920's by Galardi.

    Beautiful bottles with real wood caps with plastic inserts that attach to the bottle with pressure.

    Bottles are indeed very nice.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
