Bottles are nice.
Thread: Antonio Visconti
Anyone tried anything from this perfume house?
Did a quick sniff. Very conservative. Nothing challenging.
They had a rose, a tobacco, a fleur de nuit and 3 more.
Bottles are handmade. EDP in 100ml for about $225.
I tried Tabarom.
A honeyed tobacco with hints of cinnamon and plenty of aged carnation. I say aged because it doesn't have that fresh carnation smell. Very damp & dense sensation. It isn't projecting more than 2 cm off of my skin but in those two cm it feels like there's a nuclear reaction.
Dry down is a crisp tobacco leaf.
Bottles are nice.
I'm familiar with Visconti di Modrone, but not Visconti. This must be something new.
Quick question, kindly requesting any help please: how do the fragrances of this house compare to the ones by (reportedly or genuinely) traditional Italian fragrance houses like Acqua di Parma, Acqua di Genova etc. If it's already more or less similar to the typically Mediterranean fragrance accords of e.g. these two other aforementioned manufacturers, that I am genuinely fond of, it could become interesting for me.
Good to know, many thanks. Also being a Guerlain fan, it thus makes the possible upcoming testings (as soon as I encounter this fragrance house IRL) twice as fun.
The brand has been around for quite some time now. I have a sample of Exstra de Cedra, which I like. It's strong and well blended.
^^^ Exactly. The brand is around from the beginning of '900 and was founded by a florentine glove maker who relocated in Paris. I don't know how much of this heritage is gimmick but, as a matter of fact, the fragrances are indeed extremely classic and conservative. Stunning bottles.
