    Default Peccato Originale, new Italian niche line

    Peccato Originale (Original Sin) is a new niche line from Italy that (I think) launched in early 2013 with names taken from the apothecary world, like "Morphine Injection", "Extract of Madness", "Miraculous Essence".

    "After exploring the cellar of her old family pharmacy, Silva Monti Santini stumbled across a box of timeworn recipes and scents. Each scent was intended to explore a different type of love, themes of romance and charisma, passion and sensitivity. This provocative collection of unisex fragrances has been recreated staying faithful to the initial recipes and the beautiful packaging is derived from the original apothecary emulsion balms and vintage Italian medicinal boxes."

    "Six fragrances which stimulate the senses, which open up to new sensorial experiences. Six olfactory harmonies which translate Galen’s recipes dating the 1920s where the spirit of the fragrances tends to lightness like a cool breeze encouraging new journeys to discover being and human nature."
    I can't find any reviews of the line, except a comment on fragrantica saying that the fragrances were (disappointingly) lighter than she had imagined. Reading through the notes nothing really caught my attention expect thinking that some of them seem to have a mish-mash of ingredients that doesn't really appeal to me. They are becoming more widely available, so please chime in if you have tried any of them!

    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.

    I see some outlandish notes.
    Let's see how 'niche' they turn out to be.
