    Hmm, the original was an attempt at the aventus vibe but without the charm and performance. Wonder what this ones like?

    I'd buy and ship one to you but we can't post frags internationally at the moment. Have you tried contacting their Italian office?

    That's very kind of you and appreciate the thought. Fortunately I'll be in Europe soon and will check the newest one out there. Thanks again.

    a spin off from MAVIVE(ex VIDAL), the manufacturers of Pal Zileri's scents and the old Pino Silvestre, very "meh" scents cashing in on a tourist impression of Venice, same marketing move like Profumum Roma!

    First in Fragrance have them hednic or you could look at Parfumdreams which I think is also based in Germany.

    Edit: I’m referring to the original here. Have no idea if the new one is in stock yet.

    Can someone weigh in on how this one compares to the original (silver cap) version?

    I enjoy the original one but the performance is lacking on my skin. I’m hoping this intense version would fix the longevity issue without modifying the scent profile of its predecessor, but wanted to get some feedback before purchasing.

    @Francolino >> the former manufatures of Pal Zileri - this until March 2014, when the Italian fashion chain Pal Zileri finished the complete perfume line.
