    Cool Best blind buy ever - Perverso by Baruti - anybody else tried?

    So I came across this fragrance house that I've never heard of before called Baruti. Let me tell you, I'm not really known to be making blind buys very often. I tend to hesitate a lot when choosing fragrances often wearing samples for months on end before I commit to something.

    Anyway, I was reading up on Baruti, browsing their website (https://www.barutiperfumes.com/) and I just REALLY loved the sound of Perverso.
    Ordered it. I kid you not, it arrived in less than 48 hours! (I was in the UK at the time) Did not expect that. Really amazed by the customer service. Oh and inside was also a hand-signed pretty card and two samples - loved that.
    Tried the fragrance and honestly, it was just love at first spray for me. The quality of the fragrance is fabulous, the longevity is beastly. Sooo rich in texture and smells delicious throughout the day. I don't think I've ever received quite so many compliments in the space of two weeks of a perfume I'm wearing haha.

    Here's a brief description from their website:
    "PERVERSO is the latest fragrance in the collection. A unisex gourmand with a smokey dark edge, it pays tribute to all the good things in life. Similar to a decadent dessert, the scent appeals to our most primitive desires through a seductive blend of roasted nuts rum, cocoa, caramel fudge, tobacco, musk and ambergris.

    Notes: Rum, Roasted nut, Cocoa powder, Caramel fudge, Fig, Tobacco leaf, Styrax, Musk, Ambergris."

    This is the promo image from their Instagram :

    This is what the bottle looks like: (image taken off the website)

    Anyways, has anybody else tried anything by Baruti? Has anybody tried Perverso? Want to hear people's thoughts.

    Ive tried several from this house but not this most recent release. Perhaps I'll have a chance to try it in the near future.

    Sounds like an amazing discovery, Mike!

    It's outstanding, one of 2019's best releases.
    Rare, vintage, and niche off-site sales.
    Big list of niche splits.

    I have a sample of Perverso and Dama Koupa (another from Baruti) coming with a recent order I placed. They should arrive next week. I'm looking forward to trying them out.

    Agree. This is an outstanding release. Best gourmand in quite a while. Have gone through a bottle already. I'll be in touch to get in on a decant.
    I saw that!!

    Sounds really interesting, my curiosity is piqued.

    Baruti is a bit of an underrated house, they have some nice releases. This might be my next blind buy. Thanks for posting!

    Cool! Happy that somebody else on here knows them... I couldn't really find many threads weirdly enough.
    Have you tried anything else by them?

    Funny that they are so underrated... any idea why?! I really couldn't find many discussion threads about them on here. Have you tried anything else by them?
    I've just received one of their sample sets in the mail (ordered one after liking Perverso so much) and even though I only smelled Chai and Indigo so far, I can tell that the quality is top notch. Really excited to try the rest.

    I just received my samples today (including one of Hendley Fume, which I am happy to have even though I didn't request it), and Perverso is the first one I'm trying.

    It's very nice. It has the same deep, chocolate woods that I find in Soltice Scents Black Forest, but Perverso is maybe a little darker and smoother. This is definitely worth exploring further.

    My immediate impression is that it's not as good as Akro Dark as far as chocolate gourmands go, but it's definitely good.
