Reviews of Teatro Alla Scala

This is what Gina Lollobrigida would probably smell like in her mink coat,showing up for opera at the Teatro Alla Scala in Milano, with a tuxedo clad accomplice at her side,smelling like the inside of a Lancia Thema that has been bathed in jasmine and incense. opulent,glamorous, magnetic, irresistible,sultry and sensual. in this scent the evolution is not so much one of head,heart, base,but rather of the way in which the notes jockey for attention.all are present from the beginning to the end.

There is an aldehyde feel in the opening,kind of like layering Coco and N 5,like a glass of bubbly they burn off pretty quickly,and the beeswax and orris root accord takes over,and stays there for the life of the wear. the white flowers are very apparent in the heart,they are kind of abstract, mostly jasmine. there is rose too but it comes out only after a few hours.the heart is kind of floral that feels demure,all in gilded living room with wild animals running free.deep musk and ceremonial incense.the amber is very resinous and spicy and not too scent makes feel like a cool,black,glistening mink coat over naked skin.

I love the opening. There's what smells like a rose note to me. The direction of the development is all wrong for me, though. It turns me into a dryer sheet.

You might think this as classic feminine at the open with the Champagne-ed Aldehydes and soft Fruity puffs, however, listen to the Symphonic bouquet of Florals which breathes Genderless with it's balance of Feminine, Masculine and everything between flavours. Bergamot so very beautifully slicing with it's Citric and bitterness.
The supportive base of Musk,Civet, Oakmoss,Patch/Vetiver and Woooooh!Beeswax offers a "to die for" slightly urinous animalic.
In EDT this mates with my Masculine skin as a Regal-led Chypre.
Drydown is Mounted with Cream Savon.
Perfume Heaven folks!

Stardate 20191101:

The epitome of perfumery (Italian or otherwise). Perhaps the best floral ever made. The only other that is close is the vintage First by VCA (Elena's one and only masterpiece).
The aldehydes are not in your face here but support the whole structure. The rose, jasmine, honey and civet make up the core of this with aldehydes and musk providing support. The development and complexity is where the Italian perfumery is at its best and Krizia delivers.
I have tried both EDP and EDT. Both are amazing and FBW++ . But they are similar enough that you don't need both. I like EDT much better - brighter, more development and less aldehyde.

For some reason Krizia is not talked about a lot here and elsewhere on the interwebs.
Go get this one while still at $1/ml.
Don't think, just do it

This is an INCREDIBLE vintage fragrance! WHY did they discontinue this? Strong aldehyde, Iris, ylang ylang, and geranium combine to make this as sharp as a needle. Dry-down calms to a more spicy oriental with traces of the aldehyde still present. Well made!
