    Default NEW LINE - Note di Profumum

    Lucky Scent is now stocking a new line of fragrances from Profumum Roma. I just ordered a few samples. Has anybody had a chance to try them?

    I received an unsolicited sample of Vet_G16 with a recent order I made. It was an earthy, spicy, smoky vetiver. Pleasant.

    Thanks for the reply. That's one of the samples I ordered. I'm looking forward to trying it!

    I just ordered the sample pack. Some of these look promising. I hope the change in format doesn't indicate any change in quality. These have always been lovely scents.

    Reviews I’ve seen on Facebook indicate these are softer and a bit more mainstream than their regular line. I agree about the bottle size, given the potency of most of their scents.

    Never cared for any of the regular Profumum line, so these I went in highly skeptical to say the least.

    That said, I am wearing Meraviglia from a sample, and Lucky Scent is pretty much spot-on with their comparison to Portrait of a Lady (except that it is even more “sexy,” whatever that means). It gets the jammy rose, patch, incense trio spot-on accurate to my favorite perfume. So far projection is excellent. Time will tell about longevity (something POAL is about as good as it gets with), but count me *highly* impressed with this one already. Too bad it forces you to buy 100ml as others have said, as the bottles are quite pricey, and the juice is rather potent (30-50ml would have been more than enough). Outstanding stuff. Now I will have to buy the darn sample pack to sniff the rest.
    Current Top Ten:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Jasmin Antique (Rogue Perfumery)

    3) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills) - tie
    3) Giorgio V.I.P. Special Reserve (Giorgio Beverly Hills) - tie

    5) Dia pour Homme vintage edt (Amouage)

    6) Nombre Noir (Shiseido)
    7) Lucifer (Renaissance Fragrances)
    8) Polo vintage (Ralph Lauren)
    9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy)
    10)Javanese Patchouli (Zegna)

    Currently wearing: Nombre Noir by Shiseido

    I'm wearing 'Luce' a benzoin treat. This one really gets into your sinuses and provides long-lasting enjoyment.

    'Luci Dell'Est' is a bit of a disappointment. It's supposed to have violet but all I detect is strong cedar and possibly cardamom. A pleasant, woody scent but no violets.

    'Amante' is delightful. A floral/amber combination with some fruit.

    Osa- is a white flower explosion. It turns out to be ylang ylang, tuberose and a banana aftertaste. It could be confused with coconut. There’s definitely a tropical note.

    Vet_G16- was a subtle vetiver. Floral with an interesting violet aspect. The Myrrh adds warmth and smoky depth. Unisex and mild. Not harsh.

    The few I've tried from Profumum Roma have all impressed me with their richness. They seem to take things to the nth degree in terms of opulence, and are priced accordingly. Hearing that this newer line (launched in 2016) is

    “New fragrances that speak new languages. (Un)veiled and urban, different and at times extreme.”

    .
    ...is quite intriguing.
