I bought a lot of liquidation/old stock perfumes recently from a market trader and this is the best of the bunch by miles!
Release - 2006
Notes:
Top - yuzu/ cardamom/ bergamot
Middle - rosewood/ lotus/ cyclamen
Base - musk/ cedar/ vetiver

This is gorgeous stuff. I get the yuzu, cardamom, rosewood and vetiver as the key players here, with the yuzu, vetiver and cardamom up front in equal amounts. It's a stunning mixture that is very unique.
It's astonishing that this is so under the radar. Only 2 reviews on fragrantica.
Some websites classify it as grune-aquatic...wrong. Not at all.
To me it's heady-spicy/ pungent (?) and very addictive.
Sillage is excellent. Longevity somewhere in the middle, (although some fragrances tend to numb my nose after a while).
I would even encourage a blind buy with this one. It's not expensive and you won't be disappointed.
The vetiver/cardamom drydown is fantastic.

Years ago there was a highly-esteemed basenoter here (or maybe still is here?) who in each and every of his posts called us to wear Roberto Capucci :) Alas, I never had the chance.

Thank you for the recommendation, do not remember to have tested this one either while first released and/or more easily available.
