What I get is a blast of immortelle (aka everlasting flower), supported by a hint of mandarin. The immortelle will show a its delicate sandy/sweet-but-not-sweet facet, supported by Villoresi's signature spice blend (mostly cloves, black pepper and a bit of cumin probably, but gladly no crushing cinnamon!). Then, the tobacco absolute will create a royal blend, showing some leather-y undertones. In the base, a thin but very noticeable vetiver will give the fragrance a salty twist (nearly incensy) and, coupled with a hint of amber and musk, will have the tobacco lay on an old Florentine leather couch. The only downside of this EDT might be its modest performance, but it is my guess that the EDP might have corrected that (looking forward to try it).
This is a more masculine take on HdP 1740, that tones down the sweetness but results in being surprisingly moe wearable than 1740. This is the tobacco fragrance I was waiting for a whole fraghead's life, to finalize my 'holy grail triad' of tobacco fragrances, together with Eau d'Italie Bois d'Ombrie and Guerlain Vetiver.
Whaaaat a journeyyyyyy..... Grazie Lorenzo, grazie di cuore!
Cold seasons, 30+
If you like a well blended incense tobacco and liqueur scent then this is it. You can make out all the notes yet its subtle. You can just keep sniffing it.
It is in fact better than Extreme Incense by Montale which was a favourite up to now.
Very nice but its evening wear.
A blaze of dry and mellow spices, seasoned woods, soapy/resinous tobacco, wild herbs and genuine leather for a refined olfactory tribute to the Tuscany's atmosphere of rural chic farmhouses and cozy wood fires of the ancient country cottages on the hills. Musk and smoke compact the crazy elements (prickly spices, hesperides, roots and herbs) of the boisterous dry initial drama (vaguely a la L'Artisan Al Oudh) while a delicious ambery patchouli pairs balmy tobacco in a sort of final more pacified heavenly soapiness (sensual and enveloping). Precious resins provide a final remote wave of antiquity, a whiff of solid roots and childhood-memories of the coutryside's fall seasons. Over the initial Atman Xaman's super spicy (vaguely indie, slightly liquorous, "Slumberhousesque" and burnt sugary) opening (middle way between a spicy/agricole crude Slumberhouse's accord, a boozy/spicy more urban alchemy a la Idole de Lubin and a drier more "accomplished" dusty/spicy/woody twist a la Parfumerie Generale Coze 02 or L'Artisan Parfumeur Al Oudh) tobacco, cistus and amber/patchouli start to become prominent under my amateur mediterranean nose while leather is more evident in a central stage. Woods are everywhere (discreet and barely aged on the side of dry herbs and arcane roots). Resinous elements finally master over the drier ones for a final wisely oriental musky/tobacco-accord. A perfume smelling about agrestic left back traditions, genuine recipes, old roots, dusty books and stout souls of province, a musky smell of coziness and true ancient rituals from the master italian Perfumer Lorenzo Villoresi.
