Latest Reviews of Casamorati Fiore d'Ulivo

This is a bright, fresh, citrussy, slightly green floral with just a touch of bitterness to lift it out of sweet floral mundanity. The effect is like a cheerful ray of sunshine, a breath of spring on a cold, grey day. Although I have spent quite a bit of time around olive groves, I confess I'm not actually sure what the flowers smell like. But this perfume is mostly magnolia for me, along with the grassiness I associate with the best Kalamata virgin olive oil. Fragrantica lists basil among the notes, & I do smell it here; in fact it reminds me of Avon's Lemon & Basil, an old summer favourite of mine. This, too, would be wonderfully cooling in hot weather, I think. Around forty-five minutes in, there is a salty/oily aspect, better done IMO than in Slumberhouse's nauseating Pear & Olive. Five hours in it begins to fade to a crisp, clean & soapy musk base, but still with that citrus overtone. At this stage it reminds me of a cleaning product, albeit a posh, high-end one. It all lasts around twelve hours before disappearing.
I enjoyed trying this one, but the fact that it reminds me by turns of a much cheaper fragrance & a household product will prevent me from spending the amount of hard-earned cash that this house demands.

Very luscious, vibrant and alive, that's how I would describe this scent.
Great projection and longevity on the Mrs.
A real head turner for this guy. A shame the Mrs doesn't seem to like it.

I love Darvant's description of this scent as "virile". That's exactly the word I would use to describe it. This makes me think of Bacchus in ancient Rome, wild and sexual. The citrus notes really come through in the top, but the olive is just beneath it, adding sensuality. This is a very green fragrance. Sillage and longevity are both fantastic here.

Over a properly aqueous and sharp citric/floral sombre opening a supreme olive oily touch pervades the Fiore D'Ulivo's elements with its typically greasy and vegetal (slightly fatty/mouldy, acid and musky) power conjuring humid cellars, crushed olives and oily marc. An undistinguished floral/musky vibe counteracts the vegetal "greasiness" and the typical culinary oily opaque undertone. The fragrance is founded over this pleasant game of contrasts. The dry down is slightly more ambery (ambergris), still a bit sour/green (vaguely grapefruit conjuring), virile and restrained. A must try for the lovers of olive oil experiments in perfumery. Natural, slightly wild but pleasant.
