The perfumer says: 

I visited Rome in the oppressive July heat with all the other American tourists. One day I was walking through winding ancient streets and came upon the fiore de campo. For 150 years, it has been filled with vendors selling lucious Italian fruits all arranged in beautiful boxes. Color, fragrance, and sweet flavor are everywhere. This fume is that experience. I've never made something so fruity gourmand. I use strawberry, mandarin, and black currant extracts for a wonderful realness. A touch of poplar like the crates that hold the fruits give the base a nice structure too.

Latest Reviews of Roman Fruit Sellers

Roman Fruit Sellers is a miss from D.S. & Durga...a house that I love many works from. This particular fragrance smells more like aroma chemicals than any other DS&D fragrance I've tried. There is a soft melange of fruitiness in the opening without being able to identify the listed fruits individually, at least not for me. This is mixed with a chemical smell. Then, there is a slightly synthetic woodiness in the dry down...and that's it. I was very excited by the marketing for this one and if it would have smelled like it was described, I would be a big fan, but unfortunately it smells nothing like that to me. If you can sample it then you could see what you think, but if not as I mentioned, this one is a safe miss, IMO.
