In Chandler Burr`s brilliant book Luca Turin opened his admiration about TWO ITALIAN PARFUMS - Fendi and Helietta. And pity - no comments about the smell.
Since I read that I was desperately looking for the second.
Maybe, some europeans or italiennes saw it on shelves?
How it smells like? Is it still available?
Thanks a lot in advance.

Just to point out it was the 'Teorama' by Fendi, not the eponymous one. Afraid I haven't semlled either but if Helietta is "orange-peel chypre with a woody angle' I sure want to try that!

Hello, Dino!
One of those Princesses is a designer - I`m sure that she has a boutique in Rome.
Would you be so nice to make some investigations in Italian web?

Can’t really help you with scent in itself but can give you a bit more background.

Helietta Caraciollo is related to Marella Agnelli who was born a Principessa Caraciollo di Castagneto. I think you must look for Helietta’s heyday during the 60’s and the beginning of the 70’s during which the Cinecitta Studios were believed to become the new Hollywood and aristocratic ladies actually began to work for their money. Helietta’s main claim to fame was that she designed the World’s first round handbag for Jacqueline Kennedy and some jewellery for ‘Death in Venice’ and some other classics.
