The chapel above the lake
It is still early in the morning, the sun shines from a cloudless sky. The thunderstorms of yesterday are forgotten and seem to have washed and cleansed everything. The air is still cool, but the heat of the day is already in it. There is a hint of blossoms and citrus in the air.
First, the path passes through the forest. Spicy needles cover the ground and resins drip from the fresh wounds made by yesterday's thunderstorm. Soon it leads steeply up the side of the mountain, the chapel is already visible, but still high above us. It shines bright white over the lake. The closer we get, the more distinct the smell of incense becomes. Yesterday was Easter Sunday and the remnants of the procession still hang in the air.
It gets increasingly drier and warmer and when we reach the chapel after an hour the smell of incense is as clear as the day before. It mixes with the last dew in the bushes - fresh and inviting to devotion at the same time. We pause and gaze out over the lake deep below. It is slowly awakening. The bustle on the boardwalks will soon set in but here is only calm.

---------------------

The Vinaccioli e Spezie of Acqua del Garda is a fine and quiet incense fragrance. He starts with a very slightly bitter bergamot, which gets a rather fruity note through the orange blossoms. However, these are only supporting actors, the main actor is the incense. Dry, resinous and smoky in equal parts, it's there from the start and lingers until the end. Spices are certainly in there too, but I couldn't say which ones. Dry wood notes are still perceptible and so the scent remains fairly linear as well. Grapes or their seeds are not there.
In the middle part, the incense reminded me of a church, but a bright, friendly one. There is nothing gloomy or dark. Later on, though, there isn't. Here I have the feeling that some patchouli comes to it and makes it a little more "moist". Oud? Maximum as dry wood.
So the fragrance then sounds out. The silage is rather restrained from the beginning. The durability is quite good, 6-7 hours you can enjoy the peace.

The chapel is of course real, the Chiesetta di Santa Barbara is located west of Riva del Garda halfway up the Cima S. A. T., on which a nice little via ferrata, the Via Ferrata dell Amicizia, leads. Easter is a good time to do it, it doesn't go up too high, so is quickly clear of snow, and you don't really want to go through the exposed west face in high summer...

Thanks to Cafeliberte for the great hiking letter!

Olfactory path I around Lake Garda
At the Riviera dei Limoni (the citrus shore) of Lake Garda citrus fruits are still cultivated in orangeries (it. limonaia) (although not as much as in former times).

Cedars grow in the woods around Lake Garda. The woods are interrupted by vineyards where grapes are grown to make Bardolino wine. Due to the proximity of the lake there is a Mediterranean climate, mild in winter, hot and dry in summer.

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday before the beginning of Lent, the services of the "Triduum Sacrum" have been celebrated in Pieve on Lake Garda since the 18th century. A special event where not only tons of incense are burned. A "Macchina del Triduo", a splendidly illustrated candle holder made of painted wood with 365 candles for every day of the year, is placed in the church. Finally, the candles are lit. The light fills the sanctuary and the faithful sing songs based on folk tunes.

All this represents Itinerario Olfattivo I very well. The citric top note quickly gives way to incense. The incense is very intense, the cedars are also very nicely present. And grape seed sets green highlights. The incense in Itinerario Olfattivo I is not sweaty, but dry. That's why this perfume also works in the heat of the terrible summer 2018, which is unfortunately not dry here.

Itinerario Olfattivo I also smells good on women, at least on old women, which I could prove today. The durability is good, the projection is okay. I will wear it for going out, daily, in the evening, at work and in my free time but of course not for sports. Because sport is... yes exactly.

The box is very pretty, classically made. With dragonfly pattern. It's much bigger than the bottle. The bottle is also classically functional. A curved line. It's good in the hand. The plastic cover is a bit difficult to remove and snaps into place when you put it back on.

Eau de cologne
Typical Italian cologne, the best is its beginning, in that the Italian perfume houses are the numbers one, lasts much more than most of this type perfumes, although it is noticed that the Oud, White Musk are synthetic cheap or not very successful.

It's something that I will not buy when I finish what I have left.
