Why I finally got a sample of this fragrance is still not clear to me today. Firstly, this was the complete opposite of what had gone into my bag (namely a fresh, bitter summer scent) and secondly, in retrospect, the note "for your wife, girlfriend or whatsoever" was missing.
But first things first. I generally wonder what happens to the specimens that are packed with you in perfumeries. Most of the ones I get go in the trash unopened. Because the staff doesn't ask if I want any. Because there is no question of which direction it may/should go in. Because maybe a brand has unloaded a huge box whose contents now simply have to get out. Because I already know the scents. It's a pity about all that rubbish, I have in any case decided not to keep quiet about it any more but to say what I want or don't want from now on.
So finally a sample of Vaniglia Eau de Parfum was found at my home. Scent unknown, but I like Acqua di Parma very much, so let's test it.
Puhhhhhh, this thing comes across really perfumed, very dense, very heavy and for my taste also very sweet. Short break, continue testing. AdP-typical also here an undertone of southern fruit tank sounds, but I could not define which exactly. The vanilla is clearly audible from beginning to end, is fully in the room and the fruity edge notes from the beginning give way to a slightly woody touch after hours.
This is all nicely arranged, with a clear line from A to Z, a clean flow and a rather dominant vanilla that does credit to the fragrance and its name.
None of this is mine. Too round, too sweetish, too heavy, too dominant, too soft, but above all too feminine. I definitely see the fragrance set on the ladies' side, I can even imagine it very well there, but on cool or cold days. Durability as known from other AdPs enormous, Sillage of pronounced nature, bottle beautiful as always, here in deep night black with golden writing. It's a looker.
So if you are looking for a beautiful fragrance for the current winter season and love vanilla, a test is highly recommended.
