Dusty Indian sari shopping
A pleasant enough, slightly sweet, herbal, almost Indian aroma that is reminding me of walking into an Indian sari shop and hanging around the joss stick sales area. There is a pleasing dustiness to this composition along the saffron and rose lines. A highly familiar sort of scent that reminds one of sticky indian sweet pastries mixed with dark woods in a dark and extremely dusty room with a heap of dried rose petals in the corner. There is a cold aspect that hangs in there with all the dusty, rose, indian florals and woods that just about saves this from being synthetic vanillary cloying. The dustiness could do with a little taming to take it nearer to freshness. Otherwise this is pleasant.

The Rose and Synthetic Oud Genre Gains Yet *Another* Entry...
Hatria goes on with a light airy rose and watery synthetic Oud duo with just a hint of jasmine support before quickly moving to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart the rose turns significantly powdery as the synthetic smelling watery Oud remains as co-star adding lightly sweetened saffron spice support. During the late dry-down the rose and synthetic Oud recede, revealing slightly sweet, moderately creamy sandalwood in the base, turning into the late star through the finish. Projection is average, as is longevity at about 8 hours on skin.

Hatria is one of the most familiar offerings from the artisanal house Angela Ciampagna and one of the easiest to like. As soon as the composition is sprayed on skin the wearer immediately notices the seemingly ubiquitous rose and synthetic Oud combination. The composition distinguishes itself a bit in its mid-section as the rose turns quite powdery, adding in saffron spice not so unlike Aramis' superior Perfume Calligraphy Saffron flanker, but swapping in the powder for the honeyed facet found in the Aramis. To the powder averse like me, this stage was a bit unnerving, though the powder never quite reaches an intolerable level, staying *just* under the bar. The relatively dry, slightly creamy sandalwood late dry-down is a bit mundane, though certainly competent. In some respects that kind of sums up my opinion of the composition is general... Hatria is certainly appealing on some level, but one can't shake the feeling of "been there, done that," and I'll add "done better." The bottom line is Hatria is an easy enough composition to like, but it really is just too similar to other less expensive superior offerings in the crowded rose/synthetic Oud genre, earning it a "good" 3 stars out of 5, but a mild avoid recommendation. If one is looking for a superior rose/Oud composition, I recommend sampling the far superior Thirty-Three by Ex Idolo, or the two "Rose" and "Saffron" Perfume Calligraphy flankers by Aramis before opening your wallet for Hatria.

Rose-oud with an Italian vibe
Hatria opens with a really compelling and thick rose-oud combo which smells finally slightly different from the usual clichés of these notes, so don’t think of Montale rose-ouds or similar stuff. Of course that’s the family, but Ciampagna made some efforts to do it in a slightly more personal way. It’s dark, classy and “juicy” as one may expect, but has also a salty, balsamic-herbal quality which definitely brings the blend closer to a Mediterreanean inspiration – something more unusual for such notes in my opinion. The notes are quite simple to get, they smell quality to me and are perfectly blended: rose, herbs, oud, a balmy-ambery sweet base accord with a great sandalwood note, and an overall warm breeze echoing vintage fougères (cloves, patchouli, musk...). The “caramel” note, luckily I almost don’t get it; more than an individual note, I think “caramel” here (whatever they used to build that) provides just a sort of dark, warm, slightly sticky thickness that perfectly gives “weight” to the composition. Another note which I don’t get is saffron, although I do feel a sort of dusty, spicy, “culinary” and Mediterranean feel. Most of all anyway Hatria is about rose, oud, patchouli, sweet-balsamic warmth. A sure “yes” for me overall: it smells deep and quality, and the composition – which is quite linear, though – is crafted in a way that it conveys a fascinating feel of warm abandon as you may experience in a sleepy desolated village in the deep South of Italy – kind of dusty, sweet, earthy, with a balmy feel of “suspension”. Lights and shades. Refined but with a nice “rural” feel.
