What a scent pyramid!
What a scent pyramid this is. A glance at the base note alone might lead one to suspect that we are dealing with an olfactory overkill. This scent was suggested to me when I asked in the forum about the search for something spicy and woody, where no sticky sweetness is knocked around your nose. The nice Parfuma KJV was so kind to send me a small bottling.

Let's come back to the olfactory overkill, which may be obvious, but olfactory overkill is not present. Even if I don't want to speak of an "overkill", the fragrance remains complex and above all versatile. If you can't cope with this kind of versatility, you are unlikely to get warm with 'Dolce di Giorno'.

Almost Christmassy, as it is heavenly spicy, your own nose will be delighted after the first spray. Dry, very airy cinnamon spreads. It is quite dark and thus differs from other creations that contain this spice. In addition, a pinch of pepper is perceived, but this does not cause any stinging in the nose - that's good!
This cinnamon darkness is, I think, only caused by the prune, which catches the eye quite prominently as soon as you take a look at the pyramid of scents. Plums can be very squeaky, if not sticky-sweet. Here it's different.
The plum seems to be a dried plum, which therefore has a slightly sour appearance. Combined with cinnamon and pepper, this creates Christmassy associations.
So far, it all seems very dry, dusty and slightly acidic to me. Not everybody's gonna like that. I, however, take great pleasure in it. Also, not entire building complexes are olfactorically contaminated at once, so that the associations regarding the Christmas season and the associated contemplation are more and more confirmed. Christmas also means not to put oneself too much in the foreground, which in my opinion is part of that contemplation
But enough moralizing. Let's get back to the scent.

The dry and spicy cinnamon, which skilfully accompanies the dried plum, should continue to dominate the smell for several hours. Only later are the Christmas delicacies packed in a sandalwood bowl. The creaminess so typical for this wood sets in, pushing back the dominant spice a little. Someone throws another small - really small - vanilla pod into that bowl, which brings a little sweetness into play.
With the insertion of the woods and the light, fortunately very subtle sweetness, "Dolce di Giorno" begins to cling more and more to its own skin. Cinnamon and pepper remain perceptible, but they no longer communicate so much to the surroundings. The wearer may enjoy this creamy sweetness for a few hours before it slowly and contemplatively recedes.

Only the carrier ?

No, also wearer!

"Dolce di Giorno", like so many other things, is made for all sexes. There is nothing here that is exclusively "masculine" or exclusively "feminine" in appearance. No, everyone should use it.

tender winter morning
the wind plustered the white curtains into the room.it was cool this morning. she closed the window, her skin, from the shower still warm, smelled softly like apple and pepper.
she stroked her wet hair back .
plum, he had whispered when he kissed her on the neck yesterday; rum, plum, cinnamon and thyme.
"what do you want", she had asked laughing: should I christmas a goose roast?
but he wouldn't be misled.
wood, light wood...
"What do you mean?"
so you smell, he answered radiantly.
no one had ever said that before

now she stood in front of her mirror and sniffed curiously in her own crook of her arm. and couldn't stop at all....

Beautiful and unique unisex scent
Up top I get a cinnamon-spicy, sweet and woody plum. Fairly strong, very natural. Great blend. Over the first 10 minutes, the scent gets more and more woody. Ultimately, I get a VERY strong cedar wood on top of a sweet and spicy cinnamon plum. SUPER WOODY and pretty spicy when smelled up close. Sillage is more sweet cinnamon plum, with a hint of vanilla. Most definitely unisex, but may lean very slightly more masculine than feminine. 30 minutes in, woods and spices tone down and the scent smooths out quite a bit. Plum, cinnamon, and vanilla remain at forefront. Sweet and pleasant. A classy gentlemen could pull this off. Well-dressed and confident. Could be worn day or night. A woman could pull it off too. Might be a little too spicy and woody for some women at first (imo), but I think the dry down would be appreciated. I really appreciate this scent. For the Spring, Autumn, and Winter.

As always B1920 walks their own way. Sounds neigh impossible to pull off a classy cinnamon/plum, but they do it. Kudos.
