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.
