A trip through Barcelona
The name refers to a crossroads between two important streets in Barcelona, at number 600 of the Avinguda Diagonal and, through its evolution, it should paint the flow of a day in that Catalan city.
D600 opens with an explosion of spicy notes, mainly black pepper, resting on an intertwining of iris and vetiver. The initial impact is decisive, green and quite fresh, a sensation that continues even when the top notes give way to a more powdery heart, where you can see sweet veins given by vanilla, but everything remains hinged on the woody notes, which will characterize all evolution.
Evolution that, to say the least, is interesting, especially when in the drydown I found myself sniffing in the air something similar to the "old" Dior Homme (it would be incorrect not to mention it) and I was wondering how it was possible to now be in front of this iris full, "buttery", since the opening started with pepper and vetiver. But, in fact, the stated purpose of this fragrance was to accompany the wearer through the streets of Barcelona during all different phases of the day. I don't know if they have succeeded, I will tell you when I'll go there, but for sure the D600 lasts a whole day: almost 12 hours have passed and I still feel it clear and strong.
In conclusion: a very interesting perfume for its evolution, which I do not fully think it's my kind of fragrance, due to the spicy opening, but which deserves a lot of respect, especially for its duration.
