Golden Age Masterpiece
The times known as the perfumery golden years might have passsed, but when i dabbed into my skin this artisanal EnVoyage creation i felt like i have gone back in time into an era where, according my interpretation, the fashion seemed more serious but still chic and the luxury was reflected in every aspect of a product made. Altough the central theme here is carnation flowers this one seems to me, like the scents of the 20's, to look like one of those expensive watches full of little gears turning in a harmonious way at the background. On Fiore di Bellagio i notice at first a green and citrus aroma that vaguely reminds me of rosehips at the same time it seems loosely related to cucumber (an impression that it doesn't last, so don't be scared). The carnation here is typical, warm, spicy, powdery, sensual and at the same time it reflects in a moderate way the several flowers that are mixed into it: for some moments you notice a fruity floral thing which is typical of gardenias, in others you notice an also fruity aroma, but this time related to the banana edge you find in ylang. In other moments, the jasmine smell seems to mixture with the rose impression of the opening to back the spicy and powdery carnation aroma. The rosewood use here seems to be a link between all the flowers, considering that both have in common the sweet and slightly flowery linalool chemical, that rounds the edges in the composition and gives rythm to the flowers mentioned. I think that the base is the moment where Fiore seems a more modern because its resinous aura gives a bigger highlight to a creamy and adult vanilla that gives the perfect touch to the aromatic history that has been unfolding until this moment. Sometimes, through the evolution, i also notice a slightly animalc aura which is hot, a little bit musky and salty, as if this perfect exquisite sophistication example had a more carnal aura which invites you to an intimist erotic experience. This is a very beautiful perfume, of rounded evolution, something that doesn't seem cheap to be made and not easy to be balanced neither. To the ones that miss the gold times, it's worth trying to satisfy the nostalgia wearing this one.
