Where is the Orient?
Hi guys, welcome to a new fragrance commentary. Today it's about a brand that, it seems, has been around for quite a long time, not necessarily in terms of fragrances, but it is said that Farmacia SS. Annunziata was mentioned in documents as early as the 16th century. Of course, everything has changed a lot until today, but what doesn't change over time? Cool cars from the 60-90s are increasingly replaced by egg-like round structures (well, some at least, at least some models are still nice and angular with huge radiator grills, I still find that good-looking... :D), TV and cinemas have to give way to streaming services, women turn from beautiful graces to fierce furies (oh yes, it's like that! :D) and even fragrances are always changing. Whether it's the oud boom, Iso-E super hype or whatever, everything is totally in at some point.

Anyway, I'm coming to Iso's fragrance now, which is supposed to give off the scent of oriental markets. And I mean, of course, the spices at the market, not the sweaty market visitors or screeching perfumas, uh, I meant, of course, screeching sellers who can be so skillful that they sell you a whole carpet at once, even if you just want to buy a new case for your smartphone and do not even have room for one of these huge oriental carpets :D

But well, so then to the fragrance!

The scent:
The scent starts with pepper, which comes across as a little green and watered down. I can smell a little musk right now, which provides a little sweetness. A little later I smell woods, which make the fragrance a little spicier.
The pepper seems less watered down later, but has not turned out particularly strong in its intensity, so here no one has to fear that you would have to sneeze or something :D
Later it continues to smell of light pepper, resinous notes, sweetish musk and woods that are not really determinable. All quite okay, but really not spectacular. At least the watered-down impression of the beginning is later in the base completely gone.
Later it smells as described, then becomes a little nicer, because it becomes more resinous, but because of its low charisma one smells the beautiful fragrance notes actually only if you press the nose at the sprayed place flat. Too bad!

The sillage and the durability:
The sillage is relatively weak from the start. Normally pepper notes radiate much stronger to me, but the scent here is as I said weak, so you have to get closer to be able to smell it on others. The shelf life is also not particularly long turned out, so that the fragrance is already after a few hours, I would say so after four hours, quite faded.

The flacon:
The bottle is black and solid and not transparent. You can see the brand's intricately designed logo on the front, as well as the name of the fragrance. Everything quite okay.

Conclusion:
Soo... so I don't know. Isos has for me with the Orient so purely nothing to do. Sure, it smells a little spicy, but just more like general spices, mainly pepper, but that's really it. Later, it gets even slightly sweeter with the musk. The way the scent smells here, it smells extremely mundane to me, really boring and it's something you've had on your nose 1000 times before. It's one of those fragrances where the spark is not only rudimentary, but not at all, because within a few minutes you've completely written off the scent and are looking around for something else. Especially since the fragrance also not normal nice smells (so normal like many other fragrances, but just also pleasant), where you could say: "Hm, is quite nice". It is not bad now, at least not in the repulsive sense, but as I said just totally boring and beyond that extremely weak in terms of sillage and durability. That's a shame if you have to write that about a fragrance, but not every fragrance is just beautiful or even at least somewhat interesting.

Otherwise, the fragrance would probably be usable for spring, because it would evaporate too quickly on cold days.

And that's about it. Soo... see, that was a short comment without me making fun of you women! Didn't I? I'll check it out... noooo, the line about the Furies pulls it all back down... I guess I just can't leave it alone, heh heh :D

Well then, have a nice evening and see you soon :)
Oh and of course a happy new year to all of you! We "see" us here also in the new year, hopefully also all healthy :)

Outside-I'll be off!
Unfortunately I couldn't find anything about Isos, more about Isis and of course a lot about Iso! On the page of Farmacia you can read about the following: A spicy fragrance; memories of flavours and scents from distant lands.
Well then let's go to the distant lands.
Isos welcomes you with a cool and fresh surge, minimally spicy and spicy. My thoughts are immediately with Molecule01, but also similarities to the Zarkos Buddha-Wood, Oud'ish or Supercharged Molecule can be recognized. After a few minutes a hint of mint accompanies the few flowers left over in autumn, these also have a slight white and ozonic touch, you can imagine yourself as Shelter Island Light, but without oud and aquatics.
In some cases they exude a pungent aroma, but they do not particularly characterise the scent. This is mainly due to the spices and woods that can bring a lot of "spicy" in, but the emphasis is on the woods that radiate a nice dryness, perhaps stolen at 450. The fragrance has for me a Nordic touch ala agonist, cool, clean, striking. But could also fit very well into the series of Profumum Roma's Thundra, Olibanum, Santalum and IchNusa, since they all have a clear ethereal character - a common denominator. Perhaps this effect is also due to the "fresh", invigorating pepper (juniper?), which gives Isos a certain edge and then distinguishes it from 450 Isos has a slightly meditative effect for me, perhaps it also means "distant lands", so that would fit pretty well..like in the sports check advertisement "I'll be gone then".
For me already the 3rd beautiful scent of Farmacia SS. even if no one has made me yuchtz completely so far, I like all of them above average so far. The shelf life is very good with 6-7 hours, the Sillage moves in the midfield.

Suitability for everyday use: 8/10
Well-being factor: 8/10
Wow effect: 7/10
Price/Performance: 7/10
Idea+Implementation: 9/10
Packaging/Bottling: 9/10

Even though Isos suffers from some of the same issues of projection and longevity that plague other fragrances from Farmacia Santissima Annunziata, it also has unique qualities I find appealing. Whether or not those qualities are unique enough or appealing enough to pay the full bottle prices of this house is another matter.

Instead of focusing on Isos's shortcomings, there is a particular aspect of the perfume some may find to their liking. If you live in a warm weather climate you may find it suitable as a deep, yet cooling sort of cologne. That is, as long as you don’t expect Isos to perform like a more potent, longer lasting edt or edp.

It fills this cologne-like requirement in two ways. The first is that Isos provides an actual cooling effect, felt as a slight tingling, mint/menthol sensation when spritzed on the skin. Similarly, each time I catch its scent I get a slight sensation of menthol. Now, before I put anyone off, let me emphasize the word “slight." It really is just a VERY mild sensation.

Isos also has a textural aura I find cooling. It's a rough, gray scale quality that I experience like the shades of white to gray seen in a cumulus cloud as it passes in front of the sun on a hot day. That shadowy gray is built on Isos’s woody base and leans towards a balanced blend of juniper, cedar and vetiver as its dominant accord. Its pleasantly rough edge comes from pepper and clove which are well blended with the base.

Now, after mining Isos for all those attributes we come to the issue of cost: 95€/$130. If you decide to try Isos and find you like the effects I’ve described -but are allergic to the price- I would suggest trying Eau Profonde by Thirdman. It's a cologne with an unusually deep base that is less expensive and has a similar gray scale cooling sensation of clouds passing in front of the sun.
