Frankincense pepper sorbet against summer flaccidity
Would you like to cool down? Here she comes. Pepper, clearly white, almost dazzling, hisses out like a rocket and opens the room wide. This is quickly fulfilled by a very light incense, very even, not smoking in threads. Fruit scattered on the ground, a few raspberries here, a little pomegranate there. Not gourmandig at all or even sweet, hardly perceptible. Also flowers only at the edge, expanding the space. White Room, clarifying and invigorating. Patchouli without hippie airs or cellar muff makes the fragrance lively and colourful, and cedar blends harmoniously into the ethereal mood.

Conclusion: Melograno & Incenso is a noble incense-pepper-cedar scent, nothing sweet fruity and sacred as the name pretends. Harmonious and dazzling it is, but not pleasing, slightly cutting, like garnished with some pimento alias carnation pepper. Exceptional!

All-season fragrance, good H/S, unisex. Recommendation for incense lovers who do not want to do without this fragrance in midsummer.

NB: My first Gandini, so I don't know if I should take a stand for this traditional Italian brand, which is almost unknown among perfumers, under the umbrella of a corporate group. The minimalist-functional container with inconspicuous label of this fragrance series makes no statement, which stimulates to buy, just like the factual titles. But the content convinced me, and two more fragrances have been ordered.

Tart, Dark, and Smart
I love these Gandini colognes. First, they are not really colognes. Nearly all of them have the longevity and sillage of at least an eau de toilette, which is a pleasant reversal of the becoming all-too-frequent scenario where one applies an eau de parfum and wonders why it disappears completely from the skin within two hours. These really do include a substantive base to which the higher-level notes are able to cling, with the result that I tend to smell them for many hours after application.

At the same time, the Gandini fragrances do not build up and overwhelm with reapplication, say, if one wishes to re-spritz on a hot day. This is no doubt in part because they are very natural-smelling, the farthest thing from a chemical soup. There are no unforeseen and unwanted science experiments going on between the various components. These fragrances also smell very "niche", if I may use that term approbatively. Although they appear to be produced by Eurocosmesi, a conglomerate which also covers Byblos, the quality of these creations is beyond dispute. My impression is that this old Italian house (1896) has some say in how its perfumes are made, even under the yoke of their corporate master.

On top of those virtues, all of the names of the fragrances I've tried have been perfectly accurate, which is something of a rarity, in my experience. I don't think that perfume houses need to--or even should--name their wares literally, but if they do, I don't think that I'm alone in expecting to smell what they indicate that I'm supposed to smell. In the case of Gandini, there seems to me to be zero chance of disappointment. They say that this fragrance contains pomegranate and incense notes, and it really does. Although other notes are listed on the bottle (mine is a tester), pomegranate and incense are the dominant scents, and they both smell how pomegranate and incense actually smell, which, in my estimation, is swell.

MELOGRANO ED INCENSO is tart and fruity, but also dark and woody, and the two dominant notes blend together in a unique and enticing way. Of the entire Gandini "cologne" line-up, this is to my nose the strongest, and I think that it is best suited for wintertime, given the rather heavy incense. But it really smells very nice, and I'm happy to have a bottle of this. I recommend MELOGRANO ED INCENSO to everyone who likes incense perfumes. This one adds a unique twist of pomegranate and is equally suitable for men or women.
