A little of everything
On the wall behind the Armani stand in the Alsterhaus hangs a large poster advertising 'Orangerie Venise'. Of course, I had to bring a little sample with me. Most of the newer Privés I found only moderately successful and an orange scent is perhaps not first choice anyway to expect a more courageous litter à la 'Myrrhe Imperiale' or 'Pierre de Lune'. But at least 'Orangerie Venise' allegedly (see above) comes from the pen of Dominique Ropion. One can be really curious - after all the master for Mr. Malle has casually de-dusted one or the other idea of old school.

How is he now, the new noble Armani?

In the beginning there is a lot going on in terms of the relevant fruit: Simple-Orangiges, "nimm2"-Neroli, Grün-Saures, Zesten-Öliges. For the claimed pepper I need some imagination; rather woody than sharp I find it then. The young man from the Armani bar brought, deviating from the data here, still Vetiver into the game. This fits, although (temporarily) as a means, not as an end, it hardly leaves the field of speculation in the first few hours.

Apropos purpose - that brings us to the actual topic: What about the freshness extension today? I smell something of everything, so to speak. First and foremost, Neroli should be mentioned as a potent fighter for such things; to be smelled, for example, in 'Puro Neroli' by Officina delle Essenze. For the herbaceous and spicy part, petitgrain leaf green and shrub soon join in, at first very gently, already noticeable after one hour.

For a while I also rummaged about something tomatoy until I finally suspected that the watery freshness chemistry (another one ticked off) had played a trick on me in combination with the acid. Happens to me sometimes; cf. z. B. Harry Lehmanns 'Boston', where I had speculated about tomato (leaf) at that time.

Well, and vetiver. In front only support, it develops its own profile in the course of the day. Partly quantitative, that is to say simply relative due to the regression of the other ingredients. But it also increases in content and even shows what is slightly acidic and smoky, as it usually indicates the -yl acetate.

A reference to Privé's colleague 'Vetiver d'Hiver' is now almost inevitable. Common to both is the aura that floats above the fragrance. That doesn't mean anything, it's often similar in chemical-assisted newborns of this type. It is more remarkable that the candidate in question offers a greater presence in terms of sweet grass (or its derivation) than the sibling scent that carries the ingredient in its name. The Vetiver is accompanied by Zestigen all the way to the back today; that would be number five on our freshness extension list. Occasionally a rest jumps out from time to time nimm2.

Conclusion: Certainly no milestone, neither for Mr. Armani nor for Mr. Ropion. Nevertheless a good fragrance, which gives me more (reasonable aromas until the end) or less (no DIY store) in the right places than others from this group. With the price called for it (there at the stand dawdling 160 Euronen per 100ml) I can expect however probably that. What is annoying is that you have to bathe in the stuff to generate an appealing sillage.
