Uplifting warm floral
Quit surprised at the low rating for this scent.
For me, it opens beautifully with a rich floral warmth that really sets the tone for the rest of the journey this scent takes you on.
It’s always a happy vibe, with a rich fullness that not all florals have.
Not a beast mode scent, but one which gently reminds you of it’s presence throughout the day when worn on the body under a shirt etc.

Absolutely gorgeous

The Divine Comedy - From Inferno to Paradise
Dante Alighieri wrote the Divina Commedia, the divine comedy, from 1307 to 3121, which is still considered a piece of world literature. The book describes Dante's journey from the dark horrors of the "Inferno", through the purifications of the "Purgatorio" to the light-filled beauty of the "Paradiso"
1472 is the earliest date in the "Histoires de Parfums" series and is all about the divine comedy, especially the contradictions described in the book - sin and virtue, faith and unbelief, good and evil. And exactly this tension, these contradictions and the struggle for the sovereign claim of life itself reflects this fragrance in fact very beautiful.

Dante's work is inherent in a deep numerical meaning, especially the number 3 seems to have done it to Dante at the time. So the whole work is divided into three parts (hell, purgatory, paradise) and especially hell is composed of 3x3 "circles". 33 years by the way also the age in which Jesus should have died...

A look at the notes in 1472 reveals amazing things - 3 phases (head, heart, base) with 3 scents each. Coincidence?

But how does this tightrope walk between heaven and hell, between light and dark smell now?

Exactly, namely incredibly exciting with an interplay of different notes. The fragrance starts floral, bright and life-affirming. Especially the "solar note" should evoke an uplifting, uplifting and sparkling mood, which together with Artemisia and Ylang-Ylang also succeeds relatively well. The fragrance journey thus starts not as with Dante with hell, but directly in paradise.

After a relatively short time, the very beautiful jasmine then comes to the fore and takes over the dominance for the time being. At this point, the fragrance then also briefly threatens to drift into a typical jasmine-tuberose summer fragrance. After another 15 minutes, however, purgatory breaks out in the form of cinnamon and incense, although I can only detect cinnamon minimally. This is where it gets a bit drier, darker and also more mysterious. The incense may be a portent of what then comes in the "hell" on one.

This awaits the inclined visitor then befitting with dark, woody-resinous and damp-happy notes, which were selected by the prince of darkness certainly himself. Dominant remain for me but jasmine and incense, which complement each other wonderfully. In the drydown, the fragrance is then seht dry and woody and reminds almost a little of Bois Marocain or Black Calamus .

Overall, the fragrance may not necessarily seem three-part, but it does go through a decent transformation. All notes are fighting for dominance on the skin and there is an interplay, as it could not have been described more beautifully by Dante. There's also no clear answer to the question of whether it's more of a masculine or feminine scent, as there's a battle of classic gendered notes here too. Is the fragrance at the beginning rather typically feminine, he turns in the further course then more and more into at least a unisex fragrance.

The durability in the fragrance is with 7-8 hours in the midfield, and also the sillage is noticeable perceptible, but holds back as far as possible.

I think the fragrance is really successful and with the accompanying story of Dante an all-round great thing. However, he does not reinvent the wheel and is also no masterpiece. Nevertheless - he is exciting and makes a really interesting transformation through. So if you want to accompany Dante on his way through hell to paradise (here, however, in reverse order), you should definitely try this fragrance. And the whole then best to read the "Divina Commedia".
