Amour Indeed!...
Amour de Palazzo opens with a slightly sweet clove, aromatic ginger, cinnamon-like nutmeg and gentle pink pepper quartet. Moving to the early heart, the spice quartet remains, now in support of a leathery labdanum and deep patchouli duo that takes the fore, with an emerging incense-like cedar as key co-star. During the late dry-down the spice and labdanum vacate while the cedar remains, eschewing its incense-like facet as it joins natural woody papyrus in support of the emerging modestly sweet amber and slightly animalic musk focal base note pair through the finish. Projection is average, but longevity outstanding at well over 15 hours on skin.

Amour de Palazzo is a bit of a dark horse. One can immediately tell it smells exceptional from the get-go, but it appears more simplistic in structure and progression than it really is. It took a few wearings to really "crack the code" so to speak, but once one begins to notice the subtle shifts in its apparent linear progression you can't miss them going forward, and the perfume's charms become all the more apparent. The first thing one notices on application is the perfumer's deft use of mixing several spices that complement each other perfectly with just a taste of the leathery incense heart accord to come. Speaking of that leathery, woody incense, it really represents the soul of Amour de Palazzo, and to say it smells sublime is an understatement. The cedar and labdanum really drive the heart accord, but aromatic earthy patchouli really holds the two together. Then seamlessly and frequently unnoticed, the composition shifts to the fine amber, wood and musk laden late dry-down that smells completely natural. It goes without saying I am a big fan of Amour de Palazzo, but the highest compliment I can give is despite its relatively lofty price tag; I reached for my wallet and bought a bottle for my collection. The bottom line is the $260 per 50ml bottle Amour de Palazzo appears as an excellent but linear woody incense composition on first glance, but there is much more than meets the eye (or nose, if you will) to this "excellent" to "outstanding" 4 to 4.5 stars out of 5 rated composition and it is all good.
