Lust and frustration in the 13th century
The beautiful Francesca is waiting for Paolo in her boudoir. She made herself up for him carefully but inconspicuously. She powdered her face because pallor is distinguished. She put on red lipstick. She stuck bags of spices in her dress. She has put a wreath of braided carnations on her head. It smells spicy, sweet, powdery and flowery. She looks young and innocent, although she is almost 30 years old. Through the small pointed arched window a beam of light falls on Francesca, she seems to shine gently from the inside out. There's a soft knock on the secret door to the hall outside. The agreed sign. Paolo's here.

Francesca da Rimini (1255-1285) was married for political reasons to the disabled Giovanni Malatesta (died 1305). I don't know how handicapped Giovanni was, but since he intervened quite actively in the story, it couldn't have been too bad. He may have limped. Francesca had an affair with Paolo Malatesta (1246-1285), one of the two brothers of Giovanni. Probably half the city knew before Giovanni surprised and killed them in 1285. The beginning of a family feud and fabric for dramas, operas, paintings and sculptures. Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) was a contemporary and had known Francesca and Paolo. In his "Divine Comedy" (1307-1321) he wrote about the lovers.

"And she to me: 'Who knows a greater suffering,
When who in the misery of beautiful time remembers?"

He wrote that they were in hell because they had experienced beautiful times. Thus he depicted her in contrast to his own person and his unfulfilled love for Beatrice Portinari (1265-1290). Dante never had anything with Beatrice. Both were married to other people. I'm thinking that Dante was a little jealous. Of course, the affair killed the two lovers (and later there was a revenge action by a son of Paolo). But they had been happy before. Dante may never have been happy. What if there's no hell? Hell, it's the others. Or hell you can be to yourself. Beatrice died as early as 1290. Was it perhaps better for Dante to invent a reason why it would have taken him to hell if he had confessed his love to Beatrice? I don't agree with Dante on that one. Beautiful memories are an excellent thing in old age.

"Fugit Amor" is a sculpture by Auguste Rodin, which he designed in 1885 and produced between 1886 and 1887. She shows Francesca with her lover and brother-in-law Paolo as characters in Dante's work. They're naked. Francesca tries to wind herself out of Paolo's arms. The scent Fugit Amor is inspired by Rodin's sculpture.

I like the perfume Fugit Amor very much. Maybe I'm too old for this, but I'm just wearing it anyway. The fragrance is by no means close to the skin, but this is how family tester M feels. I'm assuming there's perfume in there that not everyone can smell equally good. We Yatagan in his statement already werwahnte, it is perhaps such a woman thing..

You can wear Fugit Amor all year round and at any occasion, except for sports. If Paolo had at least been more athletic, he would have been able to defend himself against Giovanni. If Francesca had been more athletic, she could have run out and screamed for help. (Which admittedly wouldn't have helped her as an adulteress in the 13th century.) The fragrance lasts quite well, I can't deliver exact times yet. Sillage varies according to the nose. Fugit Amor is more Francesca than Paolo. For me it's a very pleasant scent of well-being. As you know, I am not the right contact person for the question whether a fragrance is sexy or not. So you'd have to figure that out for yourself.
