Anime Sante by Maria Candida Gentile
Judging by its name, I expected “Anime Sante” (or Holy Souls) to be a perfume composed around the note of frankincense. This in itself would be a very gratifying idea to me as Maria Candida Gentile surely knows how to incorporate the note effectively into her creations without making it smell too churchy or overwhelming. “Sideris”, “Exultat” or “Gershwin” exemplify not only the perfumer’s technical expertise, but also her artistic sensitivities. Imagine my surprise then when I first smelt “Anime Sante” and detected no trace of frankincense whatsoever. Instead, its head is dominated by a sweet flowery aroma of frangipani, so sweet in fact that at times it reminds me of the smell of pink bubble gum. To my relief, however, this phase lasts only for a couple of minutes. Although the sweetness never recedes completely, it becomes less intense and more palatable in the heart where a combination of melon and almond milk adds a gourmand accord to the scent. This accord permeates the drydown with the support of benzoin. Nevertheless, at this stage woody notes emerge as well, which tones the sweetness down even further.

“Anime Sante” will appeal to lovers of sweet, floral-gourmand fragrances. While that might sound like a description of some banal, uninspiring product, fear not. In Ms Candida Gentile’s capable hands, it turns into a lovely scent. Well, I guess the lady holds the title of a master perfumer for a reason.

All Souls' Day
Uncommented fragrances No. 140

A fragrance is called Holy Souls, comes to the market on All Saints' Day or All Souls' Day and you dare to make a small blind purchase if you like to enter a church. At Maria Candida Gentile, which I consider to be one of the most interesting perfume manufacturers, there are small, handy and very decorative 15 ml bottles that can be purchased at acceptable prices. The service includes the quite expensive, but nevertheless very fast express shipping service from Italy to Germany, so that you have the fragrance in front of you in a very short time.

Since today is the catholic holiday of All Souls' Day and it fits perfectly to the name of the fragrance, I dare to comment the first time on this unique fragrance. Although one could imagine Anime Sante to be somewhat sweet on the basis of the above ingredients, I am a little disappointed in the end that it came exactly as I feared or expected. The almond milk is probably responsible for the fact that the fragrance appears quite sweet in combination with mild resinous tones and a diffuse floral note. Basically, not much continues to happen. Shortly after spraying onto skin or paper strips, a milky, but also powdery sweet note develops that carries a hint of resin with it. If there is actually melon in it, it cannot assert itself against these accents: I don't smell them. Well, Frangipani did not belong to the light flower scents either and so such a milky sweet, powdery floral accord unfolds, which is reminiscent of a dessert (rice pudding with cinnamon) and is certainly better suited to women's skin. Perhaps the fragrance can offer a little comfort in mourning situations (All Souls' Day is the day of remembrance of the deceased), because its comforting sweet, gentle, almond-soft and cinnamon-fine note reminds of childhood days. All in all I still like the fragrance quite well. A test is recommended.
I wish you a quiet, comforting All Souls' Day!

Each creation from MCG is unique. This perfume is no less. Sickly sweet, synthetic warm toffee/almond feel. Great sillage, but I'll pass...
