If one translates the melodious Invidia from Italian, one encounters the negatively preoccupied word envy. One wonders why envy - the germinating seed of envy, the destructive - was used as the name for a perfume. And above all, it allows for the question of what envy smells like. I can't imagine it, it must have a lot to do with hormones.
"Invidia" is a calm and balanced perfume. I mainly perceive a dark sandalwood note in it that embeds the scent of vanilla orchids and cloves. The other floral notes are denied my perception. At first the composition smells somewhat bulky, acidic and at the same time sweet, but without the heaviness of the caramel. At times the clove appears a little sweaty, a feeling that does not spread suspiciously. "Indvidia" gives a very soft impression of tobacco or leather after hours of wearing. Personally, I find the tobacco more concise and the sweet notes generally as declining.
"Invidia" smells good and is of high quality. However, I have the feeling that I'm wearing a perfume with base notes. The result is that I find the fragrance somewhat single-track, would like to have more contrasts set by the flowers and from the beginning less sweetness. The minimum shelf life is twelve hours and I consider the Sillage to be strong
