Me and Iddu
My second review from the house of Mendittorosa, this time from the Odori d'Anima line.
Id was inspire by the volcano on the island of Stromboli north of Sicily. Thank you for watching and I hope you enjoy the review.

What does the volcanic island of Stromboli smell like?
Ravensara + birch oil + divine jasmine + fine cigarette tobacco smoke = amazingly airy aromatherapy à la original carbon scent NU by YSL + a few drops of opium intertwined with Youth Dew. True artistic perfume from the volcano Stromboli, including "the bottle" in a solid wooden box made to measure. When it's very hot, Id smells of absolutely divine fine tobacco à la "papier d'Arménie". When the weather is cold, you can clearly feel absolutely divine tobacco and cinnamon with mixed in jasmine flowers from Darjeeling tea.

Somehow disillusioned
Too bad. The background for the name "Id" will probably not be known to anyone - I wouldn't have thought of the name of a volcano. Instead, I automatically have to think of the Arabic word for "hand" and the oriental scents do read. However, the test of Id leaves me quite disappointed, because I can't really speak of a particularly intense Oriental or even Oud here.

The top note seems a bit diffuse to me because it is quite bright - almost fresh - and medicinal. The floral notes are never really superficial, but probably give Id exactly these qualities, in contrast to the spicy and resinous notes. I'm most likely to suspect jasmine and violets. What stands out the most, however, is the cinnamon, which I actually like very much, but this combination at the beginning seems to me to be rather inconsistent. Labdanum is later added noticeably and provides at least a hint of darker mood. What surprises me, however, is the absence of the oud and the extremely restrained woods. And so the slightly balsamic, only slightly sweetened cinnamon cloud wafts further ahead. Perhaps musk contributes to the somewhat clean impression of the fragrance. Not much more happens on my skin.

In my opinion, expectation and reality are very far apart here. Id is not only different and more discreet than hoped for, but also by far not as exciting and balanced as the scents read.

A meditation on a lava stone.
Wearing Id by Mendittorosa is like following a guided meditation where my olfactory impression of the scent replicates the story behind the perfume.

Charcoal darkness of warm porous lava stone, soothing sound of sea lapping against the rocks, caressing warmth of the midday sun weakened by the clouds and a lot of space filled with the calming loneliness. A picture drawn without colors but rather with contrasts and slight tints added to the greyscale.

A perfect meditation place where the metallic mineral odor of lava stone surface mixes with the smell of salt from drying sea drops.

Being there makes me aware about the dark layers slowly flowing under the surface of my subconsciousness. They are so close, I can almost touch them. So close, the feeling that reminds me of the song So Close by Ólafur Arnalds.

In Id I can barely recognize the components it's made of. Well, I can smell labdanum, cinnamon and the metalic oud aspect the most, but inside this scent they are playing the roles and each of them lends its aspects into the total picture which is different than just a sum of the components.

Immediate Satisfaction, Left Wanting...
Id opens with slightly muted sweetened cinnamon with a jasmine floral undertone before quickly moving to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart the cinnamon gains strength, becoming more vociferous as time passes with the jasmine remaining in support, adding in hints of ginger and deep clove spice infused relatively sweet vague woods into the mix. During the late dry-down the cinnamon and clove recede, leaving their remnants to join faint hints of slightly peppery labdanum forming the relatively transparent base. Projection is on the low side of average, as is longevity at about 6-7 hours on skin.

Id represents yet another outing by Mendittorosa where the composition starts off relatively impressive, this time with a fine cinnamon, jasmine and clove trio before losing ground considerably in the late dry-down. Speaking of the late dry-down, it almost isn't there. The composition is near baseless, with the primary notes and accords falling apart in relatively short order. Considering the composition is listed on the company web site as being an extrait, the relatively shoddy performance of now two compositions in a row from the house is starting to show a disturbing trend. Also somewhat troubling is the lack of consistency in the company's product description on its web site to the actual product packaging. The descriptions all say "extrait", but the bottles all say "Eau de Parfum"... Hmm... In truth, the two compositions that have received complete wearings on skin so far perform even worse than either classification, so it is difficult to know what to believe. Oh well, at the end of the day, Id is another "good but not great" release from Mendittorosa that is pleasant enough but needs some more work on its base and distinctiveness. The bottom line is the 185 Euro per 100ml bottle Id seems highly top-loaded, satisfying early but ultimately leaving one wanting, earning a "good" 3 stars out of 5 rating and a recommendation with some reservation.

It's like meditating on a warm porous black lava stone listening to the soothing sound of the sea, a mix of mineral smell of stone and salt
