An epicurean ceremony
Omega is, teleologically speaking, the point at which the complete extinction of all life seems inevitable. Man moves into his own immovable reconstruction, which equates him with God. It is a bittersweet wait for redemption at the space-time endpoint, it is the ultimate future without a return to existence.

Owner of the Mendittorosa company, Stefania Squeglia presented a trilogy consisting of Alpha, Omega and ID in her 2012 Odori d'Anima collection. I chose the almost decadent creation Omega, which is so much more than just another leather gourmand fragrance.

The fragrance starts off warm, bittersweetly earthy, with soft toasted notes. There are also fine floral veils and a delicate sweetness perceptible. Many fragrances literally go through breathtaking stations and change directions. It is often the case that the end of certain compositions reveals little of the first impression of the fragrance. Omega is not like that. Omega is an end point. The fragrance is wonderfully finished from the beginning, penetrates all layers of the soul and pulsates softly. Warm. Familiar. Enveloping.

The woody-floral compounds, paired with a wafer-thin incense note, form the filigree framework for this extraordinary fragrance. Amélie Bourgeois has succeeded in harmonising a wonderful combination of a relatively dominant cumin note with a soft leather accord and sophisticated powdery sweetness of vanilla and iris. It is like an epicurean ceremony for my entire sensory system.

Stefania Squeglia's desire for soul scents does not quite work out, however. Omega is not a fragrance of the soul, it is the fragrance of human nudity. The composition smells of subtle human shells, which do not yet have the scent of life and experience, here they are without wounds and without scars. They are still new bodies in all their diversity, but without Photoshop and without taboos.

Omega remains innocently human until the end, infused with gently seductive gourmet notes. A fragrance for those special moments. If there is that one moment that your counterpart will remember when he took you in his arms, you should wear this fragrance. The aura of Omega is "something to be forever remembered for".

The fragrance possesses the longing of the song "Calling You" by Jevetta Steele. Omega is melancholic and yet life-affirming and sensual, like "The First Time", which is simultaneously a beginning but also inevitably an end.

With Omega, Mendittorosa and perfumer Amélie Bourgeois have created a true masterpiece. It is only to be hoped that the fragrance will remain in its original state for a long time to come, because this way Omega is perfect, from beginning to end

Synthetic Oud Reprise...
Omega opens with a brief vanilla sweetened jasmine floral before quickly moving to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart the jasmine all but fades, leaving the syrupy, moderately sweet vanilla remaining in support of an emerging strong synthetic smelling Oud wood with hints of cumin spice. During the late dry-down the synthetic woods vacate, leaving the vanilla now losing most of its earlier sweetness all by itself save faint hints of the jasmine remnants to finish off the composition's development. Projection is on the low side of average and longevity below average at about 5 hours on skin.

Omega started off pretty decent with its early jasmine presentation, but things went downhill fast when the perfumer rolled out the near certainly norlimbanol derived synthetic smelling Oud Wood. This stuff dominated the rest of the composition's facets as it almost always does, making for an unimpressive mid-section to the perfume's development. The late dry-down while more pleasant is near-equally unimpressive as it pretty much consists of relatively dry vanilla with a hint of jasmine. Like most of the Mendittorosa compositions (save the superb Le Mat) it just doesn't have the structure needed to hold things up, and the composition again folds like a house of cards, providing terrible performance metrics, especially considering this is supposed to be an extrait concentration. The bottom line is the 185 Euro per 100ml bottle Omega is a bit of a synthetic smelling mess, earning a "below average" 2 to 2.5 stars out of 5 and a mild avoid recommendation ignoring price. If price were taken into account the avoid recommendation would be much stronger.
