Place of permitted pleasures
In the meantime, very much that promises pleasure and can give us pleasure, has been labeled "Questionable". Let's just look around:
Coffee: for heaven's sake! Not good for the heart or stomach; even the formerly "stomach-friendly" must now be called "people-friendly."
Cocoa: way too fatty! "Just look at the fat bubbles floating on the milk! You want to do that to yourself? Think of your cholesterol levels!"
Tobacco: unhealthy in any form! The days of enjoying a cigarette after a good meal are over - banished from our lives; indulgent eating has long been pilloried anyway!
Banana: formerly a fast, good in between to eat energy donor, today must first present a complete resume with "where from" and "where to", before alone the bowl may be torn open!
This constantly red shining sign "caution" is annoying and considerably reduces the joy of life.
Makes us become intolerant!

What a joy, therefore, to enter the land of "Italian Censored/Italian Angel": here you will find everything that is almost on the index.
A balanced whole of the most diverse fragrances appears here:
Orange and lemon trees guard the entrance to the small café; its roughcast walls are richly overgrown with jasmine and climbing roses.
At flowering time, summery flowery fresh scents float around this small building and the few tables in front of the door are occupied by fragrance connoisseurs. All too soon they do not get up again.
Who enters the small room with the large studio-like window front, marvels: dreamy wafts of fragrance make the mouth water and a view of a light-flooded green Tuscan landscape enchants.
Delicacies made of chocolate, thickly dusted with rust-brown cocoa or decorated with creamy white cream, and intoxicatingly fragrant, make the choice difficult.
Cupcakes and cakes made of and with banana in many varieties, banana milk and ice cream are part of the permanent program. So is the fat perennial with those crooked yellow fruits hanging from the ceiling above the gleaming counter.
The gleaming chrome espresso machine gurgles quietly to itself: in a moment it will spit out one of its many coffee delicacies, hissing.
From one of the back rooms, where a small private roastery is located, strange, fascinating wafts of scent drift: mysterious and oily, arousing curiosity - but just behind the locked door!
Almost as a consolation for the fact that this "forbidden land" may not be entered, the view falls on an open door in the large glass front: nature behind it invites you to take a detour.
Heavy earthy vetiver scents, exuding light moisture despite the heat, and a long border of richly flowering tobacco plants are found there.
Sun-warmed tobacco, with not only the blossoms but also the softly rustling foliage already smelling aromatic.
What fragrant spectacle may offer itself to the senses here only in the evening, when the then still warm earth releases its own heavy aromas.

How beautiful it is at the "Italian Angel":
An entryway that beckons with citrus and wonderful floral scents; a main room filled with tempting treats that delight the stomach and soul; and an exit into the rich, earthy, humid outdoors with views of the endless beauty of the countryside!

Here it is possible to linger and the angel with the little white apron and the friendly smile invites with a charming gesture.
A few hours under clouds of fragrance, the enjoyment of which does not have to think about the already not too slim waist or the worried look of the doctor:
Oh, that's nice!!

Yatagan told me that O'Driù fragrances always took a little getting used to, because they were unusual.
"Italian Censored/Italian Angel" is an invitation to enjoy all that may have long been on the "almost forbidden" list.
Spicy, not overly sweet, and held in the earthy tones of Tuscany, I find this a feel-good scent that speaks to me!
"Italian Censored/Italian Angel" creates a voluminous, sensual and serene painting on the blank canvas of an average day: of rich color and fragrance notes that harmonize with each other to quietly brush the senses awake.
An exceptional fragrance delicacy worth discovering!

A Wonderful Journey...
Italian Angel opens with a warm ylang-ylang derived banana, with hints of natural citrus fruit and underlying dark chocolatey coffee before quickly transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart the banana and citrus vacate, leaving the dark chocolatey coffee remaining as star, but gradually folding just slightly sweet pipe tobacco into the mix with a subtle dulled rose floral undertone. During the late dry-down the perfume morphs into a relatively gentle woody vetiver affair, as the tobacco gradually recedes and finally vacates before the finish. Projection is average, but longevity is very good to excellent at just under 12 hours on skin.

I have had a sample of Italian Angel lying around for about five years now... I think the negative impression received when I tried the Ven-Det-Ta trio of duds from the house directly before it, made me question if the extremely talented Angelo Orazio Pregoni had finally "lost it," and resultantly I passed over trying the perfume back then. Now coming back to my sample all these years later, I confess I made a mistake. All the deficiencies I found in the "terrible trio" are avoided in Italian Angel. Instead, the perfume is not only quite wearable (something that O'driu, despite my love for the house is frequently lacking), but does a very good job of presenting the wearer with a true fragrance journey. The composition starts out with warm banana and citrus fruit, but then turns into an almost semi-gourmand with its chocolatey black coffee, then brings things back from gourmand territory by adding the natural smelling pipe tobacco sans the typical hyper-sweetness one frequently finds. By the time the wearer gets to the late dry-down, the perfume morphs yet again to focus on the woody facet of vetiver, while toning down the sharpness usually found. In short, I love it. The bottom line is the approximately $200 (160 Euros) per 50ml bottle Italian Angel is an "excellent" 4 stars out of 5 rated interesting and exciting perfume journey by Angelo Orazio Pregoni that is highly recommended to both classically structured perfume lovers, and fans of innovative perfume brands like Slumberhouse alike.

Fruity fresh vanilla scent
This perfume is a jewel for me! I LOVE It! The opening is very different and original with a prominent banana note, which is not easy yo find in other perfumes. After a while It becomes un a very mediterranean and fresh fragance but with heavy contrasts. The masculinity of the coffee and the tobacco, with the feminity of the rose and the Jasmine (very subtle), the sweetness of cocoa and banana (which decreases with the time) and the fresh and Green vibe which the citrus notes and the vetiver give yo the fragance. All this give yo the perfume a vibe similar to aventus by creed (i know are not similar perfumes but i find very similar behaviours on my skin). The performance is good and the perfume is very unisex. The opening is very original but the dry down is a bit more common, like other freshy fruity vanilla scents. Just un case i think this perfume is a must un my collection and one of my Next buyings (when i have saved money enough because It is not cheap). I have recived one decant so i dont know if this is one edt, edp or an extrait. I would ver for an edp according to his behaviours and performance but... Somebody knows what is It?

Loud and Proud
I admit that my relationship with indie brand O'DRIÙ has never been much explored due the strong emotions that its perfumer Angelo Orazio Pregoni awakens on me. There is something in his sense of humor that always irritated me deeply, with criticism of the fragrance marketing practices that seemed itself a marketing attempt to draw attention (as the invitation to put 1 drop of urine of the user in Peety, for example). However, changing the perspective, it is certain that the balance of players in a system require elements that escape the conventional and either staged or genuine Angelo makes this role and does it well. Also, it shows that he is able to have a more conventional appeal with creations as Italian Angel, where the peculiar seems to make room for something exotic but more direct in its approach.

It's interesting to me how you can fit the angels in different forms in Italian Angel and somehow it to me sums up one side of Angelo that do not interfere with the enjoyment of the fragrance. The perfume seeks to unite both the past and the present of Italian perfumery doing this by playing with stereotypes. The first stereotype that comes to mind regarding Italian Angel is that its beauty is not a bit discreet. It seems to me loud, big and sensual / sexual without being vulgar - something that fits very well in the stereotypical appearance.

The perfume embodies a very clear androgynous aspect, coeherent with the angels theme, working with the same presence and strength both floral, woody, citrus, spicy and fougeres elements. We are facing an Angel of the Baroque period, dramatic, decorative and lush, something that is not ashamed to exude opulence. This already evident to me in a saturation of a banana fruity aspect at the opening, something that seems to me to be a sweet aroma, a distortion of ylang ylang nuances that when played at full volume also makes me think to the metallic paint scent o that some fruity acetates seems to emanate. By contrast there is clearly a classic citrus Fougere accord, something that emphasizes more the presence of green and bitter side of rose and geranium idea. Tobacco appears between them, with its balsamic sweet site explored with a creamy vanillin aroma and a sensual and dense floral jasmine. Finally, we have coffee, vetiver (and for me something that says oud) bringing the scent to a more austere side, rough, a crisp woody and dry aroma that balances the carnal aspect of the idea.

Surely Italian Angel is not a perfume for those who like niceties - and as a good cliché would be strange if it were. He speaks to me because it seems to me a celebration of who I am with my Italian origins - something dramatic and verging on the theatrical. And maybe it is exactly this theatricality that at principle bothered me in Angelo just what I love here. A contradiction that I would not be ashamed to admit considering that the perfume in question is worthy.

Heavy banana opening turns into a fresh and sweet subtle mediterranean fragance which contrast tobacco and coffee with sweet and green notes
