Do you remember? It wasn't really that inviting when we had to find an apartment for our holiday in 2017. It was cheap and when we arrived, we also knew why that was so. We couldn't expect great things. A worn out room, the floor in the hallways dirty and already quite old and often the garbage was left for days until it was picked up. But we had what we needed to get away from the stress of everyday life. The pool was big. And really inviting. Even if it was a bit heavily chlorinated. From the main road where the hotel was located, one could constantly notice the exhaust fumes, but at the same time also the always very fine whiff of sweet pastries from the nearby pasteleria, specially in the morning. Even if not everything was perfect, this week in the hot August at that time did us good. And we found it in the end probably not so bad, because after the renovation we have 2019 immediately again a look at the plant, which now shines in new splendor, but at the same time still seems a little sparse. Maybe we'll come back again sometime?

Pathétique by O'Driu is a guarantee for mental cinema. A special fragrance, which, I look at the impressions here so, triggers different associations everywhere. For me, it's this. This somewhat shabby apartment building in Ibiza. The scent starts sweet at first with the truffle notes. But I also think I detect the amyris I like to sniff here. Really, the scent doesn't seem burnt to me. Nor does it seem sacral. There's something flickering, yes, but more in the background and it can't really be characterized. Is it a coal fire? Is it simply car exhaust? Fascinating how the incense is used here. What triggers this heavily chlorinated note for me keeps me guessing. Perhaps the juniper with the pepper? It's this note that makes the scent only partially wearable for me, because it makes me think a bit of a freshly chlorinated bathroom, as is common in southern countries, unfortunately. The pleasant sweetness, however, persists, does not let itself be crushed by chlorine and consorts and continues to provide a smile. It's fun. Definitely. I will probably not need him rather.

Thank you Basti for this exciting fragrance cinema.

the dark sound
It is true that Angelo Orazio Pregoni is a very special scent artist.
But with "Pathétique", his last creation for the house of O'Driù, he has succeeded in creating a very special masterpiece: truly a farewell symphony!

I too first thought of Tchaikovsky's Sixth Symphony, which bears this subtitle.
What was already into him secret: Tchaikovsky would have foreseen his, only nine days after the premiere occurred death and much more.
In the process, one often forgets, despite all the heaviness, the broad lyrical secondary theme complex already sounding shortly after the introduction, which leads into a waltz in 5/4 time.
That the following march would one day serve as incidental music for the Smurfs, no one could have guessed, and many serious music lovers are certainly not thrilled about it.
But that changes nothing: When the little blue guys run away from the evil Gargamel, Tchaikovsky's music sounds; peppy and makes them legs!

Pregoni's "Pathétique" is made up of fragrant tones, almost minor-keyed and yet enchantingly interspersed with the reflex of light.
So densely woven does this composition seem, that the scent course vibrates slightly.
After passing through a brief area of bright bergamot and grass notes, we enter a magical forest; an enchanted world of dark browns and greens.
Vetiver, juniper and various resins waft around us in rich waves of fragrance; mosses cushion every step.
Black pepper and incense lead us past a nearly extinguished pile: the charred wood is still fragrant, and these swathes combine extremely harmoniously with the previous components of this amazing creation.
A sudden glow: The pleasantly tart mimosa aroma adds unexpected accents; a hint of the white big-headed jasmine lingers in the heavy balsamic air.
Creamy warm vanilla interweaves the yet quite unusually coordinated fragrances before "Pathétique" strives towards a grand finale:
Black truffles, earthy and luxurious, emerge from the dark, powerful fragrance creation like its substantial soil and let their lovers sigh enthusiastically: what a delicate fragrance!!

O'Driù's "Pathétique" is an extraordinary work of perfumed art; profound, vibrant with life and full of mystery.
Faithful over many hours, with ever-evolving fragrance facets, it does, however, expect a willingness to surrender, to wonder.
Who knows what wonders are still hidden in this dark beauty.
It is worth it to discover them!

Only the name is pathetique
It is called patwthiqie but for me this is a wonderful perfume. O'driu is becoming one of my favourite brands and Angelo Orazio pregoni one of the BEST perfumists for me. This is probably one of odriu's perfumes that the less fit with me. I LOVE the banana&coffee os italian censored, the lemon cake un Eva Kant or the balsámic tangerine un cin4. In pathetique we can find a drier perfume with the juniper and the Green vine of the vetiver and the Moss. But at the same time It shares with the other perfumes of the perfumist s nice balsámic background, un this case with the incense as main ingredient. Therefore this is an incense-juniper perfume but under the o'driu character. It makes me think of some perfumes by amouage.

The performance, as most perfumes of the mrand that i have tried, is just amazing. The longevity is great, the sillage is moderate but enough and noticeable for a long time and the quality of the ingredients is very good.

Pathetique is unisex and for me good for an everyday use under cold weather.

Warm sunshine on skin
You might be a bee. This whisks you straight into a field on a humid sunny day, your proboscis is buried deep into the centre of a honeyed, slightly cloying flower. Green grasses and fresh air rustle about the head but the probe is still deep in the liquid honey. The probe is gently removed from the centre and the labdanum, mimosa floral recedes a little, with powdery irissy rosy talcum notes all around in the air. Soft benzoin, coconut and creamy sandalwood emerge.

This is like a coconut, sandal, floral, powdery, body cream smeared onto slightly hot skin, made peppery from the sun. The languid arm you are sniffing is pushed into the grassy soil where a slightly vegetal aromatic earthy note resides but ever so faintly.

Cute, sweet, earthy and powdery. Like a kiddies talc on a suntanned skin. Artisanal, sweet and safe. Not for a sophisticated evening out but maybe to sniff whilst snuggling up to someone, or to wear on a beach. It reminds me of a powdery Ambre Soltan slightly. Clean and safe, sweet, ambery floral, creamy sandalwood that sits close to skin.

Initially bright spicy-earthy, a slightly smoky, yet creamy/sweet floral-resinous Winter fragrance, balanced by a solid earthy-woody base.
