Pregoni's Unique and Outstanding Take On Vetiver...
Supercilium goes on with a somewhat toned down presentation of the trademark O'driu house signature of culinary herbs and spice while adding a hint of fiery chile pepper (capsicum) into the mix. Underneath the herbs and spice lies very sharp woody vetiver that slowly emerges. During the early heart phase the spices slightly recede as the sharp vetiver takes the fore with warmth from the capsicum playing co-star with traces of lemongrass adding further support. As Supercilium enters the final dry-down, the vetiver remains in full force, while the spice and capsicum recede to allow a relatively dry real sandalwood note from the base to reveal itself, meshing with the vetiver and lemongrass to finish off the scent as the overall accord fades very slowly. Projection is very good and longevity is truly exceptional at over 24 hours on skin (even more-so as this is a 100% natural composition).

Vetiver is one of my favorite notes, but I really did not know what to expect with Supercilium (and its sister scent Subcilium) that O'driu bills as a "Vetyver Experience," as the note has been used just about every which way (or so I thought). I should have known that a super-talented nose like Angelo Orazio Pregoni would not be satisfied with releasing a "me too" type of vetiver scent, and certainly Supercilium is anything but. Sure, there are aspects of Supercilium that smell similar to many other O'driu concoctions with its trademark house blend of herbs that you find in one way or another in most of their compositions, but the addition of the sharp woody vetiver into the mix as the star while toning down the herbal mix just a hair a la their own Linfedele Haiku is truly something special. The vetiver is aromatic and almost woody in its nature, while the supporting lemongrass gives it a crucial slightly citric element; the notes of the overall accord blending *perfectly*. As Supercilium dries down and the sandalwood emerges, the final piece of the puzzle is unveiled as I detect just the faintest hint of sweetness late (though the scent is far from sweet on the whole). I can honestly say that Supercilium is a complete success and one of the best fragrances O'driu has released to date, taking the starring note into virgin territory. The fragrance is only available as a 44 piece limited edition and is very expensive in relative terms at 270 euros per 50ml bottle, but the amazing skill and innovation along with the resulting outstanding composition and stunning performance is very worthy of its lofty price tag and I look forward to adding it to my collection tout suite (though my wallet does not share the enthusiasm). Supercilium earns an extremely enthusiastic "Top 10" caliber rating of 4.5+ stars out of 5.
