"Det"termined To Fail...
Det (part two of the three part VenDetTa perfume trio released by O'driu) is a tough one to break down into individual notes, so I will skip the normal objective note breakdown and move directly to my subjective impressions. Projection is average and longevity outstanding at around 24 hours on skin.

While quite the personality, Angelo Orazio Pregoni has more than demonstrated that when he puts his mind to it, he is a perfumer of inordinate talent with the capability to create genre changing accords and perfumes in general. Alas, his works while almost always revealing an underlying story beyond just the perfume itself can be rather hit and miss, and the VenDetTa trilogy is a major example of the latter.

In the case of this review, we have the second part to the trilogy, "Det." Det starts out with a benzoin infused relatively sweet odd smelling red berry accord, quickly morphing into a dry cedar woody heart, with the sweetened red berries remaining in support, as well as to a minor degree the O'driu trademark culinary aromatic herbs that hang well in the background, adding just enough character that the perfume could not be mistaken for anything but one from Pregoni's Odriu. The late dry-down is a much more normal affair, with a slightly powdery vanilla-woody focus, providing relief from the oddly sweet red berries that mar the open and heart phases as they vacate to give the wearer a break. It is no secret that this writer is not a fan of overly sweet compositions, and the sweetness here coupled with the red berries and dry wood just doesn't work well at all. I do like the highly tenacious late dry-down once the berries and sweetness leave, but when one really thinks about it, vanilla woody finishes have been done many, many times just as well - it is the earlier components that are the innovative aspects, and they fail. The bottom line is the 150 Euro per 50ml bottle Det has some of the trademark Pregoni innovative DNA within, but in this case innovation doesn't mean well-done, with this disappointing outing earning a "poor" 2 stars out of 5 rating and a strong avoid recommendation to all.
