A VenDetTa On The Wearer...
Ven goes on with bitter cherry before quickly transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart a natural smelling, pungent cumin spice emerges and dominates , faintly supported by dry rum and leathery animalic castoreum rising from the base. During the late dry-down the perfume softens and smooths out, as a relatively dry vanilla and sandalwood tandem joins the remnants of the now diminished cumin and castoreum through the lengthy finish. Projection is below average and longevity excellent at well over 12 hours on skin.

I have been sampling the VenDetTa trio of scents in random order recently, and this is the last of the three. My reviews of the other two have been anything but positive, and sadly "Ven" is by far the worst of the lot. It is no secret that I am no fan of cumin, and Ven is heavily cumin dominant in the key heart phase particularly. To the perfumer's credit, this cumin is not the typical "BO" presentation of the spice, but rather an extremely realistic culinary presentation (and it would not surprise me in the least if the perfume is loaded with the real stuff). When you add in the leathery, almost smoky castoreum to the mix, this combination is a pretty hardcore tough one to endure. Only in the late dry-down is the wearer released from the perfume's torture by culinary herb, as its woody-vanilla softened late dry-down takes a lot of the earlier "bite" away. There really isn't much positive I can say about Ven, except that luckily it is not a good projector. My guess is if someone *could* smell the perfume on you, they would give you a dirty look and steer well-clear. In truth, I believe the VenDetTa trio are each only partial perfume journeys, meant to be worn in various degrees together. Personally I would advise against investing in three partial perfumes that are independently horrible, only to yield one wearable one by their combination, in favor of purchasing any number of the *far* superior smelling O'driu perfumes that can be proudly worn independently. The bottom line is the apparently discontinued $150 Euros per 50ml bottle Ven appears to only be a partially finished perfume, requiring its other disappointing siblings to be remotely wearable, earning it a "horrific" to "very poor" 1 to 1.5 stars out of 5 rating and a "run away as fast as you can" avoid recommendation to all. The only VenDetTa must be on the prospective purchaser with this terrible trio from O'driu!

Medicinal & spicy animalic cherry liquor
LOVE It! For me another masterpiece by o'driu. Weird, yes... Strong, also... Medicinal, too... But the mix is nice and has a very good quality. This scent has some similarities with Eva Kant and Perry, with a sweet/balsámic/animalic background and with the fruity vibe of medicinal cherries. This gives something similar to the effect of the strawberry un ta, which is weird but pleasant. The cumin is Aldo very noticeable.
The performance is good. It has the performance you expect from an extrait, but all the Angelo oraxio pregonó perfumes i have tried have this quality. Not for everyday use, not for summer but weareable un special ocasiones. A beast for nightout although is not specially sexy. I think can be unisex but i imaginé It better on men than on women.
