A Celery Perfume!
A fragrant walk over a Florentine market place – this is the story behind Gli Odori, the best fragrance of the Odori line. It is hard to believe that one could wear a perfume which smells like the taste of a vegetable soup, however, it works!

The core of this composition is a combination of very distinct kitchen herbs and vegetables: celery leaf is dominating this accord but I also get impressions of lovage and fennel. The rest of the herbs mentioned in the pyramid does not stand out. The herbs are combined with a juicy and appetizing lemon in the top notes, and this gives Gli Odori a hearty, straightforward and optimistic appeal. There are two ingredients that transfer this hotchpotch into a serious perfume: a dirty and slightly sweaty spiciness which is usually provided by cumin (not listed), and decent warm woody notes in the base.

Gli Odori is as outstanding and spectacular as a celery perfume could be, yet, it is fine and elegant as well. For me, it is hard to believe that this could have been done with such a distinct kitchen herb note, but here it is! It is simply brilliant.

Of course, the story around this fragrance limits its use a bit too much – Firenze is a beautiful town, but I do not travel there that often. Also, as a tourist you visit the churches, the Uffici and pay a visit to Michelangelo's David. Maybe you do not go to the back roads and hidden alleys, and not the markets where such a herb and vegetable bouquet might attack your nose. Gli Odori is Firenze as seen rather by the inhabitants, not the tourists. This market place is a crowded one where the scents of human sweat (cumin!) mix with the scent of the lemons, vegetables and the wooden crates – a sensual experience indeed. What is really admirable is how perfect these four aspects of Gli Odori are put together: lemon, celery, salty sweat (cumin) and woods. The only criticism I have is that Gli Odori is so much identical to the picture of the crowded Italian market place that it becomes difficult to wear at other occasions. I have to admit that I haven't worn it too often in spite of the fact that this fragrance is absolutely fantastic. It is just that the Florence market story does not appeal to me, and I haven't found another one for me so far.

I know that my description must evoke a lot of doubts about this fragrance. Yet, I think nobody should have to die without having smelled Gli Odori before. Go get your sample!
