That arouses your greed
Caldo Gourmand - the hot gourmand. What are they thinking at the Officina delle Essenze when they give their perfume such a name? Right. You probably know enough people like me who freak out when they smell a mixture like this. You want to rub your body completely with it or better pour the whole bottle into yourself, that's how delicious it smells here. If it says in the pyramid: vanilla and caramel, then that's exactly what's being tasted here, and everyone who can only call himself halfway sweet-billed is freaking out at this smell: sweet, soft, gentle, caramel... In seconds Caldo Gourmand awakens your greed, awakens the sweet-hungry animal inside you and makes you blow up the walls if a load of the most delicious caramel chocolates doesn't appear immediately in front of you. Which is even more wonderful: After some time your sweetness is more or less controllable, you are satisfied with the fragrance, and quite a while later the fragrance also comes to terms with the fact that you have come to terms with it, and becomes softer and slightly tart, musk and wood knocking very, very softly. This fragrance is really beautiful, really well done, a great gourmand, which is perhaps even better for autumn than for winter. It is wonderfully balanced, does not get lost in sweet dreams, but is tamed by the base notes. I don't smell coconut, though, or apple. In the sweet area I only perceive vanilla and caramel. Incidentally, the bottle is beautifully simple, very elegant, the cuboid lies heavy in the hand and the brass plaque - like the heavy, golden packaging - gives it a noble appearance. What a wonderful gourmand pleasure!
