GRANATO by Omnia Profumo
Omnia Profumo is a subsidiary of the Italian based jewelry company Omnia Gioielli. This youngster in the perfume industry seems to pay homage to precious metal and gem stones and is viewed as a nod to their parent jewelry business. Omnia Profumo currently has two lines in the fragrance repertoire, "Metal Parfume" and "Stone Parfume". Granato is one of eight in the "Stone Perfume" series of fragrances. The inspiration for Granato is based on the semi-precious gemstone, garnet. In nature, garnet comes in many unexpected colors from the familiar classic red to every other color imaginable. Granato's personality needed to reflect the garnet stones' unexpected characteristics. My initial exposure to this fragrance left me mesmerized and stupefied all at the same time.

The opening of Granato is a bit perplexing and somewhat unanticipated. It doesn't lead with the classic citrus spritzer we have become accustomed to in many Italian perfumes and colognes. The experience is akin to an arid Italian countryside dotted with fragrant thyme. Simultaneously, you experience the suggestion of roses as their scent succumbs to the exhaustion of the midday sun. Granato's heart is composed of much more outstandingly fragrant flora such as hawthorn, lilac, geranium and gardenia. These complex florals mingle with a layered spicy accord which includes nutmeg, cardamom, cinnamon, anise and sweet patchouli. This concoction adds interest and volume to an otherwise inherently predictable partnership. A deep sturdy woody base of cedar and sandalwood makes resinous suggestions, but they are kept light in nature. It is wise not to overpower a floral array such as this one to keep the fragrance a conventional Oriental. A modest hand of clean and green is given to Granato with the use of white musk and vetiver. A delicate vanilla sweetness is present and is always welcome in supporting a dry woody base.

There's not much to complain about here. The most unusual experience with Granato is the ever changing character this fragrance possesses. As Granato develops, it takes you on a floral journey that also seems to be accompanied by a bit of resinous woods and just a hint of sweetness. From one minute to the next, Granato changes and continues to present many different floral facets. It's as if this fragrance is trying to find you your zen flower, and just when you think, "that's it," it changes again and presents a new one to you. I find this evasive maneuver to be most cunning and enviable part of it Granato's character.

I have read many impressions of Granato by Omnia Profumo lately. Let's keep in mind that we are discussing perfume. Not every perfume performs well or in the same way on everyone's skin. I am confused by some of the negative opinions this fragrance engenders among fragrance enthusiasts. With all of the absolutely horrendous perfumes on the market today, an understated gem like Granato is a breath of fresh air in an otherwise overwrought synthetic perfume wasteland. I don't think that Granato will overthrow any throne in the perfume empire, but it does deserve a bit of respect for what it brings. The combination of scents is surprising and interesting. The price is reasonable and the longevity is fantastic. The perfume seems to be aimed at women, but because of the sturdy woody base and the spicy floral composition, this plays as a modern masculine Oriental as well.
