The ruler's new vanilla clothes
"Empireo" sounds royal and hard, but is an extremely soft, almost melting myrrh vanilla flatterer. A dictatorship is in no case, rather a kingdom, in which milk and honey flow...

The Onyrico fragrances tested so far have been simply too good not to stay on the ball and pass "Empireo" without testing. And I like that, too. With air up. A viscous vanilla pulp, initially accompanied by lavender, later rather by light flowers, which goes down like oil. Vanilla can quickly smell cheap - never ever here. However, one cannot deny him a certain boredom and unwillingness to take risks. Such fragrances are simply known, although rarely as fine and excellent. Only curves, surprises and livelyness are not to be expected here. Rather reliable delicacy. Could have been a Profumum Roma. Or a luxurious, overpriced scented candle. He's got a good mind, but you can't be mad at him. Gentle and leisurely.

Flacon: these are already dreamlike things with the caps as the icing on the cake
Sillage: delicate yet thick vanilla cream, which is solidly distributed behind a
Shelf life: laaaaang - 11 hours, although later rather close to the skin

Conclusion: no new king in Duftregal, he is still a bit too arbitrary for that and doesn't matter. But it's an incredibly high-quality vanilla myrrh cuddly toy where you can get lost.

A Floral Woody Vanilla With Mixed Results...
Empireo opens with radiant, slightly sharp frankincense, supported by a brief blast of nose tingling orange bergamot citrus. Moving to the early heart the citrus vacates, leaving the remnants of the frankincense to support an emerging vague woody accord that takes the fore with additional almond-like heliotrope and dulled rose florals. During the late dry-down the composition turns moderately sweet as the florals give way to a relatively dry vanilla and amber led dry-down with the vague woods remaining in support through the finish. Projection is below average, but longevity is excellent at over 12 hours on skin.

Empireo is a tough composition to evaluate. The bergamot spiked frankincense open really smells quite good, and the heliotrope and rose florals in the early heart are certainly interesting and more than a bit different. The main problem with the composition lies in its use of slightly synthetic smelling vague woods. The woods have a bit of a dry sandalwood bent to them, but the accord doesn't quite smell like the sandalwood I am familiar with. Additionally, during the late dry-down the vanilla smells just a bit "off" from what one might expect. In this case "off" doesn't mean "bad," but it does smell quite different than most presentations of the ingredient and not particularly in a good way. The composition does smell reasonably appealing on the whole, but it is hard not to feel with some more tweaking it could have been significantly improved. At least one aspect is a vast improvement over other offerings in the Onyrico line, performance. Empireo's woods in particular are relatively tenacious, something severely lacking in the other Onyrico releases tried to date. The bottom line is the 160 Euros per 100ml bottle Empireo presents an almost split decision based on its up and down fragrance profile, but it has slightly more ups, earning it a "good" rating of 3 stars out of 5 and a modest recommendation.
