Cold Brew
I found Versilia Platinum with the first sprayer somehow oldschool spicy and pungent and at the same time not unfashionable good. Maybe it's this ambivalence that tempts you to stick with the fragrance to get to the bottom of its secret
The fragrance is a "classic Italian" if there is such a thing. It starts uninhibitedly with a straight punch of bitter-bitter spices, and falls with door into the masculine hardness of the 90s. I have to think of Tony Soprano or Paulie Gualtieri (both characters from the US series "The Sopranos"). Slightly unwashed, white sleeveless undershirt - the so popular "wife-beater", in addition suit or tracksuit trousers, gold jewellery and noble and expensive leather slippers. This is more or less the dress code for the scent mood. Chic-comfortable, coarse-masculine, not completely without taste: the quiet Garry Cooper With this concept Versilia Platinum gives soap and lavender a wide berth. It's downright grandiose: on the one hand, it puts it at a good distance from the classic old-guy freshness, on the other hand, it gives the fragrance its rebellious citric-sour bitterness, which reminds me of cold coffee in the dry-down; or green, unripe coffee beans (?) I personally like that one forgotten sip of espresso, which I discover again next to me in the cup after 30 minutes of writing. Cold and sour it is still a pleasure for me. And also the cold brew technique celebrates this preference, may the hipster disguise it as he likes.

For me, Versilia is this outmoded rebel who, paradoxically, is anything but "fallen out of time". Anyone who creates something beyond classical ingredients without leaving classical music has understood the cyclical-spiral nature of time. This is art by definition and anything but cold coffee

Platinum and fish and the 3 BUTs
VERSILIA PLATINUM, a perfume dedicated to the famous metal, inspired of the multiple impression stayling between the seashore and the mountains and forests of Versilia:

The story is nice and the perfume is interesting, and here comes the first "but".
Sea, salt, woods - I can really detect them, so at the beginning the conception comes true. But after a few minutes it is smelling like DARK PURPLE with fishes. Fish, wood, flower, pepper and rhubarb - all of them have a loud quarrel in the bottle, making me upset because of the nauseating disharmony.

I did not scrub it. I thougth that I will never feel similar odor, so it is good enough for an experience, what a nice essay will born from these moments! And it turned out that it can be even worse. I can not imagine how could VERSILIA PLATINUM emit so undiluted, pungent lemon smell (+FISH +cavern with rotting seaweed and rhubarb), if there is no lemon amongst the notes! I could not wait longer, I ran to scrub it down and give the richly deserved place in the sinker for VERSILIA PLATINUM, and here comes the second "but": It is the same type as my beloved TIRRENICO. Whatever you do, it will stay with you. It took 3 monstrous day to get absolutely rid off from VERSILIA PLATINUM. Metal is strong.

I am really sorry if I offend someone with my opinion - of course it depends on personal chemistry, so it must be beautiful on others' skin. And here comes the 3rd "but": But even if you do not like it, you have to admit, that $280 is not too much for a chemical weapon.

I guess They Really *Meant* Platinum Metal...
Versilia Platinum is a tough fragrance to like. It opens with a sharp almost metallic-like accord that appears to be a combination of black and pink pepper with extremely sour grapefruit notes. Cedar then combines with this metallic accord, creating the very edgy, sharp and almost acid-like scent heart. The metallic accord does tone down a bit later on, mixing with lemon smelling frankincense in the base notes, but it still is ever present, making for a unique albeit bizarre combination. Sillage and longevity are both above average.

I give Profumi del Forte some credit for its innovation here, but I find it difficult thinking of anytime, anyplace or anyone who would want to wear this on a regular basis. It is a very challenging woody scent for sure. It also is a relatively expensive scent at $280 for 100ml. Tough sell for me at that price, or even half... I will be generous and give it a neutral strictly for its distinctiveness, not its wear-ability. Not recommended, except to people who really want a super-challenging metallic woody scent. 2 to 2.5 stars out of 5.
