Another Hypnotic Poison without the root beer--and that's always a good thing
Profumum Roma CONFETTO wafts unmistakably of Dior HYPNOTIC POISON. This does not mean that anyone attempted consciously to imitate it--and then charge more for the perfume? No, it means that when one mixes almond, vanilla, amber, and musk with some oriental spice, a similar effect is achieved--and it's a beautiful one indeed. Sweet comfort scents are always a good thing--above all, in wintertime. (-;

In a side-by-side comparison of these two creations, I find that CONFETTO, while sharing a touch of the Playdoh facet of HYPNOTIC POISON, lacks the somewhat overwhelming root beer quality. This perfume is less sweet and more woody to my nose, particularly in the drydown. While the Playdoh and root beer of HYPNOTIC POISON persist and even grow louder over time, the take-away of CONFETTO is less insistent and more subtle. I prefer this composition, which also bears similarities to Keiko Mecheri DATURA BLANCHE. I would place CONFETTO about half-way between HYPNOTIC POISON and DATURA BLANCHE, the latter of which pretty much lacks both root beer and Playdoh.

I would not, however, go so far as to characterize CONFETTO as a unisex scent. It still seems too sweet for very many guys to be willing to wear.
