Interesting Facts

In ancient times, Sardinia was called "Ichnusa" by the inhabitants of the Greek island Eúboia.

The name is still being used today in Sardinia - for streets and restaurants. The most popular use, however, is for the beer of the same name that is being brewed in Sardinia.

Cowardly? Somewhere else
I got Ichnusa for testing a few days ago. I was very curious since I am a great lover of fig (Premier Figuier of L´Artisan sends greetings). This scent disappointed me though.

The first impression: lemon! But it's not even listed? Hmm. Two minutes later, grass comes piercing to light. Still 2 minutes later I smell lightly fig in the background, which is however very quiet with Ichnusa, in contrast to Premier Figuier, there the fig screams namely.
5 minutes later I smell only fig leaf, but so light that it could also be a hand soap.

My conclusion: a very green, citric, light fragrance that is not worth its price

The Galante
Many Profumum Roma perfumes go in a sweet, sensual and sometimes very soft direction. Then there's fruitiness like Acqua Viva, saltiness like Acqua di Säle. And then there's Ichnusa. What thing? Ichnusa, an ancient Greek name for Sardinia.

The tester and ideally later buyer should be prepared for what awaits him. Well, I've never been to Sardinia before, so I was all the more excited about what was coming to my nose. First of all oak I figs, according to the pyramid it is fig tree wood and fig leaves. Anyway, very beautifully arranged. In addition, there is myrtle, which I really like, and something green, which according to the pyramid is "cut grass".

So far so good. What results from this is a simple but very finely made scent for the warmer season (it's a pity that it disappeared into the underworld and thus into the invisible corner of my collection, can't wait to get it out again). Fresh, green and with the addition of figs it gets a noble note. A summerly gentleman who stands out pleasantly from many supersynthetic competitors.

On the market for 18 years now. And with the stuff to become a classic

Nice, green fig, worth sampling
I loved the opening of this fragrance--a green, herbal, fig. It was really beautiful and bucolic. It wasn't coconutty, thank goodness. The problem is that as it dried down, it became a bit more soapy--musky with some vanilla. I wasn't a fan for most of the time it was on my skin, but it had so much potential at first. I still recommend fig lovers try it because it's nothing like other fig fragrances out there, which often use coconut and tea. This one smells a little tropical, but a little like the Italian countryside in spring too (well, at first anyway).

My mother peed in my oasis
My first comment here, and should it be a tear?
Well, not exactly.

A few years ago I came across Parfumo, collected all kinds of samples and put everything under my nose - almost inhaled. In the back of my mind always hear my former chemistry teacher say "Fragrances we fan to"
Well, not exactly.

Ignoring my chemistry teacher I rummaged through my collection and found Profumum Romas Ichnusa. And what did I do? I saw, I took, I inhaled. And there I was, catapulted into another world.
Well, not exactly.

I was still sitting on the couch. But as soon as I smell Ichnusa and close my eyes, I find myself in an oasis. I smell grass - so juicy and green. I smell exotic plants and in the distance I can sense the sea.
Unfortunately, this top note is of short duration for me. But even then I simply feel safe with this scent. The grass becomes slightly smoky/woody, slightly more masculine. At the same time a sweetness opens up, so soft and balanced that it can also be worn by men.

I must openly admit that I tested the fragrance years ago in search of a fragrance that would take me to the sea. That's how it is with wanderlust.
Does he succeed?
Well, not quite.

Even then I thought, "God, what a sensational start." But that was it, I didn't deal with it enough. This comment has changed that and I am grateful for this decision. At that time I found this fragrance a bit exhausting, couldn't tell what it was and put it back in the drawer. Also today I am not sure, the note is still available, but
she doesn't bother any more, strangely enough.
Well, not exactly.

There are still people who don't like it. As luck would have it, my mother smelled the scent on me that day and only replied "What kind of plörre do you have there? It smells like a toilet block."
Well, that's what it is, my oasis. No sea. More like a backyard with vegetation in the heart of Naples. And on the house wall, apparently, someone's been doing his business.

The bath of Pallas Athene
Warm rays of sunlight fall on her face.
Pallas Athene wakes up, slowly opens her eyes and stretches her slender limbs. Today she is free, she decides, and hopes that she will not have to settle any quarrels. Maybe she'll weave a fine cloth in the afternoon, and she can relax so well. She no longer had to prove to anyone that she mastered this craft better than anyone else.

So she begins her day with a refreshing bath. She descends the hot stones to the bay, and lays down her light-coloured sleeping towel. Light waves surrounded her slender but trained body, the salty water wetted her skin, which was light bronze coloured by the sun. She rubs herself with a sponge she took from the sea. He reminds her of the fun bathing games with her favourite Pallas. If only her father had stayed out of the fight, which was only a game, they were so young and careless.
But the cool bath also refreshes her mind and lets her come back to clear and pleasant thoughts. She climbs up the rocks again and lets herself be dried by the warm morning sun. Even though Aphrodite is said to be the more beautiful, Athena knows the benefits of her beauty and has her own secret rituals. So she lets an alchemist mix a balm for her which is reserved only for her. The white milk of immature green figs is in it, and myrtle, the fresh herb plant to which it has a very special connection. The leaves of the fig tree, crushed in a stone mortar, are also added. She keeps this beauty balm in a jar made of fig tree wood, with which she cares for herself. He wraps her body in a scent that belongs only to her.
Wherever she goes, this fragrance blows around her, which inevitably reminds everyone who gets it in their nose of the beautiful fig trees. The bark of these trees bear the traces of Poseidon, whose salty winds and storms whipped past. But they defied this whim and grew all the more splendidly, and produced the most glorious fruits. Athena prefers to eat the ripe, juicy sweet figs pure. But the immature, still somewhat firm and milky, she loves them in her balm, there is nothing for them that could smell greener. And green is one of her favorite colors.
Most mortals so often think that the clothes of the gods and demigods and warriors and other personalities were white. Among them, however, are the archaeologists who used the wisdom that Athena gave to mortals. For many mortal sculptors worship marble more than the gods themselves, and were unable to paint it. And time makes colours fade, what was once painted is now white.
Athene therefore chooses a light olive green chiton for this dreamlike beautiful, quiet day. The color goes so well with her scent. This chiton is what mortals know as a tunic. Her model is made of airy woven cotton and Doric style, she closes it on her left shoulder with a simple bronze primer. She won't be putting on her armor today.
She steps out into her garden, whose trees provide shade. Your gaze wanders over the shimmering sea, golden dots reflect the warming sun.
She's breathing deep. It's gonna be a good day.
