Riding the wave
Today had to work, she thought. Today was the day she had been preparing for for months. The last few days had been upsetting. She'd spent nights keeping her entire circle of friends from sleeping with constant phone calls and had walked miles to channel her head rush into motion.
She was excited to the core and could feel the adrenaline not letting her body settle down. Her breathing was shallow, her neck tense.

She wouldn't make it through the day, she thought. She would fail even before it could all begin. Overcoming it seemed impossible.
But just when she was sure her legs would no longer carry her and she would rather vanish into thin air than tackle this day, the phrase of an old friend came to her mind. "Come on sweetie," she had always said, "let's ride this wave before we go under."
She realized that everything she feared, everything that seemed big and insurmountable right now, was just a snapshot of her life, a particularly high wave to be sure, but one she would overcome because she had ridden other waves quite a few times. She would do her best, stay true to herself, and she would not sink.

With that realization, she walked out smiling.

Victrix means translated (Be)Siegerin, overcomer or even victorious and the name is program. The fragrance impresses with its enormous power, its presence and its endurance. The pepper is clearly perceptible, as is the oakmoss, which however never seems musty, but very fresh. It's a bright and tart unisex scent with incredible longevity and sillage. Applied in the morning, I take him in the evening still in the Feierabend.

There are Victrix days in my life. These are foreseeably exhausting days, days that are externally determined or that require an absolute presence on my part. The fragrance then surrounds me like a bright armor and "fights" at my side.

With thanks to Anarlan, who introduced us and introduced it to me as the big brother of L'Original by Putmann. I wish everyone such a big strong brother, no matter what his name.
"You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to ride them." (after Jon Kabat-Zinn)

Successfully circumnavigating green faux pas

Green scents like to fall into the trap, and Victrix does not.

-He is not a tender little plant, which hardly pulled from the bottle miserably shrinks, but seems to unfold on my skin so properly

-It also does not start too modern and after half an hour does not turn into a watery syrup that smells like vanilla or caramel, but remains true to its color

-He does not reflect to me an artificial lawn, which one may not even enter then to all mischief, let alone lie down in it

-Victirx is not a photoshopped garden in which the eternally same weather flickers

-nor is it put-upon masculine or razor-sharp like some from the barber shop

-it doesn't get lost in a dark fir forest, (nothing against resinous forest scents, but then Victirx is rather not a forest scent, or maybe it is?

-Well - somehow Victrix manages to sell me an ivy-colored green that I'm sure exists somewhere - just not here, alas.

Anyway, long live the illusion, and for victoriously circumnavigating so many blunders, I think Victrix has rightfully earned his name.

Laurus nobilis
The laurel wreath to the winner!
What were those still for victory ceremonies, when really the winner a laurel wreath , usually still with a large bow and sometimes also gold-painted - was presented.
Whether a small one, which was placed on the head, or the large ones - which I still know from car races and boxing matches - which lay on the shoulders:
So the triumph was so properly celebrated!
(How poor in comparison seem today a medal and a bouquet of flowers!)

Perhaps that is why in "Victrix" the strong, somewhat bulky scent of laurel leads the way.
Tart and full of power: the leaves shining as if lacquered and the dark brown wood appear clearly before the inner eye.
Even if oak moss is so emphasized here in the pyramid: for me, this creation by Profumum Roma is a laurel fragrance.

The radiant laurel is accompanied here by the mystery of oakmoss; and so, in the course of its creation and time on my skin, this fragrance network reminds me of the proverbial English "misty weather": the initially clear impression slowly becomes a bit foggier; but remains impressive nonetheless!
Perhaps this is due to the interesting addition of pink pepper and coriander.
In these slightly opaque swathes of fragrance lies a secret that the so radiant prelude does not suggest.
Now this is truly nothing that detracts from the extraordinary freshness of this fragrance; it becomes more interesting because of it!
Fresh and iridescent in different shades of green, "Victrix" settles on my skin and makes itself there not only for a few hours.
Because my thick bathrobe, which came into contact with him at some point during our time together, still smells of it today!
Still pleasantly fresh, although already a little less powerful: faithful he is, this fragrance powerhouse!

Therefore Tusch and laurel wreath for "Victrix", the impressive!

Hollister in the woods?
The fragrance is initially strong in its green notes, but not too dark. Unlike other oakmoss and herbal scents I have tested, this one strikes me with a pleasantly fresh - almost aquatic - facet. In addition, it smells to me above all like pine needles. At the first test my roommate said that the scent reminded him of the smell of hollister shops. I have to agree with him there. The scent also has a more youthful side to it. But it doesn't smell negative or even cheap to me - in contrast to the shops mentioned - because of the herbal context.

In my opinion, the fragrance remains too cool for leisure time, but it is well suited for work if you want to smell something more unusual.

The Legendary
The days are still short. Fragrances with a certain heaviness define the picture on the console above my sink, spicy and leathery notes dominate the scenery. Nevertheless, the jump into spring is noticeable especially in the evening hours, when it is not already 16:30 kuhnacht. And so the legitimate question arises for the inclined perfumer about a suitable new or alternative fragrance for the warmer and hopefully soon to come season.

Enriched by countless comments on this website (and I'm a big fan of all of you, although I sometimes have a completely contrary view of things, but that doesn't matter, that's how the market comes about) combined with some own ideas equipped so made on the way to my favoriteriechoase. Six scents tested, already at the absolute limit of what my spice tester is able to process. And one was immediately and lastingly stuck. Victrix.

Victrix. That's a very special name for a perfume. Anyone who ever had Latin at school may remember that over 2000 years ago there was the famous victorious 6th Legion of Emperor Octavian, called Legio VI Victrix. Hmmmm, a scent that makes you the winner? And if so, about whom? Profumum Roma creations actually have a slight tendency towards theatricality. The spelling PROFVMVM ROMA already indicates this. And also many a further naming does not lack a certain inventive streak. Actually missing a brand or a fragrance called SPQR :-)

But let's get back to the subject. Victrix starts off fresh, incredibly fresh even, a real wake-up caller, a high flyer and a display stand. The green element in the composition is due to the moss, which I see neither as musty nor too dominant. Essentially, it is a beautiful, splendid newling with slightly green attributes. Point taken. In fact, I could stop here. Because, like all the PRs I've tested (and bought) so far, Victrix remains completely one-dimensional. Which can also be super good, as in most PR cases and so here, too. Note on your own account: All PRs leave an oily film on the skin - watch out for white blouses/shirts or other sensitive clothing that could irreversibly damage.

Shelf life: PR stands for enormous values, and by the way not only with Orientals or sweetlings, but also very remarkable with aquatic representatives. Almost unique. I'm talking about >10 hours, so a real bringer.

Sillage: Analog. Also here a declaration of war from PR. Clearly audible, large haze circle, everyone notices when you are there :-)

Flacon: Matching the content, unagitated, slightly luxurious touch without being precious in any way.

Fragrance: For May-September, from my point of view rather for my male contemporaries due to the somewhat bitter impact. Big PR. Maybe even the best.

For whom: All those who are looking for an evergreen for warmer days will find what they are looking for here. If Acqua Viva is too citric, Acqua di Sale too "seay" and salty and Ichnusa not fresh enough, a test is highly recommended.

For me a summer classic.

Victrix
Opens with greenish notes reminiscent of the smell of undergrowth after a rainstorm. Very fresh and aromatic this fragrance is unlike most Profumum Romas I have tried before since it is airy and not sweet at all. It is however, far too linear for my taste and it bores me soon after application. The scent changes a bit halfway through its development, becoming drier and woodsier once the pepper takes center stage.
