In the cypress grove
Caesar begins with fine fresh bergamot and slightly resinous clary sage. Pomegranate at best forms a counterweight in the background, which gives the fragrance something soft and round. Whether the leaves of the myrtle were used to support the delicate eucalyptus-like impression, or whether the flowers are responsible for the light floral note, I cannot decide.

After a few minutes the perception of the resinous and ethereal becomes clearer, it is cypress with mastic resin. The fresh part is now taken over by pepper and chilli.

The cypress smells so authentic that you think you are walking through an Italian landscape. But none where a bird croaks or a wasp buzzes, a blackberry tendril rattles or a little stone presses in the shoe. No, it's a classicistic ideal landscape like in the paintings from the time of the Grand Tour: delicate colours, milky light, shepherds and water bearers at the edge of a ruin. Over it lies a wonderful peace, and with it this perfume presents its wearer.

For several hours Caesar remains gently invigoratingly fresh, warm and a little flowery. Its aura is elegant through and through, it is a forest scent for the gentleman, not for the nature boy.

Sillage and durability are good, but the fragrance is not heavy, so suitable for the office and for the evening, rather autumn to spring.

Those who like resinous fragrances, but not heavy ones, should try to acquire them

Like a gladiator in the arena
Despite the short life expectancy, being a gladiator was in many ways one of the most glamorous professions in ancient Rome. Gladiator battles would draw thousands of spectators, including the biggest names in contemporary Roman society. Jeez, Caesar by Balestra is awesome!

Don't you let yourself get too impressed by the initial blast of aromatic notes of clary sage and myrtle. After few minutes they calm down and let fresh bergamot to gentle dominate the top notes. Despite I like pomegranate fruit, I do not get it at all.

The heart is green-grassy, reach of cypress and lentisque, whereas the pungent spicy touches of chili and black pepper are not that strong, just noticeable.

The trail of the fragrance is virile, made of dirty and manly patchouli and wild mossy musk, all sweetened by cedar. I discovered this gem a couple of weeks ago, and I immediately fell in love with it!

I am inclined to classify this gem as aromatic, suitable mainly for fall days, safe for office as well as good for leisure time, wearable during daytime, afternoon and early evening. The sillage is moderate, but the longevity should be long lasting being this an EDP.

Don't be puzzled by the initial blast of aromatic notes of clary sage and myrtle. After a while they calm down and let it shine and breath!
