The inner values
I got hold of this Signorina as a sample, tried it out directly and very quickly found it not suitable. Too loud, too peppery, too flowery, just too scratchy. On my skin, the top note consists only of pepper. Pepper, which burns in the nose and closes it, blocks virtually all receptors in the nose.
No, this is not my Signorina, I thought and tried to get rid of her quickly with water. But this signorina is an affectionate thing, water and soap, yes, and as if that would scare her off. So she lingered a little longer on my skin and let my husband curiously sniff at me.
"You smell good!
That was the sentence that made me give her a second chance. The initial fresh, tart one-dimensionality of the fragrance gives way to a more complex development. After about a quarter of an hour, the pepper withdraws and lets the flowers, superficially the rose, take precedence. Signorina is getting smoother, a little sweeter. I think it's the pannacotta note. In fact, a depth that could not even be guessed at the beginning gradually develops, the flowers become more lovely, softer and a warm, vanilla gourmand with a light, enigmatic freshness of colourful flowers remains as a basis. This signorina is different from what she seems at first sight. Her charisma develops from a stubborn beast to a happy girl to a sweet thing.
I'm still struggling with myself, whether the crabby prelude with the full load of pepper doesn't scare me off too much to let this signorina move in with me.
