Speechless.
I honestly don't know how to rate this fragrance without it sounding totally insane but this fragrance tops every other perfume on my list of worst perfumes ever. I don't smell any of the notes from the scent pyramid... With very good will, a bit of lime and coumarin.

The bad thing is that the "scent" on my skin smells exactly like vomit.... Totally sour and absolutely disgusting... I washed the "scent" off after 30 minutes because it made me sick.... I waited to see if the scent would change when it changed to the heart or base notes but I just couldn't stand smelling this perfume for that long....

You have to look for something that bad for a really long time. I have the tester of Essenza Nobile, so it is not a too old or tilted test. I can not imagine with the best will in the world that anyone wants to smell so ... So I blame my skin. I guess my skin doesn't harmonize with the "scent" to put it nicely....

Expensive Narciso Rodriguez
Again kicks in Sospiro magic, one of Xerjoff brands, in bringing into the expensive perfume market what you find in the mainstream one. For me, it's hard to see this strategy without critics. I cannot understand, unless you are a collector of expensive bottles, the appeal of purchasing a beautiful and exotic presentation and receive a fragrance that i would be very surprised if it costed, in formula terms, 10% of what is charged. You know, it's like, in chocolate terms, paying for a Godiva (or other chocolates more expensive) package with a Hershey's content. what's the point, paying high just for pay? The final result is not bad, this is not the case, but what you receive is not consistent with what you expende. Structurally, this perfume is for me Narciso Rodriguez in the EDT concentration. Like Narciso, it has a radiant aura and conveys a creamy, cozy, exquisite aura, a mixture of patchouli, luminous ambars and musk that trade the silky roses here for white flowers as silk as the roses in a way that there isn't a huge difference at the final result. Like Narciso, it's a sufficiently unissex fragrance due the musky and woody (non dry) aura. I would like to believe that there is higher cost in the production of this one, but even from the creative point i cannot justify it for me. It's, basically, another exclusive/niche fragrance made for who doesn't want to wear what everyone can without noticing that it's being folled and paying high for what many can get at a more affordable price.

Smells like mommy's magic...
I'm six or seven years old. My stunningly beautiful and young mother is ironing some clothes on a cold winter afternoon. She's using some new, groundbreaking ironing spray, whose great "innovation" is having a handle attached to its can. The windows become slowly steamy and our small kitchen is filled with an almost magical scent of warm and cuddly cleanliness. I raise my head from my toy soldiers and, nearly ecstatic, I sniff the air. My mother looks at me and smiles. "Smells good, huh kiddo?". For the next couple of ironings I wouldn't omit to spray some of this comforting elixir on me every time my mother would leave the room, so as to experience a little more of its magic, and my very first encounters with terms like sillage and longevity. Until I was caught red handed, and the can was put way out of my reach. In what feels like a thousand years ago, my petite, delicate mother used to live in the realms of Fidji, J'ai Ose and Tamango. But all these huge scents aside, a cheap ironing spray is the scent that reminds me of her the most. The scent of an ordinary family moment on a cold winter afternoon, some forty years ago. And this is exactly the reason that makes it so unique, beloved and unforgettable...

Nirmala-esque
When I requested a sample of Sospiro CAPRICCIO, I thought that it was a XerJoff perfume. Now I see that Sospiro is some sort of XerJoff franchise, with an independent face. Maybe the situation is similar to the LVMH umbrella covering both Christian Dior and Acqua di Parma, et al., with a single house perfumer overseeing the creative output. I wonder why XerJoff, which is relatively new, would not just want to issue this group of perfumes as a special series in its line-up, rather than establishing a whole separate house. Probably for the same reason that Acqua di Parma and Dior pretend to be independent, though François Demarchy signs all of the perfumes being launched by both houses these days. Ah, the twists and turns of the modern business of perfumery.

How does CAPRICCIO smell? Well, I should say that it smacks of Thierry ANGEL, especially since I recently revisited that perfume. The truth, however, is that it is much closer to Molinard NIRMALA, which would surely be identified by some as an ANGEL knock-off, were it issued today. Instead, it was launched in 1955, so in order for it to be a knock-off, the perfumer would have had to travel forward in time more than fifty years! CAPRICCIO, too, could easily be mistaken for an ANGEL knock-off, in fact much more easily, since it was launched after, not before that perfume.

Why are all of these would-be knockoffs better than ANGEL, according to my nose? Because they are actually wearable and, yes, CAPRICCIO is a case in point. Sweet patchouli flavored with fruits. The texture is somewhat chewy but pleasant and the overwhelming opening of ANGEL seems to have been edited away, that is, never put in in the first place!

Going against the grain, I tend to prefer the "knockoffs" to the original dark ANGEL, which is a classic case to my nose of more is more than more: it is simply too much! That said, I would recommend Molinard NIRMALA to anyone who takes a liking to Sospiro CAPRICCIO. You'll be able to buy yourself a new iphone or some other quintessentially twenty-first-century gadget with the change that you pocket by settling for such a backwards, twentieth-century perfume offered still today by a house with a 150 year history but which gets no respect for some inscrutable reason.

I suppose that it might have something to do with their country bumpkin marketing. I simply delete Molinard's emails, preferring to focus on the scent of their perfumes, which is often quite good.
