Squaring the "Lemon"
Michael Edwards classifies Albi as "rich citrus" and that's how this fragrance comes across to me. The density of the composition is due to the heavy dose of tree moss, which is most brilliantly married to the petitgrain-heavy citrus chord. There is a moment of candied sweetness, but in contrast to comparable fragrances, such as Tova for Men, it remains discreet and does not transform the wearer into a walking piece of candied lemon peel. In my opinion, lavender only plays a supporting role as a light herbal counterpoint to the mossy base, instead of staging itself as a supporting pillar. All in all, Albi succeeds in squaring the circle as an innovative citrus scent that reconciles summer liveliness with masculine-mossy gravitas and citrus freshness with astonishing longevity and sillage. Excellent construction and beautiful to wear.

Unsweetened Jicky?
Having recently reviewed Guerlain JICKY (reformulated) and compared it to spice cake served in a barber shop, I find myself thinking of barber shops again while wearing Laura Tonatto ALBI perfume oil. My experience may differ from that of those who have tested the eau de toilette, but I am able to detect the key notes in this composition, despite the almond carrier oil, which in some of the other perfume oils from this house shrouds the identity-making notes.

The reason why the notes are salient in the case of ALBI is no doubt because the notes are characteristically strong: lavender! pepper! other unnamed spices! and petit grain!

All of this excitement conspires to conjure in my mind the image of the barbershop shaving scene in The Godfather. Really. I have a very visual memory, and I do not recall ever having been inside a barbershop, so my most direct experience is from an unforgettable scene from an unforgettable and wonderful film: The Godfather.

I do not mean to suggest that ALBI is heinous or murderous or otherwise unpleasant. It offers precisely the sort of familiar vibe needed to be able to lure someone into that fated chair. After that, it's all up to the barber--or reasonable facsimile.

manly lavender
A beautiful, crisp, manly lavender-with-an-edge that I would love to smell on many men. It's a bit much on me, but it's lovely sprayed on my pillow. (051610)
