You can do it but you don't have to
In the prelude he has a certain effervescence that quickly faded away. Afterwards I take the scent for the time being only slightly soapy and powdery, sweetish... The fruity one completely escapes my nose. Something pungent, sweetish. When it's been on longer, I just smell vanilla. Somehow I find that scent "clean" is safe to wear around the office. I think I'd like it on others more than on myself. It is not bad but not outstanding. So you can do it, but you don't have to. Anyway, it is more the synthetic department ;)

What remains
If one had been born in Rome in ancient times, there would have been a so-called Unguenta for physical scenting. One such was a kind of cream consisting of a liquid base and a fragrant essence. According to Pliny the Elder, the most common and oldest Unguenta consisted of calamus, myrtle, mastic, cypress and pomegranate. Therefore I would like to think that the smell can be described quite balsamic, easily tart and with säuerlicher fruitiness.
How times have now changed is well illustrated by Born in Roma.
The attack is fruity and gently acidulous with the black currant. Add a tangy bergamot paired with a pinch of pink pepper for a light spice. The more warmth the fragrance receives in this phase, the more noticeable is the creamy soft Bourbon vanilla of the base.
In the course of time, however, it becomes quite strenuous. The conglomerate of different jasmine notes is demandingly floral and sweet; an almost decadent jasmine heaviness, if you can describe it that way. In combination with Cashmeran, the Jasmine-Sambac-Absolue develops a pungent note - an exaggeration that does not benefit the composition. At this stage, the opening notes have almost completely disappeared and a disappointing face of arbitrariness may emerge. Instead of cashmere, sandalwood or amber would have been more interesting. But with a little staying power you can reach a conciliatory point.
When the heart debacle is gently breathed out and the sweet smoky guaiac wood becomes more present, Born in Roma gets a slightly masculine aura, which is by no means bitter, but pleasantly soft and dignified woody-spicy with sprinkles of bergamot and Bourbon vanilla. An actually good finish, I think.

The shelf life is extremely good. You can dress up with this perfume for almost a whole day; even after a long bath, you can hear the scent of speckles on your arm. Due to the described exhausting phases I would recommend a (!) spraying stroke, otherwise the Sillage is not to be underestimated.

The fragrance represents nothing new or even innovative. The way to the sweet-fruity or sweet-floral direction with the license change from Puig to L'Oréal was to be ignored.
What remains is an eternal city in the modern age. Old pavements next to over-engineered environment. Overloud and whisper-quiet. Emotionally cold and warm to the touch. The perfume imagines an exhausting era with tiny islands of relaxation. Postmodern panem et circenses in a bottle.

Chic Roman
Since I already liked Valentino Donna very much, I had to test the new release at least once. I liked him right in his summer playfulness. It is carefree and fruity, the fruity top note remains for a long time and does not lose any of its freshness, as it is accompanied by bergamot. However, I cannot identify the fragrance as cassis, it has a rather synthetic fruity effect; the cashmere might be to blame for this. Jasmine rounds the whole thing off mildly, but together with the vanilla and the guaiac wood it keeps rather in the background.
The pleasant modern summer scent of a lively young Italian woman. Only the durability leaves something to be desired, because within 1 1/2 hours it is hardly noticeable anymore.

Flowery-fruity, pleasant, light and feminine, but nothing special. An everyday scent in a refined multifaceted bottle.
Average sillage.
