King galbanum
I wore this fragrance for the first time during a walk in solitude along a river: it was late April, light rays of sunlight illuminated a green horizon dotted with blooms, thick blades of grass swayed in the wind, interspersed with blue/purple flowers, wild plants with umbrella inflorescences, smaller flowers of various colors, yellow, pink, white ... By combining Mito with my walk in the environment, I created an epic combination. This very green perfume has galbanum as its protagonist, a plant of Persian origin, king of "greenery": in fact the opening recalls gardens and herbaceous expanses, where stems, leaves, roots, earth, pollen, fresh cut grass, contribute to the olfactory panorama. Green is here associated with citrus notes, making it sparkling and slightly astringent. There is something that "scratches", that slightly burns the throat: it is not smokey but rather a woody, resinous scent, like bark ... it is galbanum in its typical expression. The effect is strange but brilliant and I’m pleased despite a certain dissonance, almost disturbing. The composition gains complexity by the role of florals: hyacinths, magnolia and white flowers give poetry and grace despite being layered just below the green, which lead the heart of the perfume. In the drydown a mossy cleanliness welcomes you in its cool shroud. It is a courageous, stimulating fragrance, I do not associate it with bucolic sensations in a nostalgic or melancholic way, rather with a burst of vital lymph. This perfume draws on the classic without awe in remodeling itself in a modern key.

Mito EdP
The source of inspiration for the fragrances composed by the Swiss perfumer Vero Kern becomes obvious to even a mildly experienced perfumista: it's the golden years of perfumery, when creativity, innovation and willingness to undertake risks were not odd concepts but standards by which a perfumer's erudition and craftsmanship could be judged. Having said that, Ms Kern's perfumes are no mere blasts from the past. She sprinkles each fragrance with an air of modernity, making them accessible to today's perfume enthusiasts. Nonetheless, at the same time, she makes sure they do not become objects of mass adoration.

The skilful mix of “Mito”'s notes (predominantly citruses and flowers) creates one of the most pleasant effects I've experienced in a fragrance. This is what a sun-drenched spring day should smell like: zesty-sweet, invigorating, enveloping; in a word joyous. Like that morning in the middle of June many years ago when Mrs Dalloway decided to buy the flowers herself. “Mito” is an olfactory walk through a well-kept, lush garden whose flowers, bushes and trees invite you to linger in their shade, breathe in their intoxicating aroma and daydream. Since “Mito” is a nod to classic chypres, oakmoss is another essential note present. In spite of their reputation for not being the most approachable sorts of fragrance, the haters of classic (or any) chypres shouldn't be put off by “Mito”. On the contrary, in my opinion, thanks to Vero Kern's ability to add a “modern twist” to her perfumes, “Mito” is anything but scary or standoffish.

To this reviewer, “Mito” is joie de vivre bottled. I can't get enough of this lively blend of top-quality materials and the positive effect this composition has on all my senses whenever I spray it on. I've put “Mito” on my wish list, where, unfortunately, it will probably remain for a while as it's rather pricey. But being aware of its existence is pretty comforting, too. Bravissimo, Vero!
