"We'll leave you gentlemen to your port and cigars...
... and retire to the parlor to chat until coffee is served. I may then lead the ladies."
How this story continues can be read in many places.
The fact is that the "women" had to leave the dining room after dessert and cheese.
There the tablecloths were removed - probably to make it easier for the washerwoman to do her work when the gentlemen were messing around with port and ashes.
The talks turned to politics and other topics that did not seem suitable for "women's ears".

Well, fortunately, to enjoy a glass of port wine even as a woman, we no longer have to "emigrate" and leave our comfortable place at the table; we are even allowed to have the formerly male drink in company!
I love a glass of port or sherry, specially during these small talk events; one has something in one's hand, can sip the glass from time to time while the conversation is going on and it is not so much as if wine is served.
(This also gives you the opportunity to leave the room politely after emptying the glass)
I also live consciously through my senses and so this drink is a revelation for me again and again.
Whether the young classic "Ruby Port", a flowery Rosé Port in long drinks, or the reserved "White Port" at the table; they are all, each in their own time, worth a glass full.
But I especially like the "Tawny Port", which has the necessary maturity for old age. Maybe that's why we get along so well The right barrels belong with the right wine. Port wine is still traditionally made in oak barrels (mostly from France).
Once these barrels have served their time in the wine cellars and their wood is wonderfully saturated with the aroma of port wine, they are not disposed of: no, a second life begins for these barrels! A second life, which is also dedicated to the optimization of pleasure.

Some of these barrels continue their journey to northern Italy. This is where, according to an old tradition, "Aceto Balsamico" is still used in Modena for the birth of a daughter. Stored in airy rooms, evaporating part of the liquid (in whisky, by the way, this is called "Angel's Mist"), this noble liquid is transferred into smaller and smaller casks after a number of years, until finally the peak of maturity and the smallest cask is reached.
The daughter then brings the really noble "Aceto Balsamico" into the marriage as a dowry
The large former port wine and sherry barrels are sold to Norway. There, in Trondheim, they are filled with aquavit and then set off on the long journey to Tasmania and back with one of the big ships.
After crossing the equator twice and many changes of weather and time zone, this aquavit is then ripe: it is bottled and provided with the well-known blue-red labels. On the back of the certificate, the duration of the voyage (from departure to re-landing) and the name of the vessel is noted This gives this aquavit its special maturity and mildness, making it unmistakable.

But now, after this extensive excursion to the land of port wine, I end up with "Bello Rabelo": finally some readers will think!!
Like all the "Liquides Imaginaires" I have encountered so far, "Bello Rabelo" is also very wine-heavy.
The full-bodied aroma of the noble port wine, which pervades the entire fragrance artwork, is accompanied by the oak wood of the barrels.
This immediately creates a certain heaviness; underlaid with the sweetness of dried fruit.
Anyone who soaks dried fruits and then boils them up knows their incomparable aroma - so sweet and so fruity! The sweetness of our port wine goes perfectly with it: it exhilarates this fragrance. I almost want to say: "Bello Rabelo" is already a little bit tipsy!
This already fruity-aromatic something is spiced up by immortelle and rockrose; the aromatic spirit also gets additional small resinous spikes from benzoin. They have to be "embalmed" a little bit, so as not to disturb the harmoniously round scent too much, although they belong there.
A large dose of vanilla, exotic-erotic as always, completes this fragrant, not everyday perfume beau!
Now he feels good, sits proudly in posture and lets everyone who comes near him participate in his glory.
Bello Rabelo" is not made for shy, sober cocoa or water drinkers!
On the one hand he likes the big stage, but on the other hand he also enjoys the typical intimacy of a library lit by an open fire, where long and entertaining conversations are held.

A great, yes, spectacular scent, with unfortunately not too much durability.
But of course it makes sense: Port and sherry wines are also served in small glasses.
So let's enjoy "Bello Rabelo" in small, or better: short doses and enjoy its exceptional appearance!
It doesn't always have to be a small barrel; its contents and the oak wood surrounding it are also particularly valuable!
Some splashes of "Bello Rabelo" do it too!

Here my special thanks to Yatagan, who sent me this - now unfortunately already empty - bottling.
I drink/flavor your health, my dear perfumed friend!

Too similar to Marquis de SADE
Again i face an evolution issue on this Les Liquides Imaginaires wine trilogy. If in Bloody Wood the main problem is the too close to skin evolution and in Dom Rosa my main concern is the functional note out of place, in Bello Rabelo I see a huge similiarity with another brand's creation. The wine inspiration here is very interesting, it's one of the fews i have seen so far were the fruits lack any tart or sweetness on their aroma. They are like the aroma of grapes in one of those dry wines. What comes next is very familiar and left me intrigued because it was an exotic smell very well knowN. At first i thought i was smelling a SL Jeux de Peau version without the bread note, but then i realized that it similarty was too close with the Histoires de Parfums Marquis de Sade. It's an imortelle note without the burnt sugar aspect, with the hay side more intense, mixed in a dry, incensed amber and a subtle hint of vanilla and use of myrrh to slightly reinforce the fruits in the wine. It's a fact that scented pyramids cannot tell you how close to fragrances are, in view of that you cannot know the real elements playing the role of the notes listed (be they natural or synthetic) and neither you know in which concentration they are. But i think it's very weird that those two are so similar when they drydown. I see great ideas on Les Liquides Imaginaires, i see complete fragrances, pleasant aromas but they three lack coeherence. This is a problem in the collection as whole, considering you only have 3 fragrances inspired on wine and one of them is a champagne one instead; it's also a coeherence execution issue, with poor or unoriginal developments. Considering that they are not cheap fragrances, i don't recommend any of the trio.

An old wooden cask filled with port wine and black liquorice. Alluring and haunting but to call it weak would be an understatement.
