Stunning fragrance. The notes blend effortlessly with each other. After the initial spray onto the skin you detect the floral notes quite clearly however after a few moments these subside a little to blend perfectly with the fruity notes, not sweet they just enhance the overall composition.
The heart notes blend perfectly with the base notes after a fairly short time leaving you with the most fantastic floral/fruit fragrance throughout, not too weak not to strong Just the most perfect sophisticated scent that can easily be worn by both sexes anytime and for almost any occasion.
Definitely a winner from Ex Nihilo. I would highly recommend anyone giving this a try. Recently purchased a 100ml bottle, it's addictive!
SchaumB's Perfume Reviews
I recently went on holiday to Brazil and discovered this fantastic scent. Someone standing next to me whilst at the bar smelled absolutely divine and I just had to ask him what he was wearing, the answer was Flo * Vermelho by Maira Jung. I'm sure this has to be Brazil's best kept secret. After returning back to the UK I discovered a supplier the only one over here called Roulier White based in London, the sales assistant advised that Maira has created this perfume after her Grandfather used to make the original at their home which soon became the family signiture scent. I must admit this Vermelho is much better in my opinion, very fruity yet subtle and fresh hard to describe although their is a fruit in it that only grows in the higher regions of Brazil this could add to it's unique quality. I found the original very nice quite a strong Lavender smell completely different from Vermelho. A huge thank you to Maira, after many years of searching for a versatile unique smelling signiture scent it finally arrived quite by chance.
I thought this might be along the lines of alessandro Gaultieri’s Nasomatto creations such as Pardon & Duro which I like however Stercus from Orto Parisi is very different much lighter and easier to wear with a almost fresh yet deep smell which I find hard to describe however I really like it, and feel that’s it’s a definite winner from the house.
Individual & Effortlessly Superb
Challenging to describe however on my skin it initally opens very fresh and you can certainly detect the wine note. After around 10 minutes or so the scent starts to develop even further and becomes sweeter with the oud coming into play. This scent certainly stands alone in it's individuality neither trying to be oud or floral etc just effortlessly superb in it's own right. I would say this scent can be worn anytime of the day although better suited to the cooler seasons. Excellent scent in my opinion, well worth a try!
fruity & sophisticated
Having read the notes of the fragrance I was really intrigued as to how a quince top not blended with rose and fairly creamy base notes such as honey and tonka bean would work. The outcome is really beautiful, Bertrand Duchafour has created a fabulous soft fruity sophisticated and elegant fragrance. Not at all sweet or cloying just fresh, fruity and creamy.
