Profumo Di Firenze 1954: Terrarossa review

Friday, April 1, 2016

Fresh. Unique. Classic. If I were to describe Profumo Di Firenze 1954: Terrarossa in just 3 words, these would be it. 

It was a blind online buy. I had never heard of this perfume before, and there was barely any information about it online, which is unusual, so I kept my expectations low. It went above and beyond any expectation I could have had though!

It's a huge, very heavy 100 ml bottle with a very masculine design, however it's very easy to wear for both sexes.

The perfume is an elegant blend of fresh citrus fruits. Top notes are vibrant and juicy with Calabrian bergamot, sweet orange and neroli from Tunisia; the heart is Indonesian nutmeg with ylang ylang from Polynesia, and Tuscan cypress; and the base reveals Haitian and Javanese vetiver.  

The blend is unbelievably pleasant, and it gives good silage. It doesn't last on skin as long as I'd like but it lasts for a couple of days on clothes. I generously spray it on my scarves and it gives an unforgettable and happy scent every time I wear or walk by it.

I'm always on the look out of something different and not mainstream, and Profumo Di Firenze 1954: Terrarossa is it for me!


Hot summer scents

Thursday, June 26, 2014

I have lots of perfumes, and it's hard for me to part with most of them because each represents a certain period of my life, a memory.

Lately I've been thinking about owning a scent that will always remind me of the beach - the salty breeze and the tan lotion concoction.

After a little bit of research, I came up with my top three beach fragrances.

Beach by Bobbie Brown is a best seller, the beach in a bottle, with the notes of sand jasmine, sea spray and mandarin. You can also layer it with Beach body oil. I know I will ;-)

At the Beach 1966 by CB I Hate Perfumes - the prime note is Coppertone with a new, specifically created for this perfume, accord of North Atlantic. I haven't smelled it yet but I've been dying to!

Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche Skinscent by Estee Lauder is a perfume inspired by hot summer days. It's sweet and floral with notes of coconut, vanilla and Tiare Flower. There are also lots of flankers to try!

У меня накопилось много парфюма и немыслимо от них избавляться, ведь каждый мне по-своему дорог как память.

И, вот, совсем недавно меня осенило, что у меня нет парфюма, который напомнил бы мне лето и пляж. Скорее всего потому, что я намного реже пользуюсь духами летом.

Немного почитав отзывы в интернете я выбрала тройку лидеров парфюмов на жаркую погоду.

Beach by Bobbie Brown - бестр-селлер Америки, который напоминает крем для защиты от солнечных лучей Coppertone. Этот парфюм на любителя, в нем есть некая доля химозности. Ноты жасмина переплетаются с морскими и фруктовыми. Аромат нестойкий и нешлейфовый, но очень хорош для жары.

At the Beach 1966 by CB I Hate Perfumes - его мне пока не удалось затестировать, но очень хочется, особенно прочитав множество положительных отзывов. Он напоминает предыдущий нотками того же крема с уникальным северо-атлантическим аккордом.

Ну, а о бронзовой богине от Эсте Лаудер, наверное, многие слышали. Я обычно пользовалась маслом для тела с блестками (шиммером).
