I’ve got three more Profumum samples to go, so I’ll finish them up today. I was reluctant to do that since I was floating in a Iris Silver Mist cloud all day, and it kinda ruined my ISM buzz. ISM is the only perfume I know where it is impossible to spray too much of it on. It lasts forever, but stays moderated, and… well, I’m still all swoony. There’s never a bad day when I’m floating through it in Iris Silver Mist. Okay, moving right along…
Antico Caruso — Notes of citrus, almond and sandalwood, it’s inspired by the scent and atmosphere of a classic, old-fashioned barbershop. Okay, I totally get that. I spent some time in the barbershop with my dad when I was a pup, and it does have the barbershop vibe. I really liked the barbershop and watching my dad get his hair cut. Um, I don’t want to spend $180 to smell like that.
Aqua di Sale — Notes of myrtle, cedarwood, marine algae, the aroma of salt on the skin. It’s meant to be the smell of the ocean. Well, let me see if the surf is up and pounding outside my window. You know it’s not bad as marine smells go, which I don’t care for normally, though it doesn’t seem to last too long on me. As far as salty smells go, I still prefer Sel de Vetiver, which it reminds me of a little. The price point on all of these Profumums, given the originalityll and longevity, really leaves me a little cold. I like this one and would probably buy it if it was below $100, like 60-80, but not for the current price. Tis a shame.
Aqua e Zucchero — Notes of orange blossom, wild berries, vanilla. It is meant to give the feel of orange blossom dipped in sweets with a hint of berry. Okay, this is like caramel, only yummier. I need to eat my arm and grab an apple to go with it. Good lord, this is one of the sweetest, in a great way, perfumes. Okay, I really like this one, but, again, I’m not sure I want it hanging around on my arm unless it starts growing into baby caramels, but it would be interesting mixed with some other perfumes, I would think.
The only Profumum I didn’t get to is the Patchouly, though. Sorry about that, I’m not a patch fan at all and just had no interest in it.
