Canturi perfume is available exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman, introduced by an Australian jewelry brand I’ve never heard of. Created by perfumer Kevin Verspoor, it has notes of bergamot, mandarin leaves, neroli, rose damascene, night-blooming jasmine, iris, lily of the valley, white pepper, cardamom, patchouli, red cedar, oakmoss, amber, musk and vanilla.
Canturi is really lovely. For the winter or fall. This makes some sense if I remember that it’s Australia and this is going into their fall and winter, yes? It is a rich, spicy floral, very oriental. It makes me think of Cinnabar and Opium and Poison, full of rich, warm, spicy florals, with a lush vanilla backdrop. It’s not as heavy as those, which is nice, and I could probably even wear it through May, but after that, I’m thinking a big no. Shame. So when fall hits and you’re wanting something new in the floriental category that is beautifully made and warm, Canturi is it. There’s nothing groundbreaking or new here, but it’s certainly a nice entry into the oriental category. The bottle is nice as well. $140 for 100 mls at Bergdorf Goodman.
Since we could only do one winner of the Tauer bottle, let’s give away 3 samples of this to commenters. So drop a note with whatever you’re wearing at the moment (fragrance-wise, perverts, not clothing!) and loving or hating.
