Nabucco Parfums are the unicorns. I kept hearing about them, eyeing them on First in Fragrance, saw that warning about bottles won’t withstand the flight, etc. Finally ordered them just to see what is possible in terms of getting them across the pond in one piece.
This is the offending, beautiful bottle. Heavy, with a screw-on dabber top. These are stunning bottles for these amazing little oil parfums. So FiF lets me know this shipping problem. I ask if they can rummage around somewhere and find some safe bottles to put them in for transit, ship the gorgeous bottles with, and I’ll worry about getting the parfum oil back in them. Well, yes, they could do that!
Unicorn caught, boxed up in empty Annick Goutal bottles and shipped to me.
Nabucco Amatys Fin Parfum is a gorgeous little gourmand full of heliotrope and pralines and vanilla, etc. Subtle, soft, warm, it is everything you want in an elegant gourmand. As soon as I sniffed this, I fell completely in love with it. Created as a tribute to Nebuchadnezzar II’s wife, who he dedicated the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, it has notes of almond, coriander, heliotrope, vanilla, jasmine, honey, patchouli, violet, blonde woods, musk, amber and pralines.
This is a deeply almost resinous gourmand, the perfect melding of notes. Olfactoria gave a review of Nabucco Amatys Fin Parfum.
I was going to review other Nabucco parfums, but I’m holding up. I love the other two, but I’ve been entranced by Amatys and just want to leave that right here.
Yes, a drawing for 4 small samples of Nabucco Amatys to four commenters drawn at random. So have you ever heard the low buzz about Nabucco or just missed it entirely?
