Jul et Mad Amour de Palazzo EDP Perfume Review

Jul et Mad Amour de Palazzo

Jul et Mad is a new French perfume line created by 2 young lovers. Amour de Palazzo is a perfume inspired by a romantic trip to Venice. Never having one of those, my impressions of Amour de Palazzo is different. When I first wore it, I imagined the dressing rooms hidden in an old opera house at the turn of the century. It’s a diva dressing in her quarters.

Amour de Palazzo opens as a spicy patchouli (lots of ginger, lots of clove). It wears as this for some time and then there’s a smoky leather. Oud appears but it isn’t sharp. It’s round and sanded smooth; think of oud-amber. The dry-down is warm musks and kitty cat fur.

Notes listed include pepper, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, violet, atlas cedar, leather, Indonesian patchouli, labdanum, musk, oud, papyrus, and castoreum. Launch date 2012 . PERFUMER – Dororthee Piot of Robertet

Give it a try if you like classic oriental perfumes. Or if you like perfumes like Histoires de Parfums 1826, original Prada, Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Cuir Fetiche, Tauer Lonestar Memories, Puredistance M and/or Amouage Epic Woman. Amour de Palazzo is unisex. I think it’s best suited as an “evening” fragrance or for fall/winter wear.

Amour de Palazzo has average projection and above average longevity.

The 1.7 oz bottle retails for $280 Beautyhabit.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONOpera house oriental with spices, patchouli, amber and oud. I rather like it and I supposed if I tried it in cool weather, I’d love it. But, I don’t love the price. Saying that, it does smell luxurious and expensive.  I’m not talking about its quality. I’m talking about me personally and how much I’d use it. This is a glamorous fragrance but I have so many orientals in my collection. I’m probably going to be embalmed in them…
