At one time in my life I really enjoyed i Profumi di Firenze Vaniglia del Madagascar. Now I don’t. It’s not the memories associated with the fragrance or the fact that my tastes have expanded. There’s just something about Vaniglia del Madagascar that doesn’t work for me anymore.
Vaniglia del Madagascar is really sweet. It’s a sweet vanilla and that’s really all you need to know about it. You’ll get some lemon-custard-tropical flowers over raw vanilla extract. It’s not unpleasant. It’s… Continue reading | 5 Comments
I spent years trying to find an absinthe fragrance that I liked. And I found it. It is aroma M Geisha Green. I was disappointed by so many fragrances claiming to be inspired by absinthe.

It’s a weird one, because not everyone gets that with Sandalo e The. The impression Sandalo e The varies from person to person… Continue reading | 10 Comments
All you need to really know about i Profumi di Firenze Lilla is that it is a lilac soliflore. And it is the best one that I have ever tried. If you are looking for a realistic lilac soliflore that captures spring in a bottle, look no further.
