Profumum Roma Antico Caruso Eau de Parfum begins off with vivid citrus and lavender earlier than almonds added a nutty, creaminess and enhanced a touch of spiced vanilla. Because it wore on, it was nuttier, woodier, and smoother because the sandalwood married with the almond and left the citrus behind.
Profumum had a extra condensed checklist of notes (almond, amber, orange flowers, sandalwood), however Jovoy Paris additionally listed lavender and tonka bean within the base notes. It appeared prefer it completely had lavender as a be aware in it from my expertise!
- prime notes: almond
- coronary heart notes: orange blossom

It opened with contemporary lavender with sharp citrus–like lemon peels and a touch of orange blossom heat, however the citrus was tart and zesty. It was vivid, clear, and virtually soapy. It took a couple of half hour for Antico Caruso to get hotter, extra citrusy with a modicum of vanilla. Beneath that ran a vein of a delicate nutty, creaminess with a pinch of spice.
The perfume grew creamier, smoother, and woodier with a extra toned-down lavender, no orange blossom, and a imprecise nuttiness, but it surely appeared to mix with the woodsy ingredient fairly a bit. The lavender appeared just a little tamed by the looks of extra vanilla-like sweetness.
It was a melody of creamy, nutty almonds and easy sandalwood after an hour of wear and tear, which turned softer and marginally sweeter with much less almond tones after 5 hours of wear and tear. I didn’t really feel like I used to be in a position to detect amber as a transparent be aware at any level throughout the put on.
For testing, I used 1/3 of a 1ml pattern vial dabbed to the underside and topside of my wrist space on my left arm. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the scent as that is additionally my swatching arm (aka, extremely parched at any given second) as I discovered scent didn’t maintain nicely right here in any other case. I bought my pattern in January 2022.
It lasted for 5 hours till it was a skin-scent and about 12 hours earlier than it was fairly troublesome to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection have been average with the sillage dropping sooner than the projection inside two hours of wear and tear.
It usually struck me as a “clear” scent for a lot of the journey, which I like in family merchandise (like dishwashing cleaning soap) however not a lot as one thing to put on all day.
