Profumum Roma Dolce Acqua Eau de Parfum is primarily a scent devoted to creamy, cherry-almond and vanilla that goes from extremely candy to extra flippantly spiced vanilla over time. There was some powderiness about mid-way by means of however didn’t linger by means of the drydown, which was characterised by candy almond-vanilla.

It opened with a trio of coconut, almond, and vanilla with nearly alcoholic and harsh really feel for the primary minute earlier than it smoothed out with almond and vanilla. The coconut wasn’t a very discernible observe to me past that first minute, however it might have given the feeling of over-sweetening the whole lot for early moments. The coconut in the end appeared overpowered by almond, vanilla, and tonka bean, which resulted in bouquet of spiced marzipan and maraschino cherries projecting a foot or so off my wrist.
Dolce Acqua was stuffed with creamy, nutty almonds, spiced vanilla, and honey. It had a wealthy, underlying really feel and aroma of golden honey that gave physique to the sweetness that enveloped the almond. The extra the honey got here by means of, the much less like Play-doh it smelled like, and I write that as a impartial descriptor; Play-Doh’s scent is trademarked as “musky, vanilla-like” with “slight overtones of cherry.” For essentially the most half, it didn’t think of the long-lost reminiscence of Play-doh because the spice and honey usually made it much less paying homage to it.
There was gentle powderiness that began to return by means of after three hours. Because it wore on, the shifts had been minimal till the drydown, which was largely almond and barely-spiced vanilla and had misplaced its powderiness.
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.
It lasted for six hours till it was a skin-scent and about 10 hours earlier than it was fairly troublesome to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection had been average with the sillage dropping quicker than the projection inside two hours of damage.
