Profumum Roma Neroli Eau de Parfum is ode to neroli! Heat, aromatic orange blossoms that had been lighter and airier initially after which headier, extra honeyed because the myrrh married with the neroli. The notes are:
- high notes: neroli, orange blossom

It smelled of candy citrus blossoms that simply had been blown off the timber, fluttering as they descended to the bottom, which added a bitter, earthy, and woody undertone however that floor was overrun by the blooms, so it was a mere undertone. There was little in the way in which of something inexperienced, and bitterness was refined, there so as to add physique and fullness to the scent however not take away from the inherent floral sweetness of neroli.
It typically made me consider honeyed lemon, particularly within the earlier a part of put on, when there was a extra notable stage of bitterness beneath the citrus, floral bouquet, and made it appear a little bit soapy on the finish of an inhale.
The impression was hotter, denser, and headier in comparison with Orangea, which was extra targeted on citrus peels and is cooler, extra effervescent. The addition of myrrh in Neroli introduced out the honeyed sweetness that shifted the citrus from lemon to extra orange over time.
A few of the floral character diminished because the myrrh moved from a mere hum within the first hour to conversing comfortably with the floral citrus notes. The myrrh added a extra resinous, honeyed high quality that added heat and sweetness to the florals, which made up the drydown.
For testing, I used 1/3 of a 0.7ml 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 5 hours till it was a skin-scent and about eight 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 sooner than the projection inside the first hour of wear and tear.
I want the zesty really feel and scent of Orangea, as Neroli is de facto fairly floral. They might each cowl citrus territory, however they accomplish that in several methods for positive.
