Profumum Roma Orangea Eau de Parfum is a extremely fragrant, zesty tackle citrus with an emphasis on the pith and rind, reasonably than the juice. There was the unmistakable scent of orange blossoms within the air, however they have been one part that was highlighted. Orangea felt like the total image of recent citrus, not simply their blooms however the rinds and piths and branches the blossoms emerge from. The notes are:
- high notes: petit-grain
- coronary heart notes: mint
- base notes: bergamot, cedar leaves
It opened with zesty, glowing bitter orange below a path of the fading orange blossoms, which added such, floral sweetness. The petit-grain added physique to the orange, made it extra just like the entirety of an orchard of citrus timber after a lot of the blooms have fallen away with the leaves, trunks, and branches. Orangea was extremely fragrant with getting older orange peels, inexperienced cedar, and a kiss of mint.
The journey by Orangea modified by millimeters over time with probably the most notable shift was that it elevated its bitterness, and in contrast to some citrus-driven fragrances available on the market, there was little in the way in which of candy notes to counteract the bitterness. This made the composition recent, fragrant, fizzy, and cooling. I felt just like the mint brightened, whereas the dry, woody undertone rounded out the bitterness with out including sweetness. The drydown was delicate, bitter orange with a touch of freshness.
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 effectively right here in any other case.
I bought my pattern in January 2022; fragrances are recognized to be reformulated over their lifetime , so be aware of when a evaluation was made, e.g. a evaluation from 2010 might not mirror what the same-named fragrance smells like in 2022.
It lasted for 5 hours till it was a skin-scent and about 10 hours earlier than it was fairly tough to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection have been reasonable with the sillage dropping sooner than the projection throughout the first hour of damage.
I preferred how vibrant and zesty this one whereas nonetheless smelling of orange and citrus, barely of orange blossom however not as full in its floral capability as some neroli/orange blossom scents could be.
