mrcologne76Frag community watch out for these gems recently released by the house of @frassai. I was sent Tian Di, Blondine and Verano Porteno for my review. I wore each one twice and both times Blondine came out as my favorite. Notes for this one are salted butter caramel, pear leaves, ashok flower, tiger lilly, coco, and blonde musks. Bravo to the perfumer for taking a wonderfully done floral scent and softening the sharp nuances with notes like caramel and cocoa. Despite the fact that I do not see gender distinctions when it comes to perfumery this one leans a little to the feminine side however it can still be worn by a man just as easily. This fragrance maintains a presence without being overpowering. Its opening was quite floral despite the fact that the first listed note salted butter caramel. Within 30 minutes it's sharp edges dulled considerably and it became warm and inviting. I wore my sample to bed and was still able to smell it on my skin the next morning so longevity is upwards of eight hours. It must be said that the dry down was hardly floral but Cocoa and Blonde Musks form the base of this fragrance. This fragrance definitely has a sensual appeal to me and I enjoyed how it transition from the opening to the warm heart. This would be appropriate in Fall or Summer though It would fare well in colder temps. Since projection (at least when I wore it) was not beast mode this would do great in Intimate settings. Date night or even work. I also really enjoyed Verano Porteno. It's a beautiful blend of citrus almost natural in profile and white florals.
