Gracias @scents__hunter! Thank you for the lovely review 🧡
@thescentedgent: Today I'm sampling Verano Porteno by @frassai With dominant notes of citron, calabrian bergamot, jasmine, clementine and magnolia. I was kindly sent the new line of fragrances from Frassai some time ago, for which I apologise for taking my time with a sample post. So here's to a new chapter of exploring fragrances worn by the women in my life. Of course fragrances have no gender, it all comes down to wearing what you enjoy. Verano Porteno opens with the refreshing notes of citron, bergamot and tangerine. Its sweet and effervescent, which a touch of tartness from the citron to keep it grounded. Close behind the citruses, and the beautiful white florals of jasmine and magnolia, smooth, inviting and enveloping. It really does evoke a summers day in my mind, as the warm winds blow in a beautiful floral aroma. Vetiver adds a touch of green sharpness, that works well with the tartness of the citron. Cardamom sits deeply within the blend, but offers a hint of sweet spice, a note that is always welcome in my book. Finally ambrette seeds round off the scent with a musk like note. In terms of performance I got projection of 2-3 hours and longevity of 8+ hours, it certainly performed well on both mine and my girlfriends skin. Of the three fragrances in the line from Frassai, I selected Verano Porteno to discuss first as it could certainly be a unisex fragrance. Verano Porteno is truly a beautiful scent, and provides a reminder of summer whatever the weather. I'd certainly love my girlfriend to wear this, but I think she's going to have to share.

🍑🍑🍑 go check @frassai other two fragrances Blondine and Verano Porteño. Also keep your noses peeled for any upcoming releases that may or may not have been rumoured. 😏🤐🙊 If I must say so, Verano Porteño is a no brainer. Blind buy it if you like any freshies done by Rodrigo Flores-Roux. He is the perfumer for Verano Porteño and he has a very large resume of hall of fame freshies. From fragrances like Neroli Portofino by @tomford and also @johnvarvatos Artisan Pure. I can highly recommend this house. The noses that the creative director @natalia_ou worked with are very well known and have done so many great fragrances. CANT WAIT TO SEE WHAT IS NEXT.
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.
The world of fragrance is without doubt one of the most fascinating and creative ones. The sense of smell is powerful, emotional, and many times unconscious. Creating a perfume collection that reflects my vision of perfumery, that speaks to discerning noses while embodying the aesthetic beauty that Frassaï jewelry and candle lines are known, was as challenging as it was fulfilling. Join me on this #scentedjourney. We are just getting started...
