October 1st 6pm Belvedere Villa Borghese – Roma

Posted in

October 1st 6pm Belvedere Villa Borghese – Roma was launched in 2010 by Italian niche line Made in Italy. Their tagline is: ‘Emotional Olfactive Landscapes’ is a forever fragrance for her. This brand is the best at linking scent to a memory of a specific place and time. 

October 1st 6pm Belvedere Villa Borghese opens with a bright, elegant note of bergamot backed by a note of sweet, sunny Mandarin orange. A delicate note of elemi adds a piney freshness to the citrus fruits. As it settles, powdery, earthy orris root creates an erotic mood that is heightened by aquatic accents, that give the impression of a cool, caressing breeze.  A rum note adds boozy warmth to the heart, while green, woody olibanum places us in a mystical garden. But there are woods in this garden: cedarwood, vetiver and patchouli.  The vetiver here is a veil of earthiness, and the patchouli is dark and sensuous.

The drydown is elegant and intimate and there’s enough room in the fragrance for each impression to lead one to another, creating a sensory sequence that pulls me in deeper and deeper. It starts with a sunniness that transitions to dusk, moves from the erotic to the mystical, and evokes summer moving to autumn. The way this scent is paced is a marvel.

I love wearing this fragrance and linking new memories to it.
