Scent of the Day, DAY 5!

PERFUME: Capezzoli di Venere


COMPANY:  Possets

AVAILABILITY: Permanent

OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: Oh the ecstasy! If you ever saw Amadeus, you would know what I am alluding to*. The fabulous confection from Italy with all the whimsy that country can muster, and that would be mighty. Start with a perfectly roasted chestnut for a smooth and proper base for the softer things to come. Around that wrap ganache made of buttercream and gardenia kissed mocha which will melt your heart as it expires from love in your mouth. Enrobe with bitter dark chocolate. Die from love.

*Capezzoli di Venere translates into "Nipples of Venus"


BEFORE I SMELL: I didn’t know that there was that kind of confection in Italy. I love Italian desserts and I have been to the country several times but I have never seen it. Maybe next time! I love that they have a dessert inspired by the nipples of Venus. In fact, in Roman and Greek antiquity it wasn’t rare for the people to make similar themed foods to offer to the Gods of Love and prosperity.

I was intrigued by the gardenia kissed mocha note as well. I love the combination of foodie with floral!



FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE: From the decant  I get mocha, chestnut and ganache! Yum!



WET ON SKIN: The mocha is not so strong. I don’t like coffee in perfume ( with some exceptions) and this doesn’t bother me.

DRY DOWN: It doesn’t change a lot. I believe the gardenia is used to round the scent and to not let it be so sweet. Brilliant! It also reminds me of cannoli ( a Sicilian pastry dessert witch is one of my desserts!)

FINAL THOUGHTS: I Want a bottle of this1 I am so relieved that is permanent!
