Summary: The good old "Roma" from 19888 was a fully-rounded perfume, with a sparkling prelude of Italian bergamot, grapefruit, mandarine and an unmistakable signature. The latest follow-up product is no "essence" of the old "Roma" at all, but a faint shadow. The gorgeous mandarine top-note smells startlingly lifelike, but there is nothing much to follow.
Summary: Let me be honest: I'm a bottlomaniac. I love flacons that are inventive, interesting, creative, beautiful or just feel great in my hand ... And let me continue - Roma by Biagiotti takes the price... or at least it is to find in my top 5. A well-designed bottle to me is a bottle you remember, that feels right in your hand, and that captures both the fragrance and the symbolic value of the scent and name. Roma has it all.
Summary: I wore Venezia for years until it went out of production (until now apparently) and also wore Roma once in the past. I ordered Roma again two years ago and just don´t care for the scent on me at all. It seems to be way too powerful at first although eventualy it does gets better. Yesterday I changed my bed linens and decided to give Roma another chance. I sprayed the heck out of my sheets and by evening, they smelled wonderful.
