Excerpt: After reading the rave reviews about VENEZIA, and wanting to try it- fully expecting to love yet another Laura Biogiotti fragrance (since I have loved ROMA since 1988), I ordered the eau de parfum. Perhaps I received an elderly bottle; perhaps I expected a repeat onslaught of random compliments on my perfume from kind friends...
Pros: Nice packaging
Cons: Doesn't Hold, Fragrance Didn't Last, Pricey / Poor Value, Regret Buying This, Too Weak
Excerpt: I try and use this perfume on special occasions only but it is so difficult as I love it.I love the soft floral fragrance and it lasts for hours. I have had some lovely compliments when people have smelt it. I have nothing bad to say about this perfume, it is just adorable as far as I'm concerned.I am so thrilled I have been able to get this again as I was told they had stopped making it years ago.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Great Value, Long-Lasting, Not Overpowering, Sensual, Sexy
Excerpt: I loved loved loved Venezia. This is nothing like it! I don't know why the formula changed, but if you are looking for the old Venezia, this is nothing like it! It honestly smells like a bouquet of gardenias-or something an older woman would wear where it is overpowering but not in a good way. <br />Shame it was changed and very disappointing!
Excerpt: I am so disappointed in my recent purchases. They are nothing like the original and whilst not unpleasant, the smell does not last more than an hour. The Original Venezia was wonderful and lasted for 12 hours or more.
Excerpt: The original Venezia had deeper vanilla and plum tones and stayed on the skin, creating a lovely orchestra of notes as it faded over time. I chased this perfume from outlets all over the world, to the Norell version, back to this site. It is still a lovely perfume and I order it in quantities - but the quality is nowhere near the original. A great pity, for those of us experienced "noses" who love good perfume.
Excerpt: This blew my mind as I forgot how lovely the original Venezia scent was.<br />You can't purchase this anywhere anymore unless you live in Europe. The original scent is from Italy, very sensual and it's very romantic and feminine. Men will tell me I smell amazing. Note very potent and need very little one spray is quite enough!
Excerpt: Soft, sweet fragrance, dominant notes of plum, resins and ylang- ylang. Quite similar to Venezia 1992 edition, but it is more woody and not so sweet, new version more fruity. Perfume will be good to cool time for everyday use. Moderate longevity and strong sillage.
