A beautiful Cavalli
17 November 2013
Summary: Not as black as the name indicates. A beautiful woody floral, one of the best mainstream-releases of 2013. It smells of flowers (synthetic orchid), very controlled and without sweetness. Added to this is a warm vanilla-note with a velvety feel and, of course, some wood ("ebony") to round the harmony. In its amphora-curved flacon, "Nero Assoluto" is as pleasant to look at as it is to use. Could be worn to parties/banquets/theatre etc.
Summary: It feels like it must have a little time to grow. It feels a bit 80's inspired. In your face. Very powerful orangeflower. It was what I felt the most initially, but later it got a little warmer, softer and more woody feel and I must admit that I love tonka beans, so it would not surprise me if it will win in the long run. Need to try it a few more times really.
