Eau de Cologne
Du jardin Shorai ou jardin des roses, on voit la coupole et une partie du centre historique de Florence. Le tableau du peintre, Teppei Sasakura, imprimé sur l’étui, symbolise le jumelage entre Florence et Kyoto dans sa 50e année. L’acqua di colonia Cinquanta de l’Oﬀicina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella a été créée pour fêter cet anniversaire. C’est un bouquet floral où les notes de tête de gardénia, de fleur d’oranger et de fleurs de Tiarè se mêlent aux douces senteurs boisées et du thé vert dans la richesse du bois de cachemire. Une note musquée et ambrée précède les notes de fond des bois précieux.
Notes Olfactives: Ambre floral musqué
Tête: gardénia, fleurs d'oranger
Milieu: thé vert, résineux
Base: ambre, bois précieux, musc blanc
It was a gift from my boyfriend of one of his trips to Rome - I absolutely feltl in love with Cinquenta and it has become my signature scent. It gets better with time (from opening), and as the day goes by the fragrance persists (great fixation without changing its notes!). I wish there was a body cream and a shower gel of this scent, and waxes for the wardrobe - would definitely purchase tose!
I bought a bottle of Cinquanta in Rome during a spring break trip after smelling it at the original location in Florence. While normally I prefer a gourmand scent, this perfume is truly flawless. It's floral but sweet, citrusy and fresh and fun, and it lasts for ages! I was delighted to learn that there was a boutique near me in New York City, so that when I wear out this bottle (in a year or two--there's plenty in there!) I can head right to that location. This perfume is a knockout for sure, and I'll definitely be wearing it for many years to come!
My partner returned from Florence two years ago and gave me this fragrance as a Christmas present. I've been wearing it consistently since, and this fragrance is dynamic, complex, and seasonless. It is warm enough for Fall and Winter, but bright and fresh enough for the Spring and Summer months.
Truly the perfect scent!
