Hey Posse. Have you learnt Maria Candida Gentile? She doesn’t get a variety of chat on the scentbloggosphere these days. It’s a disgrace as a result of her fragrances are so bloody good. The packaging is good, sturdy cardboard with out being a ridiculous wank. The bottles are snug in my hand, hefty, and really feel like they maintain one thing of nice gravitas. Generally they do. Different instances they maintain treasures filled with aromatic whimsy. Todays providing Barry Lyndon is a cheerful coming collectively of the 2. With the success of January New Concept I used to be allowed to purchase something I needed from one retailer/etailer. One in every of our Aussie crews LKNU was having a run out sale on Testers and I grabbed Barry Lyndon (plus a few others).

Barry Lyndon is such a cool title, taken from William Makepeace Thackeray’s 1844 novel and Ryan O’Neil’s portrayal of the character in a 1975 movie. The Maria Candida Gentile website says: “Barry Lyndon is a complicated and irreverent eau de parfum, a shirtless knight galloping over the Italian Alps.” On studying the synopsis he appears like a jerk however I’ll reserve judgement until I see the film or learn the e book.
How good do the notes sound? It’s like they lined up a bunch of my faves after which added some further curiosity.
So how does Barry Lyndon scent? The very very first thing I scent is the vanilla with a inexperienced layer excessive. Intriguing. This quickly provides solution to ALL THE GREENS! Gentle, natural, sharp, bitter, contemporary, humus wealthy and damp. It’s all there in in probably the most uncommon means. This nearly looks like a pure fragrance making an attempt to evoke the Empress card in Tarot. Effulgent is the world that retains coming into my head. A shining, radiant inexperienced.
The underlying vanilla jogs my memory strongly of JPG Le Male. It’s not the identical however very referential.
Unisex however veering very conventional masculine within the first half-hour, this can be a bit an excessive amount of of a familial reference level for some too. As soon as the tremendous inexperienced fireworks blow off although Barry Lyndon turns into as heat and welcoming as a hug. It nonetheless has some freaky greens for curiosity however the cozy base is principally vanilla with leathery inexperienced hints. Longevity is kind of good.
Does Barry Lyndon sound like a perfume you’d like?
