SOTD: Lorenzo Villoresi Musk
I had doubts before. But I've discovered that this is a Distance Scent. It works best sprayed on the back of my neck, and not on my wrists.
Most scents are fine as nose-glued-to-the-wrist scents. They smell good both close and at a distance.
But there are a few, now including this one, that for me are at their best at a distance of at least a few inches. I've read that this has something to do with the proportions of aromachemicals - that since the lighter and heavier chemicals travel differently, the proportion, and therefore the scent, is different far from the perfume than close to it.
So that's my guess. And anyway, I like this new bottle. This is reassuring.
That is all.
