Even the citrus earliest notes, which at the beginning were a bit too dry to my nose (coriander and bergamot are not my favorite ingredients), now are taking over my heart.
Then, after few minutes, this perfume begins to exhibit all its deepness and sensual complexity: it doesn't lose its biting character, but passing through the tasty flavor of pear, it involves you into the provocative, sensual roundness of vanilla and musk, smartly blended with unusual but gourmand ingredients like pistachio ice-cream, almond and red pepper.
Moreover, the presence of suede combined with vanilla and all the other components makes me smell additional notes wich are not in the list of ingredients... sometimes I seem to feel the fragrance of finest blond tobaccos, other times the delicious scent of precious wood coated by beeswax... and again other times I seem to smell an intense hypnotic incense.
However, I must say that the presence of vanilla does not give to the fragrance an exceeding sweetness (like in other perfumes)... although vanilla is one of the most important components, it is well balanced by the other notes, which are contrasting and at the same time are valorising it, obtaining a unique, smoky, cool effect.
What really fascinates me of The Iceberg Fragrance is its seductive ambiguity: it has an androgynous character which makes this perfume a very sexy weapon. I don't mean that this is a fragrance for viragos... I mean that this perfume seems to connect and interweave the two opposite worlds: female and male, warm and fresh, yin and yang, in one harmonoius re-union. And this is very seductive.
I think The Iceberg Fragrance is an amazing, outstanding perfume. I'm definitevely in love with it!
