I'm just cleaning up here
It's time to clean up after me. Many of my old comments have a tendency towards the dramatic and let's say ... I don't see myself like that anymore. And even though perfumes and fragrances are still an emotional issue for me, my perception (and my writing style) has changed a bit.

What has not changed, however, is my attitude towards this fragrance. Because in my eyes it still does a lot of things right and above all one thing: different.
If I had to describe Cerruti Image with one word, it would probably be "authentic".
He does not try to carry the masses away, he does not want to be in the spotlight. But he knows what he can do: shine in the sun and keep a cool head while he leans back and enjoys life.
Absolutely unobtrusive, but not at all unobtrusive, he knows how to convince with a fruity-sweet-juicy prelude.
But the topic remains "light", because there is nothing thick, nothing humid, it is so airy and fresh that you (me) can't get enough of it :)
It's like biting into a fresh, ripe, juicy, bright green pear. Not crunchy, but soft. So soft that the fruit juice flows down the wrist - all with a minimal amount of pepper to keep it from getting boring.
I would be lying if I said I could identify the sheet music. But I daresay they make the scent so beautifully light. In any case, together with the jasmine, they add another interesting layer to the fragrance and if you have ever smelled a leaf, you will certainly know this green, airy herb. Watery and lively.
The woody base is probably the most unspectacular part of the fragrance, but it fits into the overall picture just as well as everything else before. It is also by far the most astringent part, slowly and surely bringing Cerruti Image to a close
Overall, the fragrance always evokes associations of a jungle right after the rain. Rich, green, dense, but refreshing, airy and pure.
How long do such showers in the jungle last on average? The scent is definitely a solid 6-7 hours You could say that I fell in love with him 8 years ago :) Somehow I can identify myself so wonderfully with Cerruti Image, it's just a personal thing for me

Clear buy recommendation from me, even blind, because it works like no other.
(although secretly I would like to be the only one wearing this fragrance)

Beautiful representation
I've just tried a scent sample from Cerruti Image...the Entre is soapy and flowery for me. Even reminds me a little of Aigner No.1.
This candidate presents itself in the best classical style, but in contrast to many 80s the silage is rather discreet.
Unfortunately also the durability is discreet, I would have liked to try an EdP. here, then there would have been an even better grade The fragrance is simply knitted in development, it fades slowly until only a hint of cedar and sandalwood remains.
A beautiful fragrance that never becomes intrusive.
Recommendation!

Relaxed and approachable
The fragrance begins with fresh and fruity notes, but it is not cool. Even though there is no citrus note mentioned, I'm sure it contains some. It's of a moist and juicy freshness that's only partly stemming from pear. I detect a light overtone of aquatic freshness oszillating over the top note, too.
Banana leaf? What does that smell like? I perceive a hint of banana, nurticious and sweetish. Some green is in there as well, but whether that's banana or fig leaf I can't tell. There's woods as well, but I have to believe the composition listed as I can't verify.
Image is a rather warm scent that becomes drier and warmer towards the base. It is fruity and fresh, and even though the floral part is very much subdued, this fragrance reminds me of "Obsession Night for Women". This here too lets me think of nocturnal entertainments more than of a day scent.
There is nothing against using it during the day, mind. It's not intrusive, yet a bit unusual, and it has a friendly, relaxed and very much approachable vibrancy.
The bottle with its little lever to press down the nozzle is an amusing mechanical little gimmick which doesn't (noticeably) reduce its operability.

Great for spring/summer days
Image is a very nice clean out of the shower type scent! It is crisp & beautiful for spring /summer days right after a shower! Had a change of heart, longevity is about 8 hours, altho it does seem to become faint the longer it is on your skin, but it is still there! & yes spray on ALOT! You wont overdue it!

Image, Imagine, Imagination
My bad, I didn’t pay proper attention when Cerruti published it nearly 25 years ago. Miserably it was discontinued, and I missed it. Suddenly, I ran into it and its female counterpart, and as testers weren’t available, I went for a blind buy. I own many fragrances by Nino Cerruti, which I adore and love. None have ever disappointed me, and therefore I trusted them. Imagination is the mind’s ability to imagine and the part of the mind where images exist. And Image represents a sharp, clear, perfectly composed and outlined vision.

Before introducing you to the scent, the bottle is attractive and deserves a plain 10. Just a tinge of citrus on a green, watery, and leafy background, a lemon zest and mild mint. Among the riot of bittersweet fruit, mainly primary pear and subordinate plum, the banana leaves take the stage and dominate during the first act. There is a dominant green element here. Fresh, dewy, with a watery slant with no saltiness or marine nuance. Although the pepper is mentioned, I get a slight spiciness.

As soon as Image enters the middle stage, it turns floral and woody. Prominent indolic jasmine shares the scene with a muted mineral fig leaf but, most of all, a resinous and piney cypress. Do not expect a figgy heart, it is just a whisper and far from Philosykos Eau de Toilette or Noble Fig , or other fragrances centred around the fig note, for instance. Blended with these notes, I catch a pleasant woodiness underneath, courtesy of the guaiac wood.

And then comes the last act, slightly rooty and earthy but full of creamy and musky accords. Now the scent is almost close to the skin, giving me a sense of cleanness and soapiness. The pear is still lingering, and a verdant vetiver duels with a creamy sandal and clean musk. A refined patchouli completes the scene, light and modern, seductive, and the amber just adds a tinge of saltiness. Hence, vetiver oozes with very rich facets, herbaceous and a tad smoky, and cedar recalls the smell of sawdust.

Decent sillage for the first hours, moderate on projection, while lasting several hours, especially on clothes. An excellent all-around summer scent designed to be light for the warmer months, where stronger fragrances can be overpowering. Fresh, sweet, ideal for summer holidays, for going out with friends, but also perfect for going to work, not offensive and pristine. If you like non-intrusive cologne, this is for you, absolutely!

I’m basing my thoughts on a bottle I’ve owned since June 2023 (BC 0034C, PD 2020-02-03)
