Once 80s to go
I love that perfume. The perfect summer scent. But beware: This is not a bottle, but a disguised time machine. Spray once (and please really only once)....... Zzzzzzzupp... You sit barefoot in jeans dungarees with only one strap on top and white shirt on a wall and look at the sea. From somewhere Bananarama sing "i'm your Venus, i'm your fire..." Guys in pastel-coloured clothes stand casually by the roadside and you sip your ice-cold coke from a glass bottle. The sun slowly sets and transforms the palm-fringed beach promenade into a golden spectacle of colour. Then you pack the Delial sunscreen in your plastic wicker basket and hurry home because Crocket and Tubbs are waiting for you at home.
No other perfume catapults me through space and time like this. Absolutely good mood scent.

Wuthering Heights, the bedsit, and many tumultuous years....
Exactly today 28 years ago I came together with my husband. What was not foreseeable at all, because we could not "smell" each other at all in the beginning! We had the same friends and interests, but both could not stand it if next to us another sun shone brighter - and that despite 200 km between us.
At some point we discovered that the other is not so bad after all, and we began a lively pen friendship. So it came as it had to come and we became a couple - and that despite 200 km between us.
The 200 km separated us 25 years, in which we had to lead a weekend marriage for professional reasons. For three years we finally live together.
28 eventful years. Cats came and went. Friends came and went. But we have always stood together despite many difficulties.
A week ago, I once again tried a few scents at Rossi. Spray, rush outside, sniff.
This time, Giorgio was also there. Through the mask I could smell the first surge: oh, delicious and wummsig! Outside then: Yuck, what is that? At home then: What is that? About the disgust perfume? Smells not bad at all! Oh, it smells like jasmine! JASMIN! Great!
I must say that rarely has a perfume polarized me so much. The first scent after spraying is great. Then comes something strangely pungent, which I can not classify so at all, to then make way for an absolute pleasant smell, which, yes indeed, reminds of the time in the 80s. And the bottle with its crystal vase shape also reminds of the 80s. Just pretty and handy.
What this all has to do with our 28 years? When I told my husband about this perfume, it did not let him go and he bought it for me for our get-to-know-you day. Because it smells like the old days and takes me back to when we were much younger and more carefree, even though we lived in a one-room apartment - the bedsit - in the beginning and our song was "Wuthering Heights". Because it smells of a time when not everything but many things were beautiful and I like to remember that time. Because even then the scents were more opulent. But, because I also now live in a wonderful time and Giorgio with these bridging simply fits. Thank you, my darling.

The Banned One
How did we reach the point in perfume history where fragrance is being banned in the workplace? In an attempt to answer that question, I decided to revisit some of the "monster" perfumes of the 80s for some possible insight into the current backlash against power perfume. For the most part, I've been enjoying some terrific work in the likes of Poison, Loulou and Coco, all of which must have been pretty spectacular prior to reformulation. If the current austerity movement in fragrance was in part a reaction to these perfumes, I can only imagine that they must have been commonly and egregiously overapplied, because the fragrances themselves are lovely. Giorgio is a different story in my view.

Giorgio's top notes of peach, apricot, orange blossom and bergamot are instantly familiar to me, probably because they were recycled by Elizabeth Arden with little variation in Sunflowers, which was extremely popular when I was young. The orange blossom in particular is a bit synthetic and overbearing, but nothing I can't handle. It is Giorgio's brash floral heart that I find off-putting. As a tuberose fan, I expected to be able to deal with whatever Giorgio threw at me, but the tuberose used here is the bubble gum variety, and it is not improved by a faux gardenia note that is reminiscent of a fabric softener sheet. I detect the ylang (a favorite note), but it is not sufficient to redeem this cacophony of strident floral notes.

On the other hand, the drydown of Giorgio is rather inspired. It contains chamomile, one of those quirky but wonderful notes that is seldom used in mainstream perfumery these days because it doesn't smell "pretty." Back in the day, when Giorgio still contained real oakmoss and sandalwood (both now conspicuously absent), this perfume must have faded down to a bewitching warmth. Even now it still has a certain distinction.

On the whole, I can certainly understand why this singular, voluminous perfume was banned in some restaurants during its heyday. It still has big sillage and good longevity, though no longer mammoth. If you have a nasty streak, Giorgio would be the perfect choice to wear to a wedding, along with a white dress, in order to upstage the bride. Otherwise, wear with caution as you would any statement perfume.

Flowery sweet bombshell
In search of perfumes with monstersillagen I came across you. Pretty cheap to get hold of, so you times a 30ml bottle shopped. Full of anticipation took place the first splash on the wrist. WUSCH....my goodness... 1000 sugared flowers swirled around my nose. Whew, ok... That was too much of a good thing. So, after about 5 times of thorough scrubbing, there's almost nothing left to smell.
So again more carefully. Up on the finger and dabbed only once on the wrist. Ok, significantly better.
So this perfume is incredibly strong. Floral, slightly woody sweetness. Here you really have to dose highly carefully, otherwise you kill your environment. And that even through the FFP2 masks

Oh Giorgio
Summer 1993
5 weeks on the Croatian Adriatic coast on holiday with my parents and annoying brother, like almost every year, I still smell the sea, the good food and see the great people in front of me, the ornamentation of the crickets can be heard.And so we walked and strolled as I stopped in front of a shop window and discovered this yellow bottle of Giorgio... Even then I had to go in there perfume-mad and was allowed to test it...sprayed it extensively and that was him: MY Smell. The calorie bomb at floral, massive intensity, the strength, the spice...the riot for all time. The silage stunning. This precious elixir wrapped my young skin like a warm sunbeam. Immediately I felt grown up, important and like a lady of the world. That's how ladies smell. I want to be a lady forever. After asking and begging daddy bought him.(He was probably narcotized by the perfume cloud...)..So I carried him from morning to evening, at 30 degrees and more and polluted everyone with it.Sorry to the ice cream vendors, the waiters, the taxi driver, the fish in the water....
But even the most beautiful summer came to an end sometime and also the perfume came to an end, it disappeared because I never bought it again.why I don't remember.2006 then I got it at S.at bargain price,and I thought:Wow,my fragrance,my memories of that time.I must have it again.Freu.
Arrived at home, I ripped open the wrapper and couldn't wait to apply this gorgeous oppulent Lady- Wummser. Said, done, and what am I supposed to say? I was horrified. I turned up my nose. It can't be... I had to sneeze. I got really bad and I couldn't believe that I didn't like it anymore.93 This was my scent in summer.93.I only remember the "great love "I was inconsolable..Also the further testing in the following weeks didn't work.I just don't like it anymore.well,the sense of smell is changing,but one thing hasn't changed:
Even today at 38 I am still no lady ;-)

Enormous bittersweet fruity floral. In spite of terrible fame, not bad when gently sprayed. Crazy sillage, forever lasting & friendly price.
