Heavenly gourmand
It's an extreme shame that you can no longer find this fragrance, unless you spend a lot of money for it on sometimes dubious platforms. The Tempore Donna is really, really beautiful. I also had a bottle until recently.

It is a gourmand-sweet fragrance that sometimes goes in fruity and sometimes floral directions. It starts with a pleasant, sweet fruit basket and then becomes floral and a little powdery as it progresses. Tempore Donna | Laura Biagiotti" is rounded off with chocolate, vanilla and warm woods towards the end. The result is an incredibly good gourmand that has a pleasant versatility thanks to its fragrance content.

With the top note, you could almost think it would be great to wear in summer. But I'm not so convinced of that. But it can be worn from fall to spring. It works as an everyday, leisure or evening fragrance. However, it is clearly feminine and also rather "young". Of course, that doesn't make it a worse fragrance. I have also worn it once or twice because I liked it so much.

Longevity and sillage are absolutely average. I have to confess that I don't know how much money you could buy Tempore Donna for when it was still mass-produced. Nowadays, you can easily spend almost 200 € for 50 ml. Therefore, I will not rate the price-performance ratio. However, I strongly assume that it used to cost significantly less.

Well, anyone who somehow gets hold of this fragrance, even if it's just a tester, will hopefully find that Tempore Donna is a pretty nice fragrance, just like me.

He was...
I sit on the swing with a waffle croissant with melting vanilla ice cream, my head turned back to blink at the sky and the orange sunlight rays between my eyelashes Warm - with a hint of orange fruit, but surprisingly unsweet and discreetly white-chocolaty, a delicate gourmand that accompanies you all day long. I have had this delicacy in my collection for so many years now and am still completely in love. What a pity that something so beautiful was set :(

Perhaps more in demand these days?
When we were shopping together with my mother at the end of the nineties, we tested this fragrance for the first time. My mother wore Venezia at that time, which is no longer available and has many lovers, and was always interested in the creations of Biagiotti. I myself had already developed my love-hate relationship with Roma back then, thanks to a creepy German teacher, and Venezia somehow didn't address me at all. Quite different tempo. I liked him right away. Mmhhh, he had something. With the peach and vanilla he reminded me of my beloved Casmir, but still somehow individual and beautiful with the chocolate note. Yep, I liked that one.

I got the scent about a year later. As a poor student, I couldn't buy every scent I wanted back then. But I liked to tell friends and relatives about the scents I liked. And that worked on birthdays from time to time. Suddenly I was the proud owner of a 100 ml Tempore bottle. I've worn it on every occasion. Had a large bottle: whether at university, privately with friends or in the evening to go out. It was always well received in my environment. In the meantime I would classify it as an autumn/winter scent and definitely not wear it at university anymore (should I think about studying again :)).

Today my bottle is unfortunately used up, but I like to remember this beautiful fragrance. Perhaps it would have fitted into the niche rather than into the mainstream? I don't know how he would do today, but I think he would hold his own, just like Venezia, whom not only my mother mourns to this day. That Roma of all people stayed? But he's supposed to have been reformulated the worst. Well, then they better go.

Chocolate Oriental
Laura Biagiotti is known for making sumptuous, complicated perfumes, and Tempore Donna is one. This perfume presents radically different faces in its stages. The top notes mesh really well with the heart notes, making it difficult to distinguish them as "fruity" or "floral" or even "fruity-floral." This strange but not unpleasant goo gives way to the base rather quickly. The base is the standout in the composition -- it is very warm and very chocolaty, like that cake that features molten chocolate in the middle. Even so, I would not classify this fragrance as a gourmand or call it particularly edible. Not for everyone, but you'll like it if you love chocolate.
