The mountain calls ... quietly
Bellissima - Italy are European football champions. And in my opinion absolutely deserved - at least rather than the English, who had home advantage almost throughout the tournament, had to travel little and kicked away the likeable Danes by a questionable penalty. OK - so much for "the ball being round".

Also nicely round and Italian is "Erbe Alpine" with its fresh and spicy style. And if the Italians can besides football games, excellent culinary delicacies and build racy sports cars something else, then it is in olfactory terms, above all, create highly interesting spicy fragrances.

"Heritage Alpine" is such an example, which on the one hand offers quite citrusy freshness, but also on the other hand with eucalyptus and fir balsam plays the herbaceous-coniferous-spicy card. A few moments later, a pinch of coriander plus a bit of jasmine is offered on the side. It smells clean and like taking a deep breath, like on the mountain peaks often cited here. The fragrance cleverly alternates between astringency and light sweetness.

In the base, "Erbe Alpine" is softened by some cedar and a lot of musk, creamy and even a little more soothing. Almost like a kind of aromatherapy. Overall, this Eau de Toilette behaves relatively quietly ... yet he is present, but pleasantly restrained like an experienced hiker who roams through nature, respects it and respects his surroundings. All respect.

What I noticed in passing: "Erbe Alpine" is kept quite unisex by its nature and development in my opinion. Also, the ratings are currently balanced between 28% for ladies and 29% for men. Nevertheless, the share of female users (should I write gender-appropriate users* now?) is over 85%. Let's see if it stays that way or if something moves there.

Differently beautiful than thought
Italy is home to many exciting smaller and really small brands: Besides those that are located between upscale mainstream and moderate niche (I would classify them as Lorenzo Villoresi and Il Profumo, both brands with which I have had fascinating experiences) and those that either really have a long tradition or at least play with it (Carthusia and Nobile 1942, for example), which both also have very interesting fragrances in their program) I have recently noticed a few small brands that offer pleasing (but often quite original) used fragrances at moderate prices without luxury cricri at fair prices, often combined with a very beautiful, clear and modern design. So to speak fragrances that (also) fit into an Ikea bathroom.

In this category belong unquestionably "Erbolario" and "Mirum" (very likeable both) and with restrictions "Rudy Profumi". Tuttotondo" also belongs to the same group, a brand that won my heart even before the first taste with its manageable fragrance portfolio, the simple, clear and unblurred fragrance names and the beautiful design of the flacons and especially the cartons. By a friendly Mitparfuma now a small selection of the smells of this house came to me. "Scherma" ("the fencing sport"), was unfortunately not there (I once practiced this sport myself and am therefore curious how this art can be implemented olfactorically), on "Golf" and "Chinotto" I wrote a statement "Erbe Alpine" now gets a short comment.

"Erbe Alpine" means "alpine herbs" and is correct Italian ("erba" = herb; "erbe" = herbs). Other brands use a fantasy language, e.g. Guerlain with his very beautiful "Herba Fresca", which is not correct in any language (Spanish would be "hierba"; in Latin there is no "fresca"), because the missing H sounds funny to non-Italians. Tuttotondo does not produce for the world market and can therefore afford linguistic accuracy.

The scent is unexpected. Herbs are only in the name, but not already in the note pyramid, and also my nose cannot recognize any. And although citric notes are (numerously) to be found in the pyramid, here too I can at best see traces of how the whole top note, including the coriander, is barely perceptible to me at all. The idea of a classic summer Mediterranean citrus kitchen herb freshling must therefore be abandoned immediately.

After a fulminant and powerful short ozone-fresh start with hints of citrus, the heart note of fir balsam and eucalyptus (not exactly typical for the Alps) immediately follows, dominating everything and dominating the fragrance as massively as a Dolomite peak, which provides for spicy-fresh, balsamic, moderately sweet, actually a bit reminiscent of "Ricola herbal sugar" and "fir oil bath foam" sounds, and, clearly playing second fiddle, the floral notes, whereby the (Alpine?) Violets are more noticeable than the rose. A base note of good order is also still there, but merely supports and frames the heart.

Thus, brushed against the line of expectations that were triggered by the name, the citric indications and perhaps also the starry night design, no cooling glaciery-fresh summer scent, but rather an impression of the beginning of the mountain hike, still near the village in the valley, below the tree line: lush fir forests and pastures and meadows with humming insects, butterflies, flowers and perhaps also a few cow patties
In spite of the balsamic it is suitable for summer and fresh in its own special way, and in the right way keeping the balance between unpretentious and original. A beautiful fragrance!

Special Herbal Musk Base
The fragrance, as it's called, is tart and herbal. But unlike Herba Fresca, for example. I particularly like the base, which mixes with the herbs in a slightly woody and musky way. Apropos glacier ice sweets: Only at the beginning. The scent is then no longer particularly methollastig in the course of AugustA's skin. Low Sillage, but good durability. The base unfolds in the heat very round and vegetable. Pulsating grey-green, you might say. Pleasant summer day companion and really something different.

Never mention coriander in beautiful scents, or he'll show up!
Hello you perfumers! Welcome to a new commi from me. Today we are talking about Erbe Alpine of the brand Tuttotondo. I had come to know this brand because a dear Parfuma had recommended that I try a certain fragrance of it.

Those who know me a little and haven't left in the meantime because they think that I would whine and complain too much in my comments,... uh, wait, where... where?? WHERE DO YOU THINK??? When am I complaining? I only complain when a great scent is disfigured by stupid side notes like coriander. Or I'm complaining when the summer should be too hot (I mean that due to the temperature, because in terms of clothes it's the season when you ladies look hot or hotter, and damn, I can say that, because you know I'm single, mu ha ha ha! Better pay attention to what your men say about themselves instead of picking on me, he he he... but as I know you, the poorest of them have long since been a head shorter... :D) or I moan, even if the next Star Wars movie should again only be an average flick, or... oh... OKAY, then I whine and moan from time to time, but some entertain that yes,... because apparently my suffering amuses you the most... HOW HOW COMMON..!! :DD

All right, what was I getting at? Ah yes, some who know me know from me that I am always looking for great fig scents. And the perfume I was talking about at the beginning recommended Fico d'India, a really great fig scent from this brand (which, by the way, I think smells better than Ortigia's scent of the same name). So now I've been babbling for so long about how I got to this brand at all, so I'd rather get to this fragrance here: Erbe Alpine! Which might sound cool, but fresh!

The fragrance:
Damn, I shouldn't have bitched about coriander. I'm not only smelling coriander psychologically now, there is actually coriander in it *sigh* Yes, I sigh because the rest of the scent comes across so great. Because I smell powdery and soft irises, slightly citric notes like oranges and lemons, which are fresh but not too lively because of the powdery and soft notes (which doesn't matter because they still smell nice). Even better than these citrus fruits is the slightly cool-looking and great eucalyptus, a fragrance that is very beautiful and in my opinion is skillfully used in far too few fragrances.
So, although I've complained in the top note (because of the coriander), I'm glad that this happened only in the top note, because most of the scents are now a little more intense, especially the sweet powdery scents, which gives the fragrance a gentle course. Thus the coriander, which seemed quite intense at the beginning, is or appears weaker again and moves more and more into the background, where it stays now.
The sweet notes come first from the violets, which together with the iris make the fragrance even more powdery, but the fragrance also has a nice, creamy note. In the base it remains as usual and the fragrance smells very nice. However, in the base the sweet scents then come more and more from the musk, whereby the scent then appears a little "darker". All in all, the scent is beautiful.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is quite okay, not too strong, not too weak, therefore at a normal distance, so if you stand next to someone (and are a few steps away), smells good.
Also the durability was not so bad, I think more than six hours were in here!

The bottle:
The bottle is inflated and has an apple-like shape. It has a beautifully designed blue label with prickly flowers on it. The spray head is chrome-plated, the lid a disc and transparent. I find the bottle a bit simple despite the nice looking label.

Soo... okay. In spite of all my complaining, especially about coriander (which one really perceives intensively at the beginning), I find this scent very successful here, because it has a superbeautiful charisma with its beautiful, sweet-powdery, slightly flowery and resinous-creamy scents. I'm never so sure about these fragrances if they smell more feminine or masculine, but I think that both sexes could take a look at them, or rather sniff them in :)

The powdery notes might be perceived as a little heavy by some, but I think the fragrance doesn't only fit well in autumn, but also well in spring, as I don't find it very overwhelming. Sure, it might not fit to the very hot days, which are approaching us again soon and where we all will melt away (moaning), but spring it is still usable well. Both for the day and for the evening!

So it's definitely worth a test, even for all those who like me are absolute coriander-haters, because the coriander note continues to fade after the top note (luckily), yeah! D

So, that's it. I wish you all a nice evening as always! See you next time :)
