Il Profumo – Macadam

Perfume: Macadam
House: Il Profumo
Source: The Perfumed Court
Size: 1mL

Notes: jasmine, peony, pitaya, white rose, forest notes, amber, myrrh, patchouli, sandalwood

Date: 8/28/07 Weather: 75 degrees, evening

Wearing: First hit – orange, chemicals, rubber and nail polish remover. Reminds me of Goo Gone. Morphs into the scent of new Mailbu Barbies – rubbery, plastic and industrial. Eventually, the rubber and plastic begin to disappear (along with the rest of the scent. In about 10 minutes it becomes a gentle floral woody scent (sandalwood and jasmine soap come to mind). 15 minutes in, the florals strengthen and woods and amber appear. One arm still smells slightly of orange oil. Maybe some incense. Still a bit soapy. 20 minutes in it develops an anise note. At the end of the drydown, about 3 hours later, again smells like rubber and new Barbies.

Comments: I’m wondering if my nose is working today. I finally escaped this fragrance feeling like I just spent a day painting theatrical sets and staining wood. I’m glad it evolved (briefly) into a nice fragrance (citrus, flowers, wood and amber). Too bad that horrible rubber and new barbies smell returned.
