A finely tailored rose-centric scent with an elegance that speaks of impeccable taste, very much like a bespoke suit. I used to think Domenico Caraceni 1913 is gender-neutral but with regular wearings I'm delighted to find it leaning ever so gently towards masculine territory, unveiling a slightly spicy muskiness underneath the plummy rose geranium. It also feels cool and dry as though a subtle vein of resinuous frankincense runs through it, but this is a blend so smooth I've long given up trying to decipher the component notes. Suffice to say I'm happy to join the discerning groups of fans in celebrating such an exquisite fragrance.
