A delicious and sophisticated gourmand scent built on the always-enticing combination of chocolate and orange. The bitter orange opening is bright and sharp and does not fade away, but melds beautifully with the intense and luscious chocolate note that dominates the blend. The notes list bitter chocolate, but it does not have the aggressive bite of unsweetened baker's squares. Instead it reminds us of fine, European bittersweet cocoa powder – like Valrhona or Callebaut – rich and dark, with just a hint of sweetness.
Dusted over fresh orange and velvety woods (and perhaps a creamy vanilla-tinged note, as well), this is a luxurious, grown-up cocoa with no marshmallows in sight. Sorriso is one of the most elegant chocolate scents we have ever encountered. It isn't sugary or buttery and it doesn't juxtapose the edible elements with surprising, jarring notes. It is smooth and balanced, earning its sophistication by embracing the bitter elements of chocolate, as well as the sweet, and by using soft, soothing wood as an anchor. Sorriso means smile and this fragrance will surely evoke many of them.
Bitter chocolate, bitter orange, exotic woods
At first,to me,this smells like an expensive baby powder,but the dry down is very unique and pretty, slightly chocolate and slightly vanilla, it's long lasting and I'd repurchase it I really am enjoying it.
Been wearing this throughout the past week to get a real good feel for it. Performance is OUTSTANDING as it will last 12+ hours with 5-6 sprays. Projection and silage is good as well. 3-4 hours at arms-length and then it sits a bit closer to the skin for the rest of the wear. However, to me, this is a very mild chocolate scent that smells pretty good in the scent bubble but when I spray it on my hand it smells like plastic. The chocolate note is not as rich as I thought it would be and I also don't get much orange.
Overall, it's an average chocolate fragrance that I feel could really shine if worn while dressed to the "T" at a very classy event. Just wish it had a bit more density to it, which is what one would expect from a house like Profumum Roma.
Will wear it a few more times to see if my opinions will change but right now, these are my thoughts on this fragrance that seems kinda mediocre for Profumum Roma.
The best chocolate fragrance period!
I wanted to start off by saying that perfume is a very subjective thing, but I would argue I have a very good taste in perfumes and am very selective, so please take my word for it (unless you for some weird reason despise the smell of chocolate). I purchased this sample last year and absolutely fell in love with it! It is incredibly unique, gets me many compliments, and not to mention I smell like an Italian bakery for hours. It's obviously a bit more sophisticated than just a chocolate pastry. I even wore it out to the bar a few times and had two people ask me what I am wearing. Since this perfume is from Europe and it is niche, I can guarantee nobody else in your hometown in the U.S. or Canada will find this gem, so be that person to stand out! The bitter orange, woody, and vanilla hints come through so beautifully. My boyfriend finds this perfume irresistible. This is definitely a perfume for the cooler months (fall and winter). Highly recommend giving this a try!
