Trussardi’s eponymously named perfume in many ways recalls Chanel No.19, both approximating a green, floral leather Chypre. Here, the galbanum driven verdancy is rendered slightly sharper by some aromatic/coriander bitterness that comes off smelling slightly urinous. The rose-jasmine-muguet heart complex meanwhile, is accompanied by a pronounced labdanum sweetness and rests on a more classically-styled Chypre base with moss and patchouli.
A real gem.
