Hesperidic - Floral - Fruity
Beautifully packaged , gorgeous fragrance , sunshine on a grey day
Beginning with an understanding that the fruit Bizzarria was cultivated in the gardens of the Medici, my imagination is impacted first. I wander back through time, to this family which is responsible for much of the Renaissance. I think of the art, architecture, and literature commissioned by them. It’s a family of impeccable taste. The first note I perceive of the fragrance is the Bizzarria, citrus but unique, humbly mature, clean and light. I reflect on the fact the Bizzarria is a chimera, which draws me out of sexual norms, and individualizes the experience even further for me. Over hours the fragrance evolves slowly through the other notes. That maturation is amazing as it occurs over hours. Incredibly after several hours, the base woodsy notes still remain. Not for others, as the scent has become so light that you must move the scent to your nose to perceive it. Bizzarria elevates my mood, transports me to another time, wondering about Renaissance Florence.
Bravo to Santa Maria Novella perfumers, this fragrance is testament to the art of perfume and a desire to improve their customers lives.
Received a sample of this scent and could not buy it soon enough. I love it so much - so sweet and citrusy and the first perfume that I've been able to wear that doesn't drive my allergies wild. Cannot get enough and will absolutely buy again.
