Costa Bella Inspired by TF Rose D'Amalfi
This scent is beautiful. Lots of positive comments and it lasts a very long time on clothing. Very close to the OG. I am looking forward to wearing it in Spring and Summer.
This is a GORGEOUS unisex sillage scent. You have to spray it on your skin outside in a mild breeze or an air conditioned room to get the scent profile. EASY BLIND BUY. Please try this one I beg you. It is a top tier gourmand. Alexandria ABSOLUTELY HIT IT OUT OF THE PARK with this one. I never smelled the original but don’t need to. THIS IS GREAT
I received this sample from the company with my order. I really dislike it. I don’t understand what they are talking about calling this gourmand. It smells like an old powder compact. It’s purely a makeup scent, with a slight touch of mature florals, giving it a grandma vibe. Almost turns pee-like indolic on my skin, and I bathe myself in florals regularly and they never turn indolic on me. All I smell in the dry down is a baby powder makeup compact scent. I do like makeup scents but this isn’t pretty. Way too “dirty old rotten makeup from grandmas bag that sat in the closet for 20 years.” Nothing gourmand, I’d vomit if I had to eat this. I’m not getting any of the notes listed. This smells very reminiscent of Estée Lauder’s Sensuous or a similar scent I’ve smelled and forgotten. Either Alexandria sent me a mislabeled sample, a spoiled sample, or something… I never smelled the Tom ford version as I’ve never been happy with any of the TF scents I’ve owned so I wrote that line off. Oh well, too bad both my samples from Alexandria were such duds. I was impressed with Africano/the bal d’afrique dupe. I guess I’ll stick with that one.
