Italian Caramel Inspired By Xerjoff Italica.
Milk, almond cookies filled with silky toffee. Yum! I say that if anybody smelled like this I would become the cookie monster or the sweet tooth Dracula and take a bite from their delicious smelling neck! (Just Kidding!) This delicious mix is the gourmands lover dream! Woody, Sweet, Smooth, Silky, Creamy deliciousness makes the most delicious gourmand fragrance you have ever placed your nose on. Unbelievable realistic Italian almond and caramel cookies and milk. Words aren’t even capable of describing how good this scent truly is. Simply .
Inspired by Xerjoff Italica.
Notes: Sweet-Woody-Almond-Vanilla-Warm Spicy-Milky
I first got this one in the sample spray. It blew my mind because it is such an addictive smell. Keep in mind I have never smelt the original but if it smells anything like this, I am 100% sure it smells amazing. It reminds me of almond cookies drizzled with caramel. Every time i just smell the nozzle I say to myself OMG. If you like sweet fragrances, if you enjoy gourmands, if you like to smell delicious.....BUY IT NOW!!!!
This is truly a toffee masterpiece.
I just received this most delicious fragrance, and thankfully I had a sample of the real thing (Italica). I think Edward is a little more of a harsh critic than I, but to my nose, this is a damn near smack dab clone of the real thing. I got maybe 95-98% closeness. I must always stress though, if you can afford it, buy the real fragrance, but if you are more judicious with money like myself, get this. I am uber impressed with Alexandria! Thank you Alexandria for bringing excellence of inspirations of the authentic fragrance they are inspired by. I can now delve into the wealth of awesome fragrances I would never been able to have experienced otherwise. By my count, I have about 50 more Alexandria fragrances to get travel samples of so i can limit which of them I want to buy full bottles of. Italian Caramel will definitely be one of them!
I know I should wait for the season to change and temperatures to drop, but I can’t…I love Italian Caramel too much to wait! I receive compliments every time I wear it! For true gourmand lovers, it doesn’t get better than this beauty!
Okay. as I write this review I want to keep readers in mind that my favorite scents are: Creed Aventus, Creed Silver Mountain Water, YSL Tuxedo and Bacarrat Rouge 540. All those scents are different, but I always find myself trying to venture out and add more to my collection that have staying power. Italian Caramel (Xerjoff Italica inspired) is an insanely gifted fragrance. It is very complex and to my nose one of the best 5 fragrances I've ever smelled. I'm blown away by the projection and it's something that immediately wears well. I personally like to buy the inspiration off Alexandria Fragrances and if I like the sample enough, I'll buy a big bottle of the authentic and keep buying AF version to keep the authentic bottle as long as possible. I bought the original today, and although the original is a little different (even better), the AF version is so very good that owning both is a must for me. This is a SMASH. Alexandria got it right with this one! I NEVER say blind buy anything, but I'm not sure how you can be disappointed with this scent unless you want 100% of the original. In my opinion this is about 85% of the original at opening and about 100% of the original at dry down. This is some insane juice! The best gourmand ever.
