Eau d'Italie Mystic Sunset by Eau d'Italie

Italian Summers and La Dolce Vita, it's the stuff of movies and yes, perfume. Eau d'Italie takes us there with their beautiful creations and their newest scent Mystic Sunset, draws us into the warm evening near the Tyrrhenian Sea. 

Eau d'Italie is the fragrance line from the family behind the legendary Le Sirenuse Positano hotel in Italy. I remember Eau d'Italie well from years back when I went to NYC on sniffing excursions. It has been some time since I visited with the line and they recently revamped their look. 

Inspired by the setting sun over Positano's bay and created by perfumer Marie Salamagne, the heavy weighted glass bottle holds the scent of cassis (blackcurrant), osmanthus, cane sugar, saffron, jasmine and cedar. 

I am not always a fan of cassis, it depends. Here I really like it, as it's not too sweet or overdone. More the fresh fruit that's not overripe, maybe even a little tart. The cane sugar also doesn't make it too sweet but is just enough. The light florals are barely there and mix nicely while the saffron keeps it all a little dry. The cedar definitely shows up as it dries down but in no way overwhelms the rest of the scent.

Mystic Sunset is sunny, calm, easy to wear and subtly sultry. Not shy but not too bold it takes you away without leaving your yard. Can't get to Italy? Go there via scent.
