Vento nel Vento Fragrance Reviews

I have to say I am jealous of literally everyone else who wrote a review or voted notes on this. My expectations were high based on that, but the peony overpowers everything else on my skin and never goes away. The sweetness combined with the floral, makes this too feminine for me. Must just be my skin, Glad everyone else is enjoying, though.

Bois 1920 Vento nel Vento is a very good,resinous,sweet/salty oud/ambergris fragrance. First hits are of a spicy elemi note. Mid notes are a sweet, musky incense like olibanum which lasts quite a while and then the oud and ambergris dry down starts creeping in along with a woody benzoin and labdanum combination. I dont know if the ambergris is natural or not but it definitely has a thick salty, musky tang which smells great. Projection on me is moderate, I can smell it wafting off me but does not seem to fill a room or anything like that. Longevity is around 5-6 hour mark with 2-3 sprays which is fine. I like this one quite a bit so far. Good quality ingredients and blended quite nicely. If you are looking for a sweet incense oud n ambergris in a fragrance, this is one of the better ones I have smelled. very nice.

Upfront you get a Real Patchouly, Relativamente Rosso kind of a feel from what I think is cinnamon, nutmeg, or even ginger-the spices (Frankincense) lovely and the Pink Pepper. The Real Patchouly/Relativamente Rosso vibe leaves and after some time the Patchouli, Sandalwood, Oud, and Ambergris comes through quite vividly with great projection.

As the fragrance dries down, you are presented with the additive of Benzoin and Labdanum which gives off this smoky woodsy menthol vibe that's surprisingly nice. Although semi-sweet, Vento nel Vento is less sweet than Real Patchouly and/or Relativamente Rosso; there are nuances that allude to the above-mentioned fragrances.

Overall, a nice fragrance; if you combine 1920 Extreme's menthol-ish-ness with Real Patchouly's sugary-ish-ness and a dab of Vetiver Ambrato's-powdery-ish-ness you will get this powdery very slightly sweet, smoky woodsy menthol, peppery cinnamony spiced fragrance......=Vento nel Vento.

In the end, nothing to get extremely excited about but a great fragrance nonetheless!!!!

VERY similar to Bois d'Encens but sweeter. More wearable. I find Bois d'Encens a scent to wear whilst mediating and Vento a scent to wear for simple enjoyment.

LOTS of resins of the creamy, warm variety. Blended beautifully with musks, animalic notes, woods and soft, never over-done peppers/spices. Patchouli... barely noticeable.

This is a beautiful, calm and serene incense/resin fragrance. I collect incense fumes because they remind me of my childhood spent in eastern europe going to church- being surrounded by incredible architecture, stained glass windows, cold stone and intricately carved figures as incense fills the air to almost a suffocating degree. Even though I am non-religious, these memories fill me with warmth, comfort and love.

Vento nel Vento is a hidden gem that many people don't know about and it's one that is worth the price. It's also part of a limited collection and can be found reasonably priced on eBay. I would recommend it to anyone that loves resins or incense. If you're like me and hate sandalwood, you'd be surprised to find that you cannot detect the sandalwood in this scent. If you hate patchouli, you won't detect it either.

Vento nel Vento begins with a sweet amber and resinous incense smell draped in oud and ambergris that gives off a slightly animalic, slightly metallic scent. After a couple of hours the metallic scent goes away as it becomes more earthy and musky yet retains its wonderfully ambery resinous smell. I love the incense as it rises off my skin. This is a smooth and warm perfume that I can even wear in 80 degree weather like today.

UPDATE: I made a huge mistake before trying to wear this in hot weather. Recently, I wore this while I was in Ireland traveling around the island through the coolness of the countryside, seeing lots of grass, trees, and sheep. This was the perfect fragrance for the 40 and 50 degree weather. There was no metallic smell, only an earthy, animalic, amber scent that grounded me and made me feel one with my surroundings. What a difference, I went from liking this to loving this and am now looking for a FB.

This is magic in a bottle.
While this was not love at first sniff for me , there is something in this bottle that is simply magical. It is like a cloud of resins and frankinsese and churchy resins that simply make the person inhaling it feel more spiritual , more detached of worldly issues . My first impression of it was that it's leaning towards masculine but really it is not.... Once it develops the top notes , along with the minuscule dose of oud dissipate ... And then you are left with a heavenly Christian orthodox monastery scent....one of those nested high up in the mountains of Europe where the air is so fresh it is hard to breath and coniferous woods' aroma is strongly mixing with the holly resins and Insense being burnt during special liturgical masses .
It is a soul cleansing experience .
Lasting power and silage are very good . Not feminine, nor sexy or elegant. Just beautiful.
If anyone has a bottle they don't want, contact me. I am in love with this one, thanks prada48 for such an amazing swap !
Now I want to bathe in it so I need more ! People with unwanted bottles, pm me me !

I smell a little pepper and floral notes. Amber Gris and resins. Maybe some Oud. But it's subtle. Quality ingredients. Smells rich. I love this resiny scent. It smells juicy to me.

Edit: I smell Oud at the top, which smells musty and like an old book shelf full of books. In 15mins it's gone.

Edit (again). Some days this just doesn't work on me. Other days it's unbelievably good. It's very temperamental.

Starts off with a rich sandalwood then patchouli, good quality, then a fleeting boozey note as the amber and resins come in and the scent warms. I love the frankincense which is a favourite note of mine. This is a warm, ambery-woody incense, beautifully made and projecting strongly. Walking on the beach in a strong northerly wind, there was still a cloud of this around me! You don't need to apply much at all. Long lasting, dries down to a velvety smooth benzoin scent with those wood and amber notes. No edges to it, excellent quality. Five stars from me, on the list of full-bottle-worthy must-haves!

To echo previous reviews: a deep, rich, resinous fragrance. Begins quite sweet with pink pepper, frankincense then shows and it settles into a warm envelope, deep and thick. Possibly slightly more feminine if I had to swing it either way but otherwise ideal for both sexes.

Smells expensive, which it is, but definitely worthy of it!

An ode to benzoin & frankincense! A beautiful balsamic, resin fragrance in all it's glory! Intoxicating from opening to dry down. Thick, dense & rich potion with strong longevity & moderate sillage, which is perfect! On me, it never becomes sweet. The only thing I can see softening the mix is an extremely delicate vanilla like scent coming from benzoin with just the perfect balance of dryness and deepness. Resinous without being smoky.

To me, this is a very good alternative to Myrrhe Impériale from Armani Privé. I really love Myrrhe Impériale but the sweetness is a little too much, for my taste, for a balsamic fragrance.
I am impressed so far with what I have tested from Bois 1920 as for quality. Expensive but worth every penny!

Vento nel Vento in a few words... resinous warmth!

7 hours ago: My first impression of Vento nel Vento (Wind in the Wind) was very touching. This fragrance pinpoints where I have soft spots for scents! Labdanum, licorice, balmy notes, incense and rare woods for sure.

The mild spicy-balsamic opening reminded me of a sort of compound herbal tea and evoked pleasant memories of my childhood winters. Whole combination is like those memories; deep and comforting. Cozy as Dychotomous mentioned. I think of VnV as if it's a person I just met but seems very sedate and trusty that I feel familiar with and bet would be a close friend to me.

Can't help sniffing my arm right now. I need to spend more time with this for a proper review.

"What a dilemma"
This fragrance to me is very cozy, sensual and cuddly yet in a mature way. It's another one of the good gourmands out there. To me this scents reminds me of a spicy incense graham cracker type of character just to give you a slight impression of what you may expect. It's deep and has many dimension / levels. Whenever I spray it It stills my thoughts and I just feel like crawling in bed and keep sniffing my arms. And I tell you it never gets boring, for I keep sniffing my arms as if I sniff long enough there might be a surprise waiting for me haha. I know it's weird but that's how interesting it is, I keep sniffing it and every time I'm like "wait a minute what is this scent".
The longevity on this is very good, on my skin easily 8 hours. Projection, I actually still need to review that. To me this is the perfect scent to wear whenever you are cuddling with someone.
I really love this scent. However I still do not know If I really like it for myself to personally wear outside the house or just something I'd love to smell on someone else. And that's where my dilemma wanders.
Just as an FYI, to my nose Vento Nel Vento smells quite similar to Calling Al Angels from April Aromatics. They are not copy of each other but the uncanny resemblance is there.

I'll start where Vanessa was ending. I went to MiN NY to purchase Marocain. Ended up getting Lubin EDP, BUT before that happened, I was lead to Vento Nel Vento as the alternative to Marocain. I took the card home as I forgot to get THAT sample. Well I have a sample NOW, and I'm about to buy a 10ml decant, since 2 sprays is ALL you need. I just cant stop sniffin it. I just sampled before I'm about to step in the shower and I hope I can't wash it off....since I'm gonna spray for bed. The cost IS a concern right NOW, but the rarity of it makes it worth the price. It's a BUY for me. Decant for now. RaJuR real deep kool on the web.

I was given a sample of this from MiN when I recently ordered a fragrance, and I saw that patchouli is one of the ingredients in Vento nel Vento and thought uh-oh...usually if patchouli is in a scent that I wear, it takes over everything and I smell like a head shop from the 1970s. I am relieved to say that it threatened to come out and engulf, at the beginning, but then changed its mind and did not. Patchouli gracefully accepted its role as a support player, in the cast of character ingredients that make up this delightful fragrance. I smelled a little oud, some spice, some sweetness and the patchouli was faint, but enough to give Vento the spine it needed to stay with me for the day. I was very impressed. It becomes sweeter throughout the day, almost like an incense that you would burn on a special occasion; when first applied it is more green woods/spice on my skin. At one point, about four hours after I put it on, I was at school and found out that in order to be admitted to the chemistry classes that I need to complete my Biology minor, I will have to take precalculus. I felt my temperature go up in a flush, and the most wonderful puff of Vento nel Vento wafted up from inside my clothes and into my face, and calmed me down (I have math anxiety)! Bonus! Perhaps this lovely perfume is good for math anxiety, or any anxiety, eh? This fragrance has a very nice staying power on the skin, and it is present, but not loud. I think I could wear this almost every day, if I wanted; I wouldn't heavily spray it on, though. The only thing holding me back from buying this right now is the price ($236). In fact, I wish I had found out about this fragrance first, instead of the Desert Marocain/Tauer that I purchased and with it, received Vento as a sample. I am unfamiliar with Bois 1920 so I guess their line slipped past me without my noticing. I'll put Vento nel Vento on my holiday wish list.

This fragrance opens up with a a floral spicy tone of peony, elemi and pink pepper. then the incense and liquorice spark up with a hint of musk leaving the dry down with soft woody impression of sandalwood, patchouli and oud wood with touch of amber, benzoin and labdanum.
