This is effing WEIRD. I love amber. It starts out like an amber then is like a rotting amber gone bad mixed with semen, used cooking oil and smoke. A kitchen fire.

amber, smoke, balsamic; sour sharp scent like heavy cumin and cooking oil

Official notes
Top: May rose absolute, Sugar touch, Incense
Heart: Everlasting resinoid, Davana, Sandalwood
Dry down: Black amber, Vanilla, Vetiver, Patchouli

I wish I got some rose from this. And I am confused by sugar being listed in the opening. Literally all I am getting from the opening is a harsh smoke. I can't help but think of barbecues, not a burning incense stick. When the smokiness finally calms down it gradually gets more and more sweet. Like a nice burnt sweet incense stick. I love it at this point, but the opening is a big no for me.

A wonderful fragrance!! A bit of a dark kind of boozy sweetness that I get from the Sugar (like caramel from a candy apple sort of sweetness); gentlemen wear at your own risk, whoever smells this on you will salivate from the mouth and may attack-you have been warned. The sugar is followed by a spicy Frankincense. Relativamente Rosso gives off a nice Sandalwood, Woodsy, Smokey mixture that's really really nice. In the end this all comes together with the Vanilla and Vetiver that reminds me of Real Patchouly yet with more sweetness and smokiness.

Projects immensely!
Longevity is about 12+hours!
Sillage is outstanding!
Overall, this is a great fragrance to have in your wardrobe.

As mention in my review of Real Patchouly, you don't need to have Real Patchouly if you have this already!!

We sit facing each other as a wild fire burns between us, the smoke tracing our dreams in greys across the dazzlingly painted sky. Our brilliant tales consuming more oxygen than may be present in the atmosphere - tales of daring and romance, of flight and fancy, of the endless possibilities this life could hold. Our rosy cheeks streaked in the ash of the furiously crackling fire - sweet smiles are shared as we wipe away the ashes of times long since passed. We have always been wild at heart...we had just forgotten it somewhere along the way. We shared our glorious tales for many hours before surrendering to the night - the sweetest dreams were beckoning. My dreams transport me to an immense lake lapping it's freezing waters onto the shore where I bathe in the warmth of a crimson sun. The toasted beauty of immortelle is carried on a cool wind as the wood from the sandalwood surrounding the lake lends it's boozy scent to the crisp air. The sun brings the world to life with its rich, caramel and amber waves coating all it touches in a chocolate and velvet. You are lost in its luxurious waves of sensual delights. The first light of dawn wakes you as does the crackling of fire warming a hearty breakfast. A new adventure awaits, but for now you sit, somewhere between wake and dream, and earnestly ask your companion, "what did you dream of?"

Day 76 - Of grandeur
Listening to: Blackbird - Brand New Start

Notes: I am beginning to think Bois 1920's Art Collection was made just for me. This is the second I purchased in the series (out of 5 and one is basically unavailable to me) and I am floored by the beauty it contains. This and Dolce di Giorno are 'eyes rolling into the back of your head' delicious...I don't know how they do it, but these are exquisitely sensual experiences in a bottle! Relativamente open with a deeply moving and surrealistic campfire/smoke note - I don't know how it's even possible to make a campfire sexy, but they did it! The campfire note (likely achieved with a modified olibanum accord) definitely contains a wild rose clashing against an ashy saccharine note - this actually lasts around an hour or two on my skin. The campfire slowly dies out and allows the rich and syrupy scent of immortelle combine with a creamy sandalwood and a chocolate or orris, amber, and musk. This phase lasts for five or six hours before a slight transition to a slightly drier and quieter patchouli and oak mixed with the velvety orris and vanilla...simply to die for! This, much like Dolce di Giorno, would be magic on a woman's skin! I don't know why there aren't more people wearing these fumes! If you'd like a 10 hour break from the monotony of life, pick up this magic potion and ride it out!

This is like a better version on Profumi Del Forte Ambra Mediterranea. Lasts forever too.

What a gorgeous piece of work by Bois 1920 - this incense is not as dry and bitter as many "church" incenses, it's more like a mischievous closet pagan altarboy snuck a handful of Nag Champa into the mass censer. It's a gorgeous combination of religion and magic, beautifully balanced between dry and sweet. I bought a full 3.4 bottle of it within minutes of sampling it, absolutely love at first sniff. If you're worried that the olibanum will be too astringent, don't be. This is pure velvet. I'm completely smitten.

I have a very small hand-mixed bottle of a mashup I call "Un Crime d'Avignon" - I mixed Un Crime Exotique (before it was discontinued, don't kill me) with CdG Avignon. I have been nursing it along for years, wearing it strictly on a "break glass in case of emergency" basis because there are perhaps 4 ml remaining. Relativamente Rosso is much like that mashup only even better. More tuned, and Avignon is pretty aggro.

Becomes really QUITE dry on the drydown on me, like almost papery/dusty. It doesn't do that quite so aridly when sprayed directly on clothing, where it sustains its opening indefinitely instead of cycling to a fairly dusty conclusion.

sweet henna! kind of awful to be honest as i smell the henna sharply right after few seconds away from the top note!
i guess the sharp ambergris with sugar canes makes the effect of that unpleasant henna, and maybe with the help of olibanum. not for me nope.

Edit (8th February 2017) after around 17 months I kind of like what I smell now! The only thing that kind of disturbs me is the sugar note, the henna factor is quite impressive somehow with the ambergris. It became kind of impressive. Only if there is a 30ml or 50ml beside this.

The rose vanishes as soon as I put the fragrance on my skin, which is not a bad thing. Very nice, powdery, sweet woody scent, definitively one of the best Bois 1920 scent so far.

It smells exactly like sugar-coated fennel seeds, we here call it "Mukhwas", a type of mouth freshener. Tried it twice, once on skin and 2nd on paper tester, same result! Quite surprised to see, fennel is not included in the Notes pyramid!!!

Sweet, sugary, floral, woody-incense fragrance. Delicious gourmand mixed with incense, very well done. You really have to like your fragrances sweet to appreciate it.

Amazing unisex, sweet, woody incense perfume, very loud and expressive, and one of the most long lasting perfumes I have ever tried.

The composition opens with a sweet rose note. However, Relativemente Rosso is everything but a rose perfume. The floweriness fades away very quickly and gives way to the smoke and the woodiness, which represent the character of this perfume. It's also a bit powdery due to immortelle, I suppose. The sandalwood also has a powdery touch. I'm no expert in raw materials, but here the sandalwood note smells very real and authentic, like in the older version of Samsara, opposed to the papery feel of the synthetic sandal.

The base is still woody, with prominent ambergris and its savory saltiness, which combines lovely with the olibanum (which is still there) and the woods. I don't get any patchouli, but do feel vetiver, which makes the drydown a bit closer to the traditionally masculine feel.

RR lasts, and lasts, and lasts... I don't know how long. Too long! I wonder who will ever need such a big bottle of it. I wish there were smaller (and cheaper!) bottles.

Amazing stuff, highly recommended to those who appreciate sandalwood and incense perfumes and aren't afraid of sweetness (which is not overbearing here at all, and there is no separate vanilla note, just a drop of sweetness in the sea of woods and smoke).

again ... the note breakdown is wrong but this is a sweet incense fragrance
with which overpowers the other notes in the beginning but then an amazing soft smoky sweet drydown that you will keep smelling for hours i sprayed this at around 6pm and i could smell it the next morning.
