Fragrance Of The Month June 2016



Hello again Beautynistas and Suavies! We hope that you’ve been enjoying our picks for The Makeup Examiner’s Fragrance Of The Month feature. So, we’ve been fussing about Humidgeddon and what do you know … we end up with a bit of a chilly snap! Seriously? Since when is it supposed to be 56°F in June in the Northeastern USA? We know … fuss when it’s too cold, fuss when it’s too hot … first world problems. We digress.

Thinking of Summer 2016 and the sensuality that the season offers, we look to Laura Biagiotti for Fragrance Of The Month June 2016 - Blu di Roma Donna for the ladies and Blu di Roma Uomo for the gents! The inspiration for the fragrance paring is the city of Rome. Blu di Roma fragrances are meant to be contemporary, fresh and light inspired by the blue nuances of the roman summer and the charm of an adventure in the city that invites you to dream of a never-ending holiday.

We have to share with you that our editor has an odd ancestry (her tribe hails from all over the world, including Rome) and she tends to get sentimental (you readers know this from other FOM picks) -- too sentimental with an odd attachment to New Zealand that, as far as we know, doesn’t have anything to do with her tribe.  Okay, we digress yet again … but if anyone can answer why Yvonne is so attached to NZ, please email us! Moving on …



Blu di Roma Donna (€ 167.60 - approx. $187 USD - 100ml) was launched in 2014 and has a Floral Fruity theme. The scent opens with a sweet, fruity aroma that gives way to the dominant rose, which seems to remain at drydown with an exquisite mix of patchouli. Blu di Roma Donna is fresh and inviting and reminds us of a truly feminine scent. Seasons: Warmer Months; Sillage: 3-Moderate; Longevity: 4-Long Lasting; Bottling-5

Blu di Roma Uomo (€ 159.60 - approx. $177 USD - 100ml), also launched in 2014, is a Woody Aquatic. This is a beautiful summer scent -- fresh, sexy and reminds us of the endless summer night of romance. The scent opens with the fresh citrus of Italian Lemon that gives way to a rapture of aquatic freshness and evolves into a woody feel, with drydown leaving a fresh and crisp fragrance that is neither over- or underwhelming. Blu di Roma Uomo is what we want our men to smell like in the summer. Seasons: Warmer Months; Sillage: 3-Moderate; Longevity: 4-Long Lasting; Bottling-5
