Aedes de Venustas Eau de Parfum ( Signature )

Rhubarb, Vetiver, Red Berries, Tomato Leaf, Incense, Green Apple, Hazelnut, Honeysuckle.

Beautiful bottle and hefty price point is very enticing to some folks. As we know, there are more expensive fragrances than this, but I think juice costing over $2 per ml. is subject to a bit more scrutiny than most.

Duchaufour is a smooth operator and whether or not his creations float your boat, he surely has that something special in his finished products. Signature doesn't stray from that approach and his implementation of incense is commendable.

Personally, I like this recent release as I did the former. The Incense note plays a dominant role on my skin and that can either be chalked up to sensitivity or chemistry.

The fruit notes are a nice accent. They're not standout notes, but there's a leafy quality to assist the earth tone which seems to waft around the core of Incense. The Incense is cold, unlit and fairly lucid. The vetiver is tuned perfectly and couldn't compliment the smokeless Incense more admirably. With the exception of the first few minutes, Signature is very linear, yet dense and sans the usual heaviness.

Aedes de Venustas Signature is an extremely shared fragrance. It "feels" like it would excel in cooler temperatures, but we all know that we wear what we want, when we want. I guess the real question is if this particular scent is exceptional and worth the price point?

For me, I think it's a very good perfume. It isn't groundbreaking, nor does it grab the reigns of your heart. It's too aloof for that. It's a quality creation that possesses good projection and commendable longevity.

It is rather expensive, but in the big picture it's superior to others costing as much or more. So, with that mindset, I'd have to say that it is worth the money, depending upon if you thoroughly enjoy the samplings. Thumbs up from Aromi for Aedes de Venustas Signature and props ( once again ) to Duchaufour.
