Bellodgia going mainstream = Più Bellodgia

Più BellodgiaCarnation? Where is the carnation?

There will always be loads of people who associate the scent of carnations with an old fashioned, granny smell. Maybe because it is not a fragrance that comes up in a lot of modern, hip perfumes.

I can live with that. I adore everything carnation and I have cherished Bellodgia for a long time. This now, the Più Bellodgia, is the re-vamped version – the modern take on the classic from 1927.

The ingredients sound similar, there is carnation, rose, jasmine and some lily of the valley, with cloves and woods to follow on – yet it starts and stays a lot fresher, lighter and much more generic in my opinion. It’s a fresh flowery/woody mix missing a lot of the wonderful spicy sweetness which is basically the heart of the ‘old’ Bellodgia. Più Bellodgia is not a bad fragrance over all – but for something with ‘Bellodgia’ in the name I would have expected something more. It might be a different experience for someone who hasn’t met the classic Bellodgia beforehand, but I have to say: If you like carnation, I suggest to try the ‘real’ Bellodgia.
