Tristano Onofri by Tristano Onofri

Tristano Onofri Femme by Tristano Onofri: launched in 1990. This is the feminine counterpart fragrance to Tristano Onofri Homme released a year before in 1989.

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a chypre floral fragrance for women, though I would have classified this as a spicy floral oriental.
  • Top notes: bergamot, nutmeg, mandarin orange, basil and orange blossom
  • Heart notes: iris, jasmine, rose, tuberose and labdanum
  • Base notes: sandalwood, musk, ambergris, oak moss, vetiver, patchouli and vanilla
I am unfamiliar with this fragrance. I am not sure if there is a slight turned top note or if it may just be the spicy herbal top notes of basil and nutmeg. I think this is a beautiful fragrance. Very similar in the vein of orientals such as Youth Dew, Cinnabar, Opium and the original Guess perfume from 1990. It is very long lasting and is definitely a high quality perfume.

Available as Eau de Parfum.

Presented in an elegant rectangular shaped satin glass bottle molded with softly molded closed pleats on the sides. The  white frosted plastic stopper is molded as a pleat of material that falls open in graceful folds, a nod to the fashion designer.

This fragrance has been discontinued for years and can be very hard to find.
