I love Python by Trussardi. I love its name too. Python, makes me think of the soft feeling of snakeskin that was shedded by its host for about a week. When I was a curious child, I visited my grandmother in Maryland, whose home was an old Victorian farmhouse surrounded by farm land. There were several instances where I would come across pieces of sheeded snake skin around the yard, especially inside an old shed. I would pick these up and feel their crinkly texture, sometimes smell them, but they always felt very soft and fragile. I would keep these scraps inside of an old cardboard box. I remember my grandmother had put away the box until the next summer visit. She brought it out for me and asked if I wanted to hunt the yard for some snake skin to add to my collection. I opened the box and the smell of the skins wafted up to my nose. I recall that it smelled a lot like human hair. Now, enough of that trip down memory lane...and back to the perfume.

I find Python to be a nice, soft and cuddly perfume. It starts out with nose tickling citrus notes and gives way to a velvety base of balsamic vanilla and sweet sandalwood. It also has what I call a "fuzzy" note, which makes me think of burying my face into a soft cashmere sweater. The way the silken fibres brush against my skin, makes me feel warm and comfortable. Spraying Python on my skin envelopes my body in a warm, fuzzy cocoon. I find that after the inital citric blast, the perfume remains more of a skin scent rather than a huge sillage bomb. Other "fuzzy" perfumes in my wardrobe are: Cashmere Mist by Donna Karan, Ambre Gris by Balmain and Cruel Gardenia by Guerlain.
