Etro Gomma eau de cologne


Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Thursday, August 31, 2006 12:52 AM (Eastern)

Okay, I had to try at least one of them tonight. :) This is from the Etro site:

"Gomma - rubber - is bitter, spicy, and unquestionably virile."

Oops.

Head notes: Sicilian citrus fruits, artemisia
Heart notes: jasmine, spices
Base notes: amber, leather

I was fully prepared to not like this at first sniff. Why? Well I've read that a lot about Etro fragrances. And either it grows on you or it doesn't.

I can say it's not a bad fragrance even at first sniff. A bad fragrance, I run to wash off my skin. This is just a really odd scent. It's a little bit sweet...I definitely get the jasmine or something floral about it. And it's definitely leather but not sweet-leather. It smells sort of like a leather coat but sweeter. I will go so far tonight to say it's like a leather coat with some perfume in it. Kind of neat actually.

Too soon to write a review of any sort; these are just initial thoughts.
