    by Maria Candida Gentile

    In Rome the door of Vittorio Piazza is one of the entrances of the Palombara Villa, where the Marquis Massimiliano conducted clandestine meetings during the Middle Ages dedicated to alchemy. On the door one can still read “the seed from which was born our flower, cannot be found it the markets", meaning alchemy was a science known only to a secret group of scholars and practitioners.
    On the same door it is written "the Hesperides dragon hides the entrance of the magic garden”. This dragon was depicted next to a huge Dracaena tree; the tree of the dragon.
    The distinctiveness of the Dracaena tree is that it produces a sap which changes color when one puts it on the skin; it becomes red, hence its name: dragon blood or Cinabre.

    Notes: Ginger and black pepper, Rose Baies, Splendens Rose, Moroccan Rose, Benzoin, Vanilla, Opoponax

    1. Bravissima, signora Gentile! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 23rd Jan 2021

      A great take on the amber-rose olfactory theme, with an interesting aromatic ginger note paired with pepper and balmy rose. I love its creamy and ambery muskiness as well as the combination of myrrh, amber and vanilla. A wonderful unisex perfume!

    2. Gourmand, sugar-and-spice rose. 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 6th Jun 2016

      I usually hate spice + rose, but this fragrance is beautiful. It smells of dried roses dipped in powdered sugar and dusted with spices (actually reminds me of cinnamon sugar somehow). Sweet, lovely and soft, but lasts all day and has good throw on me.

    3. Makes me feel beautiful 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 3rd Mar 2015

      Cinabre is all about happiness for me. Cheerful ginger up top, bautiful, smooth, powdery rose (reminds me of lipsticks my grandmother had)in the heart and chewy sweet benzoin base. And it puts a smile on my face all day long.

    4. Stunning spicy rose scent 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 16th Jul 2014

      Cinabre is a beauty. Gorgeous deep spicy rose. This scent has great longevity and sillage. Perfect for evening.

    5. Gorgeous fragrance 5 Star Review

      I was given a sample by a friend and fell head over heels for the Maria Candida Gentile line. Cinabre is a gorgeous candied slightly spicy gourmand rose on me ....I adore this fragrance
