UPDATE : This is so lovely I cannot WAIT to get my hands on a bottle . After my whine-fest , you can see down on the comments , that Hilde herself posted !!
But that isn't why I want a bottle . Vecchi Rosetti is a skin scent , in that it stays very close , but forever...hours and hours after applying I can still smell traces of this . Faint powdery make-up , freshly waxed wood floors ...dance classes when I was a young girl ...
Vecchi Rosetti was created as an atmospheric scent , to recreate the scent of the theatre , it's waxed wood floors and stage make-up . These are two of my favorite accords , so imagine my excitement at sniffing this when I got to NYC . You have heard about the weather that Friday...pouring rain !!
Neither rain nor lack of sleep was going to keep me from finding Vecchi Rosetti.....I trudged all the way over to Chelsea to New London Pharmacy to sniff this...
Who hired that woman behind the counter and who thought there was room to sell expensive exclusive fragrances in there ?? My experience was not good . Someone needs to tell
Ms Soliani to take her fragrances elsewhere .
Vecchi Rosetti out of the bottle and on the strip didn't smell like much at all...I sniffed around a little , went up and down the aisles looking at the unusual product lines they carry...waiting for a samp which I never got . ( Later , back at my hotel , Vecchi Rosetti had bloomed into exactly what I expected , beautiful soft and woody, and I want 2 bottles...)
So I left in the pouring rain and walked down to the village , only to be cold shouldered by the gents at Aedes again . None of these people cared about the effort I made to check out their "Exclusive " products .
Nor did the Chanel people at Saks...
"We don't sample Beige because of it's limited distribtion..."
Again I say
So I voted with my pocketbook and didn't buy a damn thing .
I feel so much better now .
