Raving is the last of the three Etro Benetroessere trio. It's described on the site as sensual, it temps you to yield to the thrill of the senses and to the most intense sensations to enhance the quality of life.
The seductive, pervasive notes of exotic woods and Papua mace emerge in this woodsy, spicy fragrance.
Top: orange, tangerine, petit grain
Middle: Papua mace, rose, patchouli
Bottom: musk, vanilla
This is a dry spicy fragrance with hints of patchouli and musk. It's not too dry however as the sweetness of the orange and vanilla make it lighter. When it's first sprayed, it makes me sneeze so it could be too much for those with a sensitive nose.
I adore spicy fragrances and this is without a doubt my favorite of the three in this collection. It's not too heavy that it can't be worn in warmer weather but it's not too light that that one wouldn't notice it in colder weather. It's just perfect. It does go on quite heavy but seems to fade over the day and meets an area of perfection.
Raving retailed for $60 but can be found for around $50 or less.
