10 Corso Como

10 Corso Como

Yesterday we hit a high of 105 degrees, the highest ever recorded for yesterday's date. It's going to be a long hot summer! This morning I decided to wear Roses Enchantees again! The more I wear it, the more I like it. Don't try layering Roses Enchantees with Creed's Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare as FdTRB wins out in the end and overpowers it. I think the love affair with FdTRB is ending because the last two times I've sprayed it. Maybe I just need a break from it, I'm sure in the summer I'll have changed my mind.

I'm testing 10 Corso Como on my arm tonight. According to Luckyscent, the notes in this fragrance are: sandalwood, frankincense, musk, rose, geranium, vetiver and rare Malay oud wood oil.

It's not really floral on me, more of a woody, smoky, musky fragrance. At first I wasn't sure I liked this one but it has since grown on me.

It is light enough to be worn as a year round as an evening fragrance but I think it would be even better in colder months as an all day fragrance.

It retails for $60/1.7 oz. and $90/3.4 oz. at Beautyhabit and Luckyscent.

I love this perfume though I cannot wear this any longer - it was a strange phase in my life when I fell for it and do not wish to be reminded!

I'm so on the fence on this one. I like it, kind of, but it's too...growly for me. Like a swath of sandpaper on my skin. Nice, and almost velvety, but it's missing something. Or maybe it's too much of something. I can't decide! Innyhoo, yet another scent that makes me extol the wonders of decants vs full bottles.
It seems I should LOVE 10 CC based on the notes, but eh, it's kind of perfumey/sharp on me. Sigh.
I expected this to be more woody as people were comparing it to Tam Dao. 10 CC, you are no Tam Dao!
