Dilmun by Lorenzo Villoresi opens with an explosion of fresh citrus and continues quickly into a heart of neroli. In the base vanilla, resins and aromatic wood for warmth.
Dilmun is the paradise of ancient Mesopotamia, where the sun shines and stories are told.
Quote from review from Now Smell This: “Dilmun opens on bright, sweet citrus and orange blossom tinged with green. Despite the sweetness it is a bit sharp until it settles: after that it is very soft, and as it drys down it gets warmer and richer. It is neither sheer nor heavy, but somewhere in between.
It strikes a perfect balance between sweet and dry, depth and clarity. Orange blossom and neroli are among my favorite fragrance notes, and they ring out clear and true to the end.”
