Inspired by the Roman senator Marcus Junius Brutus who was known for his lack of eloquence, the assassination of Julius Caesar and of being a stoic man. Brutus plays on contradictions – it is expected to be loud and brash yet has soft and gentle tones. As it settles, Brutus softens from a rich Patchouli based scent to a soft, almost powdery floral. It may be loud to begin with but stay tuned because this is a perfume that tricks you, a scent that takes an unexpected turn!
HOW IT WEARS
All of the Orto Parisi fragrances are parfum extract so last up to 24 hours on the skin – they are strong and long lasting! Brutus is probably the gentlest in the Orto Parisi collection, however it wears beautifully and lasts a long time while still having strong projection. This scent wears a little closer to the skin than some of the others in the Orto Parisi range – an earthy yet fresh fragrance with the softness of resins.
We actually love the surprising softness of Brutus. We can definitely get the Patchouli note in there that are warm and earthy, then a slight sparkle of citrus with a soft powdery, woody tone in the base. A gorgeous scent on the skin and a lovely fragrance for any Patchouli lovers out there.
ABOUT THE BRAND
“The parts of the body that carry more smell are those where more soul is collected. The strong smells have become unpleasant to us, because the excess of soul is intolerable to the extent that our innate animalism is repressed and breaking from civilization. This project is my garden I have planted, fertilized, cultivated, and harvested. Orto Parisi states that our body is experienced like a garden, and its smells are a true mirror of our soul.” The Nose, Alessandro Gualtieri. The perfume collection inspired by bodily scents, Alessandro takes a no holds approach to fragrance. He is unapologetic in his challenging fragrance line –he creates an experience with his fragrances. The Orto Parisi collection has an animalic, undeniably dirty take on scent that is at the same time alluring and hard to resist. Love it or hate it, Orto Parisi makes an impact and challenges the status quo of the fragrance world.
