Any port in a storm…? Escale a Portofino by Dior The Perfumed Dandy’s Scent Today 

IMG_20130819_085719 (1)

A dip in the azure sea of the picturesque coast of Italy?

Or a flush of industrial bathroom detergent?

For such an apparently innocuous sounding scent, this one seems to inspire quite violent reactions.

Well, one shall just have to wait and see what it does on The Dandy!

The opportunity remains to choose other perfumes to be placed on The Dandy’s skin when The Hit Parade returns in the autumn.

If you would like to thrust forward a fragrance for future fame simply visit ‘Suggest and old scent or recommend a new one’ and leave your recommendation there.

Have an especially fragrant day!

The Perfumed Dandy.

    Dear Dandy,

    I love Dior Portofino. Why you say is like a detergent?
    Unfortunately someone borrowed this and never seen anymore, so I have to buy another one.

      Oh, no… The Dandy has not said that Portofino is like detergent. In fact, I haven’t said anything yet, I was merely quoting what others have mentioned to me when I revealed what I was wearing today!!
      My review will follow shortly.
      Yours ever

    I love that fragrance. Enjoy the week, Mr. D.

  3. Heh, a friend of mine would definitely consider it a Bio-hazard. She wasn’t a fan of any of the Escales. I have to admit, I was very disappointed myself when I reviewed them. I think I’ve been spoiled by the beauty of the Dior Privé line. 😦

      They do seem to divide, quite an achievement for apparently anodyne and amiable perfumes.
      Oh, how I know what you mean about the Prive range! There are so many delicious fragrances in there, if it weren’t for budgetary constraints I’d have the bulk, if not the lot (for completeness’ sake).
      Yours ever
