Pandolfo V by Canto Perfume. Pandolfo Malatesta was a brilliant military leader in 15th century Italy.
The fragrance Pandolfo V is named for him as it tries to capture the strength and power of the man. It opens with top notes of clary sage, rose, and mastic resin. This is a bright and sparkling beginning to the fragrance. The heart is sharper and more intense with middle notes of resins and woody notes. The dry down is earthy with base notes of ambergris, musk, and patchouli. This oriental
floral was introduced in 2020 by nose Paolo Terenzi.
The Italian perfume house, V Canto, takes its inspiration from the Quinto Canto, or Fifth Canto of Dante's Inferno. The company believes that all perfumes should be an olfactory journey through the story of human nature, much like Dante's journey in the Inferno. The luxurious perfumes from this house are complex and compelling as each one portrays a drama.
