Originally founded in 1989, Milano Cento was at first intended to be a clothing brand but as the result of an evolution the brand turned into a home for moreish fragrance. The brand was revamped in 2016 after the wife of one of the owners had the desire to make a bottle for his 50th birthday – and thus, Milano Cento was born. The original line has been trimmed and revised to an EDT in two sizes and an opulent body wash with an added product of the alcohol free deodorant stick.
When sent the body wash, EDT natural spray and deodorant stick I was at incredibly excited to try them out, and I wasn’t disappointed. The dazzling scent takes inspiration from all things Italian, and I genuinely believe that alongside pizza and pasta, the fragrance is one of the best things Italy bore. The fragrance is described by Milano Cento as ‘zesty’ with ‘sparkling notes of lemon, bergamot and green petitgrain.’ Along with this, you can really make out notes of an herbaceous nature, such as lavender and rosemary, expertly mixed with basil and clary sage. There’s a richness to this fragrance, though sensual sandalwood and patchouli. This timeless gentlemen’s fragrance really is an unmissable feast for the senses. As well as this, the body wash made me feel ultra fresh and the deodorant stick worked wonders too.
