Scent Profile (by Matt when available):
If you're at all familiar with Tallow + Steel, you know it's not their style to clone or even homage a fragrance. Instead, their scents convey the essence of a specific locale. To be clear, while Sicily shares notes with Colonia, it does not resemble it. Colonia is a classic Italian fragrance. Sicily is a comparatively light scent that paints a picture of the region from which it gets its name. That said, Colonia is an excellent complement topping off this shave.
Sicily is rather herbal off the tub, but as soon as the water hits it, a pleasantly bright citrus is broadcasted. The citrus unfolds in a rather predictable stepwise fashion, quickly moving from a tart lemon to a sweet orange and ultimately a slightly bitter bergamot. The bergamot is probably the shortest lived identifiable citrus as it rushes to blend into a woodiness that softens and sweetens yet again before sharply turning to that aforementioned herbal accord prominently displaying a surprisingly bold and pleasant lavender. In my experience with lavender, I typically enjoy a peppery element, but this one trades that for a green and slightly botanical musk aspect which I assume is the advertised rosemary, but I can't specifically identify it as such. It's just so well blended and balanced that it suggests an herbal lavender.
There's no question I enjoy my Colonia fragrances and homages, but Sicily is a pleasant departure from the standard Italian fragrance or even from the customary citrusy Summer fragrances.
