Hilde Soliani New Sipario Perfume Review

Hilde Soliani Eau de Parfum starts with a burst of juicy pineapple, then joined by creamy coconut after a few minutes, though the pineapple was the most dominant note. Rum is part of the composition about five minutes in but ends up shining more after a half hour to hour when the pineapple is less sweet. The drydown was a combination of the three, as expected, and was less sweet as the fragrance wore on.

It is described as the “perfect pineapple scent” that is inspired by pina colada. The notes are listed simply as: rum, pineapple, and coconut.

Scent Development

First came zesty, biting pineapple–sweet but acidic–just sliced and juice dripping down the cutting board. The pineapple slowly felt heavier, more diffused, as creamy coconut emerged and blended with it. After five minutes, New Sipario found itself doused in a shot of light rum, further softening the bite of the pineapple but adding a syrupy thickness to the composition.

It was sweeter, heavier on pineapple and stingy on the rum, as far as pina coladas go in the first half hour. The coconut strengthened through the first hour, which eventually softened the intensity of the pineapple, which didn’t seem as juicy as a result and also enabled the rum to be more noticeable.

As anticipated, this was a more linear scent, so the scent was a soft blend of coconut, pineapple, and rum (in that order for intensity), which was less sweet in the drydown than it was in the opening.

Application

For testing, I used 1/3 of a 0.7ml sample vial dabbed to the underside and topside of my wrist area on my left arm. I used an unscented moisturizer prior to applying the scent as this is also my swatching arm (aka, incredibly parched at any given moment) as I found scent did not hold well here otherwise. 

I purchased my sample in January 2022; fragrances are known to be reformulated over their lifetime , so be mindful of when a review was made, e.g. a review from 2010 may not reflect what the same-named perfume smells like in 2022.

Longevity

It lasted for three hours until it was a skin-scent and about eight hours before it was quite difficult to detect on my skin. The sillage and projection were quite light after the first half hour.

Personal Thoughts

I liked the fragrance the most after two hours, but it was quite subtle, and I felt like I had to really put my nose to my wrist to detect it, so it ended up being too subtle for the part I enjoyed the post to merit a purchase.

Dear Christine, I’m really enjoying your perfume reviews very much. Even though our skin chemistry, regional/seasonal differences as well as personal preferences are likely different, these reviews are quite entertaining, and I can get a gauge of which scents interest me and might smell nice on my skin. 🙂
