Tiempe Passate, named for an old Neopolitan love song Antonia's grandfather wrote back in the 1920's, was made to smell like "fragrance after you’ve had it on for hours – a truly lived in, skin fragrance."
To me, it smells like the nape of a beautiful woman's neck, who has lifted up her long hair:
This fragrance combines the notes of cedar wood, amber, bergamot, rose and clementine.
It smells like: A lovely musky rose, a tiny bit salty, and then a fleeting moment with the most beautiful amber-citrusy note.
I generally love huge complex chypres, but when I am looking for something light and magical, I reach for this one.
There is something of the past in it, an old Italian love song, but something modern and sparkling too.
If you want a scent that says, "Beautiful Woman"? This one is a great bet.

I just love Tiempe Passate. I always get tons of compliments when I wear it -- from people of all ages. This, and Antonia's Flowers edt, are my favorites from Antonia's Flowers. Tiempe Passate has a sharpness to it going on that doesn't thrill me, but it calms down right away and is just fabulous! It doesn't smell too flowery or too ambery or too salty -- it's just right! It's very hard to describe, but very enjoyable to wear. It's long lasting, but still has a subtlety to it that I really like. The packaging is beautiful also -- VERY. Antonia's Flowers offers a sampler of all of their scents on their website. I recommend it highly. Classy company, classy scents. ;)

Lively & fresh, smells like cedar leaves w/ sharpness of bergamot.. a nice & natural clean smell for a room, not me. Softens a bit on drydown, but still very bright & fresh.

I guess I'm in the minority because I love, love, love this scent. I love everything about it, pretty much, and it's the *only* scent in my collection that never bothers me. Am always happy when I have it on, and can wear it any time of year. I just must have the right chemistry for it or something--because it's *beautiful* always--damn near signature scent caliber, I'd venture to say. And I say this as a *complete scent crackhead.* You know the ones. Per the website, the notes listed are: cedarwood, amber, bergamot, montauk rose (named for its "saltiness") and clementine (for sparkle). I definitely get the cedar and the "salty rose" and perhaps the clementine, too. It is gorgeous--beautiful on its own and layers well with other things I have--even scented body lotion. When I bought it, I spritzed it at Bergdorff's and then went on to Bendel's. The straight sales guy, "James," at Bendel's said to me, "Ahhh, Tiempe Passate--sexy as hell. Not too much--*just right.* One of my top 3 favorites. We don't have it here--you should go back to Bergdorff's and get it NOW." Ummm...okaaaaaaaaayyyyyy. Well, James was right. Do not regret it *at all.* Love the stuff and will keep on re-buying it as long as they keep making it. Fresh, clean, huggy, comforting. Love, love, LOVE. ♥

This is a beautiful fragrance. I get tons of compliments on this, especially from men. The first spray is a bit strong with cedar but it settles into my skin after a few minutes and just smells divine!!!

I don't own this yet but when I do it will be the most expensive product I have bought. For now I have just been spraying it to see how it wears on me. I tend to do this for a few months before making a decision. Anyway, I first heard about this perfume on MUA and also it was featured in Elle or something. When I finally got to smell it I was surprised - I was expecting something slightly floral and romantic - not this nutty amber cedar. It has an odd smell, but none of that over powering alcohol you get with YSL and Laura Mercier perfumes (off the top of my head). What surprised me was that this wore all day and most of the next day too. Some people seem to have observed poor staying power but I found the opposite. I got through a bottle of Dyptique philosykos in 3 months because of the poor staying power and needing to re-apply. Tiempe Passat might actually be worth the £££ if it lasts... Oh by the way, I am early 20s and whilst I think this isn't a young fragrance I reckon if you're a nostalgia gal you will love it. It does have that magic quality.

I got a sample vial of this directly from Antonia's Flowers in Maine because it is the favorite scent of another MUA'er whose opinions I hold in high regard. I used the entire vial on my wrists and inner elbows of both arms. The fragrance was indeed very nice. Then, 5 minutes later, POOF! it was gone. I mean, I could literally smell nothing. My skin apparently ate it up because there was not even a residual whiff. I stuck my arm under my husband's nose to see if it was just me but he too could smell nothing. How can this be? At that price I would expect it to last longer than a nanosecond. Too bad because what I did smell at the beginning was rather good.

Maybe a 1 for this is unfair. Maybe my actual dissappointment in not loving this is clouding my usually even judgement. In any case, this smells like a mixture of soap and fabric softener. For a few (and I literally mean a few... like two) minutes, I could smell the faintest whisper of a floral note of some type attempting to peak out... and then soap and fabric softener. Think Dove soap, not fine milled french soap, either. Sigh.

Beautiful, subtle and unusual. Most mainstream department store perfumes all smell the same these days, rather sickly and synthetic, but this is very individual. My other half absolutely loved it - just as well since I couldn't have afforded to buy it myself at £98! However I do feel I have to 'ration' it somewhat because of the cost.
