This discontinued scent came to me through a recent swap. It gets lots of love all around the perfume world, and it’s about time I tried it.
And oooOOoh, do I see what all the fuss is about. A citrusy, gourmandish opening, reminding me just the slightest of those madeleine cookies, but without being a full-fledged food scent. Where Tendre Madeleine squeals with delight, “Eat me!” Theorema is a true perfume that just hints at tastiness—there is a definite “not edible” quality present. Others describe it as a comfort scent; and others are right. It’s a freezing cold, drizzly day, and this little Fendi number hits the spot.
My one and only complaint: Lasting power, not so hot.
