Reviews of Blu Mediterraneo : Chinotto di Liguria by Acqua di Parma

Overly sweet, fake citrus played against green herbs in a haze of soap. The mix of herbs and geranium calls to mind classic masculine scents, and once the citrus quickly fades, the soapy musk gives everything a bit of a barbershop vibe.

I love the smell of candied chinotti and this isn't it. So I think this may disappoint those looking for chinotto (or even a citrus scent at all given their quick fade), but it's passable as a wannabe barbershoppy classic. Honestly, I wouldn't bother with this as a perfume, but it would make a great soap. Meh.

Sweet, lemon-fruity-floral opening. Smells pleasant but more on the side of cheap, cleaning products. Then the jasmine kicks in and gives it a feminine leaning feel. Musk follows mixed with the jasmine and then it starts to go into mature-lady territory for me, leaving unisex behind.

Projection is decent during the first hour but then it fades to a skin scent which sticks around for 4-5 hours.

[b]Category[/b]: 2 Eau de Cologne
[b]Rating[/b]: 5/5
[b]Longevity[/b]: 4/5 (moss lasts well, not citrus)

In the opening there’s a bright fruit I don’t recognize alongside a strong but fleeting cardamom note. After a few minutes, the rosemary takes over and becomes much more herbaceous.The base reminds me quite a bit of Eau de Sud, but lighter. Not as unique as the top notes promise, but the mossy base wins me over. An overall gorgeous composition.

The opening blast is a delight - the slightly bitter chinotto orange with the Mandarine makes for a refreshing start - nice!

The drydown starts when the initial notes have evaporated; it makes a turn into the floral realm. Jasmine, very traditional, sets it off, and later on a lovely geranium makes its mark, with touches of rosemary adding a herbal background.

In the base a slightly slickers side is present, mainly attributable to a cardamom impression, but augmented by a soft light patchouli as well as some white musks. Whiffs of woodsiness make a transient appearance too. Whilst all this sounds a bit predictable, the cardamom gives it a bit of an edge.

I get soft sillage after the initial moments, adequate projection and seven hours of longevity on my skin.

A typical summery citrus cologne, and with the typical colognes the refreshing beginning is short-lived. The chinotto gives it an unexpected twist. The later stages are not particularly original, but crafted quite well, and their longevity exceeds that usually expected form such a Cologne. Overall 3/5

This is a beautiful, intriguing scent. The citrus chinotto top note is glorious and then some herbs and spices appear to round it out.
It has a musky drydown and overall reminds me of the original Eau Sauvage.
Lasting power and sillage are both excellent on my skin. Highly recommended.
