Super sweet vanilla almond. The almond is definitely green in that it is unripe, not that there are green notes. I get no citrus or anise to speak of; it’s mostly a very sweet vanilla almond with a floral taint and some musk underneath to make it perfume rather than food. It’s a nice bedtime type scent, but I had to scrub it because it's just way too sweet on my skin.

Vanilla and almonds. Like smelling licorice cookies.
The anise provides a minty, almost menthol-cooling feel. I don't get much citrus at all but it can be a little flowery and fem.

It's not a heavy, dense scent but it does feel better suited for mild to cool weather. Projection is good for the first couple hours, then it settles down. Maybe 5-6 hours longevity total.

An amazing summer gourmand ! Almond cake smelling almost. Unfortunately, the scent is very fleeting on my skin. I won't buy a full bottle but it is very nice.

Mandorlo di Sicilia by Acqua di Parma is a gentle, delicately sweet and airy scent from the gourmand family.

The blend has an almondy main accord masterfully mixed with one of the most natural smelling vanilla aromas. The scent of the said duo sometimes might be described as a smell of marzipan and sometimes as of vanilla custard. Besides the mentioned accord, there are also other toning and smoothing notes at play: vanilla, anise, peach, ylang-ylang. All these notes beautifully and in harmony build up and upon the main accord. In the base, the smell becomes slightly musky and floral.

Great gourmand and an extremely charming scent tailored for warmer seasons.

No complaints with this at all, sweet initial deployment not too heavy dries down to that lush Almond and Vanilla combo, had me salivating...decent length and easy relaxed wear... thumbs up from moi.

The opening blast reeks of orange, anise and a big dose of almonds. A touch of bergamot provides some freshness, but more a glimpse of it than a ray.

The almond grows stronger in the drydown, with the addition of a slightly creamy ylang-ylang together with a vanilla note resulting in a slightly boozy aroma that is halfway between Sarsaparilla and a root beer.

The base adds a woodsy undertone - cedar mainly - that adds sone more depth. Later in the base a balsamic impression develops, but this Tolu balsam, as it is proclaimed, has neither balsamic nor any medicinal characteristics on me; it is more an accompanying element to the sweet almond-vanilla-ylang concoctions, which is endowed with some white musks towards the end that have a minimally powdery undertone.

I get moderate sillage, excellent projection and ten hours of longevity on my skin.

This wintery gourmand is rich and comforting. The performance is a plus, whilst the at times overly synthetic and generic nature of its ingredients are minus points. Overall a bit middle-of-the-road. 2.75/5
