I sprayed tried this on around 6 years ago with my then-girlfriend. She said something like "This is so weird and bad smelling, why don't you just wear some of the more normal men's summer colognes? And it's already giving me a headache, can you please wash this off before you get in the car?" I haven't been to the Tom Ford counter for the past 6 or so years, but I tried this on again today and had the exact same thoughts. Both times it filled my car with this unpleasant rotten orange smell.

very synthetic, very sweet, not unisex in my eyes, this is for the ladies. not a fan, but would not mind if it was on a lady, but nothing i would find very exciting, a neutral thumb on me and that is beeing generous.

[b]Mandarino di Amalfi by Tom Ford[/b]
[b]Category[/b]: 3 Bright Citrus type
[b]Rating[/b]: 4/5
[b]Longevity[/b]: Forever, apparently?

A sour mandarin that is overripe and verging on rotten, but never ventures into the Bigarade territory. It is bright and refreshing with an unexpected tartness. The strength is in the musky base, and this one is not a dryer sheet musk, but an animalic one with a hint of cumin. After a few minutes, the combo has a tendency to go funky/skunky, and if you're wearing this on a hot day, you may not wish to over-apply if you'll be in the vicinity of others during this stage. The skunky part resolves within a few minutes and you have a rounder musky mandarin with decent lasting power.

Bright mint-grapefruit-lemon opening, tart and fresh. When Tom Ford is good, he's good and this is one of the finer points from his brand: natural neroli comes through with herbal-acquatics to give you an elegant image of a summer by the sea. It's sharp and vibrant while refined, this could be a staple in anyone's summer scent catalog.

Alongside the bright citrus notes are very pronounced tarragon, sage, and basil: the greenery and the lemon-orange notes are skillfully blended. It is, however, quite linear: a little musk and amber come through during that latter half of the fragrance's life but it's barely distinguishable from the beginning. That is no reason to shy away from this: what it does, it does very well. Extremely unisex, projection is slightly above average and longevity, sadly, is below: 3-4 hours tops.

One of Tom Ford's top warm-weather scents, a bit of an underrated gem actually that is very seasonal, spring/summer is there this will truly shine.

Very interesting fragrance. At first it's an herbal mint with citrus, but then it bleeds together into the experience of ripping open a mandarin orange and the smell of the pit seeds. It gives way to a minty neroli that is very fresh. It also has some of the musk and jasmine that is characteristic of Aqua Universalis, and Dior Homme Cologne, though I think this fragrance may have bested them. This is a winner! Apparently this was created by Calice Asancheyev-Becker, who made the reformulation of Monsieur Balmain, that I don't like so much. Ironic!

Love this scent from Tom Ford.

Mandarino di Amalfi provides a healthy dose of tangy citrus fruitiness, accented by a slew of fancy spices and set upon a balanced foundation of solid rock rose, amber, vetiver and light animalic touch of musk + civet.

Great for moderate to hot warm weather, fit for active casual occasions. Longevity is okay; layering this or having a mid-routine refresher spritz will help out.
