Palazzo is (was) intense and thick, with caramel notes in the opening, with a red orange bringing a little bit of light. After that however, Palazzo becomes thicker and darker, with heavy roses and still a memory of the orange of the beginning. The finale is less intense, with vanilla and woods.
Too bad that it didn't sell enough and was discontinued, is the time of powerful orientals on the mainstream side maybe over?
I love the lemon-camomile scented of the beginning, it blends well with the florals and the result is very good-hearted.
What disappointed me a little, is that it won't change much, and it's like having a perfume made of opening notes only. I would have preferred some more variety.
After the marine and citrus opening, when AdG settles down it offers a perfect balance of sea water, herbs and citrus notes.
It's probably too old and too popular to be someone's signature perfume, but an occasional spray should always be welcome.
Not exactly a bomb of flowers this Flowerbomb. Sure there's a bouquet full of variety, but what stood out more to me was the waffle-like sweetness, growing more intense in the heart notes. The dry down is still sweet but in a different way, and less aggrressive overall.
Flowerbomb was made to be popular, and the mission was accomplished quite well.
I liked the unpretentious rose in this one.
It's very smooth and although it wasn't created to seduce - that's why it's quite green and fruity as well - there is still a peppery side, which reminds of what rose can do when it's unleashed.
What was Antonio Morillas thinking when he made this? The sugar is burnt and bitter, which is not always bad, but in this case it just won't go with the florals.
If you really have to pick a sweet-floral, go for Flowerbomb instead.
