Very helpful Review
The good mood maker
Italy - Holidays. Jogging on the beach promenade. He bent over and broke his foot. Back to Germany. It was clear that a specialist was needed to reassemble the puzzle pieces into a reasonable midfoot that could be used for the rest of one's life. Surgeon's appointment. Unthinkable without fragrance. But what to take?
Outside summer. So something fresh. What Italian offers itself also, despite the vacation disaster. Bergamot di Calabria. The perfect companion for every summer appointment, also for a crutched person in the clinic.
Some companies sometimes give their fragrances completely abstruse names. This one sums up everything you need to know. Italian bergamot. Point taken. Sometimes life can be very simple.
BdC starts fresh, very simple. With, the inclined reader will already suspect it with bergamot. This does in combination with lemon an outstanding job. And when I trust my nose, it extends from the head to the heart to the base note. That's class, no question. In the dry-down the fragrance then becomes slightly woody and a pinch of vetiver is added. I find this mixing extremely successful. A summer fragrance par excellence. I like Cedro di Taormina from the blu mediterraneo series equally well, which is why both of them joined me.
Sillage: difficult depending on the dosage of course, strong at first, but just as strong but decreasing. What for a summer scent does not have to be necessarily negative, therefore from me here also no point deduction. A lot has been written about durability and this is often the big point of criticism. It is in the nature of things that a fresh and light fragrance cannot last so long simply because of the ingredients used. My summer AdPs stop somewhere around six hours ago. That things can get better is shown by the Profvmvm Romas, who put everything I have ever had in summery notes in the shade when it comes to durability - but also at a different price point. In summary, I find the durability in an acceptable range - but as often heard, durability is super often dependent on the wearer and his skin, so I can understand negative comments.
The bottle: the typical AdP shape, but with an intense, sensational blue tone that evokes associations between noble, relaxed, casual and high quality. There's nothing to complain about.
Bottom line for me a great summer scent for to be politically correct, m/f/d. And definitely worth a test!
