Welcome to Calabria
Dear fragrance friends & girlfriends,

this is my first fragrance of the brand Aqua di Parma and I must say that the scent has blown me away.

Imagine you are walking in your hiking holiday in Italy through the fields and meet there somewhere on Olio Essenziale. He lets you in on the cultivation of the citrus and bergamot trees. He is the farmer of these fields and he knows how it goes on here.
Your faithful companion "dog" is of course by your side.
You hold the collected fruits in front of him, and he bites your hand with hunger.
He is blinded by the abundance of the citrusy components. Blinded by the color of the green-yellow fruits.

So it is with this fragrance, a dazzler.

I really love the fragrance, but he holds out a maximum of 2 hours, then he is only hot air, like Sandra if you have made the Lörres 3 times completely empty.

For the price you can also equal to Bergamotte22 o.a. grab, that saves you the nerves. Zaster not really because there cost 50ml also 150€.

With this fragrance you're briefly on vacation, because so much you pay for a brief experience of Italy. Only without bite in the hand and with empty Lörres.

Don't forget the lemons!
"You're going to Calabria? Don't forget the lemons!"
So one might advise anyone loosely based on Friedrich Nietzsche's "Also sprach Zarathustra" who is planning a trip to southern Italy. Whether the flight goes to Naples on the Amalfi Coast, to Lamezia Therme in Calabria or to Catania in Sicily, a standard lemon from a German discount grocery store should always be carried by every traveler to these regions.
Why? To have comparison possibilities.
Because such a thing, which one gets to buy with us, one will get there rather not to eyes. I advise to visit local markets. Or take a trip in a rental car over the country and then stop on narrow country roads to see what small farmers are growing on their fields. You've never seen anything like it, you can't even put a name to it. Size, colors, smells, flavors, structures of the peels, everything. And our discount lemons will be bought afterwards only out of pure embarrassment. Is so.

I do celebrate Acqua di Parma. The cylindrical cardboard boxes in which the flacons rest in the shape of a solid truncated cone, with their rich colours and solid knobs. This shows quality consciousness, the glued-on labels with the typical letters reflect timeless Italian design. Visually alone, an ornament for any perfume collection.

With the first spray envelope one immediately several fresh citrus aromas. Sour, bitter and also sweet, but it remains at first rather with the lemon than with the bergamot or lime. The green and tart notes only gradually come to the fore, giving the fragrance depth. A variety of aromas comes to the fore, which one would not believe in the disdainful little citrus fruits from our discounters. But the fruits of southern Italy have so much more to offer than just sourness; a wide variety of green nuances and bitter nuances come to the fore. With loss of the sweetish-fruity aromas, the fragrance unfortunately flattens out a bit, since also the smoky and woody notes hardly help.

Depending on the temperature and especially humidity, the scent develops sometimes faster, sometimes slower. Especially in sultry weather, the scent seems to me literally flow from the skin. This is unfortunately the weak point of this fragrance: He remains apart from the freshness prelude rather close to the body, so a very intimate fragrance and the shelf life is also very short with only one to three hours in some cases. Since the top notes outshine the heart and base notes by far, you can add the fragrance at any time, nothing gets caught, nothing interferes. And you have to put unfortunately, you want to come through the day unscathed.

"Bergamotto di Calabria" is a fragrance that does without floral aromas, so it is very clear and unisex, for everyone always and everywhere very well wearable. I layer this fragrance also very happy about other Acqua di Parma fragrances over, for example, I give the very woody "Colonia Quercia" an additional freshness kick, without what gets in the way. Yummy!

Compare "Bergamotto di Calabria" with other citrus fragrances. The qualitative differences in the flavors should speak for themselves. Would not there be the shelf life. Much too short. Like every holiday in Italy, actually. One hands me a Granita or an iced Limoncello!

Bergamot, lemon, ginger, bergamot, lemon, ginger, bergamot, lemon, ginger ... OFF!
I like the "Blu Mediterraneo" series of Acqua die Parma because of its natural citrus freshness. Whether the ingredients are actually noble and "hand-picked" in the end, I can not say. There are probably 11 fragrances in total, of which I have tested 5-6. My absolute favorite remains "Cedro di Taormina" (see my review at "Need"), even if it only has 170 and no 450 ratings. All fragrances of the blue series, however, line up similarly, with ratings around the 7,5.

Blue bottles stand per se in most cases for fresh fragrances, which makes it easier to find your way around. If they then still come in the retro pharmacist design and are named after Italian resorts, this is of course a marketing ploy that pulls quite. One should not forget that Acqua di Parma belongs 100% to the largest luxury goods company in the world: LVMH
With a niche brand, we have to do it here so not at all, but with a consistent product strategy. Because Acqua di Parma makes not in trends, not on thick pants and not in fat sillage. Here, holiday feeling is to be awakened. Here, regional craftsmanship is propagated. Here, the "Dolce Vita" and Italian way of life is set in scene.

To the fragrance itself remains with the headline probably not much more to say. The smells citrus-fresh and makes no secret of it. He still does not sting the nose, is definitely unisex and a great refresher. Whether Puglia, Calabria, Sardinia or Sicily is of course irrelevant in the end. Because the fragrance is flown faster than any plane from Germany to southern Italy needs! ;-)

Depending on the gusto, I would personally choose another "Blu Mediterraneo" fragrance, perhaps with a little more fruit in the top note or a little more wood in the base note. I have (as mentioned at the beginning) found my favorite and think despite my praise for this product series: a second I do not need so seen. Because in the end they are all very similar and a more powerful drydown could not hurt this one

The ice cream parlor is open again!!!
Yesterday, last day of February 2021. Sunshine, 10 degrees Celsius. Just the right time to go out with our three-year-old daughter and our Labbi.
After a while, our daughter calls out abruptly and completely enthusiastically, "Daddy, the ice cream parlor is open again!"
I don't have any money with me. So off home to get money and pack up the rest of the family.

At home I think about: what fragrance for this weather?
Times my samples look through and there beams me but a Acqua di Parma blue through (freu).
I grab the bergamot and spray on: 3, 4, 5 times and I stand for a brief moment in sunny Italy. Lemons and bergamot, nice refreshment- horny.
So off to the ice cream parlor, 15 minutes there, a delicious ice cream in the late winter sun enjoy then 15 minutes back.
Slowly the sun lowers and the Acqua du Parma is - gone! Just gone like the sun.

No matter, it was a beautiful moment and the fragrance is wonderful for just that.
The moment just shouldn't last too long.

PS: in the summer he gets another chance

A wonderful summer scent
The fragrance is definitely best for the really hot summer days. But since I bought this one, I can't stop wearing it.
It begins with such a strong bergamot note that you feel like you are sitting in a bergamot fruit. But the name already gives a hint of this. But in my opinion the Italians have managed to make this citric freshness come along without such a strange artificial touch.

If you just think the citric notes are slowly settling down, more bergamot follows. But I think that is exactly what you want for the summer. For me there are more wooden notes coming through in the dry-down than I would have guessed from the given notes.

Afterwards it disappears very quickly on my skin. You can guess which scent is on it for another hour, but after that it's over. I think this is the biggest weakness of this otherwise very successful fragrance. But it is no problem to spray this fragrance from time to time.

I must say that ADP has created a very good fragrance for the very hot days of the year. Since you don't roam around outside too much in very high temperatures, you can easily overlook the meagre shelf life.
Bergamotto di Calabria is definitely equally good for both sexes and I must say I do not regret the blind purchase in any way, which is unfortunately due to the corona situation.

The green Mediterranean coast
You are driving along an Italian or Spanish coast, get out of the car, a salty sea breeze whistles around your ears and you are surrounded by citrus and green bushes. This is how you can imagine the Blu Mediterraneo - Bergamot di Calabria.

The note of bergamot is fully in the foreground here. Unfortunately I cannot smell the ginger. The cedar wood and the musk in the background ensure that the fragrance is not aggressively fresh, but rather warm and restrained. Nevertheless, it is by no means a heavy scent that can only be worn in winter, quite the contrary! Due to the mentioned citric bergamot note, which clearly predominates here, it is a fragrance that is so appropriate for summer.

The performance could be better. The durability is really very manageable. After about an hour you only have something if you hold the olfactory bulb directly on the sprayed skin, too bad. Also the Sillage is more bad than right. In the beginning I thought wow, but that subsides very quickly.

Blu Mediterraneo - Bergamotto di Calabria - Blue Blue Blue - Bergamot Fresh, Fresh, FRESH !
Aqua di Parma has so far caused a subliminal distance in me. Not explainable... Well, it should be something citrusy/fresh. Always my first choice. There it was written...Blu Mediterraneo should be a good choice. Great blue, great name, I just order the little bottle in the blue. And then I put it on. Wonderful ! Bergamot is a symbol for Italian freshness. A clear and pure fragrance with the typical tart undertone. And it stays. It remains clear and tart on the skin. Does not become too sweet, does not become musty. This Italian pleasure remains for many hours. Bellisimo!

Fresh, citric, calabrian - bergamot par excellence
Even if it's winter now, I'm looking forward to the hot summer days again.
This is the best season in which AdP Calabria has the best fragrance development. The impression of the top note with the bergamot is over right after the application, but, but: then it goes into the heart note and it has it in itself. There lies the unbelievable, fresh, absolutely sensual performance of this flacon packed in sweet-spicy notes - and in this heart note the bergamot is still present!
It really goes down well with everyone and many have already asked me what an extremely good fragrance it is!?
The Sillage is rather reserved, can be strengthened however well, in which one applies the Bodylotion available to it and shower itself best in the morning with the powder soap or the shower gel into a wonderful, fresh, enchanting day....
It is best to buy the whole line of "Bergamot di Calabria" right now.
With this fragrance you make a fresh breeze everywhere in summer - and it leaves a really strong impression ....

Olfactory trip to Italy
I love the scent of bergamot in both tea and perfume. For me, it suits the summer, makes good sounds and refreshes. This fragrance captures everything I expected by its name. If I close my eyes, I get pictures of summer, sun and beach, but also of shady Olvienhainen and of cozy evenings with cool white wine on a terrace above the roofs of Florence.
The special kick is when the freshness of bergamot is combined in the heart note with a slight spiciness of ginger, gently underlaid with a hint of cedar. I can't smell benzoin, and the musk is holding back discreetly. I can tell that the two of them are playing along in this composition by the fact that I can still evoke the pictures of Italy hours after they have been applied; all I have to do is close my eyes and sniff.

This fresh and juicy spicy-citric Summer fragrance, quickly settles to a very gentle, yet dusty earthy-woody base. Sadly lacks performance.

Clean fresh and very realistic bergamot. Poor longevity but that's an issue with all citrus scents.

Sparkling citruses, fresh and invigorating, rounded by some cedar, musk and benzoin. The performance is extremely weak.

This is a beautiful fresh citrus, probably the best bergamot out there. Unfortunately it lasts less than 1 hour. Top scent otherwise.

Beautiful citrusy bergamot: very fresh, sharp and zesty but also very short lived. As they say: if one hour goes by, reapply.

It's a pleasant and well balanced citrusy scent wearable mainly in summer, but the price in comparison is too high
