Blu Mediterraneo - Mirto di Panarea by Acqua di Parma

Greenish blue

Acqua di Parma’s blue colognes are in this sweet spot between mainstream and exclusive. Or should I say a blind spot, a void? They may be too outspoken for the designer audience and too much of a fancy shower gel for the ‘snobs’.

Personally, I find them effective but somewhat unexciting refreshers for casual daytime wear on summer days. Colognes with a fine quality and a clear Mediterranean Casanova vibe.

Mirto di Panarea adds an enjoyable touch of dry green herbs to the theme of citrus and sea breeze musks. A mild amber note in the base adds a little warmth and a tiny bit of sweetness.

The sillage is subtle and longevity is short. As it should be, it’s a cologne!
