Signature scent potential
Osmanthus from Acqua di Parma starts with a very pleasant fresh and sparkling attack, marked by mandarin and neroli. It is a very soft and natural citric, which meets you here and combines with the fruitiness of the mandarin. If you expect a massive prelude à la Nio from Xerjoff, you are completely wrong here.

Osmanthus is exactly what it may be here. A fragrance from the "Signature of the Sun" line that invites the wearer of the fragrance to take a walk through warmer climes. After the prelude slowly fades, a creamy floral transition follows (notes of rose and ambrette, I don't notice pepper here) to the eponymous Osmanthus blossom. I must honestly admit that my experience with this fragrance was very limited. That's why I was so excited about this release. According to Acqua di Parma, Osmanthus represents the forest landscape of Southeast Asia and that is - in my opinion - a very accurate description.

In Asia, the flowers of this shrub have been used for centuries to perfume tea and thus provide a fruity-sweet peach aroma. As a perfume note Osmanthus brings exactly this exotic aroma and harmonizes wonderfully in the base note with the woody patchouli.

Here one can well understand that Osmanthus is said to have a mood-enhancing effect due to its intense scent. In China, Osmanthus is therefore considered a balm for the soul, which elicits a smile and refreshes the spirit.

A fragrance made for the time between spring and autumn, I also see signature fragrance potential here. For me the fragrance is also clearly unisex and it is wearable at every opportunity.

Osmanthus for the hot days
Amouage his "Sunshine Woman" was for me always the killer among the Osmanthus scents. Often the scents seem so overburdened by the flower alone and made very difficult. It's not a daisy. The Amouage was always a step too heavy for me with a good 33 degrees on Hamburg's streets. It was never a summer scent for me either.
Is it even possible with this flower? Can anyone try that as a summer scent? No.

2019. Surprise from Italy. Acqua di Parma now rocks the fresh side of the Osmanthus world. The green and cytric start is noble and pleasant. Typical DNA of the brand. It's still got some subtle fruit. There's no biting in the nose. The peony looks slightly humble, as does the less conspicuous amber. That's it. Pepper I take was discreet, but from the beginning the Osmanthus. After 3 hours it continues to grow in strength and shows some honeydew on white musk for me. Works well. Yellow gold and strong it goes therefore and at the same time it is well wearable with summer heat on the skin. Great. After 6 hours the air is out but a great veil remains on the skin. Body-hugging and lovely. Never pushy. Unisex. Available as 100 ml or 180 ml bottle. The prices are already high class. In my opinion they could have released the whole thing as a light version at lower prices. 200 € are quickly gone at 100 ml. Will definitely remain one of my favorite fragrances when it comes to the Osmanthus flower. Highly recommended. This A.d.P. "gives" power. You feel very sublime. That's where other flower scents have to warm up for the summer! They look cheap next to the Italians
