BELLA ITALIA in a bottle!
Getting a tan on the rocky coast line of Sicily. The heat and salty water getting covered by fresh Amalfi lemon that refreshes your body and mind in the afternoon sun.

A crisp and citric scent that has some history. Not only limited, because of the difficult process of production, but also a phenomenal bottle design made of porcelain!

This is a true piece of art. From the scent to the bottle it is a must have for someone looking for the perfect summer freshie, giving you a great value of citrus and summer breeze!

This scent reminds me of so many great summer days and is absolute neutral. It can be worn by all genders and will not miss to excite you day by day. Heatwave by Heatwave.

Beautiful and beautiful difficult
Phew, this fragrance does not make it easy to rate him. Good he is all the time, the top note, which pleasantly lasts a good hour, is a huge citrus explosion. This is especially refreshing on hot summer days.
If the top note has evaporated, a soft, slightly sweetish-fresh fragrance remains, which definitely smells good, but you already know.
The durability is good for a fresh EdT and the Silage also.
With that, I am now faced with the decision of how to rate this fragrance; the top note is an 8, the rest of the fragrance rather a 6-7.
but since the top note is nice and refreshing, and also lasts long, I round up times generously to 8 points total.
Definitely a nice summer fragrance.

Italy in a beautiful bottle
With Bergamotto di Calabria la Spugnatura came the first Acqua di Parma by a happy event in my collection.
I got a sample of it from my last perfume purchase at my regular perfumery, which I happened to try on the first, and few, hotter days of the year.
On the morning of a sunny day it had to go quickly, and I had no time to think about what I'm wearing today but reached prudently into my sample drawer and pulled Bergamotto di Calabria.
I sprayed it on and hurried towards work. In the car and the first hour at work I took a strong citrus freshness was, this should not have been stronger for my taste because I slowly already the water ran together in the mouth. But then in the early noon changed in the drydown the citrus in a gentle mixture of bergamot and masculine woods.
So he remained then also the rest of the day, the durability is top for an EdT and the sillage is not space-occupying but still present
I then bought the bottle and am very satisfied to this day, try it out in any case if you are bergamot fans like me :)

Can very good things get even better?
Visually, La Spugnatura differs from the - in my opinion beautiful because simple and pleasantly reduced but still elegant held - original bottle by playful golden and white applications. You can like that, but you don't have to. Tastes are different, that has its charm and so this bottle will certainly find its fans. Personally, I like simple elegant flacon better, but at the end of the day it is not necessarily on the packaging, but on the content.

So first spray away and then bring the wrist to the nose. Hmmmm, yes, is still - and thank goodness - Bergamotto di Calabria, I feel this variation overall a little more citrusy than its parent. This is quite finely made and is perfect for warm spring but also hot summer days. A light, enormously pleasant, unobtrusive but still always present fragrance, which in this yet so rainy spring immediately holiday feelings arise.

Most Acqua die Parmas usually come along quite linear, great transformations from the top to the base note are only rudimentary. This representative here actually performs a certain development and in so far as the citrus-fresh component of the prelude slowly dies down and woody notes may take over. In addition, a light and subliminal pinch of vetiver, which rounds off the whole neatly, but overall the bergamot, at least to my feeling, a little too much in the background pushes. Since I like the original with its (almost unchanging and super clear) line then a little better.

Sillage and durability are on the same level as the original, wants to say, in the still medium but acceptable range, but here too there is certainly room for improvement.

Conclusion.
Bergamotto di Calabria La Spugnatura is just like the original a great fragrance for summer temperatures. Who does not know the original, will love him. Who knows the original, will be able to perceive differences in detail. Whether these ultimately but marginal differences move one to put this daughter scent in the bathroom next to the mother is up to each person. Personally, it is not enough for me, especially since I have learned to appreciate the original enough in its style and high quality. For ladies as for men Bergamotto is and remains a wonderful summer fragrance, an anticipation builder, a holiday extender and whether as the original or as La Spugnatura variant perhaps one of the best bergamot fragrances ever.

The slightly better Bergamotto di Calabria
Yesterday was finally my filling of Bergamotto di Calabria La Spugnatura in my mailbox I was really excited about the fragrance, because I am as an Acqua di Parma fan always about each new fragrance which comes new to the market of Acqua di Parma. I can tell you right away I like Bergamotto di Calabria La Spugnatura very much and the bergamot note is really perfectly implemented, but now comes a why I would not buy Bergamotto di Calabria La Spugnatura as a whole bottle, if for one is not the flacon design in the foreground. The difference to the normal Bergamotto di Calabria is for my feeling simply too small, in order to justify more than the double price. Bergamotto di Calabria La Spugnatura smells a little more natural due to the sponge technique used and also lasts a little longer, but this is not enough for me to justify the significantly higher price. But now I would like to briefly discuss the fragrance itself: Bergamotto di Calabria La Spugnatura smells as the name suggests mainly of bergamot, plus for me there is a slight grapefruit and orange note, which are surrounded by cedarwood and vetiver to increase the longevity. The fragrance is fresh and somewhat woody, which makes Bergamotto di Calabria La Spugnatura the perfect unisex fragrance for me
As a conclusion, I can tell you here yet that Bergamotto di Calabria La Spugnatura could convince me quite, but just not enough to justify a purchase, because I can get from the normal Bergamotto di Calabria with a little luck almost 300 ml for the same price.

Dolce far niente - holiday feelings in a bottle!
Getting a package from Acqua di Parma is always a treat. The lovely packaging with tissue paper, the yolk-yellow and dark-blue boxes and jars made of haptically wonderful textured paper alone are worth the luxury of a blind order every now and then! This time, I really only wanted to repurchase the excellent shower gel (to match Colonia), but the notes of the new, limited-edition fragrance in the blue range sounded so enticing that I broke all vows never to make impulse fragrance purchases again - and, I must confess, with great inner pleasure.

Blu Mediterraneo - Bergamotto die Calabria La Spugnatura: what a name! Let it roll on the tongue and taste it really - immediately you feel transported to the picturesque coastal villages of Calabria. And a first careful spray from the really extraordinarily beautiful bottle contributes considerably to the olfactory underpinning of this fantasy. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, sit back and relax, because now you're about to enter the Hesperides grove of your dreams. It's all there: bitter, citrusy-zesty, lovely-orangy, tart and juicy-green - and in its entirety it makes for an extremely enticing and promising prelude, with the eponymous bergamot always in the foreground. But let's not praise the day(dream) before the evening, and some of the blue Acquas have had me muttering murmurs of enthusiasm in the top notes, only to either shamefully let me down immediately afterwards or disappoint me with a lukewarm, generic base.

With "La Spugnatura", it goes on for a delightfully long time with this refreshingly clear opening. It changes only very gradually in a slightly more delicate direction. To call it floral would already be saying too much. More like catching a whiff of the floral in addition to the fruit of the orange - and bergamot trees. If I were to name it, it would probably be floral-green, because it remains without sweetness for my nose.

As the afternoon progresses, the scent moves on, becoming pleasantly tart-green towards evening. Unmistakably push two of my favorite notes in the foreground: vetiver and galbanum let "La Spugnatura" softer and deeper and give it new fullness. Mentally, the smells transport me to a terrace, a glass of wine in hand, the sun is setting and finally a breeze from the mountains brings fresh moist air and perhaps a hint of coolness.

The fragrance with the sonorous name accompanied me in the past days to the office, to a bike ride and to extended walks. He is an unobtrusive fellow, but which carries a lot of elegance and Italian esprit in itself. It reminds me (not of the scent, but of the attitude to life!) of the classic Colonia from the same house, which I always steal from my husband's scent cabinet. I will certainly empty the 100 ml bottle with the beautiful stylized bergamot decoration in the course of the summer - and I must confess that I like this limited edition much better than the normal Bergamotto di Calabria. And already I'm starting to consider whether a bunker bottle wouldn't be an extremely sensible thing to do, and in doing so, I'm nimbly suppressing the fact that my perfume drawers are bursting at the seams and I had sworn to myself to finally radically reduce my collection.

PS: a few more words about the addition in the name "La Spugnatura". In my treasure box from Italy was a little flyer describing the process used in the fragrance. The bergamots are processed by hand - using a mini rake the size of a spoon to extract the pulp. The peel is then pressed onto sea sponges, which absorb the bergamot essence. Apparently, this is a process that was used in ancient times and is said to be capable of preserving a special variety of aromas. Be that as it may - the result is an extremely pleasing summer fragrance, a test is recommended to all lovers of bergamot fragrances.

Fresh and mouthwatering citruses in the opening. La Spugnatura is slightly green and it dries down to a very creamy woody cedarwood.

I like the original much much more than this one. It’s longer lasting but doesn’t have that refreshing quality of the original.
