Mid century fougere
Opens with a bitter petitgrain supported by a spicy lavender. Then it will slowly morph into a soapy Woody base with a noticeable presence of a stunning greenish oakmoss note. A work of art to say the least. Also what is most noteworthy is the duality I'll clean and skank here which I always appreciate, and I can a tribute to the generous quantity of the aforementioned labdanum and myrrh. It's spectacular and what draws me in more and more it lies close enough to the skin so that it isn't overbearing, but it definitely hums for a good while, creating hey both cozy and seductive aura. I we'll be reaching for this come autumn for cool nights when I want to be wrapped in a warm dry aromatic animalic embrace. I thank you! ;

Classic in my collection
This is one of those fragrances that have accompanied me for 25 years. At that time very intense, because great love, now more in the background, because Parfumo promiscuity. So he comes on days where I want to reminisce to use.
Originally, it was a matter of a miss test: I was on vacation in Sicily and wanted to test the newly released Aqua die Parma. In the perfumery, however, there was only this. Reluctant and disappointed, I sprayed on the Classica, as a consolation prize, so to speak, and wandered off. This magical water has not let me go, however, and so I am quite remorseful after half an hour back to the perfumery and bought it for me.
For the next 3 years (at least!), Aqua Classica was my year-round companion. Its wonderful balance of citrus, greenery and woods warmed me up in cold winters and cooled me down in hot summers. Of course, since it was only available in Italy, that meant increased travel there to maintain the supply chain...
Back then, the label was also more retro and playful than the one on the current fragrance photo. Meanwhile, the fragrance is apparently no longer in production. Too bad! Lovers of the genre could console themselves with Eau du Sud by Goutal but a little. I will use my bottle well-dosed and set on certain days on nostalgia.
