Plenty clean
The tenth stroke of Eau D' Italie, a jubilee fragrance, a gift from a summer refresher. Greenish, masculine, very attractive. It reminds me of a more angular version of Xerjoff's 1861 Renaissance.

Everything has already been said about the fragrance - a photorealistic mandarin with minimal mint and vetiver in the course, which gives it character and balance at the same time. Round, smooth, clean. A part of Italy, indeed. Joie de vivre, luxury, beauty. The pure, sensual life. 35 degrees in the shade. Too much is not too much, but this tickling sunshine nevertheless drives sensual nonsense into one's head. It's like a non-alcoholic cocktail, but it tastes so good and contagiously positive that you don't miss the turns. Sour makes fun. Bitter makes more fun. It can't get any brighter or clearer. Morillas finds here an almost perfect calculation.

Flacon: simple & pure
Sillage: soft & flat
Durability: discreet & light (4 hours)

Conclusion: one of the most beautiful Italian summer fragrances of the last five years - simple, noble, sparkling, sexy, green, sparkling, sunny. Whether in a heat storm or at the pool, at the bar or in the clean sheets, at the Amalfi coast or in Paderborn - this ten can be a one

Something Happened On The Way To The Fair...
Acqua Decima opens with a very natural smelling orange and lemon fruity citrus tandem with underlying hints of green petitgrain. As the fragrance enters the early heart phase the orange citrus gives way to the starring floral orange blossom with the petitgrain and diminished lemon from the open remaining as support. As the composition begins its dry-down, a woody transition emerges seemingly out of nowhere, as the woods and the orange florals jockey for control forming a somewhat awkward unbalanced combination. During the late dry-down the woods finally win-out as they dominate the finish. Projection is below average and longevity is slightly below average at about 6-8 hours on skin.

The open to Acqua Decima is quite enticing as the orange, lemon and petitgrain conjure up memories of Eau d'Orange Verte and Concentre d'Orange Verte by Hermes, though adding very natural lemon into the mix. As things turned to the orange blossom focus in the early heart the perfume while not ground-breaking (following a typical formula for high quality classic Eau de Colognes) stayed very appealing... Then things begin to fall apart during the latter heart phase as a strange woody accord entered the mix and it just did not play well with the citrus, greens and florals from earlier. The first time I wore it I found the late middle presentation just a bit unsettling but on future wearings I have not had the same reaction, so maybe it was a one-off. The bottom line is Acqua Decima starts off similar to many successful classic Eau de Cologne compositions (even if technically it is EdP strength), but something happens on the way to the fair that just did not work for me, and while I award the composition a "good" 3 stars out of 5, I somehow think that at $140 per 100ml bottle as it does not excel at performance metrics any better than an EdC, one can do better for less money (maybe one of those two Hermes compositions for starters).
