I once saw a report on the Italian coast and got lost there
The headline may almost seem like a conclusion of this fragrance. Because he tries to combine many things that already exist and mix them with his own notes. But at some point he has lost his way and does not quite manage to reach his goal.

The first time I sprayed it on, the thought of an Acqua di Parma perfume immediately came to my mind. Rather involuntary, because it has not much in common with these Mediterranean scents. However, he is probably trying to take something away from the citrus freshness of the top notes.
Unfortunately, he does not succeed in doing so, as this citric is heavily whitewashed by woody notes and a strong cardamom wind. One notices he would like to reveal more of it, but the mentioned notes give him a leg up. Therefore he can't get anywhere near these great aromas of Acqua di Parma.

After a while he is joined by some herbs that he has already found somewhere in his home garden. I hear a little bit of coriander or parsley. Unfortunately he didn't make it from his home garden to the free landscapes of the southern European countries. Instead of rosemary and basil there is just German parsley. But that doesn't even have to be bad. Rather remains rather down-to-earth alone because of the continuous woody impact.

One does not even have to make the well-known citric cutbacks in durability. It survives surprisingly well and even within the first 2-3 hours it puts a gentle cloud over the sprayed ones.

So he really is a good candidate to be tested this summer. When I think about it he even reminds me a bit of a Tom Ford Costa Azurra Aqua, which I also like very much.

In conclusion, there remains a really good, but not to the end consistently pulled through scent, with which one makes definitely no mistake at the price offered.

Furthermore, it can be funnily compared to the current corona situation. He tries to fly to the Mediterranean Sea, but is not allowed to, so he stays in his home garden and basks in the sun near the vegetable patch.

New summer edition 2020 ?
Recently tested at Müller. Has a very nice, fresh opening and is well balanced. Don't know if this is the summer edition 2020 ? Definitely a candidate for the upcoming summer and worth testing ;) !
