Yet Another Cool Water Clone...
GrigioPerla opens with an accord that immediately calls to mind the scent of Cool Water with a nice soapy herbal lavender and bergamot composition comprising the top notes before a strong anise accord takes the fore in the heart notes and pretty much remains there through the rest the scent's duration mixing with amber in the base, conveying a more barbershop Rive Gauche fougere vibe. Longevity and projection are both excellent.

When I first tried on my sample, I thought I had sprayed Cool Water on by mistake as the similarity is quite notable. That said, GrigioPerla does at least distance itself somewhat from its obvious target by veering off to the barbershop vein in its heart and dry-down without completely losing track of where it initially was headed. After smelling so many Cool Water (well really Green Irish Tweed) clones over the years, it is hard to get excited about yet another one so many years later... Maybe when this first came out in the early nineties it would have been more impressive, but while I can appreciate the effort that went into GrigioPerla its lack of originality hurts my overall impression of it, and quite frankly vintage Cool Water and Green Irish Tweed both smell better. If you want to clone something, you have to distinguish yourself, and sadly I don't think this does. I give GrigioPerla which does at least smell good, an above average 3 out of 5 star rating.

The "Intense Edition" edt has a more (synthetically) pronounced Tonka and Lavender than regular edt. Differently balanced notes than Reg.+4
