Vista Sul Mare
This fragrance starts with a fruity floral accord; the citrus notes are sweet and crystalline. No note is jarring; they are a delicate bouquet of well-behaved notes, like a soft summer wind breezing through a well-tended Mediterranean garden. As the fragrance progresses, it gets sweeter and veers more towards the fruity aspect, passion fruit dominating the body. The dry down is woody with a hint of something fruity, almost like melon. Although linear and not long-lasting, this fragrance is wonderful to wear in summer. Lasts for roughly 4 hours on my skin.

"Cool Ozonic Accord": You Can Run But You Cannot Hide!
Although the quality of the components is beyond dispute, and VISTA SUL MARE does smell nice, it is not at all unique or original. Upon application, in fact, it called immediately to mind Benetton BLU, which, while much more synthetic, is still entirely wearable and costs a tiny fraction of the price of this niche perfume.

I actually prefer to ignore the price in reviewing perfumes, for a couple of reasons. One is that I think that perfume is one of the best bargains around, and luxury perfume is by far the least expensive luxury product. (Consider the price of "niche" wine, for example!) So all things considered, I do not think that paying $200 for a bottle of perfume is exorbitant, especially given how long it lasts, and given the cost of everything else which people who use perfume also tend to enjoy (dinner at fine restaurants, nice clothes, taking taxis when they might have walked or used public transporation, fine wine--a bottle of which lasts at most for the duration of one meal--etc., etc.).

That said, it is not unreasonable, I think, for people to say that if two perfumes are nearly identical (empirically indistinguishable to the wearer him-or herself), then, all things considered, the one which costs $20 is preferable to the one which costs $200. That's just common sense.

Back to VISTA SUL MARE. In my opinion, this really is a masculine cologne, not a unisex perfume, as it has been characterized elsewhere. Several of the notes which we associate with masculine colognes are here, and, in particular, the "cool ozonic accord" just screams masculine cologne. So if you want to call this unisex, then you must be willing to concede that every so-called masculine ozonic cologne is also unisex. Fine. Use language however you like, but if you're going to allow the possibility of a masculine cologne, then I cannot really see how this one would not qualify.

I would recommend this composition in particular to the gents who like ozonic colognes but whose physiology is incompatible with some of the synthetic components of vat-produced, low-cost colognes. For everyone else, a purchase of this perfume is just not going to make a lot of sense. Even if you happen to love the bottle, there are better choices within this house's line-up.
