The folks at Moschino evidently can appreciate a good citrus-floral-woody fragrance, as they have a few of them. FUNNY! is probably the highest quality of the group, with I LOVE LOVE and HIPPY FIZZ trailing slightly behind. I have not tried the made-for-men Moschino citrus, but I probably should since they obviously know what they're doing!
FUNNY strikes a balance between the super-orangey I LOVE LOVE and the synthetic fruity floral with a citrus opening in HIPPY FIZZ. It seems that the quality-level of a given set of Moschino fragrances is intended to be similar. So FUNNY! which comes in the same bottle and style as COUTURE, is more sophisticated than the Cheap and Chic launches, as I suppose the name would imply...
To my nose FUNNY! occupies the same olfactory neighborhood as Fresh CITRON DE VIGNE. There is a super bright and almost sharp opening. It subsides a bit, but this fragrance remains very citrusy--much more citrusy than floral throughout the duration of a wear. Yes, there is florality, but it's more like an embellishment than a focus. The woods in the background seem more cedarish than anything else, and everything is held together nicely with a substantial clean musk base. I cannot say that I really smell much amber here.
FUNNY! is an excellent summertime fragrance and smells more natural than HIPPY FIZZ. The abstract white noise quality of SSRI fragrances (a group which includes HIPPY FIZZ) is absent here, so this fragrance will work for nearly anyone looking for a citrus-floral-woody effect. Because of the citrus-blast opening, this is definitely a citrus-lovers only composition. I find it to be more lemony than orangey, although not as dramatically as in Annick Goutal EAU D'HADRIEN.
This fragrance evokes memories of Italy during the summer or early fall. Good to wear if you could use a vacation to the Mediterranean but cannot for some reason break away. I have also used this fragrance to counteract seasonal affective disorder (SAD) in wintertime. (-;
