Aren't the mandarins ripe yet? I'll take it anyway!
Mandarino di Sicilia inevitably reminded me of "Blu Mediterraneo - Arancia die Capri". A juicy, fresh summer fragrance that presents its fruit full-bodied and is perfect for warm days. That was it then also already with the similarities. At least with the positive...
The fragrance begins with a wonderful green and immature mandarin, which however already contains a lot of citric juice in its peel. Crisp, juicy and very fresh. This note lasts for quite a while and becomes more mature and softer over time - less green. After some time a slightly flowery note is added and towards the end some wood.
The problem is - at least on my skin - the durability. The silage is fine, but with the shelf life, the fragrance has some difficulties after my tests. The maximum duration on my skin was about 4 to 5 hours. Compared to the Arancia the Capri it's a little more, but still not so that I'm completely satisfied.
This will probably also be due to the properties of fresh fragrances and a hoped durability, which such a fragrance cannot offer. Probably a form of exaggerated expectation. Because on the search for the perfect summer fragrance you have to decide in advance in which direction you want to go and what you want. Rather something spicy, something flowery or rather citric. Flowery is rather not so my smell direction which pleases me, since often green sheets are also from the part. Something spicy is too exhausting for me even for the summer, at least if it is warmer than 25 degrees. So I find the "Aoud Lagoon" of Montale very interesting and also good. However, the seasoning simply gets too much for me on warmer days. For me there is only the citric direction, which also inspires me very much. You will probably have to live with a somewhat lower shelf life, as these often do not have the stamina. The exception here is probably Edition Blanche.

Conclusion is, I have too high expectations for citric fragrances, but find the fragrance mega horny and great for warm weather, which is why this is one of the TOP fragrances for summer.

Mandarins, wherever you look, uh... smells!
It's autumn!
At least you'd think so. Although it's the middle of October and you should be busy digging up Halloween pumpkins and attaching skeletons and ghosts to trees and walls, the weather continues to warm up to such an extent that you'd rather run to the nearest drugstore to quickly cover yourself with sun cream so that you can enjoy the supposed last hot rays of sunshine of the year in the garden, at the lake or anywhere else and sizzle under it!

A fresh and citric scent also enhances the summer feeling, so that I have now also used this scent here, which is supposed to smell like tingly mandarins, which I personally would like quite a lot, as I like tangerines extremely in scents. On the other hand, it will not bother him so much, because he also enjoys the sun's rays by lying lazily out there in the garden.

The fragrance:
Wow, the fragrance begins with a delicious and very authentic mandarin. At first one smells the slightly bitter, but nevertheless tangy skin of it. Then it smells as if you have peeled the mandarin and then the mandarin scent would stick to your fingers. And due to a budding, but slight sweetness, the slightly acidic, but also slightly sweetish flesh is finally in the nose. In short, the tangerine smells absolutely great in the top note!
But even a little later it still smells mainly like mandarins, which I think is great! There is a little orange in addition, but the mandarins are always in the foreground. Only slowly does a somewhat clearer sweetness of jasmine emerge, whereby this combined with the mandarins reminds as mentioned also of the delicious fruit flesh of these fruits.
The bitter might seem slightly stuffy or dry to some, but this doesn't bother me here, because it's not this flowery stuffness, which I always feel like running away from :D
In the base it still smells like mandarins, but this time again less sweet, because the jasmine has almost disappeared again and the musk hardly appears. Otherwise, the scent remains as it is, except that light woods are added, which, by the way, always go well with citric notes.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The sillage is okay at first, because the citric notes radiate well for a short while. Unfortunately, this level is not maintained, so that the fragrance soon loses its strength. You can smell the scent yourself for a while, everyone else has to get a little bit closer, as it is the case with citric scents. Not long, and the fragrance is even body-hugging.
The durability is surprisingly long. He kept me for at least eight hours, most of the time however rather weak on the skin.

The bottle:
The bottle is rectangular, high and transparent. There are white patterns all over the bottle, consisting of a multitude of tiny brand logos. On the front you can also see a golden label and the logo of the brand, only bigger and gold-plated. The lid looks like the end of a column, is also gold-plated and on it you can see the logo again. All in all a beautiful bottle.

Oh man, oh man, oh man!!
I was really excited about this fragrance! For me it belongs to the most beautiful Mandarin fragrances along with Eau de Mandarine Ambrée (Hermès) and Mandarino di Amalfi (Tom Ford). I also think it's great that it smells quite unisex despite the tangerine, because tangerine notes are somehow more in women's fragrances or sometimes a bit too feminine. Who likes citric scents with mandarins and a little oranges, which or which should note this smell in any case times, test is worthwhile itself in any case!

Due to the citric charisma and the fact that the fragrance is also light and loose, it belongs best to the summer, which can be used on murderously hot days to smell good and fresh even in the heat of hell! He somehow has a bit of Chanel's Allure Homme Édition Blanche (at least I think so), by which I mean that he really only unfolds his true strength like the scent of Chanel on warm days, except that instead of bergamot and lemon you can smell mandarin and orange here. Oh yes... Mandarino di Sicilia is a great summer scent!

...
Soo,... my cat is lying in the garden again, he's dozing, but he's not really sleeping and just enjoying the sun (I wrote this during the day, of course it's just in the evening and he's hunting mice or something...!). In this state, you can't actually approach him. Because if I do, he immediately rolls onto his back with excitement and wants to be cuddled on his stomach. What's the big deal, you wonder? Well, he's in the dirt! D

If it rolls on its back, it pulls up all dirt particles like a vacuum cleaner with its extremely dense and fine fur, which cannot even be combed away with a fine comb. And since he will come back to the apartment later, he will of course gradually distribute all the dirt in the whole apartment. Seen that way, there's hardly any point in vacuuming any dust at all, so I could save myself the trouble from now on, right? DD
