Frescoamaro means “fresh and sour” in Italian, and it is indeed a fresh and sour scent – or better say, more precisely; fresh and salty-camphoraceous. I smell a head accord of white flowers, citrus, then down to green notes, some melonal kind of synthetic fruits (stuff like [insert a crap fruity designer scent of the 2000s]), something ozonic coming and going, cedar, slightly mossy-earthy notes, a hint of vanilla. And underneath all of this, a persistent and quite bold salty-humid feel with a metallic aftertaste, something like sweaty skin. Not sure if that is due to “white-grey” musks or what. Overall Frescoamaro is not bad, though: it’s a discreet scent which smells like dozens of mainstream scents playing the same “citrus-woody-aquatic” card. Without praise or blame.

Elegant mixture
I usually like reading reviews to Bertrand Duchaufour's creatures, enjoying to see, how much differs people's opinion. My review will be totally subjective, no chance that someone else will feel exactly the same, testers will decide if it is a good or bad news.

So "in the beginning"... I detect pickled cucumber. Cucumber is in the list of notes, but pickled cucumber is something else. Maybe gin is kidding with my nose, but I enjoy the game.
It lasts only for one or two minutes till the fragrance gets creamy and powdery. I expected a more aquatic run, but have to tell that heart of FRESCOAMARO is blooming full heartedly and gently. Rose is overwhelming in many parfumes, now the balance is perfect between osmanthus and rose, they refine each other.
After 1 hour it crosses melon's mind, that he has a mission here, and cames back from holiday for twisting my nose for a few minutes, then travels back to the Bahamas.
I believe that base can satisfy flawlessly demands for a clean scent. Moss tries to ensure softness, but vetiver throws its soapyness to the juice, and makes the perfume a bit scratchy.

The range of FRESCOAMARO is nice, but the fragrance itself is never indiscreet or irritating.

Many thanks to Nasowas for the incredible amount of sample!
