A curse and a blessing at the same time
First of all, let me explain the headline first. The blessing is the fragrance itself and the curse ? ... The shelf life!!! This fragrance is one of the most beautiful summer scents of all. When sprayed on, it makes your nose tingle and you may smell one of the highest quality citrus, mint top notes available on the market. Then, after a while, the orange blossom appears and the fragrance becomes more and more a floral citrus scent but by no means feminine. This scent is unisex through and through and one of the most beautiful summer scents I've ever smelled, only the one for this price is unfortunately not good for durability. But still it remains for me in summer the #1 !!!

If only last longer
There are plenty of citrus-based summer perfumes. This one is special as it the closest one to mandarin I know, even though heart note says orange blossom. Unfortunately, longevity is very low, while a lot of summer scent does not last long this one is leading after like 30 min it goes away. This is a pity as the scent itself is not bad.

Do you know the land where the lemons bloom?
A balmy summer evening with a view of the Mediterranean Sea and Vesuvius; the last rays of sunshine are reflected in the horizon and the day quietly fades away, leaving a pleasant feeling of decreasing heat and a cool pinch of lightness.
Imagine this moment wrapped in a fresh, balsamic cloud of lemons, orange and fine spices...

Tom Ford Mandarino di Amalfi has been my absolute summer favourite for two years and he will remain so. As many have already stated in the previous comments, I also think that you can't create a citrus scent more perfect than this.
An expressive unisex scent that is equally good on both sexes and wraps the wearer in a summery fresh and spicy aura.
I can smell the lemons and basil most clearly.
Mandarino di Amalfi is perfect for hot, midsummer temperatures - a fragrance that practically hisses when sprayed on and lets you breathe a sigh of relief. At the same time, however, it is very extraordinary and with "Wumms".
Whether work, leisure, sports or going out is irrelevant - this perfume is from 25 degrees just perfect for all occasions.

Even in winter I sometimes spray it on as a reminder of the warm season and when the heavy, sweet perfumes get too much for me.

For a summer scent, the durability and radiance is good with small smears.
In order to develop the full effect I dose it already very generously and that hurts unfortunately, if one thinks of the price league. This TF is by far the most expensive perfume in my collection.
In the EdP version, it already leaves a dented wallet, but I admit, for the perfect citrus-italy-flavored scent, I'll take that on board.
With the EdT I have concerns that it would be cheaper, but the intensity is disappointing.
The bottle is a dream, azure blue, stylish and heavy. Luxury and a highlight in every collection.

I will spend the current dog days with my "Tommy" before he goes into hibernation. Next year a new bottle is due anyway and that means for Tom Ford
"Fun costs".....

The aunt from America is visiting...
...that's what the perfume reminds me of. For me, it is indeed a somewhat finer and nobler version of the 4711, the Cologne Funkenmariechen, but also no more and no less. If you look at the price difference, then the shirt is closer to me than the trousers.

A buon intenditore poche parole bastano.
I love him.

Juicy, bubbly citrus fruit, almost mimosa-like. I don't think that citrus scents can get any better. Orange blossom and jasmine add some floral sweetness, while mint, tarragon, basil, coriander, sage and black pepper add just enough aromatic notes to support the citrus notes and make the fragrance more interesting than traditional fresh scents.

With this fragrance, I'm certainly thinking of the Amalfi Coast: blue waters, winding roads, steep cliffs, cities carved into the slopes of the hills. When the citrus fruits fade, flowers come through and remind me of Fleur de Portofino.

Highly recommended for people who want a citrus scent that is safe but subtly different.

The perfume, which is worth every cent
Mandarino di Amalfi smells rather monothematically... Tangerine.
Sounds boring? No.

It is not a 08-15 duty-free synthetic-generic summer scented head note mandarin, but rather a freshly picked mandarin from the sunny grove, ripe to eat but not overripe, juicy.

The tangerine is joined by slightly green notes, flowers and light woods, which wonderfully carry the tangerine head in the heart and base and give a pleasant, but unfortunately after a maximum of 4 hours only very closely perceptible, well-protected veil of fragrance.

The perfume is expensive and the shelf life is mediocre, 1.5h sillage, then decreasing, but the fragrance simply smells extremely high-quality, flawless, and is a crowdpleaser par excellence.
He has many friends here, but because of the price it is a fragrance that you will rarely smell outside our community. He is also super unique and stays absolutely in the memory - a great signature candidate.

Although primarily a summer scent, it evokes many, many compliments all year round.
And its freshness and high quality make it both casual and for going out and for special occasions an absolutely great choice that will make you stand out and be remembered.
All this justifies the price in my eyes. It's the most expensive perfume I own. It's also the best perfume I own
Sprayed on, the fragrance immediately puts you in a good mood. It is almost as if it creates a "positive aura" around the wearer, which casts a spell on everyone around him.
The fragrance is very light in character and will suit almost every man and woman. It is attractive to the opposite sex and is not "ONLY fresh" Testing at the souk! It's worth it sooo much :)

A dream
I bought the Mandarino in the souk with other bottlings. Tested and thought- joa ok, for women portable but the price? Uhm neee. I liked other bottlings better then. But I never put him aside completely because he had something. Sweet and at the same time citric, the name is chosen exactly right. There is no tangerine indicated as an ingredient but I imagine to smell it (like Godolphin's raspberry), fragrance development is not really there but is no shortcoming. Not a fragrance for a board meeting or a customer meeting but rather free time to sit in a beer garden with friends if you know what I mean. I like citric scents anyway and after Elysium Cologne and before Dunhill Icon this is my second favourite scent for spring/summer. It's also available in 30 ml (not like Elysium Cologne only as 100 ml which no human being can use up) and therefore for a relatively humane price. I think that's a good thing about the Private-blend line from TF, because the durability is definitely better with smaller bottles.

From natural citrus fruits to flowery soft mochus
The first impression of this fragrance is very deceptive. It opens in an extremely natural way with several citrus fruits that are mixed together in an excellent way.
Unlike Chanel Allure Home Sport / Edition Blanche no chlorine cleaner/cleaner - Vibe, all natural citrus fruits and flowers, more tan/green than sweet.

This impression disappears after about 20 minutes, now the soft mochus is shown to advantage next to the orange blossoms. The smell becomes increasingly creamy, soft, flowery, quite feminine, incredibly pleasant.
Sexy? No, but heavenly.

After about three and a half to four hours I smell something only at skin level, a mixture of mochus and the orange blossoms, very delicate.
The price of course at Tom Ford - level astronomical, especially for the poor durability.
Sillage good for the first 30 minutes, then very subtle.

All in one: an insanely great fragrance, seldom smelled so natural citrus freshness in the prelude and the change of the fragrance is beautiful.
Unfortunately extremely negative: price and durability.

Orange kisses lemon
Usually I am more a fan of heavy fragrances. Here the motto "rules are there to be broken" is absolutely true. The very first time I sprayed the fragrance at my favourite local perfumery I was catapulted back to my last year's Ibiza holiday. This fragrance embodies summer and has immediately joined my alltime favorites.

I am already looking forward to the warm days, when I stroll through the sun smelling of freshly squeezed tangerine paired with lemon.

Thanks Tom Ford for this great fragrance composition!

Citric summer scents ? Not with me!
Well the headline is a bit lurid, I admit it, but I was and am, I have to say this in my defense, never the biggest fan of "Fresh out the Shower - so clean and fresh" fragrances #sic Jeremy ☺

Then why did it get the mandarin from Amalfi into my collection ?

Quite simply...Quality is the trump card !
Why should I sniff through hundreds of scents in the citric segment when Mandarino simply convinces by its ingredients and I don't really like citric scents that much? Of course, the smart and attentive reader could say : "Yes, but then you have no other reference and don't even know if there are still great citric summer scents!....... Objection!!! #sic Phoenix Wright

As a good "Parfumo disciple" I have of course collected a large cross-section of all perfume areas...I simply know what I like and what not.

In direct comparison to e.g. "Happy for Men Eau de Toilette", which I also like for nostalgic reasons, Tom Ford wipes the floor with Amalfi, passing by!
(A somewhat unfair comparison that I admit, but the ingredients simply play out their superiority)

The fragrance itself is just perfectly balanced!
The eponymous mandarin (eig.Grapefruit and Orange) dominates with a fresh, slightly tart but also sweetish note, whose foundation, creamy nuances, persist throughout the course of the fragrance. (On my skin at least, by various feedback)
LECKER !

The biggest weak point, as already criticized by some, is the durability and sillage, which is a bit painful with the price...so the purse.

Conclusion:
For people who have the necessary small change, simply pay attention to good ingredients and with citric fragrances eig. not much can begin, this fragrance is recommended.

If citric, then so !

Beautiful, freshly cut mandarins-like opening. Lighter but similar base to Fl. de Portofino. More feminine and weaker than other blue TF's.

Can’t decide if it smells super cheap or super exclusive. Super fruity it is in any case. Not a man's scent in my humble opinion.

Would never pay more than 2€ for this one. Just grab some hot water and infuse it with some orange blossom. Cool it down. And then spray it

Almost like Neroli Portofino, although this lasts a little longer, but you can not sell these things as if they were your luxury components
