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)
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.
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 !
