Fresco? Freddo, freddissimo!
Hingesplasht, and hey, this summer water scares with hissing cold lemon! Immediately a glistening bright and hard nerolino note is added - monotonous, no changing in darker and warmer tones of other citrus fruits.

Soon the character changes from light yellow to dark green, but it remains cold: mint of the type Fischerfreund. Gradually the cold passes and a little mugginess arises. Swampy coriander, mushroomy thyme and dull lavender produce a mixture that is probably quite daring even for lovers of pronounced herbaceous-green scents. Then a strange note flickers up, slightly burnt and cinnamonish, and causes unrest. It is the sweet and spicy tree blossom Ylang-Ylang, which could have been the highlight of the perfume if unfolded correctly.

After less than half an hour, the scent becomes flatter, freshness and herbaceousness are perdu, only a touch of tender citrus remains. On my skin, which is otherwise so susceptible to wood and moss, the base remains silent. Adding more does not help, this only reinforces the matt-green heart note.

Scusa: "Fresco" is not cool and fresh, rather cold and musty. Too bad that this Cologne develops so mau with me. The eau "Original" by Victor with a similar summery-Hesperidic character, on the other hand, I like exceptionally well

Below-stairs cologne
A bland woody cologne in the citrus and herb style of Blenheim Bouquet.

Without the latter's cut glass enunciation it soon comes to feel breathless, like the interior of a closed room.
