Bergamotto di Calabria will be the next release from Acqua di Parma’s Blue Mediterraneo range:
Unleashes all the sun-splashed beauty [of] the southern Mediterranean coast…
Fico di Amalfi is the latest release from Acqua di Parma’s Blu Mediterraneo line. The fragrance features notes of tangerine, bergamot, lemon, grapefruit, cedar, fig nectar, pink pepper, jasmine, fig wood, musk and cedar.
Fico di Amalfi starts with dry, very tart citrus. The fig comes on as the citrus settles, but it is subtle, considerably more so than in my all time favorite of favorites (in the fig category, that is), Diptyque Philosykos. As in Philosykos, the fig is dry and woody, and does not have a particularly foody feel. Fico di Amalfi is a bit less green, and has a nice kick of pink pepper over the woody base…
Acqua di Parma's Blu Mediterraneo line is being revamped in preparation for a relaunch in April:
When Blu Mediterraneo was originally launched in 1999, it featured about 50 products, including five fragrances. Those will be discontinued this year and a redesigned Blu Mediterraneo collection will comprise 15 items, including three scents, which will be launched worldwide on April 1.
The 3 remaining fragrances will be Relaxing Capri Orange, Invigorating Tuscan Cypress and Pampering Sicilian Almond. (via Women's Wear Daily)
