Acqua Di Parmi Blu Mediterraneo Fico d'Amalfi

Notes: bergamot, grapefruit, lemon, orange, tangerine, cedar leaves, jasmine, rose, pink pepper, fig nectar, cedarwood, fig wood, guaiac wood

Vibrant citrus notes, starting with grapefruit and rapidly segueing into orange and tangerine, are blended with the sweet smell of ripe figs and shaded with woods to recreate the fragrance of a warm day on the coast of Amalfi.

Some fig fragrances are too green for my liking; this one, however, nicely balances a bit of green with a sweeter, riper fig with floral overtones.  As the scent dries down, the jasmine and rose are more noticeable, and some of the usually-fleeting citrus notes are still present.  Fico d'Amalfi is sheer and summery, a happy scent that is a great mood enhancer, and I think, completely unisex.
