Fico di Amalfi, an Italian fragrance inspired by the gorgeous Amalfi, Italy; a town in a dramatic natural setting below steep cliffs on Italy’s southwest coast.
Fico di Amalfi was presented in 2006 as a floral-fruity fragrance for women, later presented as unisex and it truly is. Much like how Tom Ford’s Portofino inspired by a town in Italy, Acqua diParma’s take is Amalfi.
With top notes bringing in the Italian breeze from the Mediterranean, you get a fresh and sweet burst of bergamot, orange, luminous lemon, dazzling bittery grapefruit and mandarin wood. The heart is composed fig, and jasmine, while a base is full of musk, cedar and fig milk.
Beautiful creation and nothing synthetic about this. Fresh and gorgeous from the start. There’s more grapefruit in this than fig but don’t let that full you the delicious fig is in there. Pure spring/summer fragrance that you can’t go wrong with a little overspray.
Sweet but without the headache inducing sweetness. The sweetness here is super fresh as you’d get from a fruit medley. Also classy, this fragrance can be worn dressed up no problem, a wedding at the beach for example would be perfect for this scent.
Highley comparable to Cartier Declaration L’eau, I find the two very similar but sligthly unqiue respectively.
House of Parfum rating of 8/10. Superb scent but lacks in longevity problems. Will need re-application.
