Mandarino di Amalfi Acqua invites you to experience a refreshing expression of the Italian coastal paradise from a new point of view. A serene perspective of the Amalfi cliffsides, with their citrus fruits and calm idyll, captures the bright tranquility. At day's close, the air, scented with mint, thyme and wildflowers, mingles with a warm breeze of night-blooming flowers. The fragrance opens with a tour de force of coastal Italian ingredients. The herbaceous scent of mountain air is evoked with tarragon, spearmint, blackcurrant bud and a facetted citrus that showcases the sleek mandarin fruits that grow along the Southern Italian coast. Lemon sfumatricean artisanal, pressed lemon oil of superior integritysurrounds the mandarin, along with bergamot, grapefruit and a touch of neroli, as a twist of basil creates the delectable hint of a basil-limoncello cocktail.
Cool black pepper and coriander seed bring effervescence and lift as they rise up through concentrated orange oil. A floral core emerges delicately, as if from the corners of a summer garden at night; it is made of richest orange flower, clary sage and a duet of jasmine notes that captures the flower's creamy depth as well as its bright, fresh whiteness. Shiso leaf adds an unexpected twist that is as odd and enchanting as a memento from Japan displayed in a grand Mediterranean villa.
The background unfolds with the brightest, liveliest and most luminous aspects of vetiver roots. Amber and labdanum lend texture and an inkling of the sweet oncoming night, while musk and civet bring a pulsing flicker of warmth to the summer evening.
