OUR ALTERNATIVE TO:
Acqua di Parma Mandorlo di Sicilia
This perfume oil is inspired by: Mandorlo di Sicilia (Blu Mediterraneo) by Aqua di Parma.
This is a gorgeous light gourmand scent. This is such a comforting scent, not too sweet. Can be worn in summer and winter. Lovely.
This is a comforting, sweet, almost powdery scent reminiscent of orange creamsicles with a touch of anise. Leans feminine but a man could wear it. Even though it is sweet, rich with vanilla, I would wear this all year round. This is an absolute love for me!
This is Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo - Mandorlo di Sicilia in a roll-on oil concentration! Zoha's version has everything ADP has at a fraction of the price and better performance. The accuracy of Zoha's Silica is pretty spot on! If you love CREAM SODA, then you'll love this fragrance! It is definitely unisex which appeals to even a broader spectrum of people. I can smell nutty almonds (kinda like in BR540) with a sweet dose of bourbon vanilla! I do smell a little bit of charred wood in the far back of this fragrance as well. It can be cloying if over applied, but it isn't a dark scent.
I can definitely see this being a great fragrance to wear near the coast of the Mediterranean Sea with a hot gyro sandwich (tzatziki sauce hugging the lamb/beef cuts)in one hand and the other with an ice cold limeade. It is fun and playful with a warming feel to it due to the almond & vanilla combination. I would recommend this for a great late spring/summer fragrance. It can be worn on the beach or to a nice patio bar. The performance is surprisingly good for the type of scent it is and like I stated in the beginning of this review, if you are looking for an inexpensive alternative to ADP Mandorlo di Sicilia, then look no further.
