Blu Mediterraneo Mirto di Panarea

Notes: myrtle, bergamot, Calabrian lemon, sweet orange, basil, jasmine, rose, green lilac, sea accord, blackcurrant, lentisc, juniper, cedarwood, amber

Inspired by the exclusive island of Panarea, Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Mirto evokes the nature and spirit of a Mediterranean landscape. I bought it after one sniff at last year's Spring Sniffapalooza. It's zippy and sunny, fresh and bracing, and completely unisex. The opening is citrussy, happy with lemon and orange, then herbal, with a woodsy drydown that still has traces of citrus. It plays well with other AdP Blu Mediterraneo scents; use Arancia for still more citrus and some sweetness; Fico to add another Mediterranean note.

I love just about every scent in this line, but I think Mirto may well be my favorite.
