Acqua e Zucchero - Profumum Durante Roma

Ok, here's the scoop. Yes, I know, inquiring minds want to know! Acqua e Zucchero has been a tough one for me to figure out. So I was hoping to get a better impression. Beautifully crafted and well blended to the point the notes are hard to pick out. The site says the notes are: Fruitti Rossi, Orange Blossom, Vanilla. But I smell a sophisticated marine opening note. Not your typical marine note, but as if the sea and air and salt accords have been rolled into one. I don't get red fruit, or orange blossom and not even distinct vanilla. I am anxious to try more from this line and will keep you informed when I do.

This Italian one can only be purchased in Italy - they have a store in Rome and a retailer in Milan. Here is the web site in Italian: http://www.profumum.com

It sounds great. I have often thought that the smell of sugar cane is sort of marine itself.
