Acqua Di Parma Fico Di Amalfi Review: Best With Parmesan On Top

Fico Di Amalfi Acqua Di Parma Perfume Review

Fico Di Amalfi Acqua Di Parma Perfume Review

The main accord of this Acqua Di Parma Perfume puts together fig with lemon, which is the fruit Amalfi is really famous for. Nothing gourmand here then, the fig is indeed quite green. There are more peel and leaves than pulp, the citrus side is stinging and sour, and the green notes make it almost similar to petit-grain.

 

All the above comes with a group of aquatic and floral notes, which give the overall feeling of a whole orchard (same thing happens in the perfumes of the Un Jardin series by Hermes). Acqua Di Parma Fico Di Amalfi is a light summer perfume, but there’s a lot of stuff in it, and its simplicity is only apparent.

 

Yet, something doesn’t quite add up there, and I think that’s because figs and lemons are not smell-mates, IMO. Or maybe, it’s just a matter of balance: would it be better with a stronger fig and a less stinging citrus? Or maybe a buttery gardenia instead of lemon? After all, in real life, figs go well with cheese…
