Acqua Di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Mandorlo Di Sicilia

Sicily is a crossroads of art and culture, with the almond as part of the local tastes and traditions. Known in Italian as Mandorlo di Sicilia, the soothing appeal of Sicilian almond opens this delicious fragrance. Its sweet caress joins notes of star anise, bergamot, and orange. The fragrance’s heart blends green Mediterranean almond and ylang-ylang before base notes of cedar wood, vanilla, and white musk emerge. Notes: Sicilian Almond, Star Anise, Bergamot, Orange, Green Mediterranean Almond, Ylang-Ylang, Cedar Wood, Vanilla, and White Musk. Style: Delicious. Sweet. Soothing.

Questions & Answers for Acqua Di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Mandorlo Di Sicilia

Question
Is this fragrance sugary-sweet or musky? Would it be good for summer? Is the Vanilla Prominent?
I'm looking for a lighter, fresher, vanilla scent but nothing too sweet like Pink Sugar/Prada Candy, or too musky. How would you describe this fragrance? is it like either of those? Would make a good summer scent? Is the vanilla prominent? What kind of vanilla is it?

I would say it is quite sweet but not excessive like Prada Candy. Definitely for summer - warm, humid summer days are perfect for this fragrance.

It is a sweet almondy vanilla; like marzipan, or like a French macaron cookie. The vanilla is prominent, but it is not cloying like Pink Sugar. It does not smell like a 5 year old spilled a bottle of caramel syrup. It is sophisticated, and the anise adds a tiny bit of a fresh note. I highly recommend it.
