Parco Palladiano I by Bottega Veneta

Quite bright in its opening set, it develops soon into a floral - magnolia with whiffs of oleander floral that develops a woodsy side further into the drydown.

Towards the base there are whites musks added in, and a slightly warmer note of an ambery quality develops toward the end, but the latter is rather weak and perfunctory.

I get moderate silage, adequate projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.

Quite a standard set of ingredients is used in the spring scent, and, apart from the floral part, they are a bit on the generic and pale side. Not bad, but a bit too simple and generic.    2.75/5
