Parco Palladiano II

A slightly salty fresh with a green undertone - this is a pleasant opening. On the bright side, it exudes more of the smooth freshness; there is little crispness or sharpness when I wear this.

In the drydown whiffs of a nonspecific woodsiness are present, and the juniper is evident. It is not overly synthetic and not bad at all. The base sees a fresh, nigh marine side returning at a stronger level.

I get moderate silage, very good projection and am excellent ten hours of longevity on my skin.

This is a nice spring scent that also works well for cooler summer days at the seaside. Sure, the juniper is synthetic and a touch generic - this is no Baie de Genièvre - but not overly so. Hovering at the border between neutral, the excellent performance elevates it - just - into the positive realm.     3/5
