Captivating. Fresh. Tantalising. Just a few words that describe how Tom Ford- Neroli Portofino Acqua, smells to me.
Tom Ford's iconic Neroli Portofino fragrance, has been expanded into a further two different fragrances; Neroli Portofino Forté and Neroli Portofino Acqua. I'd known about these two fragrances for a while now, and having read a couple of online reviews of these, the Acqua seemed to appeal to me more.
I'd waited for what felt like years, for the releases of these two fragrances! I'm completely besotted with the Tom Ford brand, so I always get the feeling of ultimate satisfaction whenever I'm able to get my hands on his latest scents. Neroli Portofino Acqua launched in early March 2016 and the notes of this fragrance consist of: Neroli, Bergamot, Lemon, Lavender, Rosemary and Citruses.
The standout feature to Neroli Portofino Acqua, is the fact that it's an Eau De Toilette. Whilst the initial spray of this is bold, the dry down of this is quite soft and the sillage is light to medium. Whenever I spray this, it instantly transports me to a hotter climate, laid on the beach somewhere with a Vodka Lemonade in my hand. Now, this may sound slightly puzzling, yet I find Acqua to be very similar to Tom Ford's Mandarino Di Amalfi.. Does anybody else feel that way too?
Another standout feature of this has to be the bottle itself! The fragrance comes in Tom Ford's signature bottle, however the Neroli Portofino Acqua bottle is made from frosted glass! It is stunning. By far, my favourite bottle design! A fragrance just perfect for Spring, and one of my favourites for this time of year! Neroli Portofino Acqua comes in 50ml and 100ml. It is available to purchase in most designer stores and can be purchased here.
