Although Spring hasn't officially arrived yet, these past couple of days I have been taken full advantage of the sunny weather, and to really emphasise that 'Spring feeling', I have been wearing the Cedro di Taormina by Acqua Di Parma. A perfect scent for those warm, sunny days!

Cedro di Taormina is an Eau De Toilette which has been inspired by the landscapes of Taormina along the Sicily Coast, and is part of the 'Blu Mediterraneo' collection by Acqua Di Parma.

The notes featured within Cedro di Taormina are;

  • Top Notes: Citruses, Petitgrain, Basil
  • Middle Notes: Black Pepper, Lavender
  • Base Notes: Labdanum, Vetiver, Virginian Cedar

The opening is a fresh, bold burst of fruity citrusey notes and has a rich feel to the fragrance with the Citrus notes blending with the Basil creating a green, earthy fragrance. Soon after, Cedro di Taormina takes a different turn, and becomes rather spicy with the Black Pepper note remaining prominent throughout.

During the dry-down, the scent becomes slightly woody, yet still has a very fresh, aquatic feel to it! The sillage is rather light to moderate, a bold opening, but becomes rather subtle as the scent dries down. In terms of the longevity, I would say that this lasted for up to 4-5 hours which given that this is an Eau De Toilette, is pretty impressive! I also want to point out that I am a huge lover of the packaging and how striking, yet simplistic the appearance of the bottle is. 

You can purchase Cedro di Taormina here, and don't forget to take a look at the other fragrances from the Blu Mediterraneo collection!
