Synthetic metallic citrus with no body to it whatsoever, Run of the mill spice (lavender, rosemary) and citrus (bergamot). Too light to even be detectable.
I am not sure if it's the same stuff that Foetidus is writing about; I have a sample vial that says Palladio/Michaelangelo. Well, no matter, I like it. It reminds me of Gianfranco Ferre pour homme; bright, light, Italian and mostly pleasant. There's an undertone of bug spray but I don't mind. Good for a party on the deck!
There's not really much to say about Palladio. It can be described in few words and even fewer concepts: The opening is made up of pure lavender and bergamot synthetics and metallic cheapness, so bad that it makes the worst Hugo fragrances seem 100% natural. The citruses in the middle notes wait for the synthetic top notes to expire just so they, too, can offer their synthetic and metallic cheapness to the fragrance. If I could smell any dry down, I’ll bet that they would be revoltingly synthetic and metallic, too.
