    New formulation with the greenish juice.(I never had the vintage)

    I reminds me Rive Gauche but with weaker longevity and half the class. The opening is very strong and the massive amount of bergamot makes it too sweet. Massive projection for 2 or 3 hours and than nothing... Very linear... No evolution and you don't have that unique drydown after few hours of wear. Did I mentioned the word synthetic?

    Genre: Fougère

    I wore this scent as a kid, and it still brings back fond memories. When it was new Tuscany's cheerful spiced citrus fougère accord made a pleasant alternative to the curl-your-nose-hairs power scents that were its contemporaries. It was substantial, but never overpowering, with a happy expression and a jaunty gait. It's still a quality scent, and smelling it now points up just how dreadful are the aquatic eunuchs that the kids wear these days. Why they still make something this good in today's market is beyond me - maybe they've just forgotten to discontinue it.

    Herbaceous, sparkling, and utterly Mediterranean, Tuscany really is a gem of a scent. Lime rind, geranium, anise, sandalwood - everything here is almost sweet. Tuscany eternally hovers at the line of sweet and savory and never truly picks a side. I can name plenty of fragrances that walk this path but few that pull it of with such aplomb or which smell so natural and satisfying.

    Tuscany is a scent that truly captures the feel of the place it's named for. There are several fragrances that I think of as distinctly "Italian" with their various blends of dry citrus and culinary herbs. Tuscany's pedigree may well begin with the Nine Flags take on Italy --- Dry Citrus --- in the late 60's, and the family also includes Faberge's Cellini in the 70's, Azzaro pour Homme, Adidas original, Laura Biagiotti's Roma and Venezia, Mediterraneum, and Calvin Klein's discontinued Calvin, all of which include similar components.

    Tuscany's pyramid includes MUCH more than the three ingredients listed above. H&R's Fragrance Guide lists the notes as follows:

    Top: Lavender, bergamot, anise, lime, marjoram, lemon, petitgrain
    Middle: Cedarwood, patchouli, geranium, carnation, basil, cinnamon
    Base: Moss, amber, musk, leather, tonka

    While Tuscany is not one of my most-worn fragrances, every time I do wear it, I am transported to sunny Firenze and the surrounding countryside. Molto Bene!

    Another winner from Aramis. So glad they brought back Tuscany, New West, Devin, and Aramis 900. All four are outstanding Classics.

    Tuscany is a captivating fragrance that exudes richness and class. It is fresh, clean, manly and ideal for daily use or special occasions. I get many compliments when I wear this fragrance. Although I do like the original packaging better. I highly recommend this fragrance!

    Bright and straight

    The opening blast is a light, very nice elegant bergamot, that is bright like a warm day on a Mediterranean field. The drydown adds a fresh floral geranium note, and the third stage is characterized by a soft and smooth patchouli. These are a few straightforward components only, but they are of very decent quality and very well blended, really harmoniously developing throughout the lifespan of this scent. This classic demonstrates that one does not need dozens of different notes to make a convincing product: sometimes less is indeed more.
