Reviews of Blu Mediterraneo Tuscan Cypress / Cipresso di Toscana

I get strong rosemary I notice in Cool Water and basil which dominate the citrus. After awhile the floral and lavender kick in. The pine is ever present and eventually the other woods show up. It's a pass for me. The people who would like this the most would be into sport scents. This is the kind of thing I would smell in the locker-room.

Clean and gentle fresh cologne. A bit anonymous - and frankly also a bit "toilet freshener" - but you may take it as "understated". Totally un-worthy the price tag.

I can fully understand why some people would hate this - the opening of this now discontinued fragrance is pure pine fresh toilet cleaner. If you can hang on for 5 minutes until the loud initial blast of pine wears off you are left with a wonderful citrus, basil and salty Mediterranean cypress smell that is very light and summery as well as smoky, with medium longevity of a few hours (which is much longer than the rest of this range!!) Shame it was discontinued as lovers of pine scents (like me) will really dig this stuff, it smells like walking through scorching hot pine trees on a sun baked mediterranean island..

If you can find it the also discontinued body wash of Cipresso di Toscana is wonderful too

Pros: one of the purest pine scents around
Cons: can smell like toilet cleaner"</p>

A woody lavender very reminiscent of 80s scents like Drakkar Noir. Nicely made and deserves its fan base, but the opposite of unique.

Gorgeous cypress and vetiver mainly. Smells really natural, with average lasting power. Very pleasant and unique. It has indeed a barber shop vibe, which in my opinion makes it refined and classic.

A woody smoky Duchoufour masterpiece worthy of the CDG Incense collection hiding away in a dusty corner of the Acqua Di Parma line, Cipresso di Toscana never really makes the big best-of lists or comes up in conversations about Avignon and Timbuktu and the great modern wood scents, though it should.

The cypress note is fantastic. I have no idea how it's done, but I smell hawthorn, like yellow wood burnished with honey, spectacularly displayed for once without its omnipresent 80's chypre buddies. There's that Sables immortelle that smells like smoky maple syrup, and a dark pine, bordering on leathery, that mostly hides in the background providing darkness and only occasionally shooting out a tendril of dark forest smell.

There's also the dark smoky sweet rubber of Fahrenheit or Bulgari Black, as well a fantastic campfire oud that reminds me of Kilian's excellent Pure Oud and even a pinch of vanilla that never feels gourmand, but instead adds a sense of richness to everything.

Sillage and longevity are great. It should be said that, with all the different smells I've listed here, Cipresso di Toscana actually forms a cohesive whole and smells like its own unique thing more so than all the notes I'm listing. It just shoots out constantly shifting sillage that goes from note to note and theme to theme, always keeping me entertained.
