Great for a summer day, but Carlo Colucci is almost too well-made in order to need a lighter, revorked, more watery and more casual version. Still, good to be worn on a frequent basis and discreet not to be either too heavy, but without showing to much personality or sophistication either. Tough the fragrance house that bred this scent created both enduringly stylish and at the same time moderately priced creations- just to mention Tabac...
Easy-to-wear and light enough to refresh troughout a torrid climate, maybe targeted at a very young age group ( one that hasn't much appetite for more conservative scents). Maybe, it's the same problem as with Roma- with whom the original Carlo Colucii resembles- tough Acqua di Roma is a good scent too, Roma was so flawless that it left no room for subsequent versions. The same thing might apply for Carlo Colucci Mare, or, again, as it happened with Agua Brava Sea Power, once you got the sheer, unmistaken real chypre, a reworked watery-youthful-casual version of it only adds an unremarkable note of commonplace, unmanly sweetness ( notable exception Boss Elements Aqua which equals and almost surpasses the elegance, distinction and originality of Elements) without any real extra but a few notes which might as well have lacked completely.
