Even if the name Assolo may sound something like A**hole for an english speaking, in italian it simply means "Solo" and it obviously refers to a musical solo. The concept behind this fragrance is to celebrate the apple note as if it were the main voice of an orchestra, and the result is quite successful.
Assolo opens with a blast of astringent artemisia, lime and unripe green apple immediately joined by slight floral patterns and a strong, almost scratchy, woody (cedar and teak) base. The overall effect is of a quite persistent "fresh" composition that's pretty enjoyable throughout (assuming you're into consistent woody fragrances). Good.
Assolo is available as EDT and as part of the Les Concentrés (EDP?).
