    Hybrid vigor
    In any hybrid you're looking for the best of both worlds. I have a labradoodle, a dod bred for service. The goal of the breeding is to combine the intelligence and trainability of the poodle with the human affiliation and low-key temperament of the labradors retriever. The risk of the mix is getting the reverse and having a high-strung, stupid dog.
    The eponymous perfume hybrids shout their goal to the heavens: Fruity floral. Rose chypre. Floral leather. Aromatic fougère. Floriental. Acqua Fiorentina makes me wonder if there is an antonym to synergy. Is there a word for the whole being less than the sum of the parts?

    Tools for self-destruction
    The disparity between the reality of the worse Creed perfumes and the particularly vapid style of their marketing hyperbole is a sort of performance piece. The inequality is charged enough that as in a fairy tale, it simply comes to life.

    From the Creed Aqua Fiorentina webpage (version, The Encore 2012):

    Description - Sixth-generation master perfumer Olivier Creed re-introduces a fresh new blend of the beloved fragrance. He adds a lively touch of Diamond Jubilee Apple to mark sixty years of Queen Elizabeth's reign, along with beautiful Renaissance rose, Calabrian lemon, plum and white carnation. This encore offers a fresh harmonious scent that will delight her for any occasion.

    Classification - Fruitful / Fresh

    Characteristics - A long-awaited scent richly deserved by Creed’s loyal clientele who lavished praise on the original blend.

    Notes:
    Top note: Lightly sweet greengage plum, often used in cuisine as a dessert plum, Diamond Jubilee Apples and pruneau are the opening notes.
    Middle note: Renaissance roses, white carnations, Florentine pear, Sicilian bergamot and Calabrian lemons are a fine serenade of fruits and blooms.
    Base note: Virginia cedar and Indian sandalwood are a heart-charming close, with a lively hint of white grapefruit.

    Epilogue:
    Creed's own excessive protestations tell you more about the nightmare of Acqua Fiorentina than I could ever hope to.  

    I used to think the greatest job in the world would be to be a voice actor for the Simpsons. 20+ years of Hollywood pay coupled with anonymity. What could be better? Now I think sitting around with friends, smoking piles of weed, writing Creed press and pissing yourself laughing would be the greatest job in the world. (I assume that that's how the job must be done.)

    I leave you to the serenade of fruits and blooms. Buon appetito.

    Like a high quality version of D&G Light Blue for women. More fruity than floral with the plum note being quite dominant to my nose. Took me less than 2 minutes after smelling it to buy it for my wife. She loved it!

    A citrus fruity-floral that is beautiful. It comes off as a nicely transparent feminine scent that can be worn anytime. The citrus balances the fruit while the floral notes are not so overpowering as to be cloying. My wife could not get enough of Love in Black before trying this (I am not fond of the syrupy LiB, so was super excited she found this.)

    Give this one a try ladies, and you will not be disappointed.

    Quite a disappointment, this one. I expected a lavish fruity-floral, with a hyper-realistic greengage. In tiny doses, the plum is dynamic, but anything more than a drop results in a somewhat-synthetic and cloying rose/plum/cedar combo. The plum is still the best part, because the rose is rather flat, and the citrusy aquatic notes surrounding it do nothing to add to the rest of the construct. I don't mean to say that Acqua Fiorentina smells bad - it's amiable, and it boasts better note separation and clarity than 95% of its fruity-aquatic brethren. But ultimately, for the money, this perfume is forgettable. For rose with non-edible green notes, try Red Roses by Jo Malone instead.

    A nice floral aquatic and it smells so beautiful for a woman. Ladies that are reading you cannot go wrong with this fragrance and you could wear it everyday.

    Creed Acqua Fiorentina

    There are many times when I wear the best of fragrances from Creed that I am impressed with what they do with just a few notes. One of the latest successes in that area, for me, is the 2009 release Acqua Fiorentina. According to the note list this should be a fruity floral but on my skin it is a citrus plum wood fest and I never catch even a whiff of either of the listed floral notes of rose and carnation.

    Instead Acqua Fiorentina starts with a tart lemon note which is paired with an equally bright plum note. This mix of sweet and sour is really well done. The plum is lush and juicy while the lemon is austere and sparkling. From here the clean woodiness of cedar comes into play and it is the appropriate counter point for the fruit of the top. The base is a warm and creamy sandalwood and that transition also works nicely.

    Acqua Fiorentina has average longevity and modest sillage both of which are surprising coming from Creed.

    I have to say from a juice that is pink to a simple but compelling development I am surprised at how good Acqua Fiorentina is. It's probably a good lesson to not judge a juice by its color.
