breath of floral and woody notes that characterize the Mediterranean coast

Light, fresh, subtle. I especially like the faint earthy undertone. The official description mentions narcissus and one could certainly imagine an expanse of these flowers growing on a mossy bank somewhere near the sea. Villoresi puts it on the feminine side of the gender divide, and was intending at one time to introduce a more masculine counterpart. I would disagree here and in fact this is among the few fragrances I use personally. It reminds me a little of a popular mens fragrance from years ago called Prestige Extra Dry by Wolff & Sohn, Karlsruhe, Germany. One also picks up the rose-patchouli accord as in Aramis 900. As always personal resonances are important, and this composition also puts me in mind of a wonderful fragrance for men offered by Robertet Grasse in the early 1960's, called Cedraya. I have very little of that precious essence left, but I catch fleeting glimpses of its beauty in Aura Maris, so I had no hesitation in buying a bottle. I should add, having got my personal memoirs out of the way, that Aura Maris is anything but old fashioned, but on the contrary displays a thoroughly modern type of freshness. Thankfully this is not on a par with CK1, Cool Water Woman, and suchlike, but much superior.

True "shared" fragrance far superior to CK ONE! Light and breezy green and citrusy. Woods and patchouli give AURA MARIS a heft and dignity that does not intrude on the lighter notes. This is a "go to" fragrance for everyone in the daytime for casual wear. Lasts approximately 5 hours on skin/clothes before fading away to pure citrus plain and simple. This serves it's purpose in a wardrobe of heavy hitters. Perfect for young and professional as well as older and established men and women.

Lorenzo Villoresi - Aura Maris
A very average sea-breezed Eau de Cologne that tries to imitate all of its lookalikes made before it. Mixed in a slobby fashion with a nice lemony opening, a soapy lavender with a soft neroli floralness, and a cooked green spiciness that floats on sea-breezy and transparant-woody synthetics. It has a 'misty' feel to its structure that misses a certain grip to keep my attention on a high level. Pleasant it is, but not more than that - it is smelled, seen and forgotten...
