Reviews of Blu Mediterraneo Cedro di Taormina

Really unattractive to me. I like black pepper, but something about this rendition combined with the lemon reminds me of an industrial disinfectant: harshly soapy and abrasive. The woody base is moderately more attractive, but the ride to get there isn’t worth it.

Stunning, loved it from the first moment I smelled it. Amazing blind buy. This one really stands out in my collection, 100% up my alley. If like Bois d'Orage, Amanu, or that type of fragrance, you'll love this one.

A creamy aromatic breezy beauty with an excellent spicy and freshly (citric) balmy dry down of benzoinic vetiver and perfumed mild woods. Classy a la Must de Cartier Pour Homme in style (though not so "sublime and lofty") with hints of "far lands" exoticism. Tonkinian/cardamomish and airy-(vaguely)anisic. A fragrance for yacht clubs and yuppies. A surprise.

I've found that something about the Blu Mediterraneo line tends to work well in the summer heat. Cypresso di Toscana was a favourite of mine before it was discontinued. The woods managed to stay light.

Cedro for me is an extension of that - you get the woods but it wears lightly and doesn't get cloying in the heat. However, they are quite different fragrances.

Cedro opens up with a strong citrus note. After 30 minutes, this citrus calms down, but I was pleasantly surprised at how linear that citrus note stayed throughout the mid and even into the drydown, although the volume of it faded. It wasn't ever too tart or too sharp, but it was definitely pronounced. Although when blended into the woods, these two elements didn't have friction with each other, and come together nicely as a whole. For me, I find that original Acqua di Parma is all about the citrus, but it fades into powder which I don't like. Here, we get woods instead and I think it makes a more rounded, satisfying masculine fragrance.

The heat tended to reactivate the scent throughout the day, so longevity was pretty good.

I was happy with this one. It's one of my fav's in the line (along with Fico di Amalfi) and I'll tentatively say it's a solid replacement for Cypresso di Toscana, which I wish was still available.

Lemony, peppery. No surprises. Dry, citrusy, air-y. Settles into a lightly wooded and vetiver chord. Not complex but well done. Refreshing summer scent. Good persistence on the lemon note.

This is the first EDT in the Blu Mediterraneo line as far as I know. The citron in it is very noticeable when first sprayed, but does disappear within 30 minutes. That being said, the rest of the fragrance is really good. The cedarwood and pepper notes are very well-pronounced. They are actually all I smell after the drydown, which isn't a bad thing. I say that because I appreciate how this one goes down a different path than the standard Acqua Di Parma style of citrus + citrus.

I haven't made up my mind if this is worth a buy just yet. Once the citrus goes away, it smells like a slightly weaker Encre Noire by Lalique. I could buy three bottles of the Lalique for the price of one of these AdP. I do feel like it deserves a thumbs up though because it lasts longer than most others in the same line and the style is unique for the brand.
