Negative Reviews of Blu Mediterraneo Mirto di Panarea by Acqua di Parma

Very nice fruity and fresh... and lasts about 15 minutes (if that) before it fades to nothing.

For me, the Blu Mediterraneo line has been an unmitigated failure. Despite valiant attempts to inject fresh and original concepts into the Acqua di Parma brand, one has to back them up with products that fulfill their brief. Mirto is subtle in construction and it takes a decidedly cautious approach to the opening, its take on the citrus accord was excessively muted and lacking in bite. The introduction of the floral heart notes do little to enliven matters, and one is left with the feeling that this was cobbled together, a result of some random experiment in blending ingredients. Looking at the pyramid, the architecture should have provided something fresh, engaging and enchanting, but instead one is subjected to something bland, trite and mediocre. The only saving grace was that it suffered from the same brevity issue as all the other Mediterraneo fragrances.
