    Default basenotes of Blu Mediterraneo Capri Arancia?

    I just tried this today and liked it. *Is it supposed to be unisex? *I saw it in the men's department. *The orange was obvious, but a nice summer change from my usual lemon. *It wasn't too sweet, more of an orange version of verbena and lemon. *But I can't quite place the basenotes - they're warm and woody (cedar and something else?) and still lingering on me four hours later. *Does anyone have a breakdown for this fragrance?

    Thanks!

    Absynthium, thanks for the response. Do you mean that you liked both fragrances, or that you like them worn together at the same time? The Mandorlo was interesting, but the almond topnote was a bit sweet for me. I didn't try it on though, but probably will. I wish it smelled a little more like almond blossoms instead of toasted almonds; I'm afraid I'll just smell like cookies.

    Please don't apologize, your English is marvelous! I only asked because layering fragrances is such a common practice and wasn't sure if that was what you meant. But I suspected you just liked both all along.

    Thank you for the suggestion of Heliotrope. I think I saw this somewhere, but didn't try it as I had already sampled too many fragrances that day. And I will try the marndorlo on my skin, because it may be so different that way and less sweet.
