    Would love to try this Chinotto di Liguria as it sounds interesting.

    It’s very heavy on the jasmine with a sprinkle of herbs that makes it veer strongly to the feminine side with some green feeling notes (chinotto?) and very subdued citrus. It’s in the vein of a late 70s EDC once it dries down even though it opens like an old lady perfume.

    Pass.

    I sprayed Chinotto di Liguria in Europe. The top has a citrusy note with some bitterness (chinotto is indeed somewhat bitter), which I quite like. I didn't pay attention to the drydown so I don't know how it evolves. I'll be revisiting it. I like body products, so I'm happy that AdP makes some of them (even if they are overpriced).

    OK - Thanks for the update. Probably then a pass for me also.

    Got a chance to smell this today in Europe and didn't think it was bad.
