Reviews of Oltremare

Tried this in a quest for more rhubarb. Very disappointed, while the rhubarb is there it is sweet and not very tart. And to echo NickZee, this is most certainly VERY feminine leaning unisex. Perhaps it's me and tea notes, I don't know - I find Silver Mountain Water very feminine leaning also.

I didn't give a negative despite being disappointed because it is very nice - on my girlfriend, not me. It has staying power for a summer frag which is impressive. If the rhubarb was more tart I think I could pull it off, it's just too fruity.

Opens with a nuclear blast of citrus and rhubarb - almost photorealistic, crispy, crunchy rhubarb. This is an incredibly tangy, zesty fragrance citrus fragrance with a warm base of amber, sandalwood, and patchouli. A bit of ozone from the violet, a bit of floral, and an herbal quality from the tea and mate. It does smell similar to other fragrances I've smelt before, but I can't quite place which. I think that it might be a female fragrance that it reminds me of, as this definitely leans more feminine to my nose, though it's still quite unisex. This is definitely evocative of dark, deep blue waters in the Mediterannean, and it's fantastically refreshing. Will be wearing this a lot in the hot weather.

Here are the notes according to the Bois 1920 website.

Top: Green Lemon, Italian Bergamot, Brazillian Sweet Orange, Bigarade, Sicilian Yellow Lemon, Limette

Heart: Mate Leaves, Red Tea, Juniper Berries, Rhubarb, Egyptian Geranium, Violet Leaves, Dutch Hyacinth, Mugane™

Dry down: Indian Sandalwood, White Musk, Ambergris, Indonesian Patchouli, Orcanox™

Fresh rhubarb is the distinctive feature here, folks. Very tart and bracing, and smells just like a freshly-cut stalk. Very crisp and zesty. Some silvery violet leaf lurking in the background. A lightly sweet musky in the dry-down. Interesting, not compelling in my estimation.

Smells like a women's fruitchouli (mademoissel, miss dior, etc.) but a bit lighter. Very nice but not appropriate for macho men and done too many times for women.

Outstanding fragrance! I am in heaven....fruity, with a bit of a woodsy base. Somewhat reminds me of D&G l'imperatrice but with more cedar or at least what smells like cedar. Both men and women will adore this!! Sillage is confusing, at points throughout the fragrance where you think that you cannot detect this, however, every so often you get a whiff and determine its still there. Longevity is great; 6-8 hours flat! In fact, I just purchased a backup bottle just in case...
