Excerpt: I have been wearing Alessandro Dell Aqua for so many years I have not and I mean not been able to find anything near its fragrance for my body and I am truly devastated that it is not available
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Great Value, Not Overpowering, Sensual, Sexy
Summary: A nice, almost classic-smelling flowery aldehydic chypre along the lines of VC&A's First (though cheapened up a bit), topped with candy-sweet lemon. It reminds me of 80's Estee Lauder - loud and pretty and way better than most of the current dreck selling at similar prices, but lacking the true depth of the all-time classics.
Summary: I was interested in trying this fragrance because of the sweet pea top note ( a noshow; why is this one so hard to get right?) After getting my hands on a sample I have decided to give it a neutral. I don't dislike this scent but it is not right for me. It is seductive, a little strong (excellent sillage) with a musk bottom note that is not too cloying. It's best suited for evening and would encourage anyone who likes distinctive musk scents to give it a try.
