Created by perfumer Maurice Roucel, Acqua Santa is a breathtakingly bright and clean composition that emphasises beautiful aqueous accords alongside fresh green notes, with a scent that recalls the vibrancy of the Mediterranean sun. A subtle, complex opening of bergamot and tangy cassis plays host to a soft patchouli, deftly handled so its creamy warmth serves to give body to the bracing green notes while not overpowering them. A rich floral heart of rose, ylang ylang, and jasmine is shot through with clean, transparent cyclamen for lightness, before a sumptuous base of tonka bean and rich caramel warms the scent in its final moments for an addictive, beguiling final effect. Adorned with precious 21 carat platinum plating, the chic avant-garde bottle is as opulent as the scent itself.

A very beautiful perfume which ticks all but one box. The box I label 'wow it is amazing' I can't tick as this lovely scent is just that - a very lovely scent but not incredible. It is supposed to be unisex but I would think better on a woman as it is quite sweet in an orangery way. The bergamot which appears at the beginning is fresh and lively and there are some lasting light herbal notes throughout. You won't go wrong wearing it at any event, it smells expensive which you want if a product actually is, and no one could possibly dislike it in any way. It just doesn't stand out as having it's own unique personality but some may want exactly that 'safety' in a scent.
