Got this ina a travel box edition...5 beautiful bottles and a bottle case...50 ml. of perfume in a cute Etro box...
well, I bought it unsniffed, but as usuall it takes just to read beautiful reviews and since Etro and Parfums d'Empire are my all time favourites-I decided to buy it just because..
and just because the price was really funny...It is expensive house, but I manage to get 50 mils (1.7 oz) for lousy 20 $...:DD
and when I sprayed it on it seemed to me that this scent has something sooo familiar, something sooo beautiful yet I couldn't put my finger on it....and after a while when it started to develop I remembered- this perfume is Caron Nocturnes spot on!
it has the same vintagey-flowery quality, summery creaminess, vanilla, and generic but amazing combo of white flowers...
yes...if you tried Caron you can get the idea about this one, and vice versa....
It so happened that Caron's Nocturnes is quite often compared to some base notes of Chanel No 5. and ...yeah, I can see that!!this beautiful, serene beginning of this scent reminds me (with its creamyness and ''dirtyness) od Chanel No 5...and when I say dirtyness, Etro has the cleanest ''dirtyness'' of all perfumes that I know ...this house somehow manages (just like PdE, and Diptyque) to stay very rich, very prominent, simple, but amazingly complex,aethereal,aquatic, fairylike...never loosing they're subtleness, never ever going over the top, and mind you Etro has a very sweet Dianthus, Heliotrope, very peppery Etra, very spicy and aromatic Magot.....just like Diptyque has hot and spiced Eau Lente, loud and swoon Olene, hardcore beautiful Tam Dao, dry and woody Philosykos.....and all of these gems are so masterfully blended!!!
I admire the poeple behind all of these scents!
as for Etro Vicolo fiori, as the time goes by, it begins to slowly turn into a poetry, a cold white flowered water with vanilla....
smells extremely vintage and old in a best way possible...
lovers of Guerlain, Caron and Etro scents in generall-this is a winner!!

floral und light. like small white pedals of magical sparkles hiding around the whole body. i really love it, although it does not last that long, but however it isnt supposed to be a powerful parfum. Great for sommer und even for the cloudy winter.

This is a very light easy going fragrance with very little lasting power. While the aroma is pleasant upon application after about 1 hour it becomes very faint. I will finish off the samples which I have but definitely will not purchase a full size.

I find this an extemely unobtrusive floral that I wear every day. I don't perceve it as being a particually female fragrance in appeal--No more than say Habit Rouge, Rose d'Homme , Hammam Bouquet or Ajaccio Violets-All much more strongly floral and all marketed for men.
I will happily buy the 8oz bottle when my small one runs out!

Pretty, but as many others have stated, very synthetic. It is very hard to pinpoint because of its many different facets. It is round and smooth, but is also very high-pitched and gives me a bit of a headache, all the while begging me to sniff it. The lotus and rose combine nicely, but the aquatic quality rubs me the wrong way. If BBW Cherry Blossom and Davidoff Cool Water had a love-child on a Mediterranean holiday, this would be it. The lotus in it puts me in mind of the lotus in Yves Rocher's Ming Shu. It is like looking at a picture of the seaside in Italy; lovely, but synthetic. It would be well-suited to an office, as it is quite unoffensive and generic, but it is too boring for this oriental/rose-lover.

It can be cute but I agree that it is a bit common and boring floral scent, not very original.

This is my summer and day off fragrance. I'm surprised it works so well for me, citrus frequently turns dusty on me and vanilla is a monster on my skin. It is a sparkling citrus with soft lotus and amber notes. Exactly what I have been looking for. On a hot day the sillage is amazing, lasting power is good, DH loves it. I do think the price is a bit much for a EDT. Lovely bottle.

Floreal, ultrafeminine, roses and bon-bon. Roses cut on a May morning, overwhelming white flower and timid bloom of the waterlily.Nice description, fragrance is soft, feminine and pretty. At first I get distinct citrus notes with soft flowers, barely there even. Over time and with the heat of skin, the fragrance blooms and I agree with everyone else it becomes generic and a little nose-hurting hairsprayish/aquatic. Bottom line is that it's nice just nothing special but would be suitable for daytime wear.

RIS and totally love it. Very soft sweet scent that I just keep sniffing, so yummy! Glad to find out it has vanilla in it. I'm comparing this one to Gucci Eau de parfum 11 as a very easy going everyday can't go wrong perfume. So grown up, classy and unoffensive. Can't wait to buy me a big bottle. I thought nothing would beat out my new fav Gucci 11 but it ties it. And to say that says a lot because every night I go to bed doing comparison tests and I have tons of samples. You know I love Gucci 11 when I compare every other perfume to it, because it is the lightest and easist way to distinguish the other notes that are more potent. Etro Vicolo Fiore is what a lady should smell like.

this will be a quick review ,just like the scent it came it left quicky. It is not offensive but it is not special either a very quiet perfume. Even for me a light fume lover it is very light.

A very clean, nice floral. As another reviewer mentioned, it reminds me a little of L'Ombre dans l'Eau, not really because they smell similar, but because they're both clean florals instead of cloying florals. Vicolo Fiore isn't the most original fragrance in the world, but one that would be perfect on a casual day when you're looking for something fresh and non-offensive.

This is my favorite every day fragrance. I was captivated by Etro’s description and ordered a sample from Aedes. I was not disappointed! Vicolo Fiori transports me to an afternoon in a European city square filled with cafes, a bakery, a flower shop, a fruit stand; all the scents intermingling into an uplifting evocative experience! My BF is particularly fond of it;-) But the scent also stays close to my skin so I don't overwhelm co-workers, et al. Notes include tangerine, campanula, water lily, lotus, cyclamen, wild rose, ylang-ylang, white peach, cantaloupe, iris, musk, amber, vanilla, sandalwood.

Vicolo Fiore is a watery, aquatic scent that somehow manages to be milky and cozy and also delicate and floral, all at the same time. The sweet lemon and vanilla combination are very reminscent of La Perla Eclix, but perhaps crossed with the more watery, prickly-berry side of Diptque's L'Ombre dans L'Eau and a dash of some very unobtrusive white florals tossed in for good measure. A nice, subtle, non-overwhelming gourmand-floral hybrid good for everyday use, but all the same, not too inspiring of a scent.

I found Vicolo Fiori somewhat disappointing. There was a synthetic edge to it that lingered for a long time and spoilt the delicacy of the flowers. I could detect some water lily and (I think) the iris, but no trace of jasmine, rose or orange. Usually rose is the first note I pick up on. Very unremarkable scent, and very short-lived too - less than two hours on me.

Very unpleasant scent on me. I know this is a hated phrase in fragrance reviews, but this really does have an edge of what I can only describe as 'bug spray' on my skin. It seems like there is something nice underneath that chemical-y chord, but my nose just can't fully get to it. Not for me.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I am a fan. I understand the people that think it's nothing special but I love it because it's a floral I can actually tolerate and I love the very very subtle vanilla in it. Its a nice clean combination. If I'm feeling extra saucy, I layer it with Etro Heliotrope. Now, thats a beautiful scent and it's subtle and not overpowering. I want people to think I just smeel this good naturally. It's not the most beautiful unique fragrance but it suits me ok and I like it better than average so thats why i gave it a 4.

This scent is a mystery to me, because it has none of the aquatic tones to it that other reviewers have noted. I do have a strong impression of jasmine in this, but it is warm and sweet, not green and cloying. This may be an effect of the ylang-ylang, but as I cannot accurately isolate that note, I am not sure if this is what it is or not. I can sense a warmth at the bottom of this, maybe vanilla or amber. Yes, it reminds me a bit of the "feel" of Chantecaille Frangipane.

This is a spicy floral. Very pleasant and inoffensive , but a bit common?.
On opening it has a clean watery floral note that is so familiar it is uncanny. Then segues into a peppery warmth and coolness at the same time .
Light waterlily smell and clean enough to wear in summer , feminine without being girly and silly , but not ground-breaking either.
Soap and pepper seems a good combination to me , but it is so reminiscent of the feeling of Pleasures original ( with the same peppery warmth and spice , which I liked) or Miracle original (ditto)or even Sephora Hibiscus without the heavy powder that it doesn’t distinguish itself enough to warrant a purchase. Or so I think , for the price asked…

okay after reading all the reviews, i thought i'd give this one a chance. sprayed my quickly disappearing staple on one wrist, and a sample of vicolo fiore on the other wrist. HATED this! honestly, i'm shocked. it really did smell good in the tester. however when mixed with my own body chemistry, there's just something in it that makes me sneeze... not sure what specific scent or "note" but it's definitely making my nose tingle. i have to wash that wrist clean now. glad i didn't buy it.

This is a beautiful, clean, white scent to me that I can wear in Singapore without people gagging in the elevators. It's a favourite.
