From the moment I sprayed it onto my wrist, I adored this fragrance. I love the way it comes out on my skin...
It reminds me of holidays, warm summer beach vacations in Europe, having a nice big dinner with all your family and friends, going picknicking... It smells like summer to me. This is really my favorite perfume of the moment. It reminds me alot of Estee Lauder Bronze Godess, I used to adore that one, but after I smelled Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Fico di Amalfi, I instantly liked Acqua di Parma way more. It suits me better too.
I think it's totally worth the price, and I love the packaging too. I'll keep buying this perfume over and over again each time I finish a bottle. I hope they'll never stop making this one because it truly is my holy grail.

Fresh lemon-grapefruit-fig mash up, like great cologne with a (figgy) twist. I'm not a food-gourmand fragrance fan per se, but like this. The fruit notes are there, but not in a clairol-shampoo way - the zest, not lemonade, and the smell of the skin of fresh fig.
HATE the packaging. What is with the cheapo plastic cap? Pretty pricey too. Staying power was actually pretty good for me.

Great, great summer fragrance! Its clean and fresh, but it has some body to it without being musky in the least! Its got some of the best cedar I've smelled, along with citrus and bergamot. Blended like a dream; it just smells GOOD! Truly unisex, doesn't feel like it belongs on any particular gender. Great!

This puts me in the mood of booking a holiday. Lovely fresh and energising fragrance. A shame about the last power though.

I think that I am in the minority here, because I think this scent is absolutely stunning. At first the fragrance opens up as a lively citrus summertime scent, and soon develops into a lovely clean green elegant fragrance. I am not a huge fan of citrus, and love how the scent evolves into a fig and cedar clean scent. The major disappointment with this perfume is the fact that it only comes as an eau de toilette, so it doesn't have the lasting power, but it is nevertheless breathtaking and intoxicating!

Love this! One of my top 5 fragrances. Fico di Amalfi opens up subtly with citrus notes (mandarin, bergamot, lemon, orange, grapefruit), then mellows down to a fresh and not overly sweet fig fragrance (middle notes are fig, pink pepper and jasmine). I can't really smell any jasmine - just the fig, but it still manages to smell fresh. As it continues to mellow down to the base notes (fig nectar, musk, cedar), it just gets fresher smelling. Unfortunately some of the fig is lost after a few hours of wear, but you do get an amazing 'just out of the shower' freshness - I think this is likely due to the cedar. I find that anything that has a woody basenote will always retain some sort of fresh smell, even after the majority of the fragrance has faded away.
The only downside of this fragrance is that I find it only lasts a short number of hours, although it still has a lasting power that is superior to other high-end fragrances I have tried. Having said that, I find that one full spritz on my wrists, and a small spritz on my neck is sufficient, as initially it can be too overpowering & you don't get the true fig fragrance coming through if you overdo it initially.
Overall, a gorgeous fig fragrance that manages to maintain an amazing freshness throughout the entire wear. Love it!

Fico di Amalfi is a light clean fig with some citrus - very wearable,
classy. Gently sensual. My favorite of the Acqua di Parma line so far.

At first spray I was in love. After the dry down I fell out of love. It completely changed and some other note took over... perhaps the fig. The citrus note was lost.

I don't like the way this smells on me. Imo it doesn't work with my body chemistry, yet when other ppl smell it on me they say it does. Idk but the scent lasts a while for those who like it (Lasts all day on me). I won't be repurchasing.

You don't know how good this smells until you smell it on somebody else. Don't be put off by the initial spritz. Once it sinks in, you will smell truly irresistible!
