Bubblegum and incense! Rather a pretty combination of fruity pink pepper tempered with mild citrus and based in a soft wood incense--raw incense not burned yet. Youthful but not girlish. I like it alot. It's what I'd hoped Etat's bubblegum encens would be but is far far better.

Unfortunately it seems like every perfume my mother-in-law introduces to me gets discontinued :( its so annoying because I always end up falling in love with them and then can never buy them! This one is gorgeous, very elegant and classy. Very distinctive with a good staying power, it's a shame it's not available most places apart from online :(

At first it wasn't very impressive, but its definetly a grower. A really beautiful spring into summer fragrance with a city chic edge. Also perfect for the beach or summer vacation.

Very odd fragrance. Top notes are pure Angel Klone and then suddenly it turns into aftershave. I have never worn a fragrance with such a split personality before. I don't dislike it particularly but nor am I crazy about it. I quite like the drydown which is just as well because it gets there and stays there for a while. Then pffft! gone. Would not purchase again but interesting if slightly weird work.

I got this on sale at a local pharmacy so it was a very good price €40 for 90ml EDP. I was suckered because I am a huge fan of both the original Fendi and Asja and assumed that I would love this too. I'm afraid I didn't but I can appreciate the appeal this perfume has for many other women. It smells strongly of orange blossom and soap to me. I was hoping to get a blast of incense and patchouli (two of my favourite notes) but they were indiscernible among the strong strong strong flowers. I have to give it praise for it's lasting power in this era of fleeting fruity florals and also for it's uncompromising structure. It is discontinued, so if you like it you better stock up if you see it.

I received the EDT sample of this, which has disappointing staying power. I can definitely pick up the jasmine and pink pepper notes in this with a touch of something sweet, which aren't bad, but they don't stick around. On me, this definitely settles into a clean, green smell. I can understand where some get the 'soap' comparison. I wouldn't purchase the full size in the EDT version, but I'd love to try the EDP.

These reviews just amuse me. Couldn't someone come up with anything better than it smells like a hotel room or an old rich lady with a personal shopper? LOL What are you people smelling? Because my perfume does not smell like that. Guess your chemistry was just bad with it, but those comments are rude. If you hate it that much, then why write a review at all? The best comparison is to Givenchy Ange Ou Demon. I smell a similar vagueness from Angel, but only immediately at first spray and the middle is like Navy by Dana..?. Our noses try to detect the notes, and sort them out. So that's what I smelled today. I like it and I asked my mother what she thought. She loved it. This is not Palazzo Las Vegas baby, it's Palazzo "palace" in Italian.

Palazzo has not yet convinced me...I received this as a gift and I find it a bit overpowering still its a very different, interesting scent, hard to describe...the first whif not so much, after a few hours though...hm. I might pass this on to my mom...

GAG!!!!!!!!! I had to remove the ad from my magazine... it just smelled like soap and fabric softener... who wants to smell like that?? Seriously, I could have put it in with my load of laundry... can't believe such a high end desinger could make something that bad...

At first, I did NOT like this scent when I tested it. First impressions with fragrances can be that way many a times, especially for me. The reason being for this instance is that on the first try, I thought it overly floral--white floral, which can be tricky to my nose and skin chemistry.
What changed my mind was when I received a very generous sample of the bath gel at my local Neimans. For the heck of it, I was in a "floral" mood (usually I'm for the deep and woody and vanillic orientals most of the time) so I decided to give it a try in the shower. Same thing happened. Something in it made me a bit uhm...uncomfortable. I couldn't understand what or why about it. I proceeded to get dressed, and I would intermittently go in and out of the bathroom to make myself presentable for the day, and suddenly the magic of Palazzo came over me. The smell of my bathroom was of a clean, soapy floral with undertones of something like that of warm skin, ripe and a bit animalic. So it dawned on me. That was what was making me uncomfortable! It was like showering with a stranger! I researched the notes of Palazzo online, it didn't list some kind of musk that I recognize in the mix, and the fragrance pyramid didn't show it either but it was described as a musky floral. I must say I haven't smelled patchouli like this, if it was patchouli to blame.
I guess it must be the indoles evoked in the white florals that mixed with the patchouli. I was uncomfortable because it smelled almost like someone else, an olfactory identity I wasn't familiar with, if this makes any sense at all. It was another person that I couldn't identify within me readily, but most assuredly it did call forth this personality within me, this alter-ego.
Palazzo smells of a modern chypre, bright, warm, floral, woody, and animalic all at the same time. An ambery facet warms like a candle lit glow for a bit, but releases itself to reveal a bright and romantic nature, veiled over a hidden sexiness. I've smelled a lot of perfumes, and Palazzo definitely evokes a bit of that old world style, sophisticated, confident, "upper-crust" and seems to have that French style of perfumery. I've been lately searching scents that smelled classic, scents with an identity. This definitely fits the bill! No, it does not smell like Angel, and while Ange ou Demon has that citric floral quality, it is way too ambery, smoky and heavy at the base to compare to. I do love the two BTW. I'd say I'd compare it more to the revived Pucci Vivara, which I definitely, hands down DO NOT LIKE!
This definitely doesn't smell young and hip. You have to possess a personality to fit this type of scent, namely the chypre genre. Fun-young-and-hip lovers should walk on over to the Harajuku Lovers section if you care for something more playful.
The perfume dries down to light floral notes with a gentle, sweet woody base that's whisper soft. Great for those who do not like that feeling of heavy notes that cling at the end of the day that can make you feel a bit too "unclean".
Funny thing, something told me to go directly to the Fendi boutique to purchase this. I'm glad I did because the woman there told me that the fragrances were on "sale". SALE???? She pointed to a 50 ml bottle normally for $68, and then she pointed over to their luxe gift set for the same price! 90 ml bottle, and travel sizes of shower gel and lotion. SCORE!!! They were offered in this elegant black tabletop vanity case that'll definitely house pretty things that need to be tucked away in something beautiful. That's why I gave the price 3 lippies instead of 4 for regular designer perfumes.
Despite how perfumes move me differently, I hope that I can hold a long-term relationship with this one. I have to admit, the fragrance world today is all too "modern", safe, and possess personalities similar to scents offered in a bottle of shampoo, hence the words boring and unimaginative. Which leads me to think, why wear perfume at all? To me, perfume should let people know who you are, or would like to let them believe who you are, or in my case, how you are feeling in that particular moment. Perfume shouldn't be about social acceptance, but an extension of your persona, much like the way you wear your clothes. For me, it's not the same every day, so I wear a different scent every day, and Palazzo certainly complement a personality I would like to project when I feel like it.
Just when I'm supposed to be finished with this long-winded review, a last note. DON'T BUY THE EAU DE TOILETTE. Though it may be sweeter and gentler, it is just too safe--no personality at all! Get the EdP...LIVE DANGEROUSLY!

Very elegant, yet powdery and soft, the sort of thing you could wear every day. It reminds me a bit of one of my all-time favorite fragrances Shalimar Light.

I was generously given 4 samples of this when I bought a scarf at Fendi and I have been looking for a perfume for a while now. Everytime I am at a perfume store I try to smell a few perfumes to find my "signature" scent, but in the end I just get a headache and none of them really makes me go "wow". This scent on the other hand is really me! I love it because it smells like no other and it's different in a exciting way.It makes me feel very confident and I feel as I just want people to get close and smell me! Haha. It stays with you in a good way and not in that horrible way as when someone with a too sweet perfume walks by. I keep smelling myself through the day because it smells so good and interesting. I think it also appeals to men as it is not that sweet scent but a more complex one. I will definitley buy when my samples are out.

It has been a long time that I smelled a fragrance that was original and memorable at the same time. I was not in the market for a perfume since I have so many, but I was given a few samples at Sephora and one of them at home. When I initially sprayed this, I was taken aback because the scent was so uncommercial. It's unique quality reminds me a bit of Clinique's Aromatics Elixir. I could not make a heads or tails of the fragrance. One the card, it was described as a woody, floral fragrance featuring yellow tangerine, orange blossome and sandalwood. I also note rose and patchouli, as well. It is a bold perfume but it is distinctive and one that you will enjoy noticing on yourself throughout the day. I would say that this is a wonderful fall/winter scent. Well now I have to get me this!!!

I don't know what it is about this fragrance, but it makes me feel sexy and powerful! Bold words I know, but it's true. I only wear it when I'm wearing a killer power suit to work and the fragrance just commands attention. If you're ever feeling not so confident about yourself, spray this stuff on! You will lift your head up high, kicking booty, and taking names!

Quite a lovely scent, nothing like the original Fendi which smells ghastly. I would not have even tried this if the saleslady didnt ambush me with a bottle and sample card. Just to be polite I allowed her to demonstrate the product to me, and what a pleasant surprise it was. However, I had just bought a bottle of Ange ou Demon EDP and Fendi Palazzo smells like a lighter version! The similarity is quite uncanny. It also reminds me a little of Lolita Lempicka, that sweetish licorice-type note coming through. It has a little more crispness than the former two however. If I hadn't bought Ange ou Demon, I would definitely have bought Palazzo. I still might as a lighter alternative to Ange ou Demon. I don't think it smells anything like Angel, and I consider myself a scent-hound when picking up similar scents.

Just stopped into a Fendi store to check out the purses and received a trial of the Palazzo edp. I was shocked, as Fendi fragrances are not usually my thing. Lovely. Warm ambery, long lasting, elegant but can be worn during the day. Someone reviewed here and said it was like Angel. NO SIMILARITY AT ALL TO ME. Angel is wonderful but must be worn with caution as you can offend depending where you are. This is nothing short of a perfect anytime sophisticated last thing you throw on before you leave for the day. A well done very balanced scent. Ordered the large size (3.0) edp from Neimans today and cannot wait to get it.
I just read the other reviews of this fragrance and am blown away at the negative response to it. Isn't it interesting what different noses smell? I am wearing it now as I was reading and kept smelling my wrist. To me nothing short of lovely.

Smells like soap or fabric softener. But high-quality soap or fabric softener. What other descriptions have been used in the reviews here...? Mature woman? Yes. Hotel room? Uh-huh. It's all of those.
The notes mentioned... not sure if I really smell any of those. I'm really used to wearing fragrances with heavy notes (especially bottom notes), and this one seems to lack one.
This perfume, in my opinion, is not that great. At the same time, something draws me to it. Fracas was like this at first (also lacking bottom notes)... but Fracas is one of my favourites (and much better than this one).
Don't know. I'm on the fence with this one, but leaning toward no. It's too...soapy for my taste. I do have the shower gel, as well. Don't mind that one as much, because it IS soap :-)

Palazzo has a warm ambery scent and is a very typical Fendi fragrance to me. I could faintly smell the orange blossom but mostly it seemed like a very well blended amber to me.
Palazzo seems like it was made for an Italian woman, aged 55-65, who is permanently tanned and wears lush fox fur coats.
Very long lasting, by the way.

Does the world need another Angel? I don't think so...Palazzo and Angel share notes of bergamot, mandarin, and patchouli, all of which can be lovely. However, the two scents have a distinctive similarity and IMO a screeching tenacity that clobbers your sense of smell into desperate submission. The bottle's lovely, though.

I really love this scent. I usually don't consider Fendi my style, but this scent mixes with my body chemistry very well. I recommend not spraying it on your wrists, but on the backs of your knees, so as your body heats up, the scent rises. And don't spray, use a piece of cotton ball to splash it on your knees. The smell can be overwhelming if you spray it directly onto your skin, which, I think, is why the scent can be a turn off for some people. But a subtly swiping is all you need. It lasts all day, even after your nose gets used to the scent, you won't need to spritz it on again for the entire day. Also, don't use any scented lotions or it will not mix well.
