I have a few vintage Pucci items but I never wear them. They don’t really fit the Pacific Northwest very well, but hey one day I’m retiring to Mexico! I really tried to love the new Pucci Vivara but I don’t love it. I like it but I don’t think I’ll ever purchase it. I was intrigued by these three new fragrances. I thought that out of three there would surely be one that would make me part with $59. Nope.
The first is Acqua, the blue one. It is much too aquatic for my tastes. I don’t do those type of fragrances. They burn my nose and I find them boring. This isn’t a horrible fragrance, it just doesn’t go with my tastes. I kind of knew this would be my least fragrance because of its reason of being, acquatic. It is too synthetic and not very “salty” like it claims. But, if you like Davidoff Cool Water, or Estee Lauder Beyond Paradise then you’ll probably dig this.
The second is Sole, the yellow one. It is inspired by the sun. Actually I thought I would really dislike this one, but it isn’t too bad. It is a bit bitter from the tomato leaf and tangerine notes. But, it is made “warm” by jasmine, patchouli, and musk. But, it isn’t too warm and it definitely a summer fragrance and not a fall one.
The third is Sabbia, the coral one. It is actually my favorite of the three. This is a huge surprise. Just proves to smell things before making a judgment. It is inspired by sandy shores. I thought I would dislike it because of all the citrus notes listed like tangerine, lemon, and even bergamot. However, this isn’t what makes this fragrance. It is the cool and crisp iris. It is a pretty blend that seems very interesting even with its popular notes like bergamot, iris, and vetiver. It smells both warm and cool. It is that contrast that sand has. Sand can be so hot it hurts or so cool that it hurts.
Each bottle is 1.7 ounces and is an EDT. I thought that they were limited edition but I don’t think they are. Usually when a company offers lots of different items like this in one collection they are limited but I don’t know.
