What Does Yuzu Smell Like

Yuzu by Acqua di Parma opens with a vibrant citrus drama, artfully weaving the tart, almost garland-like scent of Yuzu with the sweet, full-bodied aroma of Calabrian bergamot. The Sichuan pepper introduces an exciting edge, infusing the citrus blend with a slightly warm, slightly spicy kick that is both intriguing and soothing.

As the perfume settles, the heart reveals a charming medley of floral notes. Jasmine and mimosa intertwine to create an intimate, tender scent that is both clean and slightly sweet. The leafy, crisp scent of violet leaf lends an earthy greenness to the arrangement, beautifully balanced by the aquatic grace of lotus.

The base is an enticing blend of rich, deep notes. Musk provides a warm, animalistic aroma that is pure, soft, and subtly sensual. Liquorice adds an interesting twist - a sweet yet slightly bitter nuance that is both comforting and slightly mysterious. The classic, creamy sweetness of sandalwood rounds off the composition, lending it a smooth, velvety depth that lingers gently on the skin.

Overall, Yuzu by Acqua di Parma is a vibrant, floral-citrus scent woven with intriguing spicy, sweet, and woody notes that give it a full-bodied, layered complexity.

Review of Yuzu

Acqua di Parma's Yuzu perfume, released in 2019, is a dynamic, unisex fragrance that seems to be particularly enjoyed by women. Not your run-of-the-mill scent, it shines brightest in the warmth of spring and summer months, captivating with its citrus character, and fresh undertones. Yuzu's standout feature, as the name suggests, is the prominent yuzu note which lends a tart, yet refreshing vibe to the fragrance.

The perfume opens with a lively burst of citrus, giving way to a softer, more intimate heart of floral and green notes. The scent then rounds off with a subtle, creamy and woody base, which some may find does not last as long as they would like, a minor downside that could be improved. However, the sillage is moderate, allowing the perfume to leave a gentle trail without overpowering those around you.

Yuzu's laid-back nature makes it an excellent choice for leisure activities and daily wear. It’s also not out of place in a business setting, where its fresh aura can make you feel invigorated and ready to take on the day. However, its subtle nature might not stand out in more extravagant events such as night-outs or formal evening occasions.

As for value, Yuzu is not cheap, but neither exorbitantly priced. The real question lies in the user’s personal preference - if you enjoy a citrusy, fresh fragrance that doesn't shout for attention, Yuzu might be worth the investment. However, for those seeking something long-lasting or more daring, this might not hit all the right notes.
