What Does Oltremare Smell Like

Oltremare by Bois 1920 delivers a crisp and fresh scent, largely guided by a strong citrus influence. The initial hit is a zesty blend of bitter orange, green lemon, Italian bergamot, and Sicilian lemon, with a dash of exotic Brazilian orange. This first impression is invigorating and lively, effectively capturing the feel of a sunlit Mediterranean garden.

Gradually, the perfume unfolds into its heart notes, revealing an interesting blend of red tea and rhubarb. These notes infuse the scent with a slightly tart aroma that complements the initial citrus burst. Hyacinth adds a subtle floral touch, while juniper berry and Maté bring a slightly green, herbaceous nuance. The presence of violet leaf, Egyptian geranium and Mugane™ adds to the complexity of the scent, giving it an airy, fresh from the garden aroma.

As the perfume settles, the base notes start to reveal themselves. Ambergris, Orcanox, and white musk bring a subtly earthy, almost marine-like undertone, while Indian sandalwood and Indonesian patchouli add a touch of warmth and depth. This combination grounds the scent, contrasting with the bright and lively top and middle notes. Overall, Oltremare presents a vivid and stimulating olfactory experience, reminiscent of a seaside Italian orchard on a sunny day. It is a fragrance that feels clean, lively, and unmistakably fresh.

Review of Oltremare

Oltremare by Bois 1920, released in 2011, is a man's perfume which embodies a vibrant yet subtle blend of fresh and citrusy notes. It seems to be a perfect fit for those who enjoy a bit of tanginess, with an undercurrent of fruity sweetness, tempered by a gentle floral hint. The perfume leans toward the aquatic side, reminding one of breezy seaside days, enhanced with a touch of spicy and green elements for an earthy undertone. Its woody base note provides a solid foundation, grounding the overall profile.

Optimal for warmer seasons, the scent evokes the relaxed feel of summer and the blooming freshness of spring. Its moderate longevity and sillage make it a great choice for daily wear or a casual day out. Yet, the perfume holds its own in a business setting, offering a solid but not overpowering impression. A hint of sportiness also makes it suitable for evening events or a fun night out. Overall, Oltremare by Bois 1920 is a worthy addition to a man's fragrance collection.
