Yuzu is a unisex citrus aromatic fragrance that launched in 2019. It is a sparkling and energizing fragrance that combines the bittersweet notes of yuzu with vibrant and luminous citrus notes. Considered as the rarest fruit of Japan, the yuzu fruit is now the newest of Acqua di Parma's "frutti d'oro". The fragrance brings together yuzu's bittersweet aroma with their signature citrus notes. With top notes of yuzu, Calabrian bergamot and Sichuan pepper; middle notes of lotus, mimosa, violet leaf and jasmine; and base notes of musk, licorice and sandalwood. Yuzu is an eau de parfum, edp.
Fragrantica: I love the smell of this one! It is sweet, has a nice balance in between the yuzu and bergamot, with notes of lotus. The smell lasts for a few hours, though not as much as I’d like to. The sillage is mild, but I enjoy wearing it as a more intimate fragrance. It’s also a perfect unisex scent, but I do think this is slightly overpriced. I wanna give it a perfect rating but the longevity and sillage are too bad, so I'm giving it a 8/10.
Fragrantica: Yuzu and bergamot are great and relative long lasting on a fresh frag. Very nice “aquatic” acords. You can identify some vibe of sea and salt also. Reminds me when you are getting out of sea and you have the nice smelling sun cream on your skin and any dried down perfume mixed with sea water on your skin - this is something new for me. I was extremely surprised on how many compliments I got with this one. Untypical long lasting (5-6 hours) for Acqua di Parma :) Great projection also.
Sephora: I’ve always been a fan of everything Japanese yuzu, from smells to flavors, so I was eager to find out how Acqua di Parma would interpret the unique citrus scent. And I’ll start by saying that it turned out to be just brilliant. Upon spritzing, the immediate top notes are crisp with a hint of well-balanced bitterness. After a couple of minutes, the notes of bergamot and Sichuan pepper settle in and blend seamlessly with the refreshing citrus aroma, toning down the fruits’ acidity to bring out some mellow middle notes of lotus, mimosa, violet leaves, and jasmine. Finally, the soft, rich woody scents kick in as the unmistakable note of yuzu continues to bring the warm scents to life. My overall impression of this perfume is sparkling yet sophisticated, and it’s so much more than being just light and fruity like how I would expect a citrus scent to be. It’ll certainly be suitable for the warm days ahead but is also full-bodied and refined for cooler seasons.
