Acqua e Zucchero Fragrance Reviews

Fragboy702
Fragboy702

Acqua E zuchero is not a complicated fragrance, but what it does it does it to perfection. It opens fruity bit in a candy way, somewhat cotton candy vibe, like mixing the pink and purple and red ones together and you would get a similar vice to the opening. the opening also has a very nice orange blossom flower vibe in it that doesn't allow it to become overly sweet, it also gives it a fresh vibe, but not aquatic fresh, although acqua means water, there's nothing clear or cause about this fragrance. there's not much change , but to candidness does town down a bit and the vanilla starts to shine while the candy vibe sits more in the back. As you get more into the dry down the vanilla gets more creamy and almost caramel like. If you have ever smelled xerjoff lira, then it reminds me a bit of that caramel/vanilla combo that lira provides. Performance is great with this it will definitely not let you down in that department. Projection is beast in the first couple hours, then after about 4 hours you get about 1 ft projection, but you will definitely leave a trail of behind you, and someone walking behind you will for sure get whiffs of you.

Pink Sugar, minus the annoying fizziness of licorice+fig leaf.

And this smells closer to brown sugar than to cotton candy. A very concentrated and strong smell of brown sugar, amplified by orange blossom.

It is similar to pink sugar, but it's another cake here, there are enough significant diffrences to say that Acqua e Zucchero is better.

This is very similar to Al rehab soft on my skin and I'm trying to find significant differences but I can't. Yes the quality is better but to be honest spending over £100 versus £2 to £4 on the oil or spray gets me compliments, plus smells ridiculously the same that I just couldn't justify purchasing Zucchero.

Concentrated "sugar water" sweetness appropriate for a cool spring night out or fall/winter evening. A little bit goes a long way.

I like most Profumum fragrances I try. This is no exception, but it has a strong resemblance to Pink Sugar! Very sweet and very cotton candy, I pick up no orange blossom what so ever in the composition. Longevity is much better than Pink Sugar and 100ml will last forever.

I wore this one to the Christmas party on Friday... compliments through the roof left and right... its a simple but powerful and seductive scent!

Projection and longevity are beastly on this one so be easy on the trigger or u will gas some folks out... I did 3 sprays one on each side of the neck and 1 on the back of it and it was still going strong after 6 hours in a club...

This is not your office, work everyday type of scent... but for the right occasion... going out, clubbing type of scenario this is great.

" حارقة روما "

أكوا إيزوكيرو او بمعنى اخر الماء والسكر ، من انتاج دار برفوموم روما دار نيشية إيطالية حديثة تأسست في العام 1996 م ، أكثر مايميزهم هو نقاء وجودة الزيوت العطرية والفخامة والدقة في تقديم العطور.
جربت عينيتين من هذه الدار هما عطري اكوا إيزوكيرو ، وعطر اخر هو كونفيتو.نتحدث اليوم باختصار عن عطر اكوا إيزوكيرو وهو شبيه جدا بعطر أكولينا بينك شوقار النسائي ماعدا بالطبع فارق الجودة الواضح لصالح عطر روما

أفتتاحية عطر اكوا ايزيكيرو تظهر فيها بوضوح نوتة زهرة البرتقال الصابونية وللامانة وجدتها صناعية بحتة ولم ارى فيها لمسة ابداعية مختلطة مع الكشمش الأسود وثمار العليق ولمسات من فانيليا الطعام ، الخلاصة وكل مانتج عن هذا المزيج الهلامي هو رائحة معسل التفاح.لم اجد الكثير من الحرفة والابداع المنشود في هذا العطر وارى انه لايصلح لا رجالي ولا نسائي شيء غريب فعلا من هذه الدار وغير متوقع.

كبديل اقتصادى ارشح عطر اكولينا بينك شوقار النسائي الذي اراه يحتاج الى جو يكثر فيه هطول الجليد واستخدامه ايضا يسبب الصداع ( اروما كيمكال).

Love it, it's very spicy sweet. Tangy berry sweetness.. With a kind of burned sense to it. A very warm sophisticated scent. Lasts all day.

Niche 'Pink Sugar'? Yes, it definitely is, minus the unpleasant burnt notes!

Acqua e Zucchero is a big-time guilty pleasure of mine. This juice is liquefied berry-flavored cotton candy, a wonderfully well-done, quality gourmand! While this fragrance is toothe-achingly sweet (As seems to be the trend from Profumum Roma, in my opinion), it somehow still retains its depth & veers away from being too cloying. Velvety, sugared perfection.

The projection & wear time on this are stellar! I worked a 10 hour shift, and I'm pretty sure every third client I worked with complimented me on how delicious I smelled, even after I thought the scent had gone!

If your collection is lacking something fun and sweet, and you've got the funds to treat yourself with - definitely give Acqua e Zucchero a try!

The vibe: Carefree, flirty, uplifting.

This one sure fooled me, thankfully all the hype only cost me an $8 sample rather than the $300+ bottles online!

This scent is awful, a terrible disappointment. In no way is an intoxicating accord of sweet berry compote presented.

Zucchero starts off, weird.

First I get the orange (blossom). If anything, I find it totally generic, unfocused and even a bit greeny-pungent!

It's pretty similar to 1million, which was a real shock in itself - this was meant to be an instant hit of sweet, cream fruity blossoms all clear and intoxicating from the first spray. Pinksugar higher echelon version or something.

But it wasn't - it was simply 1million.

Then almost immediately, it's joined by a really well-done Skittles vibe.

This I liked, along with the sweetness that seems like a true watery-syrup but the orange-designer vibe never goes away and ruins the whole intention of getting out the clear, focused fruity sweetness.

It tries very very hard to be nice but just trips into a cloying orange and in the end, extremely disappointing. Sigh.

Scent: 4/10.
Quality: 8/10.

I wonder what is Profumum's criteria when labeling a perfume as unisex or just female. In my opinion, AeZ is very similar to Vanitas which is labeled as for female. Now I know that perfumes have really no gender yadda yada but I'm just curious. Having said that, I did try a sample of AeZ, like it a lot although I wouldn't wear it everyday so I'd probably go for a decant. The trick for guys in order to use such sweet scented perfumes is to have an IDGAF attitude when using it. Wear it when going out solo, like you don't care. Like when you wake up and go out to buy bread or go for a stroll.

Very sweet haute couture version of Pink Sugar scent. You can smell the difference in quality, this is more delicate and longer lasting cotton candy (as most are in the line). It is literally translated to Sugar Water and that is what you get here : sweet, feminine flirty high quality orange flower, berries and vanilla candy scent.

To me it stayed very linaer throughout with the skittles milkshake scent. (Open a bag of skittles and you will get the general idea). Though i found the smell pleasant i found it more suited to being a room fragrance opposed to an aftershave. But as it is a aftershave i feel i would prefer to smell it on someone else who i would be around for the day and then ne able to distance myself from it when needed. 1-2 sprays is all that is needed with this to make it suitable and not kill everyone around you. Projection and longevity are both superb but like i say better suted to smell on another than yourself.

Also as a final though it think it would be good to layer with something just to give a bit of depth, maybe try with a spray of oud wood 1st just to give it a bit extra to draw away from all the fruit.

Sugar overload! Sticky, tangy lemon and berry flavoured candy, the kind that stains your tongue every colour of the rainbow.

Be careful with the nozzle, if you over-sprayed this then I'd predict you would fast become the most hated person in the room.

Similar to this is "La Cautiva" by Fueguia 1833, except I find the latter to be less sugary; a more green and natural smelling blackcurrant and vanilla.

This has a stronger, sharper citrus note than Profumum's Dulcis in Fundo...I get MOSTLY citrus (but sweet citrus, mixed with some light berry notes) Reminds me of lemon candy.
Dulcis in Fundo is straight citrus & vanilla, more vanilla, and sort of powdery?, less candyish than Profumum'a Acqua e Zucchero, but pretty similar. Probably don't need both of them.
vs
Farmacia SS. Annunziata: Vaniglia del Madagascar is vanilla, lemon/citrus, but also has a base of amber+sweet floral)
vs
Serendipity 3 Serendipitous: Is orange and (not lemon or a less specific citrus note) vanilla, but also has a coconut note.

Although I like sweet scents admittedly I dont eat a lot of them. So im not sure exactly what I would compare this to.

Perhaps something like a somewhat fresh/clean smelling berry hand lotion, mixed with some pixy sticks candy, and some vanilla lingering in the background.

I honestly got a lot of the orange blossom, or at least some sort of fresh flowery neroli or maybe even bergamote sorta note in this myself. That did give it a surprising clean sorta vibe.

Whatever the case it was indeed very sweet, and girly to me. Not to much to wear as a man myself. But I wasnt blown away by the smell myself so not sure if I would want to rock this all things considered. Especially for the price as well lol. Maybe if a GF loved it/got insane compliments or something I might get a decant, but I wasnt in love with the smell so~


For what its worth performance wise it did well but ultimately just ok for me.

Acqua e Zucchero is a very nice sweet fruits and vanilla gourmand. Complexity isn't the name of the game here. Rather, simplicity is all this fragrance needs. Profumum's fragrances are all very well formulated. The longevity of AeZ is great. Put this on in the morning and you may very well go to bed with it still on. Projection is likewise very nice. It contains the possibility for overuse, like any other fragrance, but particularly so because it's a sweet gourmand. And these have the tendency to be like a clingy, ditzy blonde girl, wearing a lot of lipstick and hairspray with very long fake nails, never really going away even though you tire of her after a short while.

Anyway, I wouldn't want to wear this every day, but it's still very nice. It does give an impression of cotton candy, as many have noticed. It's basically a sweet, vanilla and fruit gourmand. I don't find much development, but seeing as it smells good from the get-go that's not a problem. It's overpriced like other Profumum scents, however, it's still worth trying.

If the orange blossom of Elie Saab is the hot, white glare of a Mediterrenean high noon, then Aqua e Zucchero's is an epilepsy-inducing strobe light. Much too sharp and shrieky for me. (Which is just as well, since I'm not sure how much I love falling for bottles that cost a car payment -- and PR's Dulcis in Fundo already has me in that sort of predicament ;-)

When as a child I was coughing or had sore throat, my mother prepared a delicious homemade remedy - caramelized sugar. The colour it had was exactly like the colour of the fluid shown on the picture above, so I guess this suggestion is the reason why I was expecting Acqua e Zucchero to smell like caramelized (burnt) sugar.
Sadly, all I'm getting is sweet berries and some vanilla - too fruity for my liking and - may I say - too simple for this price.

Based on the reviews, I was expecting this to be a softer, more mature version of Pink Sugar (which I love smelling on other people, but on me the licorice note is sharp and too pronounced). As a lover of orange blossom, I was also hoping I would detect more of that note. Unfortunately, on my skin, Acqua e Zucchero smells EXACTLY like Pink Sugar and Delicious Cotton Candy...*sharp* from what I presume could be an unlisted licorice or anise note, and a bit *dusty* from the type of vanilla that was used. It doesn't soften, and no woody notes emerge on my skin like they do for other people wearing Acqua e Zucchero.

My personal opinion, based on my own skin chemistry, is that this is way too expensive for what it is, considering Pink Sugar is so widely available and much more affordable. Pink Sugar has much better sillage, too. It was worth a test, though.

This is the fancy girl's Pink Sugar, definitely. It's the same general fruity, sugary sweet with vanilla scent, like cotton candy but warm with hints of tart berry. It's less cloying and more grown up than Punk Sugar, has a more complicated and wonderful dry-down, and lasts forever. I got compliment after compliment while wearing this, from women and men alike. Everyone seemed to love it - friends kept coming to smell me and my man kept telling me how wonderful I smelled.

While yes, it's definitely an outrageous price for something that does smell an awful lot like the much cheaper Pink Sugar, if longevity and a quite a bit more class mean a lot to you, I say go for it. Or at least check out The Perfumed Court or Surrender to Chance to see if you can get a decant of it. It's a beautiful, sexy, comforting, sweet and warm scent, and well worth every penny.

I first tried this as a sample in a mixed set of vanilla. I was smitten immediately, I sent for a larger decant and then got 35ml on ebay . I finished the last of the sample today. It's quite zingy at first lots of fruit, this is not my favourite stage I feel it's kinda fizzy if that makes sense, tickles my nose it could verge on irritating but doesn't . So it's there all day I get wafts of sweet fruity vanilla coming over me which is actually lovely and I find this with all the profumums . So now 12 hours since I put it on I still get beautiful sweet fruity vanilla on my skin, just want to keep sniffing. The presence of the scent all day and delicious skin scent at the end is worth the nose tickling at the beginning.

Very berry and very sweet.
It smells like a candy, a chocolate berry but artificial.
Then it becomes strange, kind of medicinal smell.
The opening is playful, like a teens fragrance but then it all turns cloying, overly sweet and annoying.

Acqua e Zucchero is a potent gourmand. Oddly, the top notes seem to dominate: it has a fizzy, sharp, almost stinging effect on the nose. This undoubtedly comes from a burnt sugar note as well as some zesty citrus. It reminds me of sipping bubbly champagne while eating a piece of rich, caramel cake. To me, any hint of orange blossom is clouded by the effect of this sharp sweetness.

Others have compared this to Pink Sugar, and I have to agree. But, to be honest, I prefer Pink Sugar (perhaps this is a bit controversial). The top notes in Zucchero are a bit too shrieky and long lasting for my taste, whereas I feel that PS has richer, warmer base notes and a more sultry dry down.

If you are a gourmand lover, this is worth a sample, even if just to compare and contrast with your other foodie favorites. For me, It's yummy enough to be a "like" but not distinctive enough to be a "love."

Yep, I get Pink Sugar also. The drydown is a little less sugary, something a bit more woodsy in it and maybe a touch of cinnamon? But I can't get past that PS phase.

I decided to find and sample Pink Sugar to compare. Yes, the concept might be similar in prominent notes(vanilla, sugar, fruits), but the rendition is far different: A&Z smells natural and has greater depth and complexity- especially in the vanilla note where PS smells very linear. The raspberry note in PS to me smells synthetic- like a red #40-infused slush. A&Z also has an entirely-different base/drydown than PS. And then there is the difference in concentration... I would be able to tell immediately which was which! PS- though it is pleasant and has many fans which I don't mean to disrespect- does NOT compare.

l just tried it in a perfume shop today and got a sample. l was very intrigued by the smell. lt is very interesting, smells of red oranges and sweet. l kept on smelling the sample on my skin all evening and then suddenly it reminded me of Mugler's Angel which l used some years ago. The first impression is different but the base notes on my skin smell identical.

Similar (in a creepy way) to pink sugar (which I like, just, have been around town too much).

Prettier though, soft woodsy sweet, cute in a childish way, happy and joyful in a mature way. Just a bit too pricy?

Scenery: Cheesy beach kisses, long dresses, summer vacation, late mornings, marketplaces, a vespa.

Very similar to Pink Sugar, almost the same, but Acqua e Zucchero lacks the liquorice note, which is so prominent in Pink Sugar. Usually I do not mind the liquorice, but in Pink Sugar it bothers me - not too much, but Pink Sugar would do just fine (better) without it. Therefore, purely based on scent&notes, Acqua e Zucchero is better for this cotton candy and caramel-type scent, but if I take a look on the pricetag as well, Pink Sugar would be the winner, if I wanted to buy one of them (and there are already too many perfumes on my wishlist - not sure, if I ever want to fit Pink Sugar on that, but hey, never say never, my frineds said)

Wow! I think this has to be the best-done fragrance of this type! The orange blossom is just there on the edge to add an ethereal sophistication, and does anyone else smell just a hint of linden-blossom? Caramelized sugar, vanilla, and a touch of fruit (there's more than just raspberries)- all balanced equisitely. For me, this screams summer and fairs- what could be better?

Update: can't get this one out of my head! I know most of this frag's fans are women (I'm a guy), but I'm beginning not to care...

A more expensive Pink Sugar. Very very very adorable. Pink Sugar is one of my everlasting favourites, I have it always in my perfume collection even thoug I don´t use it a lot.
Acqua e Zucchero is the perfect scent for all sugar and cotton candy lovers and lasts for hours. But if you don´t want to spend 150 Euros for 100ml you should choose Pink Sugar. 120 Euro cheaper than this and 99% the same maybe not that elegant and hasn´t this genuine image. But: who cares? ;-)

Just tried my sample. I kept thinking, I have smelled this before, hum.....where....so familiar....then it hit me. My daughter is freakishly addicted to Pink Sugar. I will agree with others though, this is a more grown up fragrance, not the teenager locker room gym class spray after working out. I think I will have to get a FB of this. Yep I'm loving it. I used to love Pink Sugar until she took it over, and while it does smell good on her, this one is for mom :) I love this line.

I adore this wow as soon as I sprayed this I was in love.

Really well done, soft, warm cosy vanilla with a delicate sweet hint of wild berry fruits.

The sillage and longevity are great many gourmand scents don’t have much of either but this one is well worth a fb.

It is expensive but you do get a huge bottle and the perfume is divine. If you like the sweeter end of the perfume spectrum, go for it. There is nothing not to like.

I can make out the three main notes and feel they are nicely balanced. All in all it's a lovely sweet perfume to wear I'd give it 9 out of 10.

AeZ really does smell like burnt sugar, along with a fresh, sugar-cane like note. After a while there appears a fairly strong fruity-floral note along with the burnt sugar. There’s a good bit of sillage, and it lasts for 8-12 hours on skin, and is still present after a shower. Once the fruity-floral ensemble joins the sugar, things stay linear through the drydown.

This is a pleasant gourmand scent that, despite its name, isn’t cloyingly sweet. I especially like the burnt sugar note. I’ve tried several fragrances from Profumum and liked them all. This is not my favorite, but it’s still unique and worth a sniff if you like dessert-theme scents.

Over-th-top, maybe, but oh so very addictive! Lots of vanilla sweetness but also a top note of some tingling fresh stuff - and the top note lingers for a looooong time. Aqua e zucchero is really strong stuff one doesn't need much of it to be noticed. It IS very much similar to Pink Sugar, which is only a little bit 'softer' and OK maybe less elaborate on the tangerine top note. And on the wallet. Although Pink Sugar evaporates a bit faster.

COZY COZY COZY!!!! Move over Pink sugar, you are play-school compared to this beauty! So glad to have discovered this high-end Niche.
It opens with a cheerful orange blossom/spun sugar/vanilla, and it lifts your spirits immediately.
I am also pleasantly surprised at how "natural" it smells, my nose does not detect any nasty chemical/synthetics, (if there are any, which I doubt, then they are very well hidden!) The sillage is not too overpowering, especially given a few minutes to settle, by then, you are surrounded in a pillow of comforting vanilla marshmallow.....HEAVENLY!

This is a really sweet but great fragrance. It has a great staying power as well and is not making me nauseous or giving me a headache.
I usually am not that much into very sweet fragrances but this is an exception! It is also really expensive though, so I am looking for something else that smells alike. Pink sugar I heard is much simpler, so if anyone has other suggestions?
I love acqua di sale as well, which is very different, but also fantastic.

I love this perfume so much I'm positively giddy and giggly. While I smell the cotton candy reference, it's at most peripheral to the most perfect balance of orange blossom and vanilla that I've ever experienced. There's very definitely a carmelizing sugar smell but it's more like the way cotton candy smells when it's being spun. After about half an hour of development you detect a sharp acidity that must be the forest fruits (whatever they are). The sharpness is close to the skin but makes this an adult juice. Sweet for sure but sweet the way wonderful French champagne is. I LOVE THIS STUFF!

Just came back from rome...
And finally bought aqua e zucchero, with showergel and lotion.

IT IS FANTASTIC!!
I was affraid it would be to sweet, but is is not, and you smell the quality, and I do not understand that some revieuwers ( at others sites) that they compare it to aqualina.NO WAY!!

It is delicious creamy, and for me so far the only vanilla that is not getting boring 'only vanilla'
I also bought the new profumumscent, batito d'alba, gorgious, I keep it for summer.A more friendly, classy scent.

WOW! This is amazing! Totally ADDICTIVE! I love it so much, it is so comforting, sweet and luxurious. In my large collection of gourmand fragrances, this very well might be the most delicious and distinctive. Luckyscent has sent me a few samples of this over the years, and it took me a while to really "get" it. My initial dislike of Aqua e zucchero is that it smells quite like pink sugar, which I hate. It is different though, obviously of higher quality- soft and well blended cotton candy, vanilla and berries instead of pink sugars screamingly synthetic straight forward sticky sweet cotton candy. The vanilla in this smells almost identical to the one used in the same lines Vanitas- another fume I love (which is for some reason not on this site).
Maybe PS just didnt work on my chemistry, but Aqua e zucchero smells great on me. SS chia also has a similar smell, but once again, it does not smell good on me, but better than PS. I would suggest this to people who like pink sugar but want something a little more adult and frankly, worlds prettier. You obviously do not have to like PS to enjoy this one, but if you arent up for a dead on berry cotton candy scent that lasts for many hours, pass on this one. My roommate said when he smells this he can practically see someone twirling the stick for the fresh, gourmet berry cotton candy- and hes right! He made a comment about ps being watered down, and smelling more like old, wrapped expired cotton candy and once again I agree with his nose, although I pick up a ton of anise as well in PS whereas its totally absent in this. I love to wear this perfume, it makes me happy every time I wear it and my roommate and other guys love it on me, it really brings joy to those around you if they like sweet scents. Sometimes I spray my sheets, clothes and GLOVES! I sprayed this on my cashmere gloves and even when I smoke a cig with them on, theres always that sweet goodness that is Aqua e Zucchero. The lasting power of this is amazing on cloth, and pretty good on skin, too.

I have tried mixing it with other fumes as well with great results. I love it with tihota, jalaines vanilla and Vantitas, Blue Sugar, Miss dior cherie, Coco Mademoiselle but my favorite combination is Elixir Charnel Gourmand Coquin by Guerlain and this. Its like a gourmet candy store on my skin and I cant get enough of it! It is a great scent to layer!

This is not for people who do not like sweet, foody or gourmand scents.

It seems every site has the liquid in this different colors, but now that I have gotten mine I can tell you it is light yellow juice (similar color to vanitas, but less pigmented.) The bottle is expensive, but also very large at 100ml.

I would suggest sampling pink sugar, ss chia and Aqua e Zucchero if you love cotton candy scents. Aqua e Zucchero is flat out delicious and it changed my mind forever on cotton candy fragrances- I used to hate them, but Aqua e Zucchero is so perfect with high quality vanilla and berries mixed with some sort of expensive candyfloss. BTW the body products by pink sugar like the whipped moisturizer smell more like this and less like my unflattering pink sugar description and layer well with this scent :)

Men go bonkers for this scent more than anything else I have tried. I have 2 half empty bottles, one in my living room and one next to my bed and I know I will never be without this fragrance, I think if it isn't the best gourmand of all time, its way up the list! I have tried thousands, and this is top 5, sometimes even my number 1, depending on my mood. I had to make my roommate a decant for his sheets, it's his hands down favorite out of all of my 200ish perfumes- and I make him smell them all! So the verdict between the men and my life and myself is the same, this perfume is amazing- if not the best, one of the best.

Good luck

UPDATE:
I just had to order 2 more bottles :) As I said, I cannot be without this fragrance and mine are getting pretty low. I want to give him the half full bottle because he loves it so much on his sheets and I noticed his decant was getting low. I want both him and I to enjoy my fragrances to the absolute full extent, and that includes sheets and occasional air freshener uses. If I couldn't afford to use it the way I do, I wouldn't, but I can, and with that in mind I want to enjoy this fragrance all the time... I have never used a bottle so quickly lol! I think this perfume will be a life long obsession for my roommate and I. I can't imagine growing tired of its comforting sweetness and luxurious aroma.

Still not a fan of Pink Sugar, this is worlds better after extensive testing on both fragrances. This is the ultimate gourmand comfort scent that everyone who enjoys should be allowed to experience at least once (even though I did not like it for a long time and many tests). It grew on me so much it became a favorite.
PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO NOT DISCONTINUE THIS! I would have to get 10 bottles if I even heard rumor of discontinuation, after Tihota got discontinued I am totally freaked they will stop making all my favorites. :(

First impression: Way to sweet cream cake filling, sugared berries, strawberry oil?
Almond essence (like the one you use in cooking) in the background. Cottoncandy, that's it! Overly sweet pink cottoncandy without the burnt notes.
An hour into the drydown it's very powdery.
I wasn't gonna give this scent one more chance but then I got the soft and powdery drydown..
After that, I keep coming back for more..

This delightful fragrance has - in spite of its strong character - something innocently angelic in it. It is very potent, don't get me wrong! Powerful and lasting, strong and sweet, yet it's also dainty somehow and as "ossini" says - fragile. I am getting the vanilla and forest fruits, but in a luxurious, but subtle and somehow elusive way. Delicious and inviting, this is truly magical gem - sumptuous and chaste at the same time. :-)

this fragrance is without any comparison. The simple ingredients-- orange blossom, fruits and vanilla are a complex composition that evokes 'La dolce vita' on my skin.Acqua e zucchero is analagous to 'the HAUTE COUTURE of fruity florals'. Expensive but I wear this regularly; its been over 3 yrs and I still have about 15 ml left...stunningly sexy .UPDATE; JUST BOUGHT ANOTHER BOTTLE

Aqua e Zucchero is not simply “Sugar Water”, its a high premium perfume, a very soft sparkling fragrance, very fragile, not gluey or sleazy.
Although its not childish it reminds me of being a child on the safe hand of my grandfather who always spoiled me by buying me sweets and little toys at the kermis....
Its like a memory of the joy I had on the little carrousels or the happiness I felt riding on a clumsy little Haflinger Pony. It also brings pictures in my mind of my smiling grandmother, who watched me eating Cotton Candy and caramelized roast apples in my good Sunday dress with the patent leather shoes.
I would like to describe Aqua e Zucchero with the colour “rose” or “soft light pink”.
It can be compared to Aquolina – Pink Sugar, but its more natural, gentle, delicate, mellow, and higher premium. The delicious sweet smell of Cotton Candy will charm you.
A fragrance that will enrich your life and brings delight into the life of people that will be so lucky to smell Aqua e zucchero on you.
