Review | Fendi L’Acquarossa eau de parfum

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

Red is the color of passion, femininity and fire. And it is also the color of the newest Fendi fragrance, L’Acquarossa. L’Acquarossa – which translates into red water – aims at a strong yet sophisticated woman who is proud, elegant and ultra feminine. The fragrance is powerful, sensual and full of temperament, just like the woman who wears it. And since I am a strong fierce woman myself (cough) the new Fendi L’Acquarossa is perfect for me!

Fendi L’Acquarossa comes in a sleek rectangular red bottle with golden and black details. Very elegant. The bottle alone oozes power and class. No frivolous girly girl stuff here!

The fragrance itself is also strong and sophisticated. In the base notes of the perfume you will discover the seductive smell of red cedarwood, musk and patchouli. In the heart notes you will find the fruity spicy smell of Lantana flower, rose, orange blossom and magnolia. And in the top notes you will recognize the vivacious and intoxicating smell of bergamot, tangerine and plum.

Now of course I didn’t figure all this out by myself – describing scents and analyzing perfumes is difficult – but one thing is for sure: Fendi L’Acquarossa is a complex and unique fragrance that smells very feminine and at the same time very powerful. Some might find L’Acquarossa a bit too heavy or overpowering, but I personally like strong perfumes. My taste in perfume is like my taste in music: very wide and diverse. Again, describing a perfume is difficult and very personal, but if you like rich, hypnotizing fragrances then I think you will like Fendi’s new L’Acquarossa.

The Fendi L’Acquarossa eau de parfum is available in 30 ml, 50 ml and 75 ml for respectively 77.90 CHF, 112 CHF and 137 CHF. All products from the Fendi L’Acquarossa line are sold exclusively at Marionnaud.

Do you like strong perfumes or do you prefer more subtle fragrances?

  1. Qua omschrijving denk ik; dit parfum is mij op het lijf geschreven ;-) De verpakking ziet er ook prachtig uit. Ik ben benieuwd! Ik zal hem zeker binnenkort besnuffelen.

  2. Sounds promising, I need to test it the next time I’m in a perfumery shop!
    I’m always on the hunt for good new perfume, so I’m quite curious to find out how this one smells!


  3. I’m so bad at describing/figuring out perfumes! That’s a really hard thing. I cannot figure out what lantana flowers may smell mike, lol! Yes I suck …
    I still need to go to the shop and smell it! But I’ll look out for this one, I need a new scent for Fall-winter. I’m looking for an intense fragrance, because you only need a tiny drop and stays all day, and the bottle last for ages! I love those, head-turners fragrances! I remember once a guy asking me in the bus what perfume I had on, lol :)

  4. Hey Melissa, I’ve been trying this one as well! It’s very interesting. I don’t think you get lantana a lot in fragrances. But you’re right: this one is not girly. It’s very woman-y!

  5. Il est fort possible que j’apprécie ce parfum car j’aime les parfum fort comme Alien de Thierry Mugler ou Coco Chanel mais aussi les doux comme Anais de Cacharel,sa dépend ^^
    En ce moment j’adore La Vie Est Belle de Lancome :)

  6. I usually take the natural approach to fragrance and stick with essential oils like lemongrass, vanilla. If I do purchase a fragrance, I like soft, barely there scents.

  7. I love the pictorial description of the notes! More brands should do that, I think – sometimes I don’t know the name of a flower or note, but when I see the picture, it’s simple!

  8. I like subtle or fresh citrusy fragrances for summer. I like heavier warm fragrances for winter. The weather has began to cool here (mush to my dismay) and for the first time in months today I started wearing something heavy (Dior Hypnotic Poison, gifted to my by a friend of my mum a few years ago and I adore it now). I think tomorrow I’ll go back to light because I want my summer to continue! x

  9. I bet this thing smells really good! The scent looks very unique and I too don’t know how to analyze scents but it looks really cool!I am always intrigued at all the different smells of perfumes hehe
