* Beautiful blend of a citrus style and blue "freshie" style cologne
* Strong citrus opening
* Great drydown that blends the citrus with fresh aquatic and musky aromas
* Good alternative to more expensive designer citrus colognes
* Good performance for a citrus style cologne
* Excellent for Spring and Summer user
* Strong alcoholic blast on the opening; needs a couple of minutes to settle
* Not as unique a scent as it is made out to be
Clasico di Profondo is a clone of the beloved Acqua di Gio Profondo. It has a lovely and very strong citrus blast on the opening. Do note that there is a strong alcoholic bite on the opening before you get to the citrus, but to be fair I have noticed that uniformly in all citrus based colognes I've used. Once that dies down, the citrus is beautiful and long lasting. On the drydown, the fresh aquatic notes come into play, with lovely ozonic and musky notes. This is very much the love child of a traditional citrus forward cologne and a blue "freshie" cologne. In fact, you could probably recreate this simply by layering any citrus cologne (Ex: Acqua di Gio, Clasico De Intenso, Bois de Yuzu, etc.) with any blue freshie cologne (Ex: Bleu de Chanel, Y!, Yeah!, etc.) in your collection and achieve the exact same result.
Performance is surprisingly good for a citrus style cologne, quite noticeable even a few hours after application. This is excellent for Spring and Summer user. Definitely a day scent that would be great for everyday use, festive occasions and outdoor activities.
All the praise deserved here, do note that there are plenty of similar colognes out there and the scent is not as unique as many would have you believe. Versace Man Eau Fraiche which I own immediately comes to mind as being nearly identical as does Dolce & Gabbana's Light Blue. Clasico de Profondo, however, is far more affordable and of equal quality so it's a no brainer and a steal. Recommended.
