The number of perfumes in the world is almost countless. A lot of these fragrances are pretty straightforward, and fit reasonably well into one of the eight fragrance styles known from classic perfumery: citrus, floral, fruity, green, oceanic, oriental, spicy and woody (also known as cyphre). It takes a master perfumer to create a perfume that balances all these elements in a well-rounded fragrance that simply can’t be pinned down. Luckily, Otentic has such a scent artist: our perfumer Jean-Denis Saisse.


This month’s featured perfume, Aguamondo 3, is a member of the Aguamondo fragrance family. Aguamondo is a series of elegant aquatic perfumes, known for their ocean fresh notes and perfect for all-day wear. They evoke the feeling of a breezy day at the beach. This makes a Aguamondo perfume a perfect choice for a warm summery day!


Our Aguamondo 3 is certainly no ordinary aquatic scent. It has an oceanic heart, but top notes of citrusy bergamot and a more intense, spicy, woody base of cashmere wood and sandalwood. It simply has it all. This special composition makes it a sophisticated yet sporty perfume that is both rich and smooth, like a well-designed suit. Sensual and deep, yet somehow still fresh and light. This lovely complexity makes Aguamondo 3 one of our absolute favourites.


Bergamot plays a very important role in keeping Aguamondo 3 crisp and sunny. The bergamot orange is a fragrant citrus fruit, mainly grown in Southern Italy, that looks a bit like a lime. Bergamot has a unique and complex scent, all at once zesty, spicy, floral and sweet. Exactly the fragrance you imagine when you think of a golden-lit Italian citrus orchard. If you’re a fan, consider growing some bergamot in your garden. Not only will it make your garden smell heavenly, the plant is also known to attract lots of bees and butterflies.

Purchase your Aguamondo 3 and get that summer buzzing!
