August – Florence by Tocca

Tocca Florence

My fragrance review for August is the juicy and sparkling Florence EDP by Tocca.  A superbly crisp pear introduction followed through into delicate florals makes this a sublime perfume for summer or even into Autumn.

It’s depth and projection makes it ideal for balmy summer nights – the fresh juiciness of the pear cuts through the humidity and the floral heart notes are left as your evening progresses – a little dancing, a walk on the beach or relaxing in a cabana – this fragrance can handle anything.

As summer gives way to rainy autumn days – you are reminded of the warmth of summer as the fragrance lingers on the skin with the tender base notes of musk.

Gets 3.75/5 stars from me – I love it, the depth and projection of the florals – the opening burst of the pears, it is delicious and much more complex that another major brand with a big fruity opening (apples!)  I just wish it lasted all day – but that is fairly rare in modern perfumes so I would be happy to have this in my regular rotation of fragrances.

Scale of star ratings;

1-2 – Average fragrance, pleasant enough to wear but there are better examples for you to spend your money on.

2-3 – Above average, usually has a few flaws like lack of longevity, poor base notes but has something enjoyable about it.  Try Britney’s Curious

3-4 – Definitely worth trying, either for its unusual notes, complexity or charm.  Versatile fragrance – could a perfect office scent or weekend choice.  Prada L’Eau Ambre, Tocca’s Florence, Dolce Vita,

4-4.75 – An outstanding fragrance, either a modern classic or an outstanding niche that could be referred to as a “signature scent” Usually a warm, charming and long-lasting sillage (how long it lasts) and makes women feel amazing.  My examples are J’Adore, Coco Mademoiselle, Black Orchid, Angel

5 – One of the best fragances ever made.  Rare to give out but there are a few examples!  Coco, Chanel No5, Shalimar, Carnal Flower,
