I think the Southern California June gloom may finally be over, and we are getting some warm weather now. I welcome it, and my old age has made me appreciate hot weather a lot more, as I sometimes feel I am always freezing. It also made me reach out this morning for Tom Ford’s Mandarino de Amalfi. I remember when I used to have a big trip every year, and obviously that’s not happening this year. But I can spritz and feel like I am at the Amalfi Coast, right? Mandarino de Amalfi makes me feel like that. Even though it is really just your basic cologne, it has some notes that give it heft and personality. The grapefruit, lemon, and basil mix make it a little different, and it has some slightly bitter elements. There is a bit of jasmine in my skin that keeps it interesting for me, and the dry down is a citrus floral white musk. I can close my eyes and feel like I am in Positano, and for now, that’s good enough.
