An usually beautiful scent, Ballade À Venise (Roberto Capucci 1996) is honeyed yet bright and crisp. The olive blossom and passion fruit are gorgeous and the orange blossom and jasmine are anything but heavy. Like a warm sea breeze on a sunny day or a perfectly crisp green apple at its best, this is the most enjoyable kind if sweet.
Top notes: mandarin, orange blossom and marigold. Middle notes: olive blossom, ylang-ylang, jasmine and passion fruit. Base notes: galbanum.
