You should be a European applicant with Asian roots. The good thing is you should capitalize on how this mix of both cultures has shaped up your personality and made it multi-dimensional. This insight will matter more to the adcom than what the legal papers say.

Citizenship is #1, you will be competing against other Asians from your country. They will also assess how you compare to those with Asian heritage in terms of bringing diversity (age, gender, industry, function, background, LGBT, etc)

What schools are you applying to? Generally I agree that you would be seen as a European candidate with Asian heritage but if you apply to a school in the specific Asian country where you were born, for example, the mix could make you stand out. And the same goes if you are applying to a school in the specific European country where you have your citizenship now. You might be seen as a “minority” candidate there, which is a good thing!
