Have to say I quite like it. Opens up with an intense blast of lemon/citron zest and settles down to fresh, spicy, peppery woods with the citrus still lingering in the background. Similar structure as the original Terre using different notes. I like the fact it’s fresh without being sweet, because the combination of mineral and spicy notes and the citron result in a bitterness and, indeed, an ‘icy’ feel I really enjoy. This should be very nice, refreshing and classy in warmer weather.
Can’t really compare it to Eau Tres Fraiche because I don’t own it and I last tried it a long time ago, but from memory I’d say it’s a lot closer to the original Terre than it is to Tres Fraiche (or any of the other flankers).
This sounds very promising! I just picked up 30ml Eau Tres Fraiche with a 125ml refill bottle - never tried it before but enjoying it in HK Springtime. I guess that's lucky if it's going. That said, this new one sounds good and if it's closer to the original TdH then even better!
