The opening was indeed a mix of Basil and Neroli - Jo Malone is pretty good in keeping the results the names of their products promise. More basil on me though, a basil that had a nigh-indolic chemical undertone initially that, fortunately, resolved with time. The neroli grew stronger; a brighter biut not a very fruity or intense neroli that expresses a touch of bergamot-like characteristics at times.

Later on a bunch of white musks took over, with sone white florals in the background. A very subtle vetiver comes and goes, a vetiver without any earthiness or any mojo of note, more a perfunctory vetiver as far as it developed on my skin.

I get moderate sillage, adequate projection and a very decent nine hours of longevity on my skin.

A simple creation for spring days, with ingredients that never really display and excellence or beauty to any significant extent. A nice and well-crafted composition though. 2.75/5

Very perfume-y. Herbal and heady floral aroma. No sweetness. A steady "green"... Stays fresh and green, fairly linear for a long time.

Vetiver increases the green vibe and musk gives it a soft coating. A rather safe fragrance; not overly creative.

A green floral masquerading as an EDC. Love the snapped stems of the basil note. This Basil note is more assertive than the one in Lime, Basil & Mandarin. I really like the basil with the neroli; they're a great team! Neroli can get sickly sweet, but the basil keeps it in check. Despite it being technically a green floral, this has a lot of resemblance to 4711 and the like, minus the lemon introduction. This has possibilities.

Smells very similar to Ferrari Bright Neroli. That's a good thing. The Neroli note is well crafted and the Basil note gives it a slight greenness that is essential for warmer weather. 7.5/10

Ultra-clean and simple, Basil & Neroli felt to me more like a ladies' scent than masculine.

Both neroli, with its waxy-lemony floral trait, and tasty basil are the stars of the show, with slight support of musk and dry, woody chocolate-y vetiver.

Fresh, sensual, spicy and full of greenness, B&N does feel so easy and basic a scent to wear.

Among the many anonymous scents in the JM range, this is a winner. Citrus and herbs, an excellent feminine (largely) summer scent.
