Latest Reviews of Knot
I get the citrus freshness throughout, which is nice and not too synthetic on my skin, but the base is the letdown here IMHO. The performance is all right with moderate sillage, adequate projection and six hours of longevity - all right but not truly impressive.
This overall quite summery creation thus has its pros and cons, and I am sitting at the fence whether it deserves a positive score or not. I opt for positive, but it makes this score by the skin of its teeth. 2.75/5
The opening was generic green freshness, maybe with a bit of citrus, not bad but a little boring. Unfortunately, as soon as the top notes started to fade, a very strange and unpleasant synthetic combination of notes came to the front. I did not get clean laundry nor the flower notes of orange blossom and rose. What I did get was a scent very similar to the ones in cheap imitation perfumes, that mix of harsh 80s hairspray (the cheap ones, not the more expensive which smelt nicer) and bug repellent which all the cheapest imitation perfumes in the "dollar stores" have. I tested both on skin and on a paper strip and this happened in both.
Could simply be a matter of personal taste, though I usually do like a nice citrusy-floral fragrance.
The scent shifts gears abruptly into a light skin musk, with a hint of leathery iris.
That's about all there is to say. A pleasant scent.
