great scent and great aesthetic but unfortunately after 30 minutes it's totally gone. no one can smell this after those beautiful 30 min and it fells like you're wearing no perfume at all. I really don't understand why it's sooooooo short lived. it's like you're spraying perfumed water on yourself that in no time will totally evaporate. such a waste of ...... well everything.
I think the top notes create olfactory fatigue, and so many feel it has poor longevity. Because I try to avoid top notes as much as possible, this doesn't happen to me, and I get a strong 5 hours with two full sprays to the chest, though the sillage is moderate. It comes across to me as one big accord, with citrus and vetiver being in charge. I don't really smell much in the way of tea, rosemary, or nutmeg. There is a mild musky quality, but more like laundry detergent than something animalic. It's not sweet, and I think that helps make it feel "light," yet full and rich. Certainly, this is a great "office" or school fragrance. While "simple," it doesn't really get boring, though I don't wear the same fragrance two days in a row, so if you do that, then it might get boring. Overall, this is well done and has no "flaws," but don't expect some sort of olfactory revelation here.
This is excellent. Refined, clever, slightly strange but so, so wearable.It's dusty, musky citrus filtered through the mulch of hedgerows and laced with shitake mushrooms. Superb, Japanese elegance, like yesterday's Comme des Garcons shirt, left outside overnight.Or maybe like a big, cuddly Panda supplemented its usual diet of bamboo shoots with a cup of good quality tea and a nice, ripe grapefruit - and then burped. Or maybe not.
Sad this lives for so short of a time. It's a wonderful citrus opening with qualities like Guerlain's Vetiver but it's missing key components making it NOT a vetiver scent (even though there is vetiver). Maybe I'm rambling but when I first sprayed this I thought it was Guerlain. No wait it's Vetiver Glacee! No wait... M; Men? What the heck? It's a lovely light-hearted scent and stereotypical of most Japanese designer scents. It simply doesn't last long enough to be enjoyed thoroughly. What a great opening act. Too bad the headlining bad was terrible.
This is a tart yet refeshing grapefruit and lemon with some light woods, vetiver, and unisex musk lying underneath. But, the real star is the citrus; everything else is almost incidental. It is natural-smelling, simple, and linear - a perfect summer frag. No frills here, people. It's almost as though it's saying, "Don't overanalyze me. Just frolic." If the good folks at Ocean Spray ever decide to create a fragrance, they should buy this recipe and market it using television ads scored to Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry, Be Happy."
