Way Off Scenter's Review of Anice by Etro

Genre: Fougère

Pretty much what it says on the bottle. The opening is anise and salty black licorice, which cycle slowly toward a more herbaceous, bittersweet, yet still recognizably anisic accord in the heart. From there it's pretty linear and uncomplicated, if not terribly potent or long-lasting.

I'm not entirely sure what to make of this stuff. I think it does a better job than either Caron's Eau de Réglisse or Hermès's Brin de Réglisse, but I don't find it all that wearable. In the end, it's not merely a gourmand – it's a food flavor. More of a curiosity than a perfume, if you ask me.
