seeroos.syed's Review of 24 Elixir Neroli by ScentStory FZE

This may sound strange but this is less about neroli and more about a very green and plant-like banana note. Dominant notes to my nose are of spearmint leaves, white tea, and bergamot. Although it doesn't even include a banana note in it, the combination of notes just listed to my nose are very evocative of the scent of the green shell of an unripe banana. It smells like you're walking in a banana grove after it had just rained. The only fragrances this is comparable to are Dyptique's Philosykos and Tom Ford Venetian Bergamot, to my nose - it literally smells like both combined into one scent. As it dries down it becomes a bit more sweet while still retaining the green banana scent. I feel like this should have been called '24 Elixir Green Banana'. Projection is moderate but on the strong side, while longevity is fairly good with 4 hours of solid projection. Overall, this isn't really a neroli fragrance but it's a pretty amazing smelling green citrus fragrance nonetheless and incredibly unique.

4.5/5
