Hugh Parsons Blue (aka Traditional)
(1998) Top Notes: Lemon, Mandarin, Blackberry Middle Notes: Pepper, Angelica, Cardamom, Juniper Base Notes: Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Ambergris A refreshing, masculine, tonic fragrance. it is characterized by spicy and green/herbal notes, with citrus and fruit in the top note and a woody-ambery base. I first encountered this scent a few years ago and took it on a trip to Hawaii with me. At that time, I was very struck by the juniper, angelica and spice notes, which along with the citrus, put me very much in mind of gin and tonic. Ever since that time, I have always associated this scent with the Islands and with the cocktail hour. I think these are pretty good associations for a fragrance, so I can't help but think highly of it.
