Citrus Petals is a pretty simple fragrance. It starts with a lovely burst of freshness with linden blossoms and neroli. It definitely has a wonderful spring-like accord. It is not really sweet at all, which is nice. The opening linden-citrus notes stick around for a while – maybe one to two hours or so, and then it begins a soft decent to a nice simple woody musk base. The base is very light and clean, but not soapy, just pleasant. I particularly enjoy wearing this in the early spring when wonderful fresh blossoms smell so good but a bit of warmth is still required. It is a nice lovely fragrance. I believe it is now discontinued, although it can still be found online.
Anyone who is broken hearted about not being able to find it anymore should try the Jo Malone French Lime Blossom. FLB is a different, though similar, fragrance with a similar sunny freshness in the use of linden blossom and citrus. Rather than moving toward a soft musk base as in CP, FLB moves to soft, light, white flowers cologne that is also very pretty.
