Not a brash blast, but a gentlemanly restrained lemon citrus note with traditional lavender make for a nice and fresh opening. In the drydown pine wood provides depth, and a mild peppery note appears towards the end. The longevity of four hours is excellent for such a Cologne. A great classic.
I have to say at the outset that I own a sensational citrus-based fragrance (vintage Eau de Guerlain) so every other similar scent that I try is measured (maybe unconsciously some of the time) against that high standard. Be aware of some innate prejudice on my part now and again!
B.B. strikes my nose as a good, classic, if somewhat simplistic fragrance. A discrete and tasteful combination but to my nose it's not a stand-out. I respect the fact that this fragrance has been in production since 1902; it's certainly a classic worth trying.
The opening is quite tart and sharp; after about 20-30 minutes some lavender appears and this softens the fragrance into a more feminine mode. There is a decided pepper note that appears quite early in the development as well. The drydown is very musky on me, with wafting notes of pine appearing now and again, taking it back into a more masculine scent. I like this phase but have to say that many women would find it too musky.
Sillage is low after the first 2 hours, and longevity is about 6 hours on me. If you have the opportunity, give it a try. Certainly a classic for its type.
Pros: Balanced, classic
Cons: Longevity could be better"
This is an understated, classically composed scent dominated primarily by citruses and florals. Because of its soft projection, it can be used in many contexts, including work, dining, dates, going out, or just lounging around the house. I highly recommend Blenheim Bouquet especially for those looking to consider an offering from the past that remains still timeless.
