Looking quite puzzled, my assistant uttered "Sir, I didn't think you had any more powdery scents." I went on to explain that I had recently received a decant of this long-discontinued scent from Nino Cerruti, and was trying it for the first time. Thus, he was very proper to have made the observation he did. Fair Play goes on as a fairly sharp citrus-herbal scent, and then magically morphs over the next 20-30 minutes into a powdery herbal/woodsy scent, featuring the basil, lavender, bergamot, and pine. It's still going strong after two hours and has yet to reach its basenotes. Overall, this is a very intriguing scent with few peers in my experience.
