Smells like a jooly rancher. Not my thing, but very fresh and citrusy. Comparable to Diptyque Oyedo.
Kumquat Alhambra (Kumquat) is a light, fruity citrus fragrance that smells a lot like lemonade to me, with a dry down of limeade. It is very much a simple pure citrus fragrance with the smell of lemons, limes and oranges. The top notes are so light that the fragrance is hard to detect, though it does get a little stronger as it dries down when the weak white musk note shows up. The pepper eventually shows up but so lightly that it's barely there at all. Oh, and it’s also more feminine than unisex, so the fact that it’s called a men’s fragrance is way off. Overall, this fragrance lacks depth, has poor quality of notes, is poorly blended and is much too oversimplified. There are some Wal-Mart body sprays that have more depth that this one. Too fleeting, too simple and much too bland -- Kumquat Alhambra is a rare disappointment from Comptoir Sud Pacifique.
