    Very nice but take it with you to refresh throughout the day as it fades...

    Caswell Massey Verbena is a soliflore that truly smells like a cologne made from the crushed leaves of a fresh lemon verbena plant. There is no other note, nothing else to round out the composition. If you are looking for a true verbena single note scent that has better tenacity than other verbena colognes, you have found your grail here.

    Caswell-Massey's Verbena is a delightful scent with some serious drawbacks. Although fresh, pure, lemony and uplifting, the cologne evaporates so quickly that no one else will even know you are wearing it. If it lasted further, I would recommend it without any hesitation.

    Man this stuff's aggressive! This may well be the strongest, sharpest lemon and/or verbena opening I've ever found in a bottle rather than crushed between my fingers (though let me admit for the record that I haven't smelled the verbena plant itself). It has a certain green astringence which I would assign to peels and leaves if any of it's coming from lemon rather than verbena. Maintains an herbalness which feels as cool as mint but doesn't smell like actual mint, though this starts to become a bit too dirt-like later on. As the typical citrus topnotes disappear, the only remaining citrus is the burn...upon breathing deeply over the sprayed spot I feel a delayed but rather strong burn in my sinuses. Admittedly, this test goes above and beyond the bounds of normal sniffing, but to put it in perspective, only a rare handful of scents cause this reaction for me. I'm fairly certain that smelling this frag is resulting in my not being able to fully take in the other that I'm trying to review concurrently...it smells different than how it always did in the past. So enjoy Caswell Massey Verbena, but don't assume you'll be able to smell anything else properly for a while afterward. Still, it's a pretty refreshing room spray.

    Like most Caswell-Massey offerings, this is a simple composition that's got amazing longevity. Straight forward lemony (and somewhat oily) goodness. Like Lemon Pledge or some kinda cleaning agent. Rich and bold. It does what it does.

    I have to agree that this one has superior longevity for a frag of its type. (Most verbena frags are wimpy and pale and peter out early on, only to be copiously re-applied.) A good American fragrance -- solid and simple and straightforward.
