This isn't quite unpalatable, but it's trying. On the attack it borders on pleasant. Refreshing, even. But then come the heart and base notes - a mess of sweet synthetic fruit and unfocussed, slightly green spice.
To its credit, it does last, and sillage is respectably moderate - enough to be noticeably but not overpowering.
Very nicely done (like most things from Marks and Sparks).A classic fragrance in every way with a simple invigorating opening,through an unexpectedly robust and spicy middle of pepper and lavender to an elegant drydown of melon,citrus and coriander. This one probably won't turn any heads but nonetheless it's a magnificently competent fragrance all the way through and a pleasure to wear.
