Sweet juicy tangerines and neroli blossoms open up Carpe Diem, quickly followed by dry aromatics and cedar. The citrus soon takes a back seat to the woods and aromatics as some very fresh, sweet floral notes join the neroli at Carpe Diem’s heart. The resulting accord is brisk, but also very tender, and brings to mind a garden in the summer breeze. Carpe Diem is no marathon runner, though, and within a couple of hours it’s dried down to a gentle woody base with hints of clean musk and vanilla. A nice summer scent, but I’d have preferred if it lasted longer.
