The opening is a fresh and crisply zesty lemon note that is counterbalanced by some orange that later in the drydown sees some orange blossom added. Summery, bright and very nice. The comparison with L'Eau d'Issey, a staple of mine for years, is very apt. The end is a somewhat unexciting musky note, but in total there is more development here
Than is many other lemon-citrus centred scents.

For such a type of fragrance the performance is respectable, with moderate sillage, acceptable projection and a longevity of four hours on my skin. A pleasant traditional composition. 3/5

On initial application, Purple Water smells exactly like the lemon-scented washing powder I use in the laundry. After a couple of hours, the scent is a powerful musk that overwhelms everything else. I can't smell any ginger or basil notes at all. It scores well for longevity, but that's actually a drawback in this case.

What the heck am I missing here??

I get nothing except a weak lemonade top and a light woody drydown, all of which is totally gone in less than 10 minutes.

This is a quality upper-class cologne? I don't think so...

I must have been duped into buying a knock off or something, because what's in the bottle I have, isn't worth 2 cernts.

Lackluster and boring sum it up.

This unexpected find has proven my most pleasant olfactory surprise! I admittedly had never heard of the Asprey name, but one sniff of this wonderful soft and powdery citrus gem and I was hooked. Of all the fragrances I own, or have sampled, no fragrance better interweaves and melds with the balmy atmosphere of Miami. Layer it with Acqua di Parma Colonia's magical. In my eyes (and nose), this fragrance truly is the sleeper of all sleepers. Just lay back and enjoy. A lemon sunshine-scented TWO THUMBS UP!

Purple Water is a dainty, single ply citrus, bedecked with as much pretension as Asprey can muster.

Should you be dressed as a dandy and feel the need to cover your face with a moistened handkerchief, this might be perfect. Aside from being an effective defence against malodorous peasants, this is a fairly lacklustre fragrance for general use. By no means a bad product, but surpassed by countless fragrances of its type
