Reviews of Grenades

This review is for the Keiko Mecheri scent called "Grenats"; I think Grenades may be a Perfumed Court error that has propagated here, but I'm not entirely sure.

After Peau de Peche I was really looking forward to this one, but I'm afraid it's a generic fruity/aquatic/annoying scent of no particular interest. I confess an aversion to the entire genre, so please take my thumbs down with a grain of salt. To me, this scent is actively unpleasant - it's the olfactory equivalent of chewing on tin foil. But I get this same sensation from many fragrances in this category.

I'm not smelling much that could be interpreted as pomegranate. Despite the pomegranate craze, I'm skeptical that pomegranates have a flavor in real life - to me they just seem like a pleasant vehicle for delivering citric acid.

I was surprised at first—I smelled absolutely nothing. Within a half-minute the dry, delicate Angelica notes began to crescendo and when they reached a point of perfect strength; that’s pretty much where it stayed. To my nose, Grenades is a linear Angelica scent with soft rose in the background, temporarily. The musk from the base (and to a lesser extent the woods) joins beautifully with the Angelica, but I can’t smell the pomegranate! This fragrance has been called “sweet” and / or “fruity,” but you can’t prove it by me, because on my skin it is so very dry, natural, and translucently understated. I would call Grenades “unisex” but perhaps tilted a little toward the feminine. What I get out of this is…that I like very much, but I am a bit concerned about a possible selective anosmia in regard to the “fruity” pomegranate—it’s just not there. That concern aside, I find this a very admirable, long-lasting fragrance—natural, ethereal, less complex but more complete than Angeliques Sous La Pluie, although the Angelica note in Grenades isn’t as beautiful as the Angelica note the Malle fragrance.
