Galimard GRASSE A TOI is a relatively rich fruity floral fragrance with a decidedly reddish bent. Not only is the liquid itself colored red—for ready identification?—the fruits featured also appear to be raspberry-like. Happily, there is no gooey bottom-of-the-jam-jar effect in this composition, although the fruit facet is definitely dominant. This creation smells quite a bit more natural than most of the mainstream red berry scents around, so I'd definitely recommend it to those who appreciate this genre. With neither plastic nor Nutrasweet notes, this perfume is also not marred by the highly synthetic BHT chemical soup smell so common in celebrity fruity floral-frags today.
Pleasantly sweet and simple, with just enough resinousness to give it a slightly perfumey feeling, GRASSE A TOI is a quality fruity-floral fragrance with a decided emphasis on the fruit. Left to my own devices, I'd be hard pressed, in fact, to identify the floral notes present here, but they do temper the sweetness so as to render the overall composition wearable even by me, someone who does not generally don fruity florals. This one is definitely better than some of the red jam offerings from the house of Givenchy.
