This is a lovely, light, citrus-tea scent. It gives Elizabeth Arden’s Green Tea a run for its money! I love it.
Bergamot, Grapefruit and Tangerine
Grape flower, Blackcurrant bud, green Mate, Lemon and orange
Sandalwood and Cedar
Given to me as a gift, Fleur de Vigne is about a plant species I have never heard of before (grape flower/plant of grapes? WTF) from a brand I had never tried any thing from before. Needless to say expectations couldnt be any lower. That said I found this light edc-type cologne to be a pleasant surprise.
The quality of ingredients don't disappoint - it opens with a sufficiently tart citrus blast with the acidic kick of grapefruit brought into a soft focus by the juicy plushness of tangerine. The opening dissipates in seconds to bring about a sweetened blackcurrant inspired heartnotes phase of lemon and oranges. 15-20 minutes later you are left with a decent woody base mostly composed of cedar, faint remnants of tart lemons and some whiffs of blackcurrant.
FdV is very fleeting and very light. Keep spraying it on with regularity to experience its grapefruit-orange-currant accord. It wont displace any of your current citrus heavyweights, but its not a cheaply made citrus blowhard either. Workmanlike and satisfying, it might be the Tina Fey of fragrances.
