Notes listed on the Now Smell This blog review are:
ginger blossom, lime, jasmine, heliotrope,
shea fruit, amber, ebony & ginger
My Afrika opens with a bright citrus that is very lemony to my nose. I don't detect the florals, with the exception of heliotrope - which gives a vanilla like essence to this warm weather refresher. The ginger is fizzy & tingly, adding vibrancy to that already lively citrus. I'm amazed at the lifespan of the lime (lemon) note here...and unlike Goutal's Eau d' Hadrien, it doesn't ever become predominantly woody. I haven't found this available for purchase in the US, but believe it can still be found in Italy. A clever and well done twist on a citrus scent, I'd say it's worth seeking out.
