    Fascinating...and just a little revolting. Pulp opens with a crisp apple note that becomes creamy with a liqueur-like orange and vanilla quality that could be the fig as it starts fresh and earthy then dries down to the deeper dried fruit and resinous depth of generic "unisex" cologne. There is another dip after twenty minutes or so to a slightly withered floral and overripe fruit that is so muddy it can't be identified as any one scent. This wears close to the skin and is by turns sweet and earthy. Lasts approximately 5 hours on skin and clothes.

    White flowers, apples, figs, summer, easy, balanced, just right, alluring, signature, white T-shirt. These words all ring clearly in my mind (and nose) when i wear this.

    It's nothing extraordinary but it's so well put together in a way that is very convincing and could become addicting to the wearer. And the final outcome of the blend just smells great. Period.

    I do get the infamous "rotten fruits" vibe , but only in the top notes. I would actually describe them as "smoky fruits" to be honest and i don't find them that repulsive at all.

    This really starts to blossom in the heart and in the drydown when the white flowers start to come out. Just beautiful.

    I really like this.

    Thumbs up from me !

    Pure passionfruit! And surprisingly not sweet or syrupy sickly at all. Whilst greenish, there is none of that leafy or tree sap overtone that, in particular, a lot of fig based scents have. This one is all about the fruit - but fresh, ripe and slightly citrusy fruit. This is a very strong scent but at the same time, happy and sunny. Although passionfruit is not listed as a note, I actually think that all the individual ingredients - black current, apple, fig and peach flower when combined in the right proportions 'become' passionfruit. Very unique, but used lightly, this scent is wonderful and not overpowering. Wear this scent during the day, when you're in the mood to rejoice.

    Way too busy

    I don't think I have ever used the word "annoying" to describe a scent, so this will be the first. Pulp is fruity, F-R-U-I-T-Y, really, really fruity. Not a fruit salad but a fruit mash.

    If I try really hard to say something nice about it, I might say that the illusion of fruit is very realistic: Pulp really does smell like real, actual fruit, not some vile chemical-created essence.

    Still, I find Pulp about as charming as a fly endlessly buzzing around you or a person who talks, talks, talks, and talks without saying anything.

    Pros: Fruity
    Cons: Fruity

    Fruit on Steroids

    Whoa- this one is going to give you your money's worth.

    Aptly named, this is all about the fruit- the pulp to be exact. The concentrated, sticky, squishy insides. An aggressive passion fruit opening- tart, full, juicy and an army of mangoes, citrus, apples and fig behind it. Passionfruit isn't listed as one of the notes, but its definitely there. Its very concentrated too, I am guessing the ingredient [I]Paradisamide[/I] has been used with abandon in this fragrance. There an ice cream we have here which has a shell of passion fruit sorbet and when the fumes of ice come off it, you get a very tart passionfruit note that is so sharp, it smells a little like mustard powder. Dry, bitter and spicy. I get this in the opening of Pulp, but it meanders away when the fruits start arriving en masse.

    Drying down, about 30 mins in the fig comes up more and starts to take on facets of Goutal's Un Matin D'orage, wet and earthy. This might be why some get the rotting aspect. Its warmer and more organic when it gets to this stage which can give the impression of spoiled fruit on the ground. I don't get the overwhelming rotting fruit, I can understand how it may come off this way but to me, its a very minimal side effect, its a little on the overripe side but never offensive.

    Lasting power is phenomenally strong, and its one of the best realistic fruity scents out there. No added sugar or candy notes, or cheap flowers taking centre stage, just a big hot mess of amped-up fruit. I don't know of any other fruity scent out there that performs like this, which makes it unique. The price is a little expensive, but is in line with the rest of the brand.

    Pros: Long lasting, linear, distinctive, bold
    Cons: Price

    A blast of fruit starting with citrus, then revealing more rounded notes such as fig, apple, and peach. An absolutely delightful gourmand that did not smell "rotten" at all to my nose. The combination actually reminds me of mango, if anything. Decidedly unisex.
