Reviews of Eau de Pamplemousse Rose

Tried my sample sprayer a few times, then gave it away. I can like the smell of grapefruit, if blended well with other notes, but this is just grapefruit pure and simple. Bitter and sulphurous, and lasts for about five minutes. The best grapefruit scent to my nose is actually Hermes Eau de Rhubarbe Ecarlate, where it seems blended with rhubarb and rose.

Thumbs Up for a fresh, crisp, true-to-life grapefruit scent! The drydown is also quite fresh and clean. PERFECT for the office: My office perfume Grinch proclaimed it agreeable, and he's a hard one to please! :)

(Thumbs Down for a VERY quick fade out....After 2 hours I could barely smell on my skin at all.) For a Hermes scent with Hermes pricing, I expect a bit more, even from an EdT.

This will be a great summer scent though....perfect for nights out. I have a Scentbird travel spray bottle of this scent, so I can refresh as needed.

I find that I really enjoy most anything of JC Ellena's creations that I come across...This is a beauty!

You get a blast of grapefruit when you first try this on. For me it's a bright, pleasant, uncomplicated scent. Reminds me of eating breakfast before work on a sunny, summer, early morning. Unfortunately it only lasts about as long as it takes to eat breakfast, not even that long, and then it's gone. So short-lived, it's untrue. I wouldn't buy it again, for that reason, but apparently there is a concentré version, which I might try.
I bought a bottle of this blind at Schiphol airport, but I had to use so much of this to even get it to last half an hour on me, I decided to give it away to someone who I know loves very subtle citrusy scents.

Red grapefruit is the star here. It is an ingredient that is deserving of the spotlight as it creates a confident opening and can be smelled all day without giving the wearer a headache. The tart and sweet are balanced and enjoyable. I found that the fragrance did not evolve much throughout the day, however it is a pleasant smell so I did not get tired of it. It did fade by late afternoon and is now barely detectable on my skin. I also would have liked there to be a savory or woodsy note.
The Good: Grapefruit done well and balanced.
The Bad: The intro and the outro are very similar and not far apart.
Overall: If it lasted longer and had a savory or woodsy note I would be a big fan.

This really smells like a typical Hermes fragrance. A grapefruit citrus opening that smells like your typical "eau de cologne" backed by peppery earthy grassy mineral notes. If you've smelled Terre d'Hermes, Voyage and even Orange Concentree Vert, you've practically smelled this one as well.
