    Clean, floral, fresh, rich and soft aromatic citrus. Splendid natural scent. Overhelming crisp edible freshness - don't wear it if you are thirsty!

    8/10

    (Aromatic Spicy, F). Lovely top notes and I was going to say that next to Olène I like this one the best. But again there's that strong, spicey base that makes it hard to breathe. What's in it? "orange, grapefruit, saffron, cinnamon, rose, ginger, cedar, incense, musk"

    I got it from one very nice girl as a sample, when i first tried it i was not being able to recognise quality scents, citruses do make me feel think of cheap stuff but here my first impression was wow so strong but not sharp, smelled like pressed lemon in the camomile tea, evaporating from hot tea, natural mild but high C:-) , all that mixed with airy rose, and incense, smells refined natural and perfect for summer! I think it is a bit on the feminine side but its very beautiful! Its perfectly balanced, nothing spicy just as alfarom said cologne with a twist!!

    This is what I call "an Eau De Cologne with a twist". The usual citrus floral pattern of many fragrances of this type is brilliantly enriched by a fascinating accord of saffron and incense that's incredibly similar to the one found on the latest Comme Des Garcons EDP from 2011 but, where the CDG pushes on the accelerator by introducing its typical wierd/synthetic hallmark, L'Eau De Tarocco smells incredibly natural and, while surely more understated, it is still able to remark its presence with a considerable amount of personality.

    A citrus ologram during the opening joined by woods, incense and saffron while a petit rose note serves as a subtle yet remarkable refinement. Clean, summery and very original. Bettern worn on fabric to play it in slow motion. Highly recommended. Big thumbs up!

    Superb sparkling fresh, zesty blood orange/grapefruit opening follwed by a dry, warm spicy/cedar phase that somehow retains a certain sunny freshness.

    My mum fresh squeezes orange juice every morning and slow bakes the juiceless left-over orange shells in the bottom shelf of her Aga to make firelighters (thrifty tip, baked orange shells make excellent free firelighters). This smell (the drydown) slightly reminds me of a sunny day in her kitchen when the door is wide open onto the kitchen garden and there's orange shells baking in the Aga and maybe she's cooking a Moroccan tagine on the top shelf at the same time.

    (Aga is a brand of big cooking ranges that store heat so are always hot, sort of thing you find in big country house kitchens in England)

    This is pretty good stuff. Anything that puts wood, spice and incense into a dry package has pretty much got my interest, and this one does that. There are good citrus notes at the start: the orange and grapefruit are realistic and distinct. The scent takes on a clean, bright character with hints of incense, wood, and a spice melange. The scent is subtle and enjoyable. At times a restrained and dignified rose note appears, and that is very well done. The scent is quietly compelling, dry, and translucent.
