This fragrance puzzled me, so I decided to try and check it a little more closely.
First minutes = Smells like fresh cut blades of grass to me. Bitter and bracing. If it stayed that way, it would be very simplistic but still tolerable in my book because I love so much nature.
Around 30 to 45 minutes, fortunately, it becomes more subtle and complex: Lime kicks in. At the same time, it is a little powdery. On top of this accent, it also becomes more ozonic, woody, earthy. Evokes clean, fresh, peaceful countryside. A lot more lovable for me as it has now taken on a great classical quality.
Longevity is very good. Projection is very discrete in the drydown, so I will tend to use a few extra sprays.
In the end, a quality, nice, very summery fragrance.
I've worn many YR mens fragrances over the years,but this is one of my favourites.
The initial blast of citrus soons calms down to a minty cool,cucumber fresh,clean green aroma.
Longevity and projection are both ok,but could be better,if they made an EDP version I would buy it.
Perfect for summer/humid weather.
Initially this reminded me of Fair Play by Nino Cerruti or Bowling Green by Geoffrey Beene,both sadly discontinued.
If you are a fan of either of these fragrances or Nicole Farhi Homme but want something more affordable,then this is a good buy.
The matching all over body wash is excellent,but the deo. spray is very weak & watery.
