Reviews of Shooting Stars: Oroville

A citrus aromatic thatís almost entirely devoid of character. All the usual players are present: lemon verbena, neroli, sage, but itís all sanitized and primped so that none of the bite of the standard EdC genre remains. Thereís just so little to say about this perfume: citrus, white florals, slightly soapy, mildly herbal. Itís well done from top to bottom, but it smells like something youíd expect to find in the locker room of a private country club or something ó one for the sweater-over-the-shoulders crowd. It holds up well, though, even after the top notes have vacated the scene. As pristine and sparkly as a freshly scrubbed toilet.

If you like ADP Essenza, you'll love this one. Very similar.

I'll probably have to resign to the fact that Xerjoff is not my favorite house (euphemistically). Most of their fragrances are like bad songs played by an incredibly skilful band. The musicians' ability is stunning but the songs don't move you.

Oroville makes no exceptions. The clary sage/tobacco made me initially think about something challenging, dirty and very masculine but all I got was a powdery vanilla/tobacco mix, leaden by an harsh white floral presence during the opening and the middle phase. In the drydown things get a little better bot nowhere close matching my taste. Too polished, to mannered, too affected.
