Simply a marvellously sparkling green/citrusy concoction (so affordable and inexpensive) with a realistic blend of mandarine/orange, orangy flowes, minty aromatic herbs (probably mint, basil plus citrus bitter peels) and woods with hints of ambergris. Old school in its timeless recipe. The dry down is a bit less interesting and smoother than the fizzy/boise compelling opening. Frankly one of the most dignified citrusy aromatic aromas i've passed across. Decent projection but unfortunately faint longevity (like an eau de cologne) on my skin.

A gentle citrus opening with a green herbaceous note that merges into a woody drydown with, on me, a mild but distinct amber note. Not sweet, restrained with little silage or projection. The poor longevity of one hour is excusable, given that the box says " Eau fraîche parfumée." A kind of sub-Eau-de-Cologne perfumed water; so it just made a positive review. Good for what it purports to be.
I discovered this in a hotel room when I used the body lotion and kept getting a waft of something lovely. It dries down really well and has a beautiful warm sophisticated citrusy smell . There is something else there which I'm guessing must be the pallassander wood. I have layered this with Bois des Iles and they go very well together. A lovely lovely fragrance.
What a marvelous citrus-green scent! Lovely orangey notes with herbs. The basil is well done, suggesting mint and anise. The scent is refreshing, clean, and pleasing to wear. Nice bit of wood in the dry-down.
