    Le Pamplemousse by Miller Harris

    I like it.
    It starts with an excellent yellow (tart) grapefruit note -- this is really well done and has excellent longevity for a citrus note. The scent opens up and adds rhubarb, another tangy-bitter note. The scent here is very dry and bracing.
    As the scent develops further, it picks up some gentle herbal and moss notes. Basically, it becomes a citrus variation on the excellent MH Petitgrain, substituting grapefruit for orange blossom. Some grassy vetiver appears.
    The drydown is pleasant and mossy.
    If you like Hermes' Eau D'Orange Verte, give this a try.
    The fragrance notes from the company are slightly different from those in the BN directory.
    Top: bitter grapefruit, rhubarb, green melon
    Mid: Moroccan orange flowers, clary sage, rosemary
    Base: vetiver, tree moss, Moroccan cedar
