    Monsieur Balmain (new) by Pierre Balmain

    This is an amazingly zesty fizzing verbena bomb!

    If you like your citrus sharp and tart, this is for you. I found it had fairly good longevity for a citrus scent, at such an inexpensive price, you can afford to reapply every couple of hours anyway.

    Tiny let-down...the packaging is fairly cheap looking, especially compared to the vintage. No biggie!

    * Idiotically I missed the massive ginger note in this. It wasn't until I was grating some that my brain switched on and I thought "Monsieur Balmain!" The ginger in this is as big as the verbena. Wonderful!
