    Greene Street by Etro

    Ah Ė suddenly Iím half my current weight, 20 years younger, not a grey hair in sight, and striding through a buzzing neighbourhood wearing an open-necked, crisp white linen shirt. Any perfume that makes that fantasy pop up is doing something right.
    Greene Street has a sense of dynamism about it which I suspect comes from a well-judged balance between fresh tones (some of them green) and the depth charge of spices. Add to the mix powdery and soapy facets, and Iím probably making this sound like a real no-no. But the end result is salubrious with a capital S, enough to put a spring in my step and ready to take on the day. Its volume is also well-judged, present but not overwhelming.
    Iím not making any claims that Greene Street is wildly original; Iím sure better educated noses will identify a dozen fresh spicy Ďmasculinesí which it reminds them of. It just does well what it does.
