This is a wonderful, summer scent with all the attributes of a perfect eau de cologne. The top notes are zesty and clean, Jacaranda being one of them. I haven't smelled a Jacaranda bush, but hope to soon to see how the scent compares with it. These notes and are soon joined by the basil, white ginger and orange blossom - a combination I really love. Good lasting quality right down to the musky, peppery base. The bottle is very classy and refined in an understated way. The cap can be adapted to either a spray or a splash - a very clever inovation I haven't seen before. Not sure how pricey this is - I won mine in a Basenotes competition! I would guess that it's quite high end.
