The opening is strong and almost too sharp and shares, as one perceptive reviewer has commented, some notes with that fine scent Bowling Green. But the true wonder of Nicolai's New York is in its development. We tend to think of citrus as clean, sharp, bracing. But New York underwrites this with warm, sweet,seductive, sophisticated, mysterious tones that are quite ravishing in their way. In spite of partial affinities with Bowling Green, this is fairly unique and a bit of a wonder. A sort of 'citrus-oriental'? Very layered, suave and luscious.
