    Lime, Basil & Mandarin by Jo Malone

    Top: lime, mandarin, bergamot
    Mid: basil, white thyme, lilac, iris
    Base: patchouli, vetiver, costus
    Lime, Basil & Mandarine by Jo Malone is excellent! I disagree with the negative reviews. This is a lovely scent. It has a very good lime-green citrus opening which persists. The herbal-basil notes are likewise exceptional. The thyme which can be overdone (see BaÔme for an example) is just right here. People complain about the basil notes, but LB&M is a pussycat. Try Basile Uomo or Virgilio for a heavy-duty hit of basil! The florals are muted and gently soften the citrus and herbs, rather than stand out in their own right. Up to now it is a light summery splash and is quite refreshing. Then it develops a delightful light grassy tone, due to the vetiver and a pinch of patchouli. This phase lasts for hours on my skin and I enjoy it. Donít be put off by the nay-sayers. If you like these ingredients, try it and see for yourself!
