    Fraîche Badiane by Maître Parfumeur et Gantier

    There's a blurry line between negative and neutral, and there's a blurry line between neutral and positive, but there is a thin line between positive and negative, and this sprints towards that line, trips, and breaks it's ass. Fraîche Badiane has, at its core, a really rough, masculine. herbal smell that could very well be patchouli but I'm not that sure to be honest. This is some outdoorsy stuff that will throw hadukens at everyone in the room if you overspray. It's just as overbearing as any mother-in-law. There's also some nice citrus and anise on top, but they do not conceal the beast at all.

    The truth is, it is a pretty good smell, and it's never irritating or unnatural-smelling, but damn if it just doesn't work when worn.
