Heeley Menthe Fraiche
Heeley Sel Marin
Heeley St. Clements
Well my samples arrived and I have tested them. All smell great, but suffer from poor projection and longevity, they sit politely on the body. I described it elsewhere as a
'fragrance snack" not meant to last all day...(think Penhaligon's)
Cardinal: Great frankincense with pepper, a great incense but very linear.
Sel Marin: One of the best ocean/nautical/beach scents. Opens with a blast of iodine/salt, and brings in sea grass without smelling like bathroom deodorizer spray. Probably the most complex of the ones I tried.
Ophelia: definitely a woman's scent, not even unisex...But it is one of the best tuberose and jasmine that I have ever smelled. I gave the sample to my wife who loved it. Better projection than St. Clements or Cardinal
St. Clements: Oranges and lemons for sure. There is a little bit of artifical citrus there but it strangely adds to the complexity. Lays politely on the skin, doesn't last too long, but longer than I thought it would given it is citrus.
Menthe Fraiche: Mint without smelling like toothpaste or mouthwash. Think mint tea. If you don't want to smell like mint, don't worry, it doesn't last long enough to wear out it's welcome.- - - Updated - - -
