Chestnut and I sampled Gringo in November, and I'm copying those comments forward to this thread.
Persona, vetyver, frankincense, neroli accord.Originally Posted by Quarry
The sight of green juice, as this is, will always get my attention, generally preferring green fragrances as I do. I was somewhat hopeful upon application, owing to the vetiver and was soon overtaken by a memory I'd mentioned months ago here when sampling Tcharas--standing near the chlorine-treated pool at a Disney resort in Florida. With Tcharas, I'd convinced myself that there were only a few points of parallel, but now I must admit I'm getting nearly a true chlorine effect. Tcharas, another Profumo fragrance, includes neroli, Damascene rose, and civet, and I'm guessing it's the neroli that's misleading me. It's fascinating that I find myself standing twixt the outdoor pool and my motel room, yards from each, surrounded by palms and other tropical foliage, it's distinctly morning and quiet, and I can almost smell damp towels from the previous night's swimmers. I'll credit the vetiver for the foliage. Hours into wearing Persona, the pool-like odor fades, and I sense some nasal heat. It's as warm as cinnamon as or ginger (although smelling like neither of those scents, just the same degree of heat).
