    I was hoping for a grand slam, and instead got a base hit. Not bad, but I expected more. Goes on smooth, but on me it rapidly developed a harsh synthetic quality reminiscent of public bathroom deodorizer. Not quite my cup of neroli, I much prefer the classic standards in this category, even though frequent reapplication may be necessary.

    Agreed... the longevity comes at a price. There are a lot of better, more affordable frags in this category.

    I quite like my sample so far - it reminds me of 4711 which I also like. It's not love though.

    Has anyone else tried the bath products as I'm interested in the body scrub, soap, shower gel and moisturiser. Harrods do the entire collection as a gift set including an atomiser, the only problem is you get a 50ml and 250ml fragrance which puts the price right up - I wish you could get the set without the 250ml.

    I have the Body Moisturizer and love it. It's a thick, creamy moisturizer that is good on any clean skin. It is unmistakably fragranced with NP and lasts quite a long time.

    For some reason in the States it's becoming harder to get a hold of -- I had my rep at Neiman Marcus order me a backup moisturizer from another store because I couldn't readily find it anywhere else, even from Nordstrom or NM Online. I hope it's not being modified or discontinued.

    You won't be disappointed with it.

    Wearing this today, is it supposed to be a very close to the skin fragrance? I've had it on for four hours or so and since about two hours after putting it on, I can only smell it by sniffing right up to my arm.
    Splits!

    I've noticed that if I've put too much on, my nose quickly tires of it and I can't smell it much after a couple of hours. I usually apply no more than 2 sprays of this particular fragrance - once on the inner arm and once toward the chest. I get good longevity from it this way. If you apply it similar to an Eau de Cologne you can easily... overindulge.

    It's also possible you are anosmatic to some of the dry down notes. Either way, enjoy it now as I believe NP is at its best in the summertime.

    This is a global production issue, not just in the United States. At supplier level all warehouses are sold out globally so whatever stock counters do have is currently all there is. Here in Australia we have had many of the body products sold out since May, and a waiting list in place since then, and have been told not to expect new stock until around mid August.

    Although Ford's NP is nice initially, it does lose its neroli orange zest and becomes soapy/musky later, which isn't a bad thing for all noses. Atelier Cologne Absolue Grand Neroli is a true, clean, pure neroli that keeps its fresh scent structure. I love it! The bar soap is amazing in scent and quality and is $15 for a LARGE bar that doesn't melt. I'm hooked.
