    Default Almost Transparent Blue...

    Lime, yuzu, thyme flower, aldehyde, hinoki, cedar wood, musk


    Sampled this based on the notes. Little hint of wood....little hint of citrus....works every time. A touch of lime is always welcomed. Nothing earth shattering, just a really nice scent. I do wish it lasted a bit longer, around five hours or so. I think it is the aldehyde which may give a touch of "sparkle" for lack of a better term. I would rather that the clever descriptions someone writes about the scents would just stop. The urban landscapes or icy lunar whatever make it too much of a fantasy. I have my own imagination thank you. Believe price is $110 for 60 ML.

    Love this scent but doesn't get past the three hour mark for me which is a real shame

    Great stuff. It has, as you mentioned, a "sparkling," crystaline like clarity to it that's phenomenal.

    It's starting to get a little more recognition, which I think it deserves.

    Its projection is actually pretty good too, as I found out the other day when I put a little too much on.

    I thought it was a good citrus fragrance, one to consider if you're looking for a citrus niche...

    This one is excellent, and one I find myself reaching for regularly since I bought it. When I first tested it from a little vial, I liked it a lot but thought but it initially impressed me as more of a sport/aquatic scent.

    But since buying a bottle and getting a full spray of it, I have found that it is much more than a nice citrusy/warm weather/sporty fragrance. I have found the real stars of the show to be the hinoki and cedar notes.

    They are excellent; great light woody dry down. Very pleasing and versatile. One of the best citrus/woody fragrances I have, for sure, and one I'm glad I bought every time I wear it.

    The only place I found to buy this was Luckyscent, but noticed that it is now on backorder. I recommend sampling it for your spring/summer arsenal.

    I agree....I felt if I would have had a full spray or two instead of the small vial, the wood would be more prominent. I am glad to have this information while I consider it.
