    This one convinced me that gourmand and otherwise food/drink scents are not for me. I won't review it because I don't understand it, so I don't want to pan it, but the entire Frapin line has helped me to decide to stick to classic scents.

    I didn't care for it either.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I kind of like it, but not enough for a bottle. Smells unique, just not good enough to wear, with so many other scents in my wardrobe.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    I think the OP's descriptor is pretty much on the mark as I thought it smelled like tropical rum punch early over a powdery suede late. Not a bad scent, but nothing distinguishes it from thousands of others... pass.

    I really like this stuff. Not massively keen on the Mojito opening but the dry down is superb in my view.
