    Default NEW: Kerosene - Summer Of 84!

    From NST:







    Indie line Kerosene has launched Summer of 84, a new limited edition unisex fragrance.
    It was the year the Detroit Tigers won the World Series; a time when I was young.

    The summer air smelled as new and clean as grapefruit pop sunk with ice cubes, fizzed in warm sun.

    Popsicle wrappers and fresh cut melons half-eaten on the picnic table.



    It was the Summer of '84.

    The notes include grapefruit, lemon, bergamot, melon, white flowers, fresh water and musk.



    Kerosene Summer of 84 is available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum, $140, and will be sold until Labor Day.

    I love the concept of this but unfortunately the notes don't appeal at all.

    Thanks for sharing, hednic.

    That year holds great memories for me, but l suspect the perfume won't be as memorable.

    Hi everyone, I had a chance to wear this twice over the weekend and wanted to share my thoughts.

    As a starting point, and some background to give this context, this is my first Kerosene fragrance. I purchased it blindly because I enjoy summer scents, wanted to add something from this House to my collection and, well, I am a sucker for limited editions. That being said I had few expectations for this fragrance and the notes themselves didn't compel me to buy.

    I first tested it Saturday with two sprays. One word- grapefruit. The opening is a very prominent grapefruit scent that smells, to my nose, very realistic. I enjoyed the grapefruit opening and could smell some other fruits but nothing specific. About five minutes in I actually started hoping the grapefruit would subside and other notes would begin to become more identifiable. Thankfully the notes do change somewhat and the scent begins to smell like grapefruit, lemon and light flowers. Still, my initial impression on Day 1 was too much grapefruit.

    Day 2 was better. I sprayed three times and got pretty much the same experience as the day before but enjoyed it more. For whatever reason the grapefruit didn't hit me as hard. I'm not sure exactly how much wear I got out of it but I would suggest sillage is moderate and longevity is average.

    Overall a pretty good blind buy for me. I'll wear this on lazy weekends. However, I would suggest sampling if possible. I suspect some will be turned off by the prominent grapefruit note.
