Reviews of Eau du Sud

Rural southern France. The scent of salty, sun-kissed skin and citrus and herbs floating on the breeze. Nice.

very similar imo to acqua di parma pura.
i really enjoyed the initial citrus freshness and soda water fizziness but unfortunately it fades quickly, leading to a green woody peppery long lasting dry down.

This one is odd, to my nose. The citrus is bright. But, some note of basil or mint muddles the citrus, making it too sour and bitter. It is an almost chemical cleanser smell. Burned black peppercorns. This fragrance is aromatic in a manly way, for sure.

Lemon Verbena begins to soften the blow of all the bitterness. It relaxes. Sharp vetiver appears. All the oddness goes away enough for it to become wearable. Vetiver cranks up louder - oakmoss lumbers in.

Dirty, Dirty Pour Monsieur. This scents vaguely of, day old scalp, underneath a bouquet of Citrus brightness anchored in an Oakmoss Savon.
Pour Monsieur is for the Formal. This is for the licentious after Party.

Future Jason:

As per usual, you are cribbing from the Basenotes scent pyramid to describe what you smell, because your nose is an idiot.

There is mint, and there is citrus, for sure. Better than Royal Water, which you also sampled recently. In the sense that this doesn't totally smell like a cleaning product.

You probably need to stop wearing citrus for awhile. Because you're tempted to write: "This achieves new heights of boring. This is a scent to wear when phoning grandparents. When reviewing newspaper classifieds. Buying eyeglasses."

You can tell this is nice. You'd just rather wear anything else.

Moving on.
