XIX March fragrance notes

Reviews of XIX March

freshly cut grass that had some mint plants growing in it...a faint effect of citrus...well blended into accords vs. notes and notes float around adding little touches here and there...a refreshing scent that smells like it would be a perfect fragrance for a warm summer friendly also, IMHO...just a little touch of warm spiciness...settles down to a slightly musky wood this house and like this enough to get a decent sized decant...just a touch of flower before it comes down to the finish...

A well made fragrance, but not for me. There is much greenery in this bottle. Grass, weeds, vetiver, with a bit of sharpness at top...perhaps from the orange and mint combination.

A green that is close to nature and yet oozes sophistication – one does not come across that often. Often, realistic greens go for profusion, a kind of bramble and grass sprawl, or piercing effects such as conifers accented with clouds of incense that turn chemical over time.
But here we have civilized garden greens – including a lovely fresh mint (cleverly paired with lavender) that seems still dew-laden chirping from the foliage. The freshness is expertly handled – with an opening salvo of citrus and then layers of gentle soapiness from which peek glimpses of light spice and an almost juicy vetiver (if that isn’t too contradictory). Ultimately the vetiver will become the central focus as the greens sadly begin to lose their definition after an hour or so and buffing musks become more prominent.
Energizing as a spring day, XIX March is so not about its notes, but of the overall impression of exploring a verdant, beautifully put together garden, wearing something effortlessly graceful.
It may be the lathered-up vetiver that wins out, but it’s the green start that is truly memorable.

On my skin this is a perfume that develops from light to heavier over time. It opens with a bright minty orange notes that combines with a second prong of notes encompassing a herbal-vegetal mix. Fruit and Veg - how healthy. Soon a spicy cinnamon component arises, whiffs of clove emerge, and later in the drydown traditional floral elements are evident, mainly jasmine and lavender. Overall an unusal mix, like wandering trough a succession of citrus groves, herb gardens and flower fields. Nice.

The base is, alas, less interesting and more pedestrian: woodsy and musky components, the usual culprits. The base is the weak point of this composition.

I get moderate sillage, adequate projection and six hours of longevity. Overall 2.5/5.

This is vegetable shop in the bottle! seriously!
The opening is a very green vegetable kind of smell with fresh feeling. it's like walking inside of a fresh vegetable shop that you can smell the aroma of green and fresh vegetables like dill and parsley in the air!

As time passes and in the base I'm getting a semi sweet musky scent with that fresh feeling but now much less vegetabley!
Smell nice though, specially at the beginning but personally I don't want to smell like a vegetable farm!
It was worth trying but definitely not something to buy and wear (at least for me!)
Projection is above average and longevity is around 6-7 hours.

The opening of XIX March is lively, greenish-woody-floral, slightly creamy thanks to sandalwood and white flowers (among which jasmine above all), with fresh and zesty head notes of citrus and neroli. The green accord is well played around a refreshing minty note, one of the nicest I've ever encountered so far: it's crunchy, sour, balsamic, leafy and compelling - no "Colgate effect", in short. XIX March is one of those "botanical" scents rich in vibrant notes smelling of leaves, branches and wood trunks, rich of "spring" nuances and graceful colours. Yet it's not conventional, as it bears an unusual bold spicy-herbal accord with nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, and a range of "culinary" aromatic herbs. A proper Mediterranean perfume indeed. The interplay between floral notes and woods is clever and nice, as it's quite evocative of flowers hiding among trees, so you smell more the "echo" of flowers than the "inner" of them (as in many other floral scents). It's like sitting in a house garden in the countryside waiting for lunch, the smell and whiffs of trees and flowers mix with spices and herbs from the kitchen. The vetiver note emerges after a while, quickly becoming the prominent character of the drydown. The bad side of this scent is that despite being an "extrait de parfum", its longevity is - to me, unacceptably - short and light, nothing more than a normal EDT. Apart from this, a nice scent from a respectable brand.
