Earl Grey & Cucumber


The opening phase really has no tea in it. It is a fresh-ish bergamot start, but after a while I get a pleasant cucumber impression, bring back the experience of cucumber sandwiches. At times a slightly green impression is present that could be regarded as a very subtle rendering of some aspects of a very weakly brewed and somewhat generic rendering if a black tea note, but it is not a very convincing one, unlike the nice cucumber impression

The second stage is a somewhat sweet vanilla-honey note that again is not bad, but very much in the generic side, even somewhat bland.

I get soft sillage, limited projection and four hours of longevity on my skin.

A pleasant spring creation, not bad and designed for layering but not convincing even with this adjusted standard of expectation as to the quality of this scent. 2.75/5
