Equinox Bloom by Penhaligon’s

A herbal-floral citrus opening greets me: bitter and acidic lemon, a slightly darker violet and a pleasant orange blossom develop sooner after the first blast.  

The later drydown emphasises the floral component even stronger, with frangipani and jasmine most evident.  A milky-creamy touch comes and goes.  Combined with this is an impression of a slightly smoky black tea, which develop gradually but is strongest in the heart notes 

The base is a bit sweeter, but just a bit, and a salty and slightly acerbic note balances out the sugary sweetness well. 

I get moderate sillage, very good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.  

A very interesting and quite original and complex spring composition that develops very interestingly.  Not all ingredients are of great quality, but the result is quite enticing.  3.25/5
