The opening is gorgeous: a convincingly zestful lime&lemon blast that is fine and elegant in nature, and is soon enhanced by a stunning underlying classic petit
grain. Later on a well-balanced neroli takes over and gradually becomes the dominant force in the fragrance. I do not get a separate additional base note phase in this one.
This is a delicious, refined and elegant summer citrus-neroli scent. With these types of lime-citrus composition no-one can expect a great performance due to the
inherently short-lived nature of natural citrus oils notes, but I am pleasantly surprised here: whilst sillage is only soft and projection quite all right only, the initial impression lasts two
hours on me, with the later neroli-centred phase gradually wanes over another four: this gives an overall longevity of six hours, which is splendid for a natural lime-based composition in my skin
- albeit the last two hours being very close to my skin.
The ingredients are of a very high quality and blended very well, and although very simple and traditional in its components it is extremely well executed. A
delightful summer joy. Released in 1963; discontinued. 4/5
