Fendi Life Essence

The orange-bergamot citrus opening is pleasantly softened with coriander, and then a floral component, on me, mainly geranium with a bit of jasmine, softens it.  A pleasant start, but soon it collapses and it remains an extremely faint skin scent that, however, is just noticeable for up to a respectable seven hours.

  The sandal notes that is added later on is not convincing and too generic, and the slightly spicy cedar isn't either. The idea is goods: a citrus-wood combination with an interesting twist, but the execution is suboptimal as far as my skin reaction is concerned.  These notes are quite anaemic.   
A spring scent by design, but disappointing by its insipid second half and its poor performance mainly.  2.5/5
