Royal Eagle Silver by Stefano Ricci

Citrus meets vegetals in the opening blast: bergamot and touches of lemon mix with fennel and sage. Unusual but realised well.

The drydown includes lavender - quite a bit - with coriander added in. Towards the base a nonspecific woodsiness develops, together with a soft and quite restrained patchouli.

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

This interesting composition far warmer autumn days combines elements of a classic chypre - bergamot, sage - with other notes of good quality that are not frequently found together. The performance is not sensational, and the base is somewhat generic at times, but overall it is crafted well.  3/5.
