Royal Eagle Sport by Stefano Ricci

An orangey opening with an aroma of a ripe grapefruit gives the opening a fresh and bright character. This is enriched by a jasmine note; a floral popular in the creations of this Florentine House.

The base adds a green tea note, with a herbal undertone - think sage and basil. This dominates until the base adds a rather nonspecific woodsy impression, which is combined with a coating of white musks.

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

A pleasant spring composition with nice opening and heart notes, although not exactly breathtakingly creative. The middle stage, and the base especially, does not do it a favour with its synthetic and generic character. Overall it remains quite middle-of-the-road, abeit quite agreeably so.   2.75/5.
