If I hadn’t worn Calvin Klein Eternity, if I didn't know the Escentric Molecules line, if I didn’t know Iso-E Super as a single note, if I didn’t know neroli as a single note (and love it in Patricia de Nicolai’s Cologne Sologne), if I didn’t find Lalique Encre Noir a more interesting interpretation of this class of modern scents that owe a greater kinship to the chemistry of mimeograph machines than traditional perfume oils, and if I weren’t a woman, then maybe I’d be more attracted to gs03. But since none of these “ifs” apply, I don’t care much for this new product which I suspect will be forgotten in the annals of fragrance history.
