Soft Orange Blossom Fragrance - with good longevity!
This beautiful fragrance opens softly with mandarin and bergamot lightly spiced with cardamom and basil. The heart brings orange blossom and neroli, given a fresh 'greeness' with lily of the valley, and dries down to a mossy cedar base with a hint of vetiver. Musk and violet are also listed in the base notes, but my nose doesn't detect them. The orange blossom and neroli are the main players in this one, it reminds me a little of Jo Malone's Orange Blossom minus the lilac, but this has more depth to it. It also has very good longevity for an EDT of this type, 8 hours on me. Sillage is soft, and stays close to the skin. Would be a good addition to any orange blossom/neroli fan's collection - of the 20+ neroli and/or orange blossom perfumes I own, this has become my top favorite!
