A Bracing Green-Citrus, Green-Herbal Cologne
Gandini 1896 LIME E BASILICO is a brisk green cologne in the spirit of Bond no 9 CENTRAL PARK. I was reminded immediately of the latter upon spritzing this on because of the basil and citrus combination. There are different florals in the two compositions, but the herbs (basil and thyme) and the citrus (lime, mandarin and bergamot) loom so very large that the florals pale in comparison. According to my tester bottle, the flowers of this cologne are orris and lily.

Crisp, clean, green without being sharp or mean, and completely natural smelling, LIME E BASILICO is a refreshing warm weather cologne with a real wake-up effect. The patchouli and the vetiver in the drydown give this creation some depth and the florals soften the green a bit. This is a bracing cologne, but a very natural smelling one, and it's a pleasure to wear.

Although this cologne (really an edt...) is probably more likely to appeal to guys than to gals, I happen to like it a lot.
