Autumn Blues
Today someone looked at me pale and tousled from the mirror.
The nose red - like the leader reindeer Rudolph Rotnase - from Santa Claus.
Yes - is it christmas soon again?
Grumpy, I'm looking for my cardigan because I'm freezing.

But a bright refreshing - not cool - fragrance emerges from the jacket.
What was that beautiful thing ?
Oh yes - I had treated myself to a Pampelune sniffer at Douglas.
And this small dose turned the grey autumn day into a golden one.
The aromatic fruit notes are slightly astringent thanks to the currant - and clear thanks to neroli.
The vanilla hovers sweetly over it - and to my delight I discover some rose blossoms in my garden.

The autumn day can be a beautiful one after all - because Pampelune has opened my eyes.

...sow good ???? A fresh, new love...
If you smell like grapefruit ,

Do you come across eight years younger than you are..
Well, after the saying I had to drink this heavenly, fresh, fragrant water ...you can't have it! :-))

It's so delicious, grapefruit gourmand,
after a spray burst like a shower,
with the wonderful fruit!

Forget the almost 40 degrees heat... Breathe in, breathe in, the ethereal, invigorating, sparkling
Fragrance
A little bit of vanilla ,rounds off this summer scent
wonderful ab!
Dreamlike the experience, a fresh, new
Love...

Fresh, cheerful, fruity and tart and in the hot summer simply brilliant!
I love this fresh, yet completely uncomplicated and lively summer scent, which constantly radiates good humour and makes even those who don't like scents smile!
For a summer scent, it keeps very well on the skin after I find it, although it is also no big deal to spray a few times. This "little fruit" is guaranteed not to get on anybody's "nose"!

Grapefruit In A Bottle
Pamplelune opens with a energizing grapefruit scent. I wouldn't say it smells like real real grapefruit but it's well elaborated IMO. The acedity, the sweetness and the bitterness are perfectly balanced to create a sparkling and pleasant citrus scent. After about 2 or 3 hours, grapefruit hands the relay off to an aromic base of petitgrain, decorated by a hint of sweet vanilla and neroli, and it stays close to skin for another 2 or 3 hours.

Pamplelune is relatively simple IMO, but efficient. A refreshing fragrance for summer outdoor activities. I'd recommend to someone who's desperately looking for a natural citrus dominant fragrance.

The best grapefruit fragrance ever!
For once Luca Turin finally gets it right! When it comes to the smell of Grapefruit, Pamplelune is at the top of the league. This fragrance has the most authentic grapefruit note I have ever encountered. This isn't a shampoo or sweet candy type of grapefruit. This is the whole, ripe, juicy fruit itself... the bright, bitter skin, the ripe pink flesh, the tangy taste, the acidic, almost sulphur-like aroma. It's so raw and authentic, and so real... that I think this is what turns some people off when they smell it for the first time.

Pamplelune (the name is composed of the French words for grapefruit "pamplemousse" and moon "lune") opens up with an incredibly bright citric, tangy, acidic and authentic grapefruit note that is given body by some herbs and green notes (neroli, petitgrain, and cassis). It is the Cassis or blackcurrant leaf which gives this fragrance the impression of the "cat urine" note, and this could equally be a combination of this note with the acidic grapefruit and the patchouli in the base. Personally I don't get this impression, to me it's an incredibly authentic grapefruit aroma which lasts for the whole length of the fragrance.

Pamplelune eventually dries down to a warm, sweet, patchouli-vanilla combination... it makes such a soft landing and impression on your skin after a few hours. Bright, fresh, zesty grapefruit in the beginning, then changing to a warmer, sweet vanilla by the end.

Needless to say, I really love this fragrance. just spraying it in any weather gives me a boost (like vitamin c)! I guarantee that it will brighten up your day and make you feel so fresh, and the best thing is, it is so well made that this authentic grapefruit lasts all day, turning into vanilla by the end. Please, ignore the association with cat urine etc. Because if you have ever opened a real, fresh, juicy grapefruit, complete with the fresh tang of the pink fruit and the acid of the juice, this is almost exactly what it smells like to me.

Try it in summer, spring, and even in cold weather! It can cheer you up! This one makes me so happy, I sometimes even call it "sunshine in a bottle"!

Delicious choice for summer
It was a hot, hot day in Système-D-land, and I had a new mini of Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune at hand, so of course it was the day to try it.

I started my morning with fresh squeezed grapefruit. There was a tinge of lemon there, too. But this grapefruit had depth. I experienced both the rind and the tart flesh.

The grapefruit lasted into the heart of the fragrance, and combined with the petit grain, Pamplelune took on a lush and beautiful greenness.

And later, when the base notes came, a revelation! Do you know toronja rellena, the Costa Rican dessert? It is grapefruit and dulce de leche, and it is deliciously sweet. Well, Pamplelune became toronja rellena in a wooden bowl. Thank goodness it was lunchtime by then!

In short, Pamplelune is a delicious choice, especially for a hot summer day.

I usually spray it in the hottest days: its fresh and bitter notes are very energizing. Recommended !
