A Feminine Orange Blossom
I agree with another reviewer (at another site) that Keiko Mecheri TARIFA smells very familiar. I, too, cannot put my finger on which perfume(s) this is reminding me of, especially in the opening. Perhaps something by The Pink Room? Or am I thinking of Linari ELEGANZA LUMINOSA? Not sure. In any case, this creation opens with a nice blend of smooth resinousness with spices and of course some greenish citrus.

I do not think that TARIFA is distinctive or appealing enough to warrant a full bottle for myself, but I'm sure that some people will fall head over heels for this sort of perfume. To my nose, TARIFA is very feminine and not at all like a typical citrus cologne. I'd describe the overall effect as similar to Vivienne Westwood perfumes. It's definitely more of a "boudoir"-type scent.

In fact, the only member of this limited edition series which I really found to be a citrus cologne was LES NUITS D'IZU. They are good perfumes though. It will all come down to personal taste, in the end, so these should all be tested before purchasing. This particular composition has a fairly dominant orange blossom scent in the drydown, which will be appealing to some but not to others...
