A Simple yet Delightful Pear Blossom-Pomelo Scent
The new aromatic mist collection from Kiehls is a success to my nose. NASHI BLOSSOM & PINK GRAPEFRUIT offers a perfect blend of fresh pear blossoms and grapefruit. Imagine eating a freshly sliced grapefruit in the middle of a pear tree orchard. There you have it, in essence: NASHI BLOSSOM & PINK GRAPEFRUIT!

I do not believe that I can tease out either the ginger or the soy milk (????) in this composition, but it doesn't matter. The important point is that, whatever the notes are supposed to be, this is a fine, lightly floralized grapefruit scent. I recall discovering as a child that one should never eat grapefruit before a bowl of cereal, but only the other way around. Fortunately, no milk-citrus conflict arises at all in this context.

Very natural, simple, and not overly sweet, NASHI BLOSSOM & PINK GRAPEFRUIT has only one flaw: poor longevity. According to the box, musk is also a note, but the solution is dilute enough that the lighter citrus and floral notes do not really bind to the musk sufficiently to keep the scent alive for more than a couple of hours.

Truth in advertising has prevailed here, however, for right on the box are printed the words: Aromatic Mist. No one should be surprised, then, by the evanescent quality of this creation, and some will be deterred from buying it for that reason. I'd like to point out that the longevity rivals some of the L'Artisan Parfumeur edts, which I realize is faint praise, but the point is that the value of this seemingly expensive "body spray" (= mist) is not as bad as it might to some at first glance seem.

I mainly wear these creations as "palate cleansers", so to speak, between other perfumes or else because I'm looking for something specifically light and natural smelling. It would be wonderful if Kiehls got the memo and released these scents at eau de parfum concentration.

The old-fashioned apothecary bottles are attractive to me. They remind me of retro-toasters and blenders. Why not perfume bottles, too?
