This fragrance opens with a blast of lemon enhanced by other citrus notes. The resulting accord is pleasantly tart with a sparkly sweetish undertone. At first the scent is fresh and zesty, but it eventually becomes sweeter and juicier as it progresses. The last stages of the fragrance are herbal-woodsy, since basil joins the citrus notes from the mid-development onwards. I feel Citron Citron is in the vein of Lemon Sorbet, but is a far superior offering.
