Beware of the fragrance balm
I have had Geranium Bourbon on my wishlist for some time since sampling. I loved it then, and I hoped to acquire a bottle at some point. When I came across a 5g fragrance balm, I decided that was my entry into acquiring the scent. The joy of getting that purchase immediately turned into regret.

The balm itself carries an overwhelming petrochemical smell. The item says it does not contain petrochemicals. Perhaps that is true, but that is not what it smells like. It's possible that the balm's plastic packaging is the problem, or the reaction of the balm with the package. Nevertheless, the plastic packaging is a problem anyway, as it is poorly manufactured and articulated, with rough edges at the cap and thread. Who wants to run their fingers over that?

Completely unwearable and unusable. I simply can't recommend.

Invigorating, Aromatic Geranium
Every time I wear Miller Harris GERANIUM BOURBON, I remark that it leans toward the masculine end of the scent spectrum. It is somewhat bitter and quite aromatic, a bit woody, and not at all sweet. Often geranium is mixed with rose and sometimes red fruits in more feminine perfumes such as Annick Goutal QUEL AMOUR! Here, the geranium is at least unisex if not masculine, and I am bit surprised that it is marketed to women but not men. Probably the pepper and the patchouli are conspiring to make this seem slightly masculine. This is definitely not a "flowers and candy" perfume.

The composition strikes a balance between refreshing aromaticity and lush florality. It's quite complex and smells completely natural with a greenish, somewhat herbal edge. Vanilla and violet are listed among the notes, but to me GERANIUM BOURBON is a huge pile of freshly cut bright red geranium flowers. I definitely recommend this splendid creation to both guys and gals for testing, as it offers a unique blend and the superlative quality typical of the house of Miller Harris.
