Citrash...
Citrine, well. Here’s what I get here: synthetic, slightly “ammonia-flavoured” citrus, a clean ginger note, resinous-balsamic hints on a cedramber note (a sort of “pencil sharpener” note, just a tad warmer and sweeter), a smell of artificial, polished incense with a subtle salty aftertaste, something slightly musky on the very base together with a light yet dark and vaguely “roasted” note, which I guess it may be a drier and darker wood. Overall a discreet yet heavily synthetic scent, in a quite uncreative way for me (just the “not-enough-budget” kind of synthetic smell). In my non-educated opinion - so take it with a grain of salt - Citrine smells just... I won’t say “pointless”, but surely a bit clumsy. I find it unpleasant to wear, almost a scrubber at some point, and I find this kind of annoying because it’s not some “creative” kind of unpleasant, rather just a juxtaposition of notes which just don’t create anything interesting to me (anything particularly harmonic, or creatively “non-harmonic”). More clearly: it’s basically a sort of citrus-woody scent with a resinous feel and some darker shades, something that if it wasn’t for the “niche” label, could be easily mistaken for a whatever mediocre discounted designer scent – just reshuffled a bit to look more “creative” (but actually ending up smelling more like a designer gone wrong). Highly negligible for me.

4,5-5/10
