Floral patchouli
Yesterday I got mostly patchouli softened by the lilac, and a pinch of lime. In the base notes the patchouli recedes and perhaps the vanilla makes the whole composition powdery, but I can not smell it on its own. This might be due to the weather though LONDON seems to be perfectly fit for summer as well.
The name however - does not remind me of London at all, except if you hang around in one of the many parks in spring.

BTW my tester bottle has the following notes written on it:
Top Notes: Neroli, Lime, Lilac leaves
Heart Notes: Heliotrope, Seringa, Jasmine
Base Notes: Patchouli, Vanilla, Amber

London deserves more...
The "Anglophiles" and those who adore LONDON (I'm one of them) might be tempted into buying this scent, but, alas, "London" in a bottle is nothing special. It points into the direction of "Shalimar light", but is not as good as the Guerlain. I think "London" is a wearable, pleasant light oriental with a powdery touch, yet it lacks originality. Nevertheless I like the flacon, the name and the design.

Incredibly unusual ... if only higher quality, it would be DA BOMB!
Paul Smith LONDON is such an under-rated and under-appreciated fragrance. It is definitely a powder bomb, so powder-phobs be aware. But for me, for someone who loves powdery fragrances, but not bright soapy aldehydes, this is just right.

LONDON opens with citrus, then morphs into a green powdery vanilla heart. The base is ambery and woody, although the powder and vanilla last & last on me. Most definitely LONDON is not a fragrance for everyone. But for me, it's the fragrance that turned me into a perfume junky. And that's because it hits all my buttons - slighty sweet, slightly dark, a tad green, huge powdery, lots of vanilla, not too floral, quite unusual.

I recently tried this on side by side with a By Kilian and decided that with a few tweaks London could be good enough to be in that range -- both in terms of quality and in terms of uniqueness.

Deserves to be better known. Best on Fall nights and Winter days ... it's just that kind of fragrance. Still can be found at excellent prices, although it seems to be disappearing from online discounters. The lotion is excellent.
