Super-refreshing Aromatic Cologne
Lots of reviewers have commented on the gin and tonic scent of JUNIPER SLING, but of course what they're really saying is that the scent of gin derives from juniper, which is the focal note, logically enough, of JUNIPER SLING. The little juniper berry appears to have two and only two well-known uses: one to produce gin; the other to cook sauerbraten. For many people these are the sole encounters with this unique-smelling berry. It would be interesting to find out how the Germans feel about this cologne, since it might have a "familiarity breeds contempt" effect upon them.

I have always thought that gin and tonics smell a bit like hairspray or, I should say, my memory of my mother's hairspray when I was growing up, as I have not smelled that product in quite a while now. So it makes sense that the opening of JUNIPER SLING should remind me, too, a bit of hairspray. I hasten to clarify, however, that in this case the comparison is a compliment, as I rather like the quirky scent of juniper.

What I like about JUNIPER SLING is that, although it is a somewhat standard cologne, the usual suspects are not the dominant players, so this creation ends up smelling completely different from all of the other colognes. The quality of materials is very good, and the composition is refreshing and invigorating, with a somewhat energizing aromatherapeutic effect.

It would be easy to overdose on this fragrance because of the dominant juniper note, but as a change from the usual cologne routine, JUNIPER SLING offers a zing of eccentricity. Yes, there is vetiver and citrus and a bit of spice, but really the juniper is the star of the show. There's a real paradox here: good old boy conservatism conjoined with wacky nonconformism.

I like JUNIPER SLING and am very happy that ElenaLondon, the British Perfume Ambassador to the United States, sent me this sample. No one has done more for British-U.S. relations than she has! (-;

Big gin & tonic vibe from the prominent juniper note. Clean, aromatic, spicy and refreshing but also close to the skin and short lived.+2
