Easy does it
The combination of fruit and blossom aromas, so incredibly inflationary and vehemently praised as supposedly archetypal and feminine, has not only established itself as a genre in the perfume world in the "ladies mainstream", has not only become a blueprint, but it almost seems as if the creative directors of the big houses considered it absolutely indispensable in a perfume.
An abstract olfactory idea has been consolidated for fruits and flowers alike, which has cut out all bitter, bitter, sultry, acidic aspects from nature and leaves behind a smooth, unresisting complacency Combined with an arbitrary degree of sweetness, there are a few adjusting screws that are turned, very carefully though, to produce small variations of the same idea over and over again, which thus becomes flatter and more faceless overall.

Fleur d'Osmanthus now lives in the same genre and doesn't even boldly turn one of the screws to free himself and still succeeds much better.
There is a tangy, almost effervescent prelude, which does not cry and does not use violence.
There are fruits and flowers, only little sweetness, but a slight acidity. Stimulated rippling.
Afterwards one withdraws quickly again and remains on a pleasantly dimmed level with rather green vegetable speckles until the imperceptible fade out. No big fuss, no ambitions. So wonderful.

Then you have a look at what it should cost and maybe you should avoid asking yourself too many questions about this business.

A scent with character
I bought and wore this fragrance about 6 years ago and I don't forget the good sillage and the well balanced acchord where the osmanthus was the main actor.
I recently tested it again and I confirm that It 's a vibrant scent which has a strong character and could be worn by women who like the perfumes not too sweet and look for something particular .
On my skin the longevity was quite good, but I usually sprayed the fragrance on my scarf for a better sillage.
The price of all this line is quite affordable and this one is a good product I recommend.

Fresh citrus and woods
This opens as a light, watery , citrus and woods kind of scent, very fresh. Then a sweet, delicate floral appears - the osmanthus, and it's a good rendition of the flower even if it's not exactly the 'real' thing. It has the fruity sweetness, but with green notes added, keeping it from being too sweet, and I love the orange and neroli. I can't detect the grapefruit. The base is warm and woody. Longevity is fairly good for this type of fragrance, it lasts about 4 hours on me, sillage is moderate.

Suddenly, Last Summer with Green Tea
I received this as a gift and after my first application, it went into the 'nope box' for over a year. The 'nope box' is a sort of fragrance mental institution where I send fragrances to get the help they need, but sometimes, I forget who is in there and while they are in there, sometimes they actually listen to my critiques and make constructive adjustments of their faults. I can't explain how they fix themselves up, it's like when you lock your Barbie Doll in the closet and the next morning you find her sitting on your desk again, looking fresh as a daisy. I'm sure it's my body chemistry and the weather that are now in synch with this fragrance, timing IS everything!
Anywho...when I go pull out a lucky winner like Fleur d'Osmanthus, it is truly like a rabbit out of a hat. Now suddenly, Fleur d'Osmanthus is a fresh thin green herbal citrus splash, with an excellent natural softer neroli without any sharpness. Fleur d'Osmanthus dries into a Sencha green tea note, the mandarin note really expands as it dries down and wraps the osmanthus, here, in a gauzy almost dried mandarin rind. The base is a soft benzoin with a touch of Sandalwood, I don't detect Tonka, but it is nice anyway. It has the strength of a after bath splash and works well on both men and women looking for a herbal citrus alternative to Elizabeth Arden's Green Tea.
This is not particularly sweet, and is definitely appropriate for office and professional as well as casual wear. I can imagine this scent on Katharine Hepburn in one of her more androgynous but energized roles. Fleur d'Osmanthus is nothing if not a passionate mind-clearing action scent, no deeper Freudian analysis or lobotomies required to enjoy this one.
