Soothing, Cheerful and Citrusy
Everything & Nothing No. 10 is probably my favorite scent in this collection, of which, I have now tried all. It may have something to do with my unquenchable craving for fresh citrus and sunshine in my vitamin D. during this dreary soggy depleted, Winter Solstice time frame, but no-matter, 'where ever we find ourselves, that is where we are.' This fragrance is a mood enhancer, easy to wear, uncomplicated but satisfying. The citrus is very orange/tangerine-centric without the bitterness of the pith or rinds and lacking the overt sickening sweetness of candy. Everything % Nothing No.10 is a dead-on ringer for a now defunct, mellow, happy orange body wash from Origins that was replaced by a zestier grapefruit scented product called "Gloom-Away". Compared to some of the other mixtures in this line that are more intriguing, audacious but perhaps not as smoothly executed, this scent is just content and comfortable. The miscellaneous floral notes indicated are Lily-of-the-Valley, soft clean rose, white jasmine and a wispy peony which gives the top a very fresh, breezy feel. The middle warms with a scant trace of white, a delicate golden leaf breakfast tea note and juicy edible orange sections that figuratively squirt tiny beads of fragrance into the air. The sillage on this fragrance is low to moderate, which makes it delightful because it can be a personal skin scent or layered with some of Margot's sweeter, denser or spicier offerings - I recommend "Arsenic No. 17", "Tainted Love No. 62" or "La Vie, La Mort No 90". Longevity on this was sorely lacking, but again, no-matter- the line comes with a complete set of travel sizes, combo roller ball packs, intensely scented hand crèmes and full-size atomizers for a bounty of layering options- so just sit back & relax.
