Squaring the "Lemon"
Michael Edwards classifies Albi as "rich citrus" and that's how this fragrance comes across to me. The density of the composition is due to the heavy dose of tree moss, which is most brilliantly married to the petitgrain-heavy citrus chord. There is a moment of candied sweetness, but in contrast to comparable fragrances, such as Tova for Men, it remains discreet and does not transform the wearer into a walking piece of candied lemon peel. In my opinion, lavender only plays a supporting role as a light herbal counterpoint to the mossy base, instead of staging itself as a supporting pillar. All in all, Albi succeeds in squaring the circle as an innovative citrus scent that reconciles summer liveliness with masculine-mossy gravitas and citrus freshness with astonishing longevity and sillage. Excellent construction and beautiful to wear.
