  1. I walked in to the HB store today and was overcome by this amazing fragrance. It's a lovely citrusy floral that has a crisp "Hermes" quality to it. It is demure and understated, yet noticeable. Very nice in terms of depth and projection - a cut above the typical department store cookie cutter fragrances du jour. I think this scent is perfect for day/lunch with the ladies. It's feminine without being girly - lacks the icky sweet sucker punch I so despise. It reminds me of a few of my Jo Malone colognes (I'm a mixer), but with more oomph. The bottle is definitely vanity worthy. A spritz on my wrist has lasted all day.

    • Thank you for this evocative review. It felt like we were at Bendel's!

  2. Am I the only one that thinks this fragrance smells like B.O. and cologne?! It's not feminine at all! It stinks! I'm very disappointed!

  3. Amazed that no one further has commented on this well - crafted fragrance. Perhaps it's too new, perhaps it is too niche. (Although wouldn't that be ironic in a venue that reveres niche?)

    The fragrance is not groundbreaking, to be sure. It is also not, refreshingly, reminiscent of something --anything -- that has been released too recently (or too much). What it *is* is the timeless scent of taste and elegance, wrapped in fresh and seductive citrus-orange notes and resting on long-lasting, classic sandalwood. Between, floral notes sit quietly, binding citrus and woods together. Sublimely easy to live with as would be many another luxury interpretation of something used everyday and underappreciated.

    • This is tantalizing!
