Fantastic!!! Beautifully blended and on my skin smells very fresh, clean and very natural. if I am not wrong it has a hint of vanilla too but that doesn’t make it heavy, generally I don’t like vanilla dominant fragrance but here it’s very soft. Kinda old school but in a good way. Refined, classy and perfect for summer evenings!!!
SOT Afternoon: Italian Neroli by Trudi Bleu
Notes from the website:
Top Notes: Lemon ,Neroli
Heart Notes: Vanille , Amber , Patchouli
Classification from the website:
It opens up with neroli and and some citruses but not a bitter, sharp and sour citrus but a little sweet.
After 15-20 minutes it starts to settle down and the hint of vanilla starts to show up and the sweetness of cedar also comes into play.
I definitely get patchouli from it. The neroli becomes more prominent over time and it turns into a neroli, vanilla combo on a woodsy base.
It gets a little powdery after the hour mark and the entire scent bubble sits around you for 6-8 hours.
I won’t categorise it as a freshie but it definitely is a unique way to combine the notes of citrus and florals with a popular gourmand note like vanilla.
It’s experimental and it’s quite good. I would say it sits somewhere between designers and niche.
I personally won’t wear it on high summers but is good for less hotter days. This is not an outdoor scent for me. I would like to wear it on the late afternoon or around dusk. Because the blast of citrus and the florals will dry down with the setting sun and a bright neroli, vanilla combo on a woodsy base would come out during the evening.
Longevity: 6-8 hours
Projection: Within arms length (I personally prefer things which does not project too loudly, so that’s good for me) for 4 hours at least if not more.
Sillage: I would say sillage is moderate but the scent trail is quite noticeable.
Verdict: All in all it’s not a complex scent but quite a pleasant one. I think it has a good mass appeal and is a crowd pleaser.
I bought this fragrance from the store fell in love with it straight away. It is very different fresh fragrance with woody smell lasts more than any fresh fragrance i used ever.
