Notes: Bergamot, Grapefruit, Neroli, Verbena, Ambergris
I tried 10ml and I realized I owed it for the summer ...
This is dry neroli and orange. It is such a high-class smell. It is fresh but long-lasting. It can be worn with anything on a summer hot day. It is best with a button-down and sport coat. It shouts high class. Don't wear this if you are slumming it in the gym. It is not sweet so it won't overpower you on a hot day. This is tied with Royal Equestrian as the best fragrance from Alexandria.
On the opening you are greeted with a blast of sweet and sour citrus notes. Zesty lemon, sparkling bergamot, and bright grapefruit are the most pronounced for me. It is a fresh zesty lemon, just as if you were to peel the rind and spritz the oils on your skin. In the mids the scent becomes a bit more green, almost as if a twist of lemongrass was infused in a nice cold glass of lemonade, with trails of the neroli orange blossom flower wafting in the wind. The dry down is superb, reminding me as if all the previous notes were muddled by a wooden pestle with a dash of salt thrown in. It must be worn on skin, otherwise it definitely smells like a 'dirty orange'. 9/10 would recommend!
Still wondering after 50 fragrances from the perfume genious Hany Hafez what makes him so exceptionally brilliant at this...pls be a skeptic and give this fragrance a shot and you will be hooked for life...came out better the original...common now Hany.
I've never gotten my nose on Neroli sauvage which this is inspired by so I can't speak on the closeness to it but this one right here is really nice. Great longevity good projection and it smells classy. Citrus juices are nice to my nose but not usually something I find myself wanting to reach gor very often. This one is a definite exception. It has the nice citrus but it's not cloying or super sweet. Its fresh but rich. Its airy but not light. A banger in my book and full bottle purchase worthy
