I really like this light citrussy cologne. I swear I smell vetiver in the drydown, but that note is not listed in the Basenotes.net notes listing. What IS listed:

Top Notes: Mandarin, Cardamom, Citron, Bergamot, Dill; Middle Notes: Freesia, Hibiscus, Cinnamon; Base Notes: Amyris Wood, Sandalwood, Benzoin, White Musk, Guaiac wood.

I did smell the freesia, and I do not love that note, but it was fleeting. The overall impression is of fresh citrus and vietiver to my nose. It would be really lovely on a very hot day. I wish it were summer right now.

EDITED: I applied more to see whether I could smell the vetiver note more clearly, and this second helping amped up the freesia to the point where I couldn't smell anything else. Eventually the herbal/citrus/vetiver qualities re-emerged, but bah... I cant wade through a field of freesia to get there. Overall, this scent cold have been great, but missed the mark.
