I'm so disappointed in all the reviewers who missed the best part of this scent, which is the INCENSE in the dry down.

Balle de Match starts off with a zesty, vibrant top note of grapefuit that is exciting and entrancing. Normally I don't care for the bitterness of grapefruit but this seemed different for some...

Terrific, bracing lime-incense scent with a strong peppery edge. PdN has a terrific way with their citrus fragrances, as they are all unique and sometimes surprising. Nice for both men and women.

Balle de Match opens with grapefruit - an entire orchard's worth of grapefruit condensed into one spritz. However, it's appealing grapefruit. Normally, the phrase "appealing grapefruit" would...

With first spray, it's as if you've squeezed the juices of grapefruit and lemon rinds onto your skin. I now realize that it's not so much lemon-dominated citruses that offend me, but certain...
