Notes: cassis, Amalfi lemon, geranium and rose. This fragrance opens with a wonderful geranium note which is sweet and spicy at the same time. The Mediterranean flower is enhanced by citrus and cassis note to give it added sparkle and depth. Initially the clove-like facet is so strong on my skin, I could almost misread the floral as carnation, but this misleading effect fades fast. A tinge of green adds contrast to the abundance of sweet and spicy facets. Once the notes have settled, the geranium accord is rich and harmonious. Unfortunately I detect a flat metallic facet at the base of the accord (most likely caused by the rose note). It is not off-putting, but mars the overall beauty of the composition. The fragrance changes character as it transitions from head to heart notes: galbanum and spices burn out and are replaced by woodsy-herbal notes. The green balancing note of the head accord remains and adds a mossy facet to the heart. The dry down is warm woodsy base sweetened by a remnant of the main geranium accord. Lasts eight hours on my skin.
