Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 1/32 ml imp that has been decanted for me by Yowahoshihime. Her label features the scent notes and her decanter information on the back. The front has the name of the scent and company name along with the label art, which looks like
- ITI: Bright and effervescent grapefruit pulp, bright yuzu, and lemon rind joyously leap forth from the vial. What an uplifting combination. It makes my mouth water!
- Wet: Yes, that’s a stunning scent. Grapefruit, ruby and juicy, sweetened with yuzu and garnished with lemon peel makes more a a citrus perfume that rivals the juicy veracity of The Body Shop’s old Satsuma formula. As it settles, the musk begins to creep in, adding a dreaminess to the bright, vibrant citrus notes.
- Dry: 8 hours later, it’s a deliciously beautiful white musk and very subtle citrus. Even after significant wear time, this still has a little bit of throw and presence. This is a winner for me.
Other Impressions: I imagine layering this with a fizzy champagne or crisp snow note would make this absolute heaven. If you are a citrus lover, then give this one a try.
