The name of the company is set in negative font against a black silhouette of trees on the tap of the label.
- ITI: Oh my goodness, that IS muskmelon! Juicy and delicious, the melon is followed by kaffir lime, making my mouth water. There’s a faint undertone of polished wood, but not enough to detract from the beauty of the muskmelon note.
- Wet: The kaffir lemon is a little strong, but that muskmelon is just mouth-watering near the top of this scent. As the oil starts to dry, I’m getting just a hint of coconut and a hint of bergamot just under.
- Dry: After 7 hours, the scent has mellowed into a nice combination of kaffir lemon and polished ho wood perfumed with a hit of benzoin and the ghost of coconut. I wish the muskmelon were a little more long-lived, but I still enjoy the scent in this state.
Other Impressions: None.
