I got this one because I love the smell of tomato leaves and basil. I’m not sure how it will work as a perfume, but I’m eager to try.

- ITI: Yum! Green lemon, olive leaf, and gorgeous tomato leaf emerge all at once, followed by hints of basil and a very subtle sweetness far off at the very end that doesn’t compromise the bright fore notes.
- Wet: Oh, that’s such a wonderful tomato leaf note right next to a brilliantly uplifting lemon! The basil is subtle and waivers just underneath the two, adding to the imagery of clear, bright summer greens. I wouldn’t say that I smell like salad, but the impression of verdant summer bounty.
- Dry: After 10 hours, the scent is really lovely and still very much detectable. It dries down into a beautiful olive leaf musk with super faint undertones of lemon, fig, and a hint of green.
Other Impressions: “It smells like suntan lotion.” -Tony
