Notes: Bergamot, tomato leaf, orange, basil, lavender, jasmine, sage, cinnamon, shobu, sandalwood, musk and amber.
Pros: Aromatic, unique, light composition, highlighted by leafy greens, citrus and cinnamon.
Cons: Discontinued (but that's a pro, really, because it's so darn inexpensive nowadays...Nowadays!); might be a little light in the projection area...
Reminds me of: I really can't think of anything - this one is dominated by the jasmine and cinnamon. Maybe Fresh Hombre des Flors Jasminium?
Development: None - the entire composition is laid out before you from the get-go.
Longevity: Though it's subtle, it stays with me throughout the day.
Sillage: Subtle...stays close to the skin.
Where can I buy it? $29.99 for a 100ml edt spray at ImaginationPerfumery.com
Bottleworthy? Absolutely, the perfect scent for summer!
The Bottom Line: My 2nd favorite of the Alain Delon line behind Pharos, this one just pleases me every time. I reach for this when I want something light, unobtrusive, slightly green, and very fresh. Perfect for after a day at the beach, and perfect for jasmine lovers!
