Jardin du Poete by Eau d'Italie
In this midst of the citric-herbal onslaught that is the opening of Jardin du Poete, there were fleeting moments of the best grapefruit rendition I have come across. It wafted through the accord for just a few minutes and then was gone like a thief in the night. How awesome it would have been to find a way to breathe longevity into that note. I'm not even a grapefruit fan, yet it was completely realistic before dissipating into the biting herbal accord that is the salutation of Jardin du Poete.
Even the woodiness of Jardin du Poete is green. Moist twigs and bark along with the ever present herbal quality reinforce my associations with days spent in Fairmount Park back in my adolescence. It smelled like this after a sun shower and I can almost hear the earth crunching below my feet as we looked for new ways to avoid boredom and find adventure.
Sillage is good and longevity is average. I get about 4 hours before wanting to reapply. Thumbs up from Aromi for Eau d'Italie's Jardin du Poete. A sample wear ( as always ) is recommended.
