The topiary yields star anise and the air is filled with licorice, tangerine and orange skins, very subtle herbs and the dew of the garden. The atmosphere remains damp and the circulating aromas refresh the spirit. The feeling is revitalizing and in contrast to those who believe that smells aren't capable of being life affirming. Fraiche Badiane isn't a magical fragrance, but it's an excellent fresh scent that has stood the test of time and walked out unscathed.
Fraiche Badiane is a vibrant winner and suitable for either gender and any season. The versatility is commendable and the fragrance has acceptable sillage and longevity of about 5 hours. It's yet another winner from Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier and gets a thumbs up from Aromi twice.
