This one’s a little sharper, exciting, jumpy, quite fun!
Anton Rubenstein’s Staccato Etude Opus 23, No. 2, by Jouni Somero
Wet: grapefruit, lemon, soap, tomato, floral notes
Dry: lime, grapefruit, lemon, vinegar, peony
It’s that musk again interfering with my enjoyment of this scent. It would otherwise be a rather nice cheerful, bright scent, but the musk makes it smell like a combination of Pledge and roasted tomatoes after two hours. Very strange. I don’t understand it very well, but it’s kind of tasty in that weird “maybe I’ll just take one bite” kind of way. It eventually gets softer and the peony takes over, and it becomes much less “odd tomato tart” and more “flower salad dressed with lemon vinaigrette” with pepper notes, and would probably smell fantastic on someone who uses a lot of cocoa butter on the daily.
