Review:
First, full disclosure - I have not worn this fragrance for any length of time.
It's one I've tried out in store, but never been overly impressed by. Instead of the expected tangy freshness of citrus, Grapefruit has always struck me as very woody and earthy.
Not one I've rushed to buy, but I did manage to pick up the cologne in a promotion.
And when I have reached for it, I've been much more impressed.
On the skin the citrus is much more prominent, and adds a fun effervescence to the deeper woody note.
I can't rightfully fully review, but will update this post once I've worn it over a number of days.
