The story

Review:
I managed to pick this one up from a private seller, complete with vintage box!
I'm not sure I can fairly review this - My bottle is potentially 20 years old!
The opening is zingy and effervescent - Reminiscent of sherbet lemons!
The dry down is delightful celebration of the woody aromatic; the almost cliched gentlemen's shaving scent.
I imagine this had a signature Jo Malone twist when brand new, but my bottle was, although not unpleasant, very 'one note'.
I'm not sure it would stand up in today's market, but an interesting piece of history if you manage to track one down for a good price.
