That's why the neroli is rather synthetic (though not screechy by any means), and at times the composition does smell quite close to grape soda and orange popsicles, especially in the initial and mid phases. In addition, the use of such refined and balanced notes make this a fantastic formal fragrance. Then the pepper and vetiver come in making it very masculine, reminding me of my grandfather (not a bad thing, it just happens that pepper and bergamot were highlighted on his skin when he wore a fragrance).

It's a very lovely fragrance, but I can't quite decide if I care for the dry down. Great fragrance. I don't know why, but those scents are too old for me. A fresh-woody scent for men (rather, unisex) that's been given a nice twist by adding a lot of neroli, and a touch of pepper. Then the dry down was wonderful.
