They say: orange, mandarin, orange blossom and musks, “for the confident, casual woman who puts herself together with polished ease”.
I say: Firstly, I can’t believe a dedicated chypre-lover such as myself has been seduced by a perfume called “Sporty Citrus”. Despite the rather uninspiring name, this is a full-bodied and warm fragrance. Sporty, maybe, if by sport you mean languishing on a lounger at the country club, watching tanned nubiles play tennis over the rim of your champagne coupe. The citrus sparkles; it’s a clean and refreshing scent but that thrust of musk bends it into something more sensual and intriguing. I can’t think of another fragrance like it.
