Strangely, I got little citrus out of this fragrance except for its initial hit of lime followed by bergamot, but many more deep, almost grassy, smoky notes on the middle and back ends of it. I decided to put a little R&R into it! (Reading and research, that is...)
After the bergamot, I picked up on juniper almost immediately - that was the "depth" that hit me once the limey citrus faded, and it's a nice, round middle to the fragrance.
The grassiness was a little tougher to discern. Turns out, that's from a thing called vetiver. It's actually a grass! Little wonder, then, that it smells grassy. It gives a lovely lift to the fragrance that helps it not land in the "cologne-zone" and keeps it feminine.
Finally, the smokiness. That one was a puzzler. It's from elemi, which is related to frankincense and myrrh - resins! And what do resins do best? Smoke, when heated. Or in the case of perfume, smell "kinda smoky" on warm skin.
All these factors contribute to a wonderfully complex fragrance that sits on the edge of the end of Summer before it settles into Autumn, when you're convinced you can smell the leaves starting to change colors, but it's still so warm outside you're not sure you care yet. It's not a fragrance for everyone, as it completely lacks anything close to a floral note once the citrus burns itself out - and trust me, the citrus fades fast: it's exceptionally light, entirely frontloaded, and a low focal point of the fragrance. For those who like a richer, "thicker," almost spicy scent, this is a home run.
