In the Garden Of Good And Bad Neroli (Perfume Thoughts: Maire Parfumeur de Gantier Jardin Du Neroli)
When is neroli just a neroli? If it's in a bottle, it must be MPG's Jardin du Neroli. This perfume is just orange, orange, and more orange, and maybe some bergamot. It starts out as a citrus burst of oranges, but it is not sharp - it veers more towards the powdery kind. I see on Fragrantica that there should be some jasmine in here, it is quite faint and hard to discern. It's a little bit unremarkable, but at the same time it's not really a bad perfume - am I making sense? It would be a great scent to wear on a lazy summer day, say, if you were just going to be watching television, or doing chores. Or perhaps because I found a bottle dirt cheap that I just have a good feeling about it.
