While shopping at an Asian market, I picked up a yuzu, often referred to as the Japanese grapefruit. As I ran my finger down the peel, the bright and tart aromas burst into the air. As I did this, a lovely gentleman came up to me and said that it is a traditional custom to bathe in yuzu fruits to help relax the mind and calm the body. I rushed home and filled my bath tub with yuzu and vanilla scented bath salts. As I steeped in the calming waters, the feeling was pure heaven. The bright yuzu intermingled with the warm softness of the vanilla created a yin and yang of tart and warmth; awaking and relaxing. This fragrance recreates that experience as it explodes with tart citrus notes of yuzu, pink grapefruit and lime and continues its evolution into floral notes of ylang-ylang and neroli and ends with deep nuances of vanilla and patchouli. ~Danielle, Founder, NOTE Fragrances
Honesty is the best policy, right. So this is a polarizing fragrance. People either adore it or can't stand it. It is a very citrus forward fragrance. But if you love it, it has one of the most lovely dry-downs on the skin. It transforms from citrus, to floral, to a heady base. Try it, you just might love it!
