I inherited this from my mum, who had received it as an unwanted gift. She thought it had it an unusual fragrance after it had been worn a while - I since read on a perfume blog that someone thought it smelt of cat pee and she instantly agreed!
I, however, really like it. I certainly don't think the fragrance does anything unpleasant with wearing, and the initial hit is extremely citrusy, as the name would suggest.
If you enjoy light fruit scents, this makes a more sophisticated take. Using grapefruit makes this more unusual and grown-up than similar perfumes, and the Guerlain have made the fragrance very real. A spritz of this makes you think of slicing into a fresh, juicy fruit. The refreshing lightness makes it perfect for summer and hot holidays abroad.
The scent does develop into something less light, but I still find it very pleasant. More notes come through as you continue to wear it, making it, in my opinion, a little more interesting. However, be warned that there are those, who, like my mum, find this stage a bit too musky.
Although it was originally intended for my mother, I feel Pamplelune could be worn by women of any age. It's timeless and very classy.
Pamplelune is part of the Aqua Allegoria range of perfumes, all based around florals and fruits, and like all of these comes in a simple, elegant glass bottle that will look good on your dressing table.
The eau de toilette has certainly made me interested in buying other Aqua Allegoria scents as it is so well made. At around £30 for a bottle, I feel it's a good buy given the quality and originality.
