Neroli Portofino

neroli portofino edges
Tom Ford aquamarine square apothecary bottle with gold label. Half the floor space of the big duty free shop in Stockholm’s Arlanda airport is dedicated to perfume.

A drier 4711, less sweet, less herbal, with twice the lasting power…
…which means twenty minutes rather than ten.

The orange flower is lovely, but it gets eaten up by the bergamot pretty quickly. I like the amber at the bottom–it roughs up the jasmine, but the rosemary and lavender don’t have the freshness of the basil.

If I were stupid rich, I might buy a bottle, but tried and true and cheap suits broke me just fine.
