Pink grapefruit, yuzu, pink pepper, ambergris, and seafoam.

 

Not sure how I feel about this one.  

It's grapefruit and ambergris with a bit of something briney in the background.  I'm grateful that the seafoam didn't go in the direction most aquatic notes go, meaning it usually smells like rot/decay on my skin.  The seafoam note actually smelled like distant sea water.   I didn't detect any pink pepper which is disappointing because I feel the pink pepper would've kicked the scent up a notch.

I think I need to retest after a little while and see if the pink pepper comes out and how it changes the scent.

Right now the scent is nice but a bit dull.

On the wand, and fresh on my skin, I get lots of fresh grapefruit. Grapefruit SN.

 

In drydown, I get a faint salty air hint. Still mostly grapefruit, with faint ocean air. 

 

Once this dries, I get fading grapefruit and a breath of faint ambergris.

 

Then it fades out, leaving a dot of nondescript sweetness.

 

My skin eht it.

Grapefruit zest, ambergris, and powdery white musk. This is a citrusy white musk and ambergris blend on me. Medium throw and wear length.

Oooh sharp and bright citrus (grapefruit most apparent to me) but not too sour, with the rosy kick of pepper. The salty seafoam and ambergris is a really interesting counterpart. It's like smelling the sea air while cutting up a grapefruit.
