Pineapple, White Musk, & Blackcurrant

Recommended Posts

Oooh, firsties!  Anyway, very happy that I got this one; had not seen a pineapple note from the Lab in a while so jumped right on this one.  I expected it to be a fruit-heavy knockout; in fact it's a very sophisticated scent. In the bottle:  A punch of fresh, ripe, cut pineapple core, sweet and sharp.  On, wet:  The pineapple sweetens up just a bit as the blackcurrant starts to come out.  The currant note is more of a sweet currant/currant jam, not like the sharp almost sour blackcurrants that I remember from my childhood (my paternal Grandma had black, red, and white currants in her garden).  Once everything has a chance to dry down, the white musk makes its debut. This particular white musk is only nominally floral; think fruit blossom of some sort and leaning more towards a skin musk/light stone fruit musk  I'd swear I was getting a teeny bit of peach in the final blend.  Medium throw; this one sits ever so slightly above the skin.  This one reminds me of a gauzy peasant blouse worn on a hot day.

My skin amps the white musk in this for some reason. I really like the pineapple I get; I don't smell much currant, which is weird because usually I amp currant notes. This is light and fruity, but my skin eats it up really fast. Doesn't last a half hour on my silly skin. :(

Not nearly as fruity as I was expecting. The white musk ends up coming across as white tea, to me, which ends up smelling kinda perfumey. The currant is in the background, giving it a chewyness that is nice, but not enough to give it enough sweetness for my taste. Definitely not for me.
