Longevity

Fragrance becomes subtle and soft at the 7-hour mark.

0-40 minutes:

Cool, like a breeze, but not cold. You stand looking out at water, but a distance away. Stark white homes contrast with the green of the sea and the dark of the plants. A strong breeze is filled with citrus and spices.

60-120 minutes:

Soft mandarin wafts your way with hints of fresh cardamon. Fresh cherries and jammy fruits begin to peak out. 

Final Thoughts:

This fragrance lasts 6-8 hours and stays rather consistent for much of the time, use the time of re-application as a moment of reflection and pause. This is a refreshing scent, motivating, exciting.
