SotD: Byredo Gypsy Water

So I’ve worn Gypsy Water twice now, and I really quite like it. Perhaps a bit of a skin scent, rather than the beast mode that some other reviewers might have been looking for, but very nice bright woody fragrance.

My big confession with this one is that when I put it on this morning I was convinced that woodiness was a patchouli-ish note. Which, I guess, goes to show how much more scope there is to keep training my nose, since there is no patchouli in the listed notes, nor does it seem to be something that other people are identifying. <shrug> Maybe it the incense that’s tricking me?

The vanilla and sandalwood actually seem to linger remarkably well for something that starts so bright and almost translucent.

I might have to revisit Gypsy Water alongside something with incense or amber to really tease out what is working for me.

Notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Pepper, Juniper Berries / Incense, Pine Needles, Orris / Amber, Vanilla, Sandalwood
