Summer cocktails anyone?
Arrogance Mix - Lime Zucchero (Lime Sugar) is a sweet summer cocktail to freshen up a hot day. The key to making lime feminine and not masculine, as in so many men's colognes, is SUGAR. The opening of this sweet lime concoction reminds me of a lime version of Aqualina's Pink Sugar, but only the first blast. Unlike Pink Sugar, this is simple and less complex; notably so with fewer notes. The lime blast is sweet, juicy and a bit tart. I don't detect the anise note (that's a good thing), this scent is mouth watering and delicious enough to be served with a tiny umbrella. The drydown is a very subtle soft floral musk that lays close to the skin, but is sexy, in a clean sort of way.
Notes: Lime, Star Anise, Rose, Hazelnut, Sugar, Musk.
These EDT's are not long lasting, but fun nonetheless. My favorite by far of the line is the Lime Sugar but Sephora also offers:
Notes: Litchi, Coriander Leaves, Peony, Milk, Almonds, Musk.
Muschio Blanco, Mela
Notes: Pink Grapefruit, Kumquat, Apple, Osmanthus, Vanilla, White Musk.
99Perfume.Com offers these additional scents:
Basil Mandarin, Vanilla Papaya
Interesting note: The Arrogance Mix line is made in Italy by Schiapparelli Pinkenz, the perfumer behind Shocking de Schiaparelli, Blu Bluemarine, Zut and others.
