40º à l’Ombre - Satallite - Review

If you like Pamplelune, you will love this one. They share a very prominent note. You know the one? Need I say more? Like Momma always said ... oh never mind. Sparkling and bubbly but wayyyy more grapefruit than orange, if you know what I mean. And I suspect you do.

"A light and sparkling scent
like an icy zest.
A bubble of freshness.
Orange Mirage! Infinitely Orange!"

LuckyScent interprets the name to mean 40 degrees in the shade. I like Satellite's description ... Orange "Mirage".

Notes: Lemon, orange, bergamot, grapefruit, jasmine, lavender, geranium, musk, sandalwood, patchouli

Hi Vic,

Does the patchouli come through as it does on Pamplelune? This note distinguishes Pamplelune from other grapefruit fragrances.

If the patchouli turns the grapefruit to the cat pee note, then yes. Other that that I smell nothing. Yikes.
