Tory Burch Eau de Parfum ($62.00 for 1 oz./30ml, for the bottle pictured, but it is available in various sizes) is supposed to contain the following notes: neroli, grapefruit, cassis, bergamot, peony, tuberose, jasmine sambac, vetiver, and sandalwood. The bottle totally caught my attention–the cap is gorgeous (to me) with its gold metal design and over-sized, square shape. The opening was a loud, burst of grapefruit that then became a mix of sweetened grapefruit with florals playing in the background. Of the florals in this, tuberose seemed most prominent on my skin, as it was sweet, strong, and a little heady, and then I noticed jasmine tinkling around. I’m missing the creaminess I’d expect from the notes in this. The grapefruit and florals overwhelm the vetiver and neroli; there’s a hint of vetiver lurking about–a little earthy, green vibe I get only if I take a slow inhale with my nose to my wrist and close my eyes. Two hours in, the vetiver is stronger, more noticeable, but it’s mostly a skin scent at this point.
