Etro Resort

Etro Resort

I decided to spend the next three days testing Etro's Benetroessere, the fragrances in this line are Resort, Relent and Raving. I decided to wear Resort today.

Etro describes Resort as: revitalizing, it regenerates with the sounds of silence and metaphors of nature, helping you get in touch with your inner self.

This fruity floral fragrance is characterized by the energetic aroma of the carambola and Australian magnolia.

Top: lime, tangerine and grapefruit
Middle: carambola, jasmine, Australian magnolia
Bottom: musk, sandalwood, patchouli

It opens very citrusy, I really can't smell the floral notes in here as it's more fruity than floral. to me, the fragrance is slightly masculine. The bottom notes seem to be the heaviest on me, rather dry but as the top notes seem rather lush there is a balance in this fragrance. I think this would be a nice year round fragrace for those who can pull it off but I'd wear it more as a warm weather fragrance. The staying power of this is really great and two sprays lasted all day on me.

Resort retailed for $60/5 oz. when it released two years ago, I believe it's discontinued but can be found on the web through certain sites for around $50 or so.

I have not tried any of the 3, but I love those bottles. Will have to search them out and give them a try.
I need to order some supplies from Madina but I can send you samples of all three. They never sent me my original order months ago and i keep forgetting to place it again!
