I didn’t have very high hopes for Tory Burch EdP. From what I have heard of it before sampling, it was a likeable fragrance, but without a spark. After sampling, however, I cannot see why it is underappreciated.
To me, Tory Burch’s EdP smells like citrus + white flowers, which I generally enjoy. It is very much an orange-centred scent, with neroli and mandarin orange opening in the topnotes. In the midnotes, I smell an edible mix of mimosa, jasmine, and tuberose. The base is a definite musk – a common and safe choice for major market releases. Overall, it smells like a white cream cake with a sweet orange filling. I wouldn’t name this a fresh fragrance (although it is by no means heavy), but my boyfriend did smell green in it, which he liked a lot.
Perhaps more was expected of Tory Burch’s first fragrance. It is not a masterpiece, but I think it is a worthy summer scent and not at all boring.
