Encore Une Fois Review by 99bottledscents

There are fragrances that live in a world that cross from simple scents to experiences in bottles, pulling on our desire to remember rather than banking on a wish to smell great, Encore Une Fois translates to "yet again", does it manage to pull on your memories? Let's Deep Dive. Encore opens up with a beautiful salty citrus, very oceany but less "beachy", aquatic without being blue, a tad pull of green comes from the violet and the leafy orange but make no mistake, this is about the salty tones and in that process opens up for a tad smoky, for a stronger orange vibe with a bit of sour bergamot, the petitgrain gives character with it's unique bitterness.
