Fragrance Find - Tory Burch the Fragrance

If you're a big fan of Tory Burch (the person, the fashion line or both) then I'm sure you've heard about her debut scent, Tory Burch Tory Burch .

Visually, the bottle and packaging are very much in tune with the Tory Burch aesthetic and story - for example, there are pops of the trademark orange and gold.  And the shape of the bottle and cap was inspired by Burch's mother's collection of vintage perfume bottles.

The scent, was a bit of a surprise for me, and a pleasant one at that.  It's less of a chic or glam take on fragrance and more of what Tory terms "tomboy meets feminine".  That means there are some florals - but not an overabundance of them, and there is some citrus - but done in a much more masculine way.  This is a direct influence of Tory's father and brothers' signature scents, which she grew up also loving.

The opening of the scent was a big burst of a bit of grapefruit and tuberose on my skin.  The blend was an immediate "strong" one - not very soft at all, but it caught my attention.  Later, a few more of the florals came in and more of the citrus. 

Overall, this is a sharper, more masculine scent to me (despite the appearance of it's bottle I think).  The majority of the fragrance has a lot of the Vetiver and neroli, a much more earthy, green feel that on my skin got a little stronger as the day went on.  The dry down was very green, and I thought a bit sexy, as well.

I would say this is a very "grown up" scent for a confident women who doesn't want to smell like everyone else, but wants to have her presence known.  I really loved it for this reason and if you're a lover of fragrances (men's or the green/earthy variety) then this is a line to explore.
