* Part of a trio of fragrances celebrating the history and traditions of India by Neela Vermeire and perfumer Bertrand Duchaufor, Bombay Bling draws inspirations from the joyous, celebratory feel of modern India.
* Imagine a pleasant version of menthol, a cold that is bracing but not overbrearing. This is the effect of the vivid and dimensional top notes.
* The fruits are joined by white floral heart notes. The listed notes are jasmine, tuberose, plumeria, gardenia, and ylang ylang, but I am not able point out which ones are actually there since it seems very blended.
* The florals recede a bit, but the fruity top notes act as a haze over the base notes of wood, patchouli, and a not too sweet vanilla.
Summary: Fruity floral fragrances are all over the place, but Bombay Bling stands out as one of the best ones that I have ever experienced. Not only is there a clear development, it feels incredibly rich and full without being too strong. I used the words ‘vivid’ and ‘dimensional’ to describe the top notes, but those words also describe the floral midnotes and the woody base. I found myself sniffing the scent nonstop while wearing it, because it feels like a three-dimensional fragrance. The inspiration of colorful, modern India is definitely clear throughout the development of the fragrance. Even though Bombay Bling is a fruity floral, guys could definitely wear it, and it’s not too loud for an office fragrance. Longevity is excellent, with it lasting more than 12 hours on my skin.
