Herbaceous and clean - more "zest" than "sun" - and smells, well, kinda like hand soap
Received Zeste de Soleil alongside Bright Crystal EDT this month, and first of all, got a bit of a laugh on the scent description card - because someone put a picture of a starfruit where it says passion fruit. But I digress. The overall impression for this scent is 150% clean. I'd like to pull the punches and not say what I'm thinking - but I swear to you, this smells like either dish soap, or perhaps that orange hand soap? It's not a bad scent, but there are no florals here, and I dare you to find any (real) citrus - if there's yuzu in the mix, it's hiding really well (compared to something like, say, D&G Light Blue). While this scent is probably not my style most of the time, I imagine it will be appropriate to wear to places where you just want to smell fresh: places like the gym, for example. This scent has a pretty solidly herbaceous spin, so I would not select it if you like softer, more feminine scents - for example, I am finding myself falling hard for Bright Crystal (see my review over there), but this scent doesn't have enough of a floral or musk/depth component for my tastes. I'll wear this one when I'm looking to smell cleanly inoffensive, but not make a statement. Who will like this: Folks who are fans of a more herbaceous, clean, unisex style scent, and aren't absolutely 100% bent on having a strong citrus note (since there isn't much of one), and do not mind what is likely to be a much lighter scent overall.
