I was wrong. I looked at the bottle and thought, “oh, this is not going to be for me.”
With notes of mandarin (so juicy!), red hibiscus (a fantasy accord) and vanilla, Red Hibiscus is a transportive scent that will just as happily dance on your skin in Margate as it will in Miami.
If you’re a guy that likes a brutish, “Hey, I’m a man’s man,” fragrance, this one won’t be for you. But if you enjoy a crisp white linen shirt and a bronzed visage (from the bottle, obviously), you are going to enjoy this.
