Fruits of the Tree of Knowledge (formally known as “What Katie Did on Friday Night”) by 4160 Tuesdays is, as you’d expect from its glorious title, is a fruity fragrance.
The opening is sharp and zesty with all the citruses. This adds a sparkling, effervescent quality to the perfume. It’s seriously ALL OF THE CITRUS. Sometimes I notice a lime peel, other times it’s a grapefruit zest, then freshly squeezed lemon juice…you get the point. It’s all the citrus. As it settles, it reminds me of sangria and sandalwood. It’s like a fruity red wine that has been chilled. It’s citrus, cherries and a floral red wine. The dry-down is tons of violet powder and musk. I’ve sniffed this dry-down in other 4160 Tuesdays scents. It seems to be in this brand’s DNA – powdery, raspberry/violet musk.
Fruits of the Tree of Knowledge is a fun fragrance. It’s fruity without being really juvenile (like a body spray you’d buy at the mall). The musk and bitter sandalwood keep it from coming across that way.
Notes listed include grapefruit, lemon, yuzu, cucumber, watermelon, cherry, rose, raspberry, violet and sandalwood. Launched in 2014. PERFUMER – Sarah McCartney
