Mistral Grapefruit Red Currant or “Pamplemousse” is described as “a lively, uplifting citrus fragrance“. Grapefruit Red Currant is a tart fruity-citrus fragrance with transparent florals.
Mistral Grapefruit Red Currant opens with grapefruit and tangy red currants. It does become floral. I get soft lemon blossom and an anemic jasmine. It’s a “light” floral but sharp. I can barely smell it on me at all. It’s gone within 10 minutes, but you guys have heard that my skin loves to “eat” citrus. And I think the grapefruit could “turn” on me if I could smell it long enough. What this scent needs is a base or something to make it last longer.
Mistral Grapefruit Red Currant is a pretty enough fragrance, from what I can smell, but not interesting. It’s sheer and watery. It’s temporary strength reminds me of a body splash, not an EDP.
Notes listed include yellow grapefruit, tangy red currants, white jasmine, lemon blossom, and freesia.
Give Mistral Grapefruit Red Currant a try if you like very light citrus florals or fragrances like Pacifica Lemon Blossom, L’Artisan Parfumeur La Chasse aux Papillons, Clean Shower Fresh, Dior Addict 2, and/or Kio Kio Citrus Petal & Tarata Body Mist.
An 1.7 bottle of Mistral Grapefruit Red Currant EDP retails for $50. It is available at B-Glowing.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – This is an “upscale” Bath and Body Works creation. It makes me a little sad to see such a “yawner” from Mistral. Oh, well. It seems that most lines have one. I’m not interested in owning a bottle.
