Close to you...
Gap is launching a new fragrance to their scent library on April 23 2009.
It is called Close.
The top notes are a transparent water accord, almond blossom and a salty citrus accord. It settles into a floral explosion of spring Freesia, Jasmine petals, Daphne, and dewey Stephanotis.
I will be quite frank...water notes and I do not mix well.
Water notes morph into something cucumber-like on my skin.
It is not pretty.
But the Gap had me at the Daphne note. Daphne is heavenly. It is lily-like with some smoke and earth thrown in. This alone will get me in the store to check this out.
The dry down of Close is fairly standard with Sandalwood, Musk, Vanilla Tonka and amber.
This fragrance will be available in 100 ml. ($35.00)
50 ml ($25.00)10 ml. ($8.50) at your local Gap store.
If anyone has sniffed this let us know in the comments.
