Before trying Fresh Hesperides Grapefruit, I had only tried lip products from the brand, and I actually loved the citrus scent of their lip treatments so much I knew that this fragrance would be a hit as well. It is! For me, it is definitely a summer fragrance, and it captures both the sweetness and the tartness of grapefruit perfectly. There’s also a strong lemon element, as well as a floral base that is very subtle to me. The only thing that surprised me is that Fresh Hesperides Grapefruit is an Eau de Parfum, because it is very short-wearing on me and only lasts around 2 hours. I definitely recommend carrying it with you (maybe using a Travalo) to top up throughout the day.
I’m a little conflicted over my experience with Fresh Hesperides Grapefruit, because I absolutely adore the fresh, zesty scent but I really wish it lasted longer. However, there are matching products like shower gel and lotion available so I wonder if layering the scent would make a big difference. It’s also available in a candle!
There are a few other fragrances from the brand such as Sugar Lemon and Sugar Lychee, and I am curious to see how those compare, because so far everything I’ve tried from Fresh smells amazing. Do you love citrus scents?
