The Top Shelf: English Breakfast by Mark Buxton
A few weeks ago I was at ScentBar and tried Anat Fritz, on the bottom shelf of of the mens section. Since what I was going to write about this week sort of flamed out I'm going with plan B; one from their top shelf which holds the lightest and most approachable ones.
English Breakfast is light and approachable in spades. It's clean with a capital "K". It's not that it's bad, mind you. It's s nice bright bergamot with s hint of dry woods. But I find that when you have to start making up stories of English businessmen on the bullet train to Kyoto eating a bento box and contemplating his day then you have a scent that isn't saying it for you. Since the scent has been marked down from $140 to $110 for 100ML perhaps I'm not the only one who feels that way.
At LuckyScent, where I asked for the sample, and where I'm going back to the lower shelves.
