|Soleil de Capri is not your run of the mill citrus perfume. In fact you can throw away everything you know about fresh fragrances before you smell this one. Imagine you're by the beach on an island off the coast of Italy drinking a glass of champagne on a chaise lounge next to a bouquet of white orchids. This is the essence of Soleil de Capri, or sun of Capri. It doesn't read sport in the least, and it's another exquisite example of Pierre Montale creating an original scent that smells completely new with just a few typical ingredients. Grapefruit and kumquat give the sensation of walking through gently crashing waves with bare feet, while white flowers and white musk act like a bed of pillows to fall into when the sun goes down. The effect of the pairing is a muffling of the lemony edge, the addition of a soft, rich, and inviting body, and crystal clear distinction between top, middle, and base notes. You'll have to smell Soleil de Capri for yourself, but there's something else about it, something sparkling, fizzy even, that's best represented by a refreshing, carbonated cocktail on a bright, sunny day. Soleil de Capri is an uplifting fragrance perfect for spring and summer that, unlike other fragrances in its class, doesn't skimp on intrigue.
