I had high hopes for my first foray into the line of Arquiste perfumes which launched this past year. Unfortunately, L’Etrog does not generate a great deal of enthusiasm in me. This is not a bad fragrance, it’s just a nice fragrance. Upon application, you receive a nice rush of citrus. Like most citrus scents, it’s clean and fresh. The sharpness of the citrus quickly moves to the background and you are what I am assuming is the date fruit that is listed in the notes. This scent is very familiar to me. It doesn’t remind me of anything specific, but that means I can’t really distinguish it from other like-minded scents. Unfortunately, after a couple of hours this really just vanished on me. I am still holding out hope for some of the other Arquiste fragrances as I’m a hopeless optimist.
