The trouble with Matthew seems to be just one of location
and timing; wrong place, wrong time.
He is, it’s true, never far away when things go awry.
Educated, he gallantly takes the blame without contestation and
is mildly surprised to cause such a nuisance for the actions of his
delightful twin sister. And so he contemplates the sky, a dandelion,
or a muddy gate for hours, to forget the latest bother with Nanny.
He really can’t remember putting dead frogs in her bed, but if
Flora says he did, why argue…?
First appearances can be deceptive. This eau de parfum
has a pedigree that is unexpected. Mandarin is open and fresh
and sparkling, patchouli gives a base that is rich and darkening.
In between it’s also breezy, dazzling, vibrant, a lesson in the very
best of modern refinement. Easy-going and confident, this is a
fresh fragrance of consequence.
