About this deal

I heard someone say that it was an eau de fruit loop once, and I think that or lemon furniture polish pretty well sums up the INITIAL top note. This smells very clean, without being neither powdery nor soapy (I especially do not care for powdery). I like that it smells fresh but I cannot deny that it does remind me of the lemon scent you get from some common household cleaning products. This fragrance is a tribute of 1902 to the dukes of Marlborough and their Blenheim Palace, donated in 1704 by Queen Anne to John Churchill, first duke of Marlborough, as a reward for the homonymous victory against the French.

The lavender evens out the citrus in a meaningful way before the pepper and pine base show you why this lemon pledge scent has been popular for so long. It might make a great gift because of its associations with the British nobility, although you can get other quite similar fragrances probably for much cheaper. It took me hours of concentrated effort to tape up the windows, as was suggested, along with air-ducts and door cracks. I imagine this is what the more gentlemanly characters in Hitchcock films would have smelled like, before Hitchcock went Hollywood.Very nice, fresh scent, but I like my fresh scents to be a bit more complex OR have good performance OR be cheapies. It's more of a masculine scent– as much as this fragrance unlocked something inside me- it's not a perfume I'd wear. It's not obviously woody, as in a specific wood, but instead this is a great example of a very good composition.

However this one smells exactly like some taps my mom used to desolve in hot water and make me inhale when I had a cold.

I feel like I must be suppressing a memory of smelling this on someone who acted terribly, unforgivably, because why do I intensely dislike this objectively tame and pleasant scent?
