Day 289 of 365... Rain Day from Derek Lam 10 Crosby is made of neroli and vetiver, which are two of my favourite notes, so this fragrance made me very curious immediately when I read about it.
The neroli is incredibly beautiful and uplifting while the vetiver is more on the muffled, moist and thin side. It feels like two quite contrasting scents, but they still fit together really well. Together they create an interesting scent that makes me sniff on the back of my hand all the time to really experience it. The vetiver feels quite different compared to most other vetiver fragrances that I have and I don't know if it might be because the neroli is so prominent, but I love that it feels so unique and new to me.
In the beginning it's definitely the neroli that is the star, but it gets toned down after a while, letting the moist vetiver take more space. Rain Day is a very suitable name for this fragrance since it has such a "wet" scent.
A very different fragrance that with only two notes still feels very interesting, but sadly it doesn't have such great longevity. On my skin it's almost gone after 4-5 hours.
