Bullfrog Fire: New from 2022

Hi there Posse Crew. Bullfrog is a new to me crew of barbers from Italy and Fire is one of their newest perfume releases. It’s a best smelling, worst named scenario. Bullfrog Fire smells NOTHING like fire, at all. What it does smell is REALLY good. It comes in my all time favourite perfume bottle too and the packaging is gorgeous but low key and almost 100% recyclable. Cool eh? Aimed at the boys but definitely unisex and I think they are really missing a trick by aiming it anywhere other than everywhere.

My sample came from an Aussie crew LKNU as a GWP.

Bullfrog Fire

Parfumo gives these featured accords:
Top: Lemon zest, Mandarin orange
Heart: Blackcurrant, Mint
Base: Oakmoss, Patchouli

So, how does Bullfrog Fire smell?

Opening is sweet and tart citruses. They are so juicy. It tastes in my mouth and made it water in anticipation. The citruses stay right through the heart and are given a delightfully refreshing hit of mint that takes the whole fragrance to another level. If you are in the northern hemisphere and missing the warmth and sunlight of summer then I reckon Fire will give you an instant lift.

I don’t know if your family ever does punch? The heart of Fire is a reminiscing serenade to summer picnics and pool parties where the champagne/vodka fruity mint punch flowed and even us kids were allowed to have some. yeah, I know, times have changed.

Dry down is still very slightly minty citrus but a clean patchouli and laundry musks seem to dominate. I’m searching for the oak moss but it doesn’t make a showing to my nose. Maybe it’s the humid Sydney heatwave we are experiencing.

If Annick Goutal Ninfeo Mio is your jam then I think you will fall madly in love with Fire.

Does Bullfrog Fire sound like something you could and would wear?

    I think I might like this one. Sounds like it would be a great spritz and go in warmer weather. If someone asked me what perfume I was wearing, I don’t think I could keep a straight face though when telling them – Bullfrog Fire!

  • March says:

    That name is so odd — makes me think of a bullfrog on fire which is … not a pleasant thought. However, I think the packaging looks really cool and it sounds like it smells great, I would wear this.

    This sound delightfully refreshing, Portia. Too bad they didn’t name it Pool Party Punch, right?

    You drew me in with the citrussy goodness, then rained on my parade with mint.
    Mint in fragrance takes me back to a mint massage I was given to cure a migraine in the 90’s when aromatherapy was a thing. It didn’t work & left me avoidant of mint in fragrance.
    I sound a right baby getting headaches from musk & mint!

    • Portia says:

      Alityke,
      Our bodies tell us things. we should listen.
      Thank everything the selection of fragrance without mint and musks is pretty broad.

    Hmmm. Love Ninfeo Meo. And the name of this made me laugh. It’s findable here at some men’s outfit called Carter and Bond (100ml for £50 — so a relative bargain). Family never did punch. Like never ever. We were offered wine from mid-teens because my mother was European and thought not doing so was barbaric and would lead to binge drinking later.

    • Portia says:

      We were given wine for the same reason Cinnamon, I still binge drank for a few years.
      50 quid sounds like a real bargain, till I do the crossover into Oz$$
