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.
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?
