Sweet, juicy, peachily honey-like:  nectarines have been dripping their bright fruitiness over quite a few compositions, of late, riding on the popularity of fruity-florals.  (Nectarine goes particularly well with fruity notes, actually.)  Can anyone who’s not a trained ‘nose’ tell the difference between this and an actual peach?  Yes, if we eat it:  nectarines are of course smooth-skinned, and have a whiter flesh.  But in a perfume…?  We’d love to hear if you can tell them apart. (Though we do also invite you to improve your sense of smell through one of our nationwide workshops for subscribers – click here for details.)
