Snob starts with sparkling, almost metallic, cold flowery, crisp fruity notes with a touch of saffron. As Snob dries further down, medium bright rosy note appears, if I imagine a color, it's creamy white. The rose is backed up with classical white flowers. Soon the note that seems to be the twist of this fragrance shows up; the tangy, sour and almost citric note of tagets, a great contrast to the rest of this well behaved floral mix. The tagets makes me think of Montale Aoud Red Flowers a darker and denser, more distinkt floral-woody-oriental fragrance featuring the not so common flower (in perfume); tagetes.
The flowery, sparkling coolness remains during the whole drydown of Snob. The base is bright as rest of the fragrance, woody-musky without powdery notes.
