Red, Yellow and Green Mandarin

It seems that Aniba has at last been able to send out her wonderful oils from Brazil to members of the Guild and Group .... for which in my package of goodies is the mandarins amongst others....I purchased Red and also received yellow sample from her and I recently replenished my green from another source.... I think it will be fun to open these oils and get my immediate reaction .... I will leave space for drydown notes later when I have a bit more time... I have just trotted to the organ and desk and retrieved my carving set to open the green seals that were protecting the cap.... okay which one first.... well I am curious about the red mandarin

Red Mandarin: - whoosh before I had barely taken off the tape a mouthwateringly rich aroma comes to greet me.... ripe luscious mandarin this seems to remind me of juice running down your chin when sinking teeth in to draw the soft pliable flesh and suck its sweet nectared juices.

Yellow Mandarin:- oooh this is different subtler mellow sharpness with an intense top note... delicious I am excited about this one.

Green Mandarin:- I love this one and have used it alot in nose now picks up the familiar unripe sharpness and clean hespiridic note of the green unripe fruit.....

off to do some drydown tests on these now....which won't take long LOL will post up later..
