From the second I opened it I thought. GROSS!!! I hated the smell. I was not impressed at all, but I was out of my other stuff and figured ok, i'll give it a shot. I have to be honest, after being on me for about 20 min, the smell changed and I LOVED IT! I wouldn't say it's my goto, but I really do like this one, and everyone has stopped and said I smelled great today. SO, give this one a try.
