This fragrance was such a pleasant surprise for me. I've been going out of my way to pick samples that aren't the typical darker, date night type scents that I prefer. While there are woodsy notes to this scent, the mandarin and vanilla are very much present. The clary sage really grounds the fragrance and keeps it from being too sweet or too woody. I was very surprised by how much I enjoyed this smell as I haven't ever tried a scent with with apple tree in it before. I'm so glad I received this in April, it's a good springtime scent. It's lightly woody and sexy but fresh. As it is unisex, my husband tried it on as well. On him, the vanilla and cypress scents were more forward. On me, it's more of a fresh apple tree and mandarin based scent. Overall, I found this to be a lovely fragrance that I could see myself wearing to work or running errands during the day. I think I'm going to commit to a whole bottle of this for Spring and Summer.
