Very strong scent when first sprayed on, but unfortunately wears off as the day goes on. The scent was still nice if I held my wrist up close to me at the end of the day but alas not one single compliment on this fragrance from anyone else. In fact, when asking someone else to test it out they turned their nose as it is a very strong fragrance up front. Definitely a musk smell that you'll pick up on first before the tulip. More like a spicy tulip than flowery bloom as the name implies. But it is a nice clean fragrance, and overall I liked it, but not something I would purchase, especially for the retail price.
