I know many people have said this doesn't smell right on them, particularly that it smells like play doh. However, this scent worked great for me with my pH and smells delicious. I've not worn a gourmand scent in so long and get so many compliments when I wear this scent. Men seem to really love scents like this that are warm and nostalgic. Most perfumes smell pretty true on me, if you don't have an issue with most perfumes changing their notes or smelling somewhat different on you, I don't think you will have the issue of your skin pH not blending well with the scent. It is truly a great date night scent, I love to spray some on when I hop out of the shower and get pjs on, such a comforting smell even just for myself before bed. Feels cozy and luxurious. The dry down is lovely and it has a medium sillage on me. You have to be fairly close to me to smell it, but not right up in my bubble, so it isn't an overwhelming sweet scent by any means for those around you. This would be a perfect scent for a night in with someone, date night, fall and winter, those who love gourmand scents, people in specific fields like teachers would get a great smell reaction from younger children feeling comfortable around the smell, it's just overall a very comforting, warm, nostalgic scent. I think it is a definite must in a well rounded scent library to have one scent like this. Primarily vanilla with that light touch of heliotrope making it just a bit lighter and not overwhelming. I would buy a full bottle of this in the future easily.
