When receiving this fragrance, I was excited! I thought I'd take a chance and go with the positive side of the ratings, but unfortunately, I'm on the opposite side of the fence. The initial smell from the bottle was a bit fruity meets musk, but putting it on, I smelled all rose. I tried wearing this with different deodorant, thinking the combination was bad. No such luck. It definitely lingers all day, so if you like smelling like a rose bouquet, this would be perfect for you. It's just not a chemical match for me.
