Reminds me of a forest after a cleansing, cool rain
I really love this perfume as it is a great spring/summer scent. I would say the strength is medium, so strong enough to last but I would not label this a strong scent at all aside from a few seconds upon initial application. At first you really get the water notes and rosemary with an undertone from the oud. My daughter and I both said "This smells like a forest right after it rains" simultaneously. On dry down the ginger and grapefruit round it out with a bit of needed sweetness, but it is not cloying and the other 3 notes are still the stars of the show. I do not feel it smells powdery, as I am not really a fan of powdery perfumes. If it is then the fresh clean scent makes it take a back seat enough that I like this one. What I also love here is the lasting power. So many perfumes I love only last a short time on me. This one lasts all day. If your preference is floral or definitely fruity this is not it, but it doesn't claim to be.
