One of My All-Time Favorite Fragrances
This scent is one of my all-time favorite fragrances. I have read reviews that say it smells heavy and "old lady-ish" and I just don't get that at all. I have loved this scent for over ten years, and I find it to be light and deep at the same time. It smells exclusive to me, there is a richness to it, a depth, a warmth, yet a light floral aspect to it. Maybe because when I first bought it, the only place i could find it was Neiman Marcus, and it was on the pricier side, so it truly was an "exclusive, rich scent" in my books.
I have used scents that feel overpowering and heavy, so I am familiar with that type of fragrance, but this does not fall into that collection for me. This is a deep, rich, light and florally, yet musky and very feminine scent. I love it so much and will always have it in my collection. I smell it in layers, or stages, almost. I get the musky heavy notes immediately upon spraying it, and then, once that settles, I get the light, floral, feminine notes. Again, I was amazed at all the reviews that considered it a scent for an older lady, because I have never gotten that from it.
Obviously, this is a scent that differs vastly depending on one's body chemistry, so it's worth giving it a try. If you get what I get from it, you won't want to risk missing out on adding it to your collection. I have two bottles of it (the EDP and the EDT) and I am still going to order a travel size to throw in my purse, so I can always have it with me. It is just absolutely wonderful, and easily one of my all-time favorite fragrances ever. If my review inspires you to try it, please leave a review to share your experience with it. I'd love to know your thoughts because I just can't imagine anyone not loving it. :)
Well said. It drives me crazy to see “old lady” in a review. To me, they’re just too lazy or don’t know how to use other words to describe it.
