This is a really lovely scent, bright when it first hits your skin and drying down into something slightly sweet and warm, but the lemon and bergamot remain present even as the scent warms up. On me, the citrus and vanilla notes are the most noticeable. I don't get much of any wood notes, which I found somewhat disappointing. It fades quickly, but that may just be a sign that my chemistry isn't the best match for Colette. It's very lovely, perfect for those who like vanilla but can find it to be overpowering in most scents.
