I have a nose that prefers something unique and I find this to be one of the favorite scents I own. This isn't something I would consider sheer or for everyday wear. It has a complexity and warmth to it considering its bright & fresh ingredients. I feel like this is for a special occasion, for a date with a man in his late 30's, or for a night at a classy joint. I does not smell like an old old lady as some of the reviews would have us believe. Many of those reviews come from girls in their early to mid 20's that just want to smell sweet, fun, & exude sex by the way of fruit for a night out at the clubs that many of us women are simply too old for. I'm 38 & perhaps that means I'm officially an old lady but this scent is extremely sensual. So if you're young and looking for something undeniably sexy & overly flirtatious this may not be what your nose (or crowd) considers suitable for you. But the word sensual does not mean in-your-face sexy. Sensuality is a branch of sexuality but can hold up on its own without having to be sexual as well. It means to be slow, alluring, soft, mysterious, and captivating all at once. It means you're secretly remembered as the one who offered something different to him by way of touch, a look, or even a scent. So to those that would argue this not to be a sensual scent, you are wrong. It is exactly that and perhaps you have yet to grow in to it or are just not a sensual person. But to those women who have ever been called sensual or prefer being those descriptive words I mentioned, this bottle is for you provided you understand this scent is not for everyday wear. It's for being sensual, not as a young girl, but as a woman. Beyond that, I didn't know how infatuated I'd become with blood orange scents until this. I've been clamoring around trying to find an everyday scent to match Stella's mood but still haven't come close. I wish they would make a Stella Sheer. Not that it's strong. It's really not. It just doesn't have a daily mood like sheers tend to have. Bottom line is unless you're a rare youth in that you like to come across as unique, more mature than your girlfriends, and find yourself at more well-to-do functions, leave this to the sensual women that keep their sexy subtle and know how to turn it on at will.
