The Perfect Perfume for Any Occasion
There is the bright burst of lemon when you first spray it on and then it softens up becoming lightly floral with a sandalwood warmness to it. You think that it becomes muted as it becomes harder to pick up the notes, but trust me, they are there. The notes of it seem to be more summery/springy, but I am surprised how well it wears in the wintertime. I have been wearing this in the middle of winter, and thought that the scent had worn off until I walked outside in the freezing cold. What surprised me was how the silage really picked up outside and how I picked up notes that I thought that had long since faded or weren't there. The spiciness, the warmth, and the lovely florals. All were there surrounding me. For me, this perfume works. It has become my signature scent - it lies close to my skin, radiates warmth - both subtle and head-turning. And I think that is the purpose of the perfume - it isn't supposed to be an "in-your-face" over-the-top erotic scent, heavy in vanilla, amber or patchouli. It is supposed to be closer, more intimate, seemingly to be a scent that you naturally radiate. I love it. If you get a new scent, wear it for a few days so that you can get used to it and enjoy that all that it has to offer. I find it laughable that people call this an "old-lady scent," usually a scathing insult reserved for perfumes that have civet, rose, or violet notes - all of which I love and this perfume hasn't any of those notes. This instead is very much a modern, very clean smelling perfume, like most of Versace's perfumes for women are. Very much like a French soap-clean scent to it.
