Elsewhere on the internet, I've seen rave reviews calling this a hidden treasure, a unique fragrance concealed by a kitschy name. I'm sad to say that I disagree. However, my impression is so different from everyone else's, it's possible that my sample is stale.
The listed notes are orange flower, rose, night-blooming jasmine, white musk, and sandalwood. However, all I get is a carnation soliflore that starts off sharp but turns watery within in hour. I still rated it a 3, though, because it's certainly not a perfunctory, Bath and Body Works type of fragrance, nor is it bad. It just doesn't suit my tastes.
If you're not familiar with carnation, it's actually a pretty weird smell, more like a spice than a floral. It's like someone took a "skin tone" band-aid and put a couple of black peppercorns and cloves on it. Personally, I don't like it as the main note in a fragrance, although it can be an interesting supporting player. (I hate calling those band-aids "skin tone," since that's basically saying that only light skin is okay. But I don't know what else to call them.)
Nevertheless, other people seem to get the listed notes from this. So, it's probably best to try it and make up your own mind.
So, if I think that you need to try this one out instead of relying on reviews, why did I bother reviewing it? I.... I DON'T...KNOW. continued >>
