First, i'll address the packaging. for a fragrance that is so beautifully described by its manufacturer, you'd think a better decanter could be dreamt up. ah, well, maybe it's just me. after all, my signature fragrance, I Coloniali's Javanese Canaga has a horrendous bottle. :)
On to the fragrance. What does it smell like? Well, out of the bottle, it smells like a darker, syrupy Chanel No. 5 (and i hate Chanel No. 5). this is one of the worst tuberose renditions i've ever smelled. on me, it smells like.... a darker, syrupy Chanel No. 5! Yes! the only nice part about the fragrance was when it *finally* dried down, and it smelled like a darker, syrupy Chanel No. 5 with a bit of powdered rock candy mixed in. needless to say, i won't be buying more of this. continued >>
Smells just like Demeter Laundromat--has the same horrible lasting power, but costs about 3 times as much. Save your money.
