I love this smell of this..I don't have the fragrance so I can't compare but I've gotten compliments that I smell nice after stepping out of the shower after using this.
Dune is my signature scent and yet I don't include this when repurchasing.
The smell is not really the same as the other Dune products nor does it do anything spectacular as far as leaving a strong enough scent for layering.
For the cost it's not worth it..it's a waste.
For me at least.
