This was a recommended to me as a less expensive alternative to my HG Hypnotic Poison by Dior. The bottle is quite lovely and modern but the fragrance did not remind me of Hypnotic Poison at all.
I got a lot of heavy soapy musk with some rose and a little vanilla. The musk was so overpowering it gave me a headache. It wasn't smooth and well blended like HP. My boyfriend didn't like this on me. I gave it to my mother, she was thrilled.
At first I really liked this fragrance. Now, I can only smell clean baby diapers/wipes. It's that soft, powdery, sweet baby type scent. It got on my nerves after a while & I had to give it away. continued >>
This was recommended by a Sales Assistant when i asked for a longer lasting, heavier scent for the Winter/Autumn. He was 100% spot on with his pick. It is lovely and have received a couple of compliments too.
I'm no good at describing the scents or notes, but it is more of an everyday perfume than an occasion one. It is kind of sweet, but lovely. Worth a try.
Love the packaging & bottle. Very unusual. continued >>
I received a sample of this from Sephora a few years ago. I immediately got the full sized. I think this fragrance reads well during the fall and winter months but might be too overpowering for summer. I find that I get tired of wearing this if I wear it too many days in a row. The plus side is I get lots of compliments on it when I wear it. It is not my favorite but I will finish the rest in the bottle. Will not repurchase when it is finished.
Oh, this is so good. I absolutely love this warm, cozy scent for fall. It has terrific lasting power and my mom who normally hates all the fragrances I wear yelled from the bathroom the morning after I got it in the mail, in a very urgent tone, "WHAT DID YOU SPRAY THAT SMELLS LIKE HEAVEN.?!" She always asks to borrow it if I'm doing her hair/makeup before she goes out. However, it's not for everyone, including my boyfriend, who hates it :( which is why I won't repurchase... except perhaps the small $25 vial that looks like a rollerball.. because this is just such a comforting fragrance. It is vanilla-ey, but not in a foody or candy way. It's a mature and different warm scent - I get vanilla, sandalwood, an unusual milky rice note and spice, and it just makes me want to make a hot chocolate and relax by a crackling fire.
This perfume brings back really wonderful memories. My bottle is empty but I still have a very small sized one that was supposed to be a sample. I love the smell and it just puts me in a good mood. I can't really pinpoint the exact scents found in this perfume, but based on other reviews it contains vanilla and rice scents; I can actually smell those.
I would recommend getting this, it smells lovely.
One of my favourite perfumes. On me this is all vanilla and rice, not a super sweet vanilla but a more tempered one. It's a very warm, comforting fragrance, and makes me feel happy whenever I smell it. As a vanilla lover, I absolutely adore this.
I like this nearly as much as Kenzo Flower, but not quite as much. It's similar in being a soft powdery floral oriental with great sillage, but this one becomes cloying for me sometimes. It is sweeter with the vanilla, whereas Flower has a little dose of pepper which calms the sweetness. With both it is very easy to over do so just one or two sprays is more than enough. As an alternative I really like the shower gel which is exactly like the perfume but doesn't last. The body lotion also is very good, long-lasting, and more of a skin scent.
LOVE this - it's warm, woody, sensual, sexy - can't say enough good things about this scent..funny thing, I put it on for work one morning, went to the gym that evening, started sweating and it made me smell delicious while I was working out lmao...between this and Kenzo's "Flower", I'm all set
It's one of my most favorite perfumes, not overpowering and just right. Love the bottle designs too and I kept them once finished and line them up like a trophy. Will always buy again and again..
