The smell - on me, this starts off as a very sweet baby powder smell, but it has a really earth bite with a hint of crispness. It is wonderfully complex. In the dry down, it gets more earthy and a lot of the baby powder scent calms down and smooths out. I can't get enough of it. It is wonderfully warm and cozy, I think someone likened it to wearing your boyfriends jumper, which is very very true. The sweetness has subtle masculinity about it too. It sounds ridiculous to say something so sweet is masculine, but it does have a hint of maleness about it.
The bottle is gorgeous, the sweet little purple apple with the pretty writing on it, I love it. However it is a bit annoying that the stalk of the apple doesn't really have a cap, it would be annoying if you wanted to carry a little bottle around in your bag for touch ups during the day.
The first time I wore this, I found that the silage was actually pretty poor. I could smell it on myself, but no one around me could smell it on me, which was a bit disappointing as I like my perfumes to be relatively strong. I had read reviews that this was a pretty strong perfume, so I only wore two half spritses of it. I might have to amp it up a bit and go for two full ones.
Lovely fragrance but wayyy too sweet & heavy for me, so I couldn't wear it & I gave it away to my sister. Love the dainty apple-shape bottle, but the fragrance was just unwearable to me, even in the dry wintertime. I wish the bottle was re-usable, I would have loved to fill it with a different fragrance.
Wow, this one is really unique, like an apple from wonderland, illusion, magical, mysterious without being "old lady". Its a bit warm, linger, embrace ur skin. I dont know how to describe its heavenly notes, u have to feel it by urself. It would be love!
I seriously can't believe I once enjoyed the smell of this! The perfect way to describe this scent would be if Sweet 'N Low made perfume this would be it!!! Sooo impossibly sweet it could give you diabetes!!
I love this.
All through high school my best friend wore this and I loved how it smells on her. But this smells not so wonderful on me for some reason. Maybe because of body temprature?? I wish this worked like it does on her... on her, it smells so unique and comfortable, definitely more of incense smell. On me, kind of just sweet and powdery... and I don't like powdery perfume!!
Also another reason I can't call this on my HG is how people comment.
I get a lot of "smells like sweets" or "smells like baby powder".......those don't make me very happy.
But still I love this and wear a lot. Such a romantic and intimate scent.
I even wear in summer.
I'm half way through on my 1.7oz bottle and thinking to get a bigger bottle.
Probably won't wear as much since it's getting warm but I'd like to have it around. It makes a great room fragrance too. In that way, it smells more closer to how it did on my friend which I like.
i got a cute sampler of this from nordstrom when i purchased another perfume; it came with a mini bottle, bodywash and lotion... from the sample it seems like a nice scent but very woody and oriental.. if youre into those scents then this is a nice addition to your collection. i much rather prefer florals, so ill finish this sample i guess but i wont spring for the full sized version (i have many others id rather get!! lol)
I got a sample from Sephora, so I dont know about price or anything, and I actually have grown to like the scent, but......trend lightly. This is some strong stuff :)
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! This is a sultry, sexy scent that I usually reserve for either Winter or evenings out. My husband is addicted to this and raves over it. I absolutely love this scent. So you can get an idea of the notes I like, my other faves are Victor and Rolf Flowerbomb and Chanel Coco Mademoiselle.
This doesn't seem like a remake of Angel to me, but like a remake of Poison (the original). Even the apple-shaped purple bottle is similar. It is sweeter than Poison, in keeping with current tastes, but it has a similar decadent feel. Like Poison, I like it a lot, although I can't quite figure out why--both fragrances have many notes I usually dislike.
Awesome. I wear it when I want to come across as smart and sharp yet chipper. I am in love with the salty licorice and fresh herbs and sweet dry down. Not particularly sexy or beautiful, but rather LOVELY with BRAINS. Interesting, too.
