This is not an everyday fragrance that I wear, I like the scent, but it's not in my daily rotation. It's more of an evening fragrance for me. Out of the fragrances that i have (i had him sit down one day and smell the scents and give me first impressions of them) this was the only one my husband described to smell sexy. I usually wear lighter sweet scents. I keep it only because he says he likes it on me and I wear this on special evenings out.
I loved it. It is kind of pricey but it smells sooo good, its totally worth it.
I smelled this on someone and instantly had to know what she was wearing. I loved the hints of vanilla, orange, and woods that make this fragrance so lovely. This perfume has tremendous staying power (one spray is ALL you need, trust me!) And the bottle is absolutely gorgeous. The only warning I have to offer is to be sure to try this on before you purchase it...I've had a few people say that it smells like body odor when it mixes with their personal chemistry.
Edit: I would recommend this as a night scent...it may be a bit overpowering in the day (especially in the summer).
This is the worst perfume I've ever smelled! UGH! It's very masculine to me and does not work at all with my feminine chemistry! It was very strong and even when I went to wash it off it just would not go away! Thank heavens that I only received a sample of it. I would never buy it. I may try it again just to test and be sure. I did try it late in the evening before taking my nightly shower/bath...so I may give another try since I see so many raving reviews.... I'll let you know how it goes!
Update: This fragrance is not for me. I tried it on two more times since my original post and nothing changed. It's so strong on me. It gives me an awful smell. Would never buy this or recommend it to anyone.
Sigh...I loved this fragrance when I tried it on at the counter. Just spritzed a bit into the air and ran one wrist through it. It turned into something spicy and warm and delicious on me, and had great lasting power. But then my husband got into the car and got a raging headache from it and said it was WAY too strong. Even with the very little I was wearing. So I can't buy it or wear it. Sigh.
So, four lippies for how great it was, but not a five because it can be overpowering.
This scent makes me feel really good. Its definately a going out fragrance. love the way it smells on me.
my boyfriend bought me this for christmas because he loved how it smelled. as for myself, i had never sniffed it before he bought it so i was a little worried i wasn't going to like it! thankfully i don't just like it i LOVE it. as others have mentioned it's very sexy, but not sexy in a overt or "this is what sexy is supposed to smell like" way. i love the way it unfolds on my skin, i think the ginger note is my favorite. it's very strong, just 1 or 2 sprays is enough to get me through the day (which is good since it's expensive). and the bottle is to die for, it's so pretty! but despite how much i love it, since it is the beginning of june i think i'm going to put it away until it gets a little colder. i've tried wearing it out at night but it's still a little too much for summer. i can't wait til the weather cools down a little so i can wear this again!
Whew! On me, this smelled just like a drugstore perfume from the 80s called "Exclamation". Powdery, sickeningly sweet... I thought the bottle was sooo pretty, and I was excited about receiving my sample after reading all the raves on here, but alas, it shall go to my mother (who will drown herself in it).
I'm going to keep it brief. This scent is sexy as hell. Sometimes a bit strong but the boys seem to love it. A little goes a long way but I am excessive and go through it quickly..spraying it all over me and my clothes. The packaging is beautiful but sometimes the cap annoys me. Travels well. A bit too expensive but yet somehow I keep coming back for more :)
this stuff smells so sophisticated to me. i love it. i love oriental scents though-woody, floral, all of them. it lasts a pretty long time too and the bottle is so pretty. its definitely a keeper. it can easily be overpowering and too strong, but if worn properly, its beautiful.
