ok. I Think this is a BBW fragrance that did not get picked up to be distributed nationally. I think it was tested in some stores. Anyway, if you like Clinique Simply, you will like this.
It is a lovely spice that, while not very strong or long lasting on the skin, seems to linger on my clothing. I was catching the scent about 8 hours after putting it on. I think it would be best for a casual Fall/Winter but it could work in warm weather too because it is not too strong. I bought a few bottles of it on ebay and I'm glad I did. It is unusual, but very nice.

Lovely licorice with spice notes, but as my husband hates the smell of black licorice, I'm giving it to my sister. I like it a lot though. Mild and sweet without being cloying or brash, and it doesn't smell like Halloween candy. Nice for a licorice scent.

Description: "Created by master perfumers, exotic spices are given mysterious depth with distinctive notes of Masala chai tea, davanna flower and cardamom."
This is from the signature collection from BBW but I cannot seem to locate any information online. There were several other from this same line that were very intriguing including Lemon Watermint, Indian Vetyver, Wildflower Tea, Creamy Fig Nectar, Vanilla Woods, an Orchid scent and a Neroli scent. This one won out as my favorite.
This is a unique yet familiar spicy, creamy scent. The humid heat of summer seems to work very well with it but doesn't create something too heady. In the beginning, there is cool anise followed by sharp cardamom. A half hour later, this melts into the skin to become a warm, almost musky skin scent while the scent on my clothes and in my hair retains a fair amount of spice not unlike Opium. The cardamom remains throughout. It is melancholly and warm.
I am very pleased BBW is veering away from the typical foodie/floral, overplayed and tiresome notes of their original signature collection and creating scents that are more refined and unusual. I think I may have to go back to purchase more from this line.
