Just a plain but pleasant Tuberose. Does not offend, but a little boring, like Child. I do love the bottle though. I prefer Malles Carnal Flower, but this one will do as a everyday scent in the summer. Buy the Black Gardenia instead.

Bubblegum? I don`t get bubblegum at all. First blast is strong but it mellows out into a sweet long lasting true gardenia. Yes I can imagine Stevie Nicks wearing this,singing Gold Dust Woman, in her younger years and now. I like it better than Kai, Monyette or Child. I`ll buy it again.
OMG This is IT! I can`t speak, this fragrance brings tears to my eyes. I`ll buy all I can find! A really true flower scent,,,fresh and real. True class
At first whiff I loved it. But it stayed the same, I love the way most Serge morphs,,, this one doesn`t. I got bored. Sorry Serge
Good grief, hit me with Hawaii, give me a pina colada, and add some of those almonds that you get at weddings,,,you know all wrapped up, not to eat but to save. Oh you think I was going to diss this one ,,,no! I love it!
The first time I sampled this one I scrubbed it off after 5 minutes. The second time I waited out the first blast of something very perfumy and strong. Oh my, it softened into the most delicious rich rose bouquet...I`m in love. When it dies down (about 1-2 hours later) add a spritz of Malles Lipstick Rose. You`ll be good all day and won`t want to try anything else! EVER!
I really wanted to love this one. I took a hot tub, spritzed it on, and bingo it was gone, zip nada nothing just a little green. *sigh* Shalini is still my HG of white flowers. I really wanted Carnal Flower to rule as it`s a little less expensive. I`ll try it again and hope for the best. Edit: Months and many tries later,I`ve changed my mind and now I`m in love. Fresh and green at the start, it drys down to a soft beautiful (expensive smelling)floral.
I get just green green green, nothing else, no rose no carnation, nada. I think I`m having a bad day. I`ll try it again.
I hate musk, but I really don`t smell it here. I get woods, several, cedar sandalwood and rose(just a touch) and a very soft powder. This one just gets better with each wearing. I`ll buy it over and over. A soft fragrance that lasts forever, spray it on before bed and a light touch is there in the morning. I can`t wait to try it in the fall or winter. I love the way Lorenzo Villoresi fragrances go through at least three distinct phases.
Spend a day at a Spa, a mud bath, herbal wrap, mineral salts. Piper Nigrum make me feel pampered and cared for. I love it.

I`ve waited all my life for a fragrance so true and pure. This is the perfect spring and summer fragrance. Not to sweet not to bitter. Between this, Shalini and LV Garofano I`m set to go until fall.
