Love the bottle. Smells much better than the original. Anyone ever smell Vanilla Fields? This smells just like it. After about an hour I swear all I could smell was something similar to those cedar wood pieces you use to keep moths away. I have always like the way those smelled though, but that is just me.
I had to go make a special trip to smell this at the department store just for kicks because of all the bad reviews. I read in the Allure magazine that this fragrance was given 5 stars by some big wig perfumer/reviewer. What a contridiction with all the bad reviews here but getting a 5 star rating by a professional. All I have to say is YUCK, YUCK and triple YUCK. This smelled like the dirt in my aunts yard where her dogs run. Something very rotten and off. However...I have not been able to stop smelling it! It smells horrible to me, but I keep taking a whiff of it and I don't know why! It is like there is some sort of pheromone in it that has me wanting more even though it smells like dirty armpit. That is truly what it smells like...like a person has body ordor and they have put some powder on to cover it up but it isn't really doing the job. It comes out a mix of body odor and powder. When I took the first whiff at the store, I said out loud "disturbing". And that is exactly what this fragrance is---disturbing.

Smells exactly like Jamaica at night. There is night blooming jasmine growing everywhere and when the sun sets, the ocean breeze picks up the jasmine scent and the two combined turns into the most amazing fragrance all across the island. Fresh, sexy, carefree. The original BM is my all time favorite and this comes in a close second. As I stated in my original BM review...I can now stop the search for the perfect fragrance. I have found #1 in the original BM and #2 in Fleurs De Nuit. Whoever was behind these two scents is brilliant.
Heaven on Earth. This is the fragrance I have been looking for my whole life. I think I can finally stop the search :)

Yum Yum Yum Yum. This is the sexiest perfume! I was walking thru Nordstrom a few months ago and right before I walked out the door, a perfume lady tied a ribbon sample of this scent around my wrist. I didn't think much of it at that time. It was a bit strong for my normal liking but I was on my lunch break and had to get back to work. I didn't think much of it the rest of the day. As a matter of fact I forgot about it. Come the end of the day and the ribbon had fallen off my wrist. I get in my car and keep smelling something so heavenly but can't figure out what it is! Well after a few days I finally find the ribbon between my seats and it dons on me that is what I had been smelling. I have been wearing it everyday since and I get compliment after compliment. My husband who is the pickiest man on earth when it comes to perfume (his all time fav is Happy by Clinique--booooring!) absolutely loves it so it must be good! I am not an expert on the whole fragrance notes, etc but to me this is a musky, womenly, sexy scent! I have to agree with someone earlier who said her man said it smells like pure sex. It kinda does...in a good way though. The sweet way :)
All I have to say is: I cannot believe they made a perfume that smells like this. I usually just read the reviews, but the horrible smell of this perfume compelled me to write my first one. I love perfumes, have a ton of it myself and you will often find me lingering around the fragrance counters but I am not an expert in the "note" department. This scent, however, just smells wrong! ALL wrong. The only word I can think of to describe it is "chemically" (is that even a word? LOL, I am sure you get my drift). Oh here is another one "astringent". Ok, hope my first review was not a flop. It was fun...maybe I will start doing it more!
