This thing smells DISGUSTING when I first put it on. I get moldy fruit from it mostly. It must be just my chemistry because even though I'm not a coconut fan, I wouldn't mind coconut instead of the whiff of wet socks. Having said that, the dry down is very pleasant. I smells a pretty authentic fig and it would make a lovely fall scent.
The packaging is beautiful- very glam. The lipstick however has no lasting power, and looks a bit cheap on me. Also the smell is too strong- I can smell it as I'm wearing it.
ow, this one is no joke:) I get a pungent tobaco and pine opening which in this case is not a bad thing, because it quickly transforms to leather, with a touch of animalistic scent to it. I gather from the reviews here that quite a few gals wear it, but frankly I don't have the balls to pull it off, no pun intended:) Still I would love to smell it on other people, just not myself. It's an interesting one for sure.
All I get is grape and soap...It has a really slight violet note that is overtaken by the soapy scent on my skin, it's almost like an afterthought. Someone got a predominant Bulgarian Rose which I didn't get AT ALL. It's way too sharp for my tastes, i like my scents to mellow on dry-down which this does not, like it's rebelling against my chemistry. I appreciate the bottle though. Sigh, off to find a violet that suits me...
