I'm a sucker for a bargain and when my local Priceline had this for $5 I couldn't resist. I knew it wasn't really the best perfume for me but at that price I figured why not. After reading all the negative reviews I was pleasantly suprised. On me this is a very bright, greenish, slightly sharp gardenia. I can see why people are comparing it to hairspray or bug spray at first. It does have a harsh screechy quality to it. Luckily this fades on me in 5 minutes and I am simply left with a very simple gardenia with lemony green overtones. It lasts a good 4-5 hours on my skin and if I want it to last all day, I simply layer it with Jovan Musk for women. This also tones down the sharpness.
The bottle is simple, quite elegant and a bit of fun with the fairy on it. Easy to hold, easy to spray, easy to store.
There's not much else to add. Yes, it is linear, yes it is sharp, yes it does have a slightly synthetic smell, particularly at the beginning, but I still think it's worth testing on the skin (smells crap on the paper strip).
So who would this be good for? I would suggest anyone who likes gardenia but often finds it too heavy. Also anyone who likes fragrances with sharp green top notes.
Edit: I forgot to add - my partner and both my cats love this on me. I've also been complimented on it by friends and strangers in the street. I'm going back to stock up while I can.
Edit: October 2015 - I have decided I really really like this. This is the perfect floral for really hot weather as it doesn't overpower, at least with my body chemistry. It has a lemony top note and always retains that bright, greenish quality. To me it feels like the perfume equivalent of a good gin and tonic - fizzy, fun, refreshing and just a little retro. Two thumbs up! I also want to add I've had quite a few compliments on it.
