I got this for a Christmas gift quite a few years ago and am just now getting it finished. Anyway, this is/was slightly bold yet not overbearing, a little sexy, and slightly floral all combined imo. Fragrantica lists the main accords as floral, powdery, warm spicy, woody, and musky, and I agree with that. Although the powdery accord for me would be at the bottom of the list and I would say imho: warm spicy floral musky woody powdery (ever so slight!!) Really surprised that fragrantica has Pear listed as the top note, as I do not detect much pear, if at all...? I do agree with the white pepper note listed, but not the green note listed. *sigh* Perhaps my sniffer is off..? I definitely detect the spicy notes and the rose notes. I definitely agree with the base notes listed as sandalwood, musk and patchouli, so if you are not a fan of those base notes, you probably would not care for this perfume. To me this is great for a date night, fall or winter scent, although could be worn in the summer, too. I would not wear this to work or to school or around anyone with allergies or asthma or a sensitive nose, as there are some strong notes/accords in this. One spray is sufficient. And while this is somewhat powerful at first spray, it does not last very long. Within about 3 or 4 hours, I can barely detect the scent on me. So that was a bit of a bummer. But for what I would use it for, date nights or weddings and the like, it was okay to only have it last a few hours...But if I wanted this to last all day, I likely would definitely have took this down to 3 stars/3 lippies...I did always get lots of compliments when wearing this, so there is that!! :) I enjoyed having this and using it up, but would not re-purchase or ask for it again. I have just moved on from this one. It was nice, but nothing really special to hold my interest to make me want to get it again.
