ok. Why am I not crazy for this fragrance?
I think it may be for the reason that others like it. It is too light and sweet for me. It reminds me of old fashioned "toilet water/splash". It definitely will not overpower the wearer, unless it is bathed in, but I just find it boring and not original.
It does not smell like amber to me......almost like a light musk.
I do …

Oh BBW......they seem to have a knack for putting some great fragrances on the back burner. I really like this. It smells like a fresh peeled tangerine to me on the initial spray. It morphs into a nice, clean and easy to wear fragrance. Not great lasting power, but for casual days.....that's fine. Simple, easy packaging that fits in a draw or cabinet. I like.

The comparisons to Clinique Happy are spot on.
Mary Kays' Embrace Happiness is a lighthearted fragrance that would be almost too sweet but it dries down to a nice fresh fragrance. I get the citrus in this fragrance but a little soft floral to balance it all out. The bottle is plain...no big deal.
I especially like it because the price was excellent from ebay.

Fruity and floral.....the fruity is king here. Together, the fragrance is fresh and light. It is also a little sweet for my taste.
It dries down to a fresh fragrance but, on me, it does not last long. Not the body spray, lotion or EDT. Basic BBW packaging. Nice for Spring, but I do think there are better Spring fragrances.

Forget all other lip balms. These lip smackers by Bonne Bell
are the perfect texture and light tint that matches the lip.
Tasty too!
No other lip balm comes close. The price is outstanding.

Well, I purchased this with a lot of other fragrances on e-bay.
I'm pretty sure it is discontinued. I was also concerned that the fragrance might be past it's prime. Nope. It is a lovely floral that dries down to a soft clean fragrance. For the price I paid for it, I would definitely purchase again.....but it's no longer available.

This is a nice floral and some would say, right off, that it smells like a "grandma" fragrance. Well, my mother wore this when she was alive and when I smell it, I think of her.
I'll agree, I don't think of this as a "young" fragrance.
I would not wear it, but for a more mature woman who prefers feminine fragrances, White Shoulders is worth looking into.

Some say this is too sweet and I agree....for about the first 5 minutes. Then, this morphs into a fresh, clean floral. Nice for Spring. Pretty color, too. I think this is a great "base" lotion for those that like floral fragrances and want to layer. It does not last very long

This is a pleasant fragrance. Nothing really "special" about it, though. It does last a long time and that is a plus. I guess it just reminds me of a lot of other fragrances that show up for a year or two and then they are gone, but another one will take its' place.....with a different name. I'm calling you out, Avon.
This is a good Spring/Summer fragrance that is not …

If this was not quite so sweet in the first blast, I would have given this a 5. It does dry down to a really nice fragrance, but it takes about 2 hours for me to "warm up" to the fragrance.
It would be appropriate for a business setting if lightly spritzed but I really see this more as a "date" perfume.
