Summary: Garden, put away your passport and find Balenciaga. The fragrance will have women turning their heads, trying to find the bouquet from whence this lovely aria arises. How long has it been since a stranger has stopped and asked the name of your parfum?

Summary: I am not a woman that likes 'sickie sweet' perfumes. I like a scent that doesn't smell like every other woman and I found it in Florabotanica. Other reviewers say it doesn't last long, I disagree. One spray seems very strong at first and then, let's say, calms down.

The amber is also there but not prominent. I say its a green floral scent instead of a oriental.
