Summary: After reading numerous reviews for this scent, I figured I HAD to try it. I am usually a lover of vanilla orientals and the notes in this seemed to fit the bill. Was I ever wrong! This scent was awful on me. I know, I know I just do not "appreciate" the scent, I am "not mature enough" for it. No, my body chemistry rejected this. Initial sniff, I got a very chemical-laden, bug spray smell.
Summary: Initially I was really attracted to this perfume. It strongly appealed to me through sexy advertisement, sleek bottle and everyone was raving about it. I've waited until CD had GWP and got the smallest bottle (30 mls I think). The smell was really strong yet sexy and I would wear it everywhere - to work, during day, at night...Then I got really sick of it so I gave it to my mum. Then I couldn't stand it even when she was wearing it - it was way too strong and heavy.
Summary: Underlying fall gourmand notes of apple pie set in a Neiman Marcus department store is captured in this fragrance. Not for me, at least not for the next ten years, but elegant and upscale nonetheless.
Summary: EDIT: I don't like it anymore, smells like alcohol! My favorite perfume! I've been wearing this for years and I love it so much! The smell is deep and sexy with vanilla...it's quite expensive but worth it! this perfume is totally me!
Summary: When first applied Addict I was immediately overpowered by acidy musk and by brassy incense. An instant painful sinus headache plagued me the rest of the morning. Many people swear by Addict EDP, but I think it smells like that cheap Opium air freshener that graces the dollar store shelves. After drydown Addict softened quite a bit. Still Addict has that dusty, musty incense note that I just cannot take.
Summary: I don't know what it is about Addict, whether it's the extreme florals or the sweetness in the beginning that is overpowering and never fails to elicit a headache! I admire the dry down and the smokiness of it.. I just can't stand that strong sweet soprano note upon first spray that never seems to end.
