pay attention to the disclaimer

Summary: Amazon's disclaimer about a scents and personal perception should be taken seriously. This scent has been described as 'citrus,' 'flowery,' 'woody.' It is none of these things to me, but rather one similar to nearly most of the recent 'cheap' celebrity scents, all of no particular distinction. It does smell better after the dry-down. The bottle is hard to hold, although pretty, and there's a lot for the money. I have not received compliments and don't expect any.
Summary: I like the notes as listed for this perfume. I like the idea of it. I like the ad. The packaging looks nice, too. Sadly, I do not like the perfume itself. It's incredibly chemical-smelling to me. All I can think of when I wear it is a swimming pool at a cheap motel where they have chosen to add an overdose of chlorine to convince everyone how clean the pool is. I'm baffled.
Summary: I did not receive my product by the date specified, so I went out and tried checking the tracking on it to see where it was. It wouldn't let me even check the tracking and it errored out. I sent the seller an email and they responded the next day and said they would ship a new one. I did eventually receive my product but not by the day that I wanted it. I was really disappointed but at least the responded to my email and re-sent me a new one.
Summary: This smells slightly milky, rather than refreshing and crisp as I was hoping for. It's full of peaches, plums, oranges, musk, and wisteria. On paper it sounds Ok but in actual fact I didn't like it. The first few minutes are fine: kind of floral with a hint of orange, but after that an odd sort of coffee smell pops up and makes the whole thing smell a bit of a mish mash, like it doesn't know what category it wants to be in. Also, it lasted barely half an hour on me.
Summary: There are no ingredients listed. I can not buy this product without the ingredients. I have discovered multiple parabens in perfume and cologne which I did not think to look for previously. Perfume/Cologne/After shave and parabens:There needs to be a better way to preserve products moving forward.
