One of my favorite fragrances ever
4 August 2014
Excerpt: I discovered this fragrance some time ago while shopping for a different one; I liked this one so much better that I purchased it instead of the other. It may be a bit more expensive than other classic fragrances, but I think it's well worth it, as it lasts a good long time and isn't overpowering at all.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Floral Fruity Scent, Long-Lasting, Not Overpowering
Summary: The top notes are a gorgeous mango enriched with bright citrus and soft lotus floral in the background. The drydown is honeyed, balmy, a little waxy. The whole thing is dreamy, beautifully done and I can tell its expensive, as its complex and well rounded. However, the drydown is a but is a bit to cloying/amberish for me - what a shame! Lasting power is average, around 4 - 5 hours on me.
Summary: I absolutely love this perfume. I do not have a sophisticated nose and I have no idea about the base notes but I love how it smells both in the air and on my skin. Minus one lippy because it doesn't last much more than half a day so I have used my bottle so quickly! Still worth it for me because I am very fussy with perfumes and absolutely hate anything vanilla or especially 'girly' smelling.
Summary: I'll start off by saying, this perfume doesn't last long on my skin (maybe 3 hrs., tops) and it's extremely expensive, which is disappointing. It's very green, grassy and crisp. I didn't get the tanginess that's mentioned in the description, but that's ok. I also don't get a clean smell either. To me, clean means soapy. This is far from soapy. It's very fresh, like freshly cut grass. If you don't like sweet or floral perfumes, this would be perfect for you.
Excerpt: I love the smell of fresh citrus and fruity. My 3 yrs old boy felt in love with the color of the bottle and was using every night after taking the bath. Definitly will have to order it again eventhough I was a little bit disappoint about not long-lasting.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Great Smell, Not Overpowering
