Summary: Very very vanilla, cozy and warm, powdery, and sensual. It holds its own and is worthy of its popularity. I adore vanilla fragrances, but this one may be just on the border of being too foody of a vanilla, like the way the Lavanila line or Coty Vanilla Musk is too foody sweet for my personal taste. Perhaps I'm not liking the rice note? Again, I still consider this a worthy perfume. I might test it again in the Winter.
Summary: This is my signature scent. I first sniffed this a couple years ago back in '11 or '12, liquid rice pudding came to mind and nothing else. Yet I really liked it. Warm, powdery scrummy gourmand is what I originally thought. It took a good year or two to purchase a bottle. However, when I did purchase a bottle, I found the scent to develop in complexity. This is a close-to-skin lingering scent, rather powdery but possesses a subtle warm smokey undertone.
Summary: I really, really, really wanted to love this. You can smell lovely vanilla and rice, it has a natural note to it. But something has gone totally wrong with this scent, at least on my skin - it has a horrible plastic/melted plastic note that stands out and just kills of my lovely mellow sweet rice pudding scent.
Summary: Light sweet and ultra sugary! On me it stays very much the same through out the drydown, with only a slight change to the absolute last stages. I don't think I would get it for myself, however, on my girlfriend this smells AMAZING. Her skin brings out the notes beautifully, it develops into something more creamy (frangipani maybe?) which is a note I love and wish my chemistry would react better with.
Summary: I wanted to love this SO bad. I was so excited to go into Sephora and try this on, this was going to be my next fragrance, my signature! It was everything that I love! Warm, vanilla, sweet, soft. And then I smelled it....sprayed it on my skin...and I was completely underwhelmed. It's warm, it's soft, it lies close to the skin, but it leaves something to be desired. As it dried, it smelled very peppery and powdery to me, very reminiscent of Gucci Guilty Black.
