This one falls In the category of where have you been all my life!!
Wonderful, deliciously sweet, powdery amber! It feels elegant and romantic, I predict men will like this one, it's sure to garner compliments. I know it looks top heavy with citrus, but the fruit notes are softly mingled with the florals, I don't get any sharpness at all. Nor does it smell citrus-y. I did read on another site that this contains oak moss, but I wouldn't call it a chypre or a floral. I'd call it a soft oriental, my favorite category.
There is something a bit Chanel about this one too, but I can't place it. I didn't realize this has been around awhile so I paid full price (big bottle too) at the Nordie's event, only to find it on eBay for cheap! But that's ok, I love it and I'm happy. My little twinsies, please take note of this one!
