* The top is strong and sweet, yet smooth and velvety.
* The sweetness dries a bit as the flowers come through in the heart – ylang ylang is the star, with rose and white flower cushioning it.
* As the flowers develop (or bloom), a creamy sandalwood floats around it.
* After several hours, the flowers recede and a creamy base of vanilla remains.
Summary: There is something really special and unique about this scent. It is syrupy and dense, yet light and airy – at the same time. It’s like a blanket that comforts and keeps you warm, yet it allows some free movement. It sounds like I am describing a narcotic snuggie, but it’s much more luxurious than that. It feels lush and layered while being sweet and intoxicating. I really like that it wears a little differently on me each time – especially in the floral heart. Sometimes I get a subtle hint of chocolate, while other times I get a cool mint sensation. I went through a full sample of it just to keep experiencing how it develops. Longevity is really good at more than 12 hours. I would say this leans a lot more feminine (especially the shimmery version, which deposits a gold powder on your skin) but a guy could probably pull of the non-shimmery version. I can’t say this is the most unique scent in the world but it definitely is enjoyable and luxurious.
