- ITI: I’m fairly happy that I received this one as a frimp. My mother was raving about it, claiming it’s one of her new favorites and I’ve been eager so see what all the fuss is about. It’s a bright scent, but somewhat rounder than purely citrus scents are. I think it’s due to the bergamot, which lens a sightly exotic, warm tone to other scents that I’ve tested, as well as the white musk.
- Wet: It reminds me of Lush’s Honey I Washed the Kids but without the cloying honey tones. It’s slightly anise-y, bright, exotically delicious, while having this bright musky tone to it infused with the sublime heliotrope. Okay, I think I can see why she likes it so much.
- Dry: It dries down quickly, becoming creamier than I would have anticipated, like vanilla musk underneath hanging while florals and somnambulant, lulling bergamot tinged with anise. Gosh, this really is gorgeous.
