Scent:

  • ITI:  Oh wow, that’s sweet, but not cloying; gentle, but seductive.  The red musk is nearly candied, but infuses a delightful warming into the sandalwood and lilac that it is nearly brimming with delicate desire.  Goodness, this is nice.
  • Wet:  Imagine if Fresh made a sugared lilac scent and you layered this over the musky note in Pink Sugar. Tom Ford’s orchid, and threw in sandalwood and a subtle drizzle of bergamot – you’d have this scent.  It’s just amazing.  I love that it reminds me of something sweet and innocent on top, but the minute the scent begins to register, the complexity and naughtiness of the woods and musks saunter in.
  • Dry:  It’s still wonderful over 14 hours later – soft lilac, candied red musk, faint, feminine orchid, and a subtle, lulling resin linger on my wrist in such a delightful way that it’s a same to take a shower and wash it off.
Other Impressions: None.
