Scent:

  • ITB: Wow, that’s a stunning cardamom – fuzzy, fragrant, and delicious over a dried shredded coconut note.  Yum!
  • Wet: The coconut is a bit more forward once applied, more balanced with the cardamom than in the bottle.  The cardamom is still as delicious as ever.
  • Dry:   Fuzzy coconut fluff with a hint of pleasant but subtle cardamom spice.  It verges on foody, but I still think this has some versatility beyond that. The scent doesn’t have a great deal of staying power as by hour 5, the throw is only about an inch and it’s become much more mellow than I would have liked. 

Other Impressions: It smells kind of like coconut and lime.  It reminds me of a Bath and Bodyworks scent from 2002 – like Pina Colada. It’s not a bad smell.” -Kelly
