Angel light

I really don't know what got into me to buy this fragrance. I had been warned: Oriental Touch is similar to Angel, and I abhor Angel.
It's not quite as bad as that, because the Alverde juice is a lot less gaudy than Angel and at least it doesn't give me headaches. And there is something to it. Maybe I'll get used to the fragrance after all.

I find the fragrance quite durable, especially as it can be revived by moisture (shower, rain, perspiration). Water it a little and it comes to bloom again. Even the melon which evaporates first can be resurrected by moisture. I found this resurrection effect in other fragrances as well, but never so strong as in this one.
