Brocade as a soft, sweet, powdery floral on me. The only note I can really pick out is a vanilla that comes into play after about a half hour. Sillage is low at a few inches, lasts about 3 hrs. A soft 'innocent' type scent that shouldn't bother anyone anywhere. I can see me occasionally wearing this when I want to wear a scent but have it not really noticable. However I prefer more noticeable scents with a punch. A plus if not a hit for Avon.
