A Fresh Citrus Floral but...Not Gonna Do It!
I thought I loved it at first, but after about an hour my nose started running and I got a migraine headache. I smelled a fresh citrus floral for the first 10 minutes and was very pleased to find it so reasonable priced. Then when the allergies kicked in, not just me, my husband started sneezing and the cat started wheezing - ugh...I knew it wasn't meant to be. If I had to describe this, I would say that it was like a less slutty version of "Jivago 24K Gold", no offense meant to Jivago 24 K Gold Lovers...I like it, too and this has that same middle with a fresh bergamot and green mandarin note over the top. Starts out so lovely, but after the first hour...the sillage was kicking my you-know-what! So if you like Jivago 24K Gold, but wish it had more sillage and feel that you can do without some of that powdery base, this is half the price...not a bad deal. As for me- it had to go back...'Not-gonna-to-do-it!' As A Bush, Senior, former US Pres. used to say!
