Who knew that browsing online perfume discounters could be so great? Probably a lot of folks, but not me until I stumbled upon one. Idly I filled my basket with five inexpensive perfumes from houses I'd heard of. When they arrived, only one was a stinker. Not this. Colors is a beautiful perfume I would have paid a lot more for. It's a lovely oriental, more wearable in daytime than its sultry and hypnotic grand cousins. Here, classic oriental notes are given a freshness provided, no doubt, by the fruit, especially pineapple, yet I wouldn't think "fruit" when smelling this if I didn't know it was there. This accomplished perfume may become my "when in doubt, go to" scent. Its low price makes its a doubly welcome addition. Civet is more noticeable in the drydown, but for me it works.
