B Exquisite is a vanilla dominant perfume that exudes oriental confidence and screams Dior-like luxury. At first spray I get a whopper of vanilla enriched by nutmeg, sweet citruses, and berries. The dry down comes in quickly with amber, jasmine, and sandalwood, making this a slightly spicy and mostly soft, sexy, woody pudding-bomb! I see “some” similarity to Flowerbomb but I could never say that this would be a substitute. Though, I definitely would say that it is better than FB by replacing patchouli with the softer, powdery sandalwood and toning down the busy florals by replacing them with the sensual nutmeg/vanilla combo. Projection and longevity are also awesome. I prefer this to any other oriental vanillas I’ve ever had the pleasure to use. Totally appropriate for a date night or those special moments you prefer not to be forgotten. And if you wear this, believe you me - NOBODY is going to forget you!
