This scent is entirely dominated by the vanilla & benzoin. Pleasantly un-sweet compared to many vanilla-heavy scents. Not that much personality, though. Over time, it ripens & becomes richer. It comes to remind me of the vanilla & wood aspects of my beloved Laura Mercier Nuits Enchantees. However, NE has additional mocha and spice notes that make it interesting. Because Brit Gold lacks those types of notes, it doesn't venture beyond comfortable and cuddly.
