Sweet Tonka beans
I do love the Chanel line, but this one.... is a miss for me. Now, I'm not saying I'm not going to use it, just not as much as I would have loved to. It opens up with a (for me) strong vanilla scent and some orange. It dos dry down a bit after 2-3 hours, but even after 6-8 hours, all I get is tonka beans (80%) and maybe some spice/woody (20%) notes. It last all day and even the next morning I can smell it, so be careful with the sprays. I would not do more than 2-3 sprays, since I feel I would kill my surroundings. One could say that it is versatile and can be used almost year round, but from my perspective it's not. Since I would not use it for my professional life, but only recommend it for a limited type of activities (chilling at home, shopping, visiting friends/family) in the colder month, I can not honestly say it's versatile. Season: from colder days in fall until early spring. A friend called it my "Sugar Daddy" perfume hehehe The point is, that it smells sweet/good and something a younger crowd might enjoy more than me. To be fair: I've found that I tend to love office safe fragrances, so if I do not feel its' safe for office = less use. That said, I can not get myself to sell it - simple because it's always nice to have at least one perfume that is not associated with work.
