Navy-A Less Exotic Version Of Tabu To Use During The Sunlit Hours
Always a reason why some scents stick around and that's because they just smell good and Dana's Navy just does. It has staying power, and a little spritz goes a long way. It's inexpensive, and its scent will remind you of a musky, patchouli, amber with a hint of vanilla essence in the background. I compare it to the daytime version of Tabu, or the good girl version of Tabu if there is such a creature. Navy is just a nice scent that isn't overbearing. In its initial spray, there is some peachiness, followed by a hint of rose. These notes dissipate rather quickly. It's the drydown that I love. Once the basenotes appear, the muskiness definitely stays with the amber, the vanilla and a slight scent of cinnamon begin to intermingle. It's a very wholesome type of scent. The fragrance has staying power to last all day, which is wonderful for an inexpensive product. If you enjoy an oriental perfume, try Navy. You just might be surprised. It packs a lot in its scent that keeps circling around the base notes in a pleasant surprise all day long. An old favorite that I'll just keep handy for when I want to feel good about myself. It bears repeating that Navy is not so much a watered-down version of Tabu, but it is a less sultry version of it. If Tabu is your night perfume, then Navy would be the one you'd reach for during the day.
