Out of the bottle, this smelled like bubblegum and cigarette smoke. Nothing else. Mind you, I LOVE the smell of tobacco. But this wasn't even tobacco. Just the stinky smoke part of a cigarette after it's been burned and perhaps tossed into an ashtray.

I love incense but couldn't detect it on my skin either. Just the stinky smoke. I think this was a great idea on paper but, in reality, it fell apart. The incense note is a stinky type of smoke and not "true". The bubble gum is too strong and cheap. I couldn't even appreciate the sweetness of it. Besides, they didn't blend well. Like a psychotic dual personality, they seem to struggle for domination from the first spritz and all the way to the end. Not for me. Too bad... I was SO excited about this and now my hopes are kind of dashed.

First impression
This 'bad girl' isn't popular, I'm trying to find out why.

This fragrance's character is in the raspberry and incense. I should say: the bubblegum and incense, because it doesn't smell like a real berry, more like berry flavoring. The incense is a bit hazy. A few hours in, these two notes have subsided enough so that the soft base notes peek out: a little vanilla, lily of the valley and airy musk. Reminiscent of cheap, fresh drugstore edt's, in a good and fresh way.

The reason she doesn't hang out with the cool kids: She's neither this nor that. Not a bad girl, not a sweet girl, not a church girl. At some point the bubblegum blends with the incense, getting synthetic. Not unpleasant, but not appealing either. Want a bad girl perfume that combines sweetness with something else? (it's unisex enough by the way) I suggest you look at Boudoir, Divin'Enfant or Tubereuse Animale first.

Nice touch: lily o/t valley used in an original way. But, try before you buy!
