As is often the case with me, this perfume has simply landed in the shopping cart due to a great offer price. The eau de toilette of the series was already there in my collection and also the eau de perfume had remained in my good memory. In my opinion, the bottle is not beautiful now, I like others more, but it simply has recognition value, in the collection the little bottles line up nicely one after the other and this one in gold, lets directly recognize that there simply still "more" comes, I find very suitable to the fragrance. After the first spraying already, a very strong and really intensive smell flows around you! I can't notice a remarkable course of scent in me, the scent becomes calmer after many hours, until it disappears completely. The mixture of the scents looks flowery-sweet to me, but also goes partly in a slightly bitter direction, which the patchouli probably causes. So it's not a sweetness that whets an appetite:D I think the scent is great, but it's really very strong and so I'd prefer it if it's allowed to be more and it's just right for special occasions or even the evening. Who likes generally rather light smells, it becomes too much for him here in any case! I do not regret the purchase and am satisfied!
