The cheapie that wears like a queen
My goodness this is so beautiful. It's back up bottle worthy.

It opens with a waxy, creamy, warm gardenia. It's has that coconut-like smell of a real gardenia right off the bush. It' is the truest gardenia scent I have found. There's some stuff going on behind the gardenia that give it some depth. Some florals (rose and violet maybe) and something a little green in there too. I cannot put into words how well blended and crafted this cheapie is.

The drydown still has a stong gardenia flower thing going on, but there is also a clean musk, sweet vanilla and I think, almond.

On me the longevity was excellent. I washed it off after 12 hours but it was still going strong. The sillage is perfect. it's not a skin scent but you need to be sitting or standing near someone for them to catch whiffs of your divine scent.
