No layers, no texture
This one felt relentless and exhausting, all heart notes all the way through. I like light perfumes, I like gourmands and absolutely love aromatic notes, but here everything is so smoothly blended that the result is a bit grotesque. It's a sweetish smell that does not suggest any known confection, prickles the nose a bit (the herbs here, although not individually recognisable), and doesn't have a story to tell. I also find it unconvincing as a personal scent. It's a wall of smell without the sparkle of top notes or the depth and intimacy of a base. It's flat, it's dull and tiresome and I don't just mean that it's boring, but that it's the olfactory equivalent of an unwanted song stuck in your head.
