No, can't do
It's a powerhouse white floral. I can't do white florals.
It's so strong and heavy and thick it must be an oriental. I can't do orientals.
It stays wet and creamy. It's very long lasting.
It went to my girlfriend.

Mimosa/Wattle flower
What you call mimosa in Europe must be what we call wattle in Australia. Smelling this is like plunging your nose into a bunch of fresh wattle flowers Fizzing sunshine, honey and wattle. Bright, fresh, happy. A treasured gift. Reminds me of Maria Carey Lollipop Bling Honey, altough the honey in that is a bit less sunny and fizzy, a bit flatter and smoother whereas this is more blossomy and up your nose open your eyes and look at the world afresh. I love wearing this in August, (spring) when the wattle is out.

Scent

crushed lemon leaves
crushed lemon leaves, sweet and a little bit bitter, zesty, uplifting, fresh, perfect for hot summer days. Much sweeter than their green tea. Good trail and lasts about 4 hours on me.

Sweet powdery gorgeous
Okay, I will be first. I am a fruity floral lover, and this is heaven. Light, blossom sweet, nutty, very powdery, gorgeous. Unusual in that it is powdery from the moment it is sprayed, rather than developing into powdery. Medium projection and lasts a good 6 hours on me. It's fast become a favourite.
Dead ringer for Lancome's Tresor Midnight Rose except that Tresor Midnight Rose for an hour or so in the drydown veers into a deeper jellybean, jammy rose-nectarine, whereas this stays a little bit lighter, more blossomy and more powdery. Doesn't have much development, just fades sweetly away.
