Base – sandalwood, musk, amber

Date: 9/25/07 Weather: 70 degrees

Wearing: Starts as a fresh aquatic floral. 30 minutes in, becomes a light white floral. 1 hour later, picks up amber and sandalwood notes. Still have the white floral as well through the dry down. Gone after 2.5 hours.

Comments: Light white floral. Very little fruit. Not very sweet.

Subsequent wearings: Took the sample with me to Florida since it seemed like a good warm weather scent. It was light enough that I was comfortable that I wouldn’t offend my more scent-sensitive relatives. It was usually gone in 3 hours. Boyfriend liked the heart notes. Not me, but very pretty, wearable and predictable.
