Size: 1 mL

Luckyscent Notes: Green notes, pear, exotic flowers, ylang ylang, sunflower, sandalwood

Date: 10/29/07 Weather: 55 degrees and sunny

Comments: Starts with a very pretty pear. A green note at top, then fades to flowers. This is really pretty! What a fruity floral should be. Slightly powdery, but not offensively so. As it dries down – more ylang ylang. Beautiful dry down and sillage.

Date: 2/6/08 Weather:65 degrees, thunderstorms in the area

Comments: No pear this time. Just green. An indolic note this time about 10 minutes in. This fades after 30 minutes. After 45 minutes, the scent fades in and out. Goes between the white floral and a vanilla/musky/pear scent and disappearing in between.

Date: 6/10/08 Weather: 85 degrees, humid

Comments: Pear, aquatic flowers. Becomes a green soapy floral about 15 minutes in and stays this way for about an hour. On the drydown, settles into a musky floral vanilla that is quite lovely. Not a big fan of the heart in this thing. Lasts much longer than anticipated. 6 hours and still going strong.

Date: 10/01/08 Weather: 60 degrees, rainy

Comments: Aquatic floral. Catching more vanilla in the top this time. Becomes green, soapy, musky floral 15 minutes in. The soap replaces the vanilla An hour later – settles into a musky floral with a lashing of vanilla. Was still going strong 4 hours later. Gone the next morning.
