Comments: Goes on with quick lemon hit, then turns floral (jasmine/tuberose) then jasmine and vanilla to vanilla. Nice scent.

Date: 8/23/08 Weather: 85 degrees, sunny, humid

Comments: Starts with serious indolic jasmine hit with some neroli within. Almost registers as lily of the valley. In about 30 minutes, turns into a pretty jasmine / vanilla with a slight honeyed undertone. Ends as a jasmine and vanilla laced white musk. Gets slightly soapy towards the end, 6 hours later.
