Comments: Starts with citrus and amber, morphs to a highly indolic jasmine, then to a metallic. This is a shape-shifter of a scent, something that requires a lot of concentration to pick out notes. It changes so quickly. Florals peek out among the silver, then some amber and balsams. This scent does not register as particularly cuddly on me. It also strikes me as being somewhat formal – power suit and sharp, spiky heels with shiny blood red nails and hair placed just so. But its a type of formal I may be able to pull off – maybe once a year. Realistically aspirational.

Date: 7/8/09 Weather: 83 degrees, sunny

Comments: First 10 minutes – PERFUME. 2nd 10 minutes – HAIRSPRAY. Then turns into a sweet jasmine. Smelled better than I expected after the first 20-30 minutes. Lasted about 12 hours.
