Comments: Starts out pleasantly green and rosy with a hint of violets. I can see why this is considered a benchmark rose fragrance. Within 5 minutes, it becomes rose geranium soap. Gaack!!! It takes about 45 minutes and a healthy walk for it to settle down into a mildly soapy floral with a healthy dose of lily of the valley. The amber and the vanillic scent of heliotrope also begin to make an appearance. About 3 hours in – more amber and woods. Hint of green rose. Gone in 6 hours.
