I find this scent to be sexy, feminine, warm, sweet and spicy. Lately, I've been way more into fresh scents. I don't put this in that classification. Although, it doesn't meet my current tastes, I like it well enough, can tell it's good quality and think it's a worthy choice.

It was a little difficult to put my finger (Or nose) on what exactly this spritz smelled like, besides, "Mmmmm." I have come to the conclusion that it smells a bit like cream soda with an unknown spice. It also reminded me of this sarsaparilla soda I had as a kid. When I had a family member smell my wrist, she thought it smelled like some sort of melon.

The notes of the fragrance are actually the following: quince and cardamom (top notes); white peony and freesia (mid-notes); and white musk, sandalwood, vanilla (low notes). Its fragrance type is vanilla oriental. Sweet and spicy, indeed!

I received this perfume recently in a swap with a friend. I used to wear this perfume in high school and smelling it now, I am surprised that I wore this back then. It seems much better suited to someone older than a teen.

I find that this fragrance has good staying power. When I sprayed it on at 1 PM, it smelled great and you could smell it intensely. It was still going strong at 6 PM, the time I usually take a shower. If I didn't have to wash the perfume off, I could see it staying fragrant for a couple more hours.

The size I have is a tiny purse spray. It could be a sample. It looks to be around .07 fl. oz / 2.07 mL. It comes in a glass bottle with a sprayer on top. There is a black cap that covers the sprayer. The minute packaging makes it easy to store in your smallest bag. It's really easy to knock over if you stand the bottle up on an end table since it's so dainty. While I like this petite atomizer, I also like the packaging of the full size sprays. I used to own one of the mists, and I had no problem with it. It was big, plastic and durable.
