I originally received this in a Christmas grab bag and thought big deal. But one summer day I decided to spritz some on and much to my suprise, it wasn't too bad! It's fresh, light and a bit powdery and, yes a little arrtificial. But it's uplifting as well and certainly something that can be worn in warmer weather. It isn't my first choice, but I do fine myself reaching for it now and then. More often than not I'll get a compliment! Haven't bought a bottle for myself but it's rather inexpensive so I just MIGHT "splurge" on a cheap thrill!
