Guepard smells just like a million other strong, sweet, nondescript perfumes for elegant, middle-aged women. I wouldn't say refined, far too sweet for that, but it's not a girlie celebrity perfume sweetness. I can't pick out any single note, and no florals, which is good in my book. I guess some of the sweetness comes from florals though, and perhaps vanilla? A quite powdery scent, but I don't mind that. It also has a tad of green sharpness/spiciness to freshen it up a little.
