My mother had a habit of handing off old perfumes to me whenever she got sick of them. I would play with some of them as a kid but when you're eight, you really only like perfume that smells like jellybeans. As a result, I have a 20 year old 3/4 full bottle of this discontinued fragrance in my bathroom drawer.
I sprayed this on my right wrist and the opening was VERY sweet - sort of caramelly and I turned my nose up at it.
The drydown is better. There is only a hint of that sweetness left in the mostly powdery floral scent, which is still very strong even after 20 years. (My mother believes that it has mellowed since then. It was too much jasmine for her.) I believe it has some amber in it because it has a warmth to it that's not in pure floral scents and perhaps a light musk and some patchouli for an earthy spicyness.
I believe I could get away with wearing it as long as I apply lightly. It's still a little too sugary, but it's interesting. Even more so by the fact that few other women will be wearing this. ;-)
