I love it. It's haunting, it's gossamer in a fragrance.
It has this ethereal quality. I once smelled it on someone, I had to stop and ask her what she had on. I wore it for years. just to save some cash I stopped buying it & just wore whatever I received as gifts from Holidays . But a few months ago I smelled it someone, and I had to have it again! I've bought it many forms since, oil, splash, lotion etc etc. At leasttttt once a day I pick up the bottle and smell it!
I have even gone as far as to buy Jasmine, Osmanthus and Narcissus oil, mixed them up with a carrier oil to see if that is what I am smelling, it's not.
I realize it's a mix of scents but whatever it is I love it.
Destiny is a very sheer scent smelling of apricots and pink or white roses. But here, sheer doesn't mean fleeting...the EDP lasts a good 8-10 hours or more and the silllage is impressive. It's a very feminine scent and while not ground breaking, it would be perfect for the office or spring/summer season. I like it very much for a reasonably priced fume.
Destiny EDP: Hmmmm… Subtle… musty… musky… Destiny is a unique and intriguing take on the white floral fragrance. It is light – it is essentially presented more as a gossamer-like texture than as a redolent bouquet. Its creator has avoided the usual, indole-laden choices that often inhabit the “white floral” territory. No tuberose, or gardenia, or even jasmine leaving their dirty eminences here and there throughout the fragrance; and the lily is kept under strict control. The resulting accord that I perceive is a clear and light narcissus backed up by a very soft, sheer (white) rose note. This is lightness, delicacy, femininity and translucence. The florals are united into a texture… smooth and rich… a bit powdery… and they stay that way in a state of blissful and graceful linearity. In testing this I realized that this is not a fragrance to be smelled close to the skin. It’s nice enough that way, but its real olfactory gift is the gentle sillage off the skin. Lovely…
I am not a fan. It's a blend of white flowers, but to me it smells like a retirement home lobby. It's just too musty, there is nothing sweet or floral about it.
This is the best perfume I have ever smelled on a woman. My friend has worn this scent, sporadically, since I met her in 1997. She is very feminine, and has a chemistry and nose for perfume, especially the white flowers of Destiny. I have given gifts of Destiny over the years to several females, including my mother. They have since then regarded me as perfumier extraordinaire, a title undeserved but nonetheless accepted. They are always wanting to know if the latest scents are better than Destiny, or more feminine, and I can honestly say "No!" A perfume should be feminine, and Destiny is femininity par excellence.
