Agatha opens up very floral: Night blooming jasmine and tuberose have that tendency to take control of an accord. I think that the tuberose dominates over the jasmine because I get nothing of the jasmine indole. The accord seems quite soft – almost reticent, but then, my dry skin usually tames the wildest of white floral combinations. On my skin it is a pleasant white floral, and it doesn’t seem very tropically exotic, making it similar to many other white florals out there. I don’t get very much fruit in the middle levels, because the florals continue to dominate: When the florals are exhausted, the fragrance moves to the base: either there is no middle or I continually miss it. The base is excellent – smooth woods and amber edged with a bit of myrrh – truly delightful, and believably unisex. Agatha EdT is long lasting, and it has only a bit of tropical exoticness, so it is a very easy wear.
