Have worn this since I was a girl, and have always loved it. I find it to be one of those scents that enters the room before you, and lingers for a while after. It has feel to it, as if the top notes, and some of the middle notes, of Shalimar have been amped up by at least 1000, and made to sparkle ever so subtly. It also will not dry down with the warmth of Shalimar, but will dry down towards a darker, less welcoming place. The dry-down makes me think more of vintage My Sin, than any other scent.
It is not a scent one should choose, it is one that will choose the wearer.
