Lotus was the star of the show here, eclipsing the listed rose note almost completely. It's a light, light-hearted fragrance. I could see some people liking this, but it's not right for me. The lotus is fresh and slightly fruity, almost mango-like, with the clean characteristics of freesia. The tartness masks the sweetness of the musk, which emerges slowly and softly. Lasting power was negligible on me. If you want to explore lotus further, Roger & Gallet Eau De Lotus Bleu has been recommended to me. Lotus also is featured beautifully in L'Ecume des Jours, an all-natural fragrance by Ayala Moriel.
