This did turn out to smell somewhat like it's name. It is soft, and well done, but I found it a little lacking in excitement.
It opens with a very soft bergamot and floral, almost a hint of powder to me. The predominant floral was jasmine, although lily of the valley and rose are also listed notes. I could smell the others, but they were muted. I keep saying soft, because that is how it came across to me. A touch of myrrh added a small bit of spice, giving it an almost apricot smell. In fact, I could go so far as to compare this to SL Daim Blond and also Mauboussin Histoire d'Eau in that they have a smooth apricot smell with a hint of spice. Some musk comes in for the drydown to round it off.
I own both of my comparison frags, so this one won't temp me. But it is a fine, soft floral that does hint at a cashmere feel, rather than a suede of the others. Ultimately, this bored me a bit, although I can't complain about the smell.
