This is a beautiful, warm and inviting gourmand. It's an exciting lover that makes you decadent waffles in the morning.
This has notes of rich and creamy caramel, vanilla (softly mixed in with the caramel...not alcohol vanilla), creamed coconut and a touch of oily wax. Any floral notes are barely noticeable to me and seems that they are there to round everything out, keep it from being linear.
The wear time is quite long at about 8+ hours and sillage is moderate (a little past arm length).
This is lovely for a date night or a night you want to be wrapped in cozy goodness. I love it!
Far too sweet and syrupy. I felt like visiting a dentist after sampling this scent.
As with the below review, this disappointed me (admittedly I had my expectations up). It wans't, to my nose, caramel-y or butterscotchy-y, it was just vanilla, and a tinny, synthetic, shallowish vanilla at that. Lasting power was average and throw was almost nil.
The frag this reminded me of is Lea St. Barth, which is a richer, better frag all around than Madera. However, if anyone has found Lea to be 'too much' maybe give this one a try? I'm unimpressed, but it's not an offensive scent. Just too samey and generic to me.
