LEI FLOWER actually came as a freebie with 2 other samples I ordered. This perfume, according to another site, was created by Charna Ethier in 2010. I am very new to perfume, actually don't wear it much, and don't generally like florals so I was reluctant even to spray this on!! I was afraid it would be overpowering, like in the mall, and cling to my skin & give me a headache.
But it was exactly the opposite: It is absolutely beautiful. I kept waiting for it to turn icky and it never did. When I first sprayed it on, I smelled alcohol, as in rum or whiskey; then it turns to something like a really sweet, spicy, almost smoky wood, but delicious -- not at all bitter. The other review mentions toasted coconut or caramelized sugar. I don't really get that, but there is definitely something very sweet and a little fruity in this perfume, but it is balanced by the woody/leathery note.
The sweet/spicy/woody scent stayed luscious for the rest of the time it stayed on my skin, which was all day, until I washed it off. I am so glad To have found this wonderful fragrance, and will definitely buy it. Absolutely love it.
