A fruity, slightly smoky, irish cream leaning on the womanly side in my opinion and with a touch of initial citrusy "vintage" hidden somewhere that in a first time reminds a bit the potpourri of some great classics as Paris, 24 Faubourg, White Diamonds and some Van Cleef & Arpels even if with a more creamy beat. The mélange is sophisticated by flowers and is glamour in its valzer of alcoholic zabaione, gardenia, passion fruit and whisky . The Passion Fruit and the gardenia are detectable by an unprofane nose and impress exoticism and sophistication to this nightclubbing scent. The are some spices (nuttmeg?) in composition in order to sweeten the milky final cloud of musk and exotic fruits. The end is a sort of creamy-alcoholic musk a touch smoky but not heavy or cloying because the vanilla is well balanced and combined with musk, rum and mild smoke and that balance prevents the scent to become a sort of gourmand juice. The fragrance, dedicated to the creative and glamour youth of NYC, is interesting but certainly not innovative because its intoxicating milky-talky final dust is a bit in the same vein of One Million, The Dreamer, Etro Eliotrope and many others although with addition of the nightclubbing ingredient of rum. Longevity and projection are good for sure.
