What a strange perfume...
There's a fairly standard backbone here, a slightly peachy rose and jasmine floral bouquet resting on a bed of white soap. But, plopped unceremoniously on top of that is a big glob of, well, something. I really have no idea what that smell is, but it's sort of like rosewood, and sort of like tobacco leaf or even tonka, but it's closer to the smell of dirty moist brown paper towels. Oh, and I mean DIRTY. Like a unclean man parts. And it's just out there in front, all beaming and proud.
To be fair, many people (women?) might not recognize the "morning after and didn't wash up" man funk or might find it familiar but soapy and sexy, but it's really creeping me out. When I smell like this, I race for the shower - I don't bottle it and wear it out on the town...
