Lady Cool is a musky-floral scent, quite conventionally "young" and effortlessly stuffed with calone, melonal and that stuff which makes scents smell – exactly – "young" and contemporary. Metallic, fruity and floral, fresh and menthol-balsamic (basil too?). Basically nothing different from any feminine green-floral "fresh and summery" fragrance, especially the cheaper ones given Lady Cool does surely not exude quality, refinement or appeal. Not stinky, just mediocre (and short lived too).
One could waste many more words on this but what it boils down to is a drugstore sweety. Completely synthetic smelling soft fruity floral, as if the ranks of those needed swelling. Has a faint bit of ammoniac discord somewhere in the mix. Won’t offend for sure but similarly fails to please.
I was luckily gifted samples of this and the other Dueto perfumes recently adn this was by far my favourite.
Heady cardamon and rose top notes linger but are joined by spicy undertones after an hour or two. They mingle beautifully, creating a warm and entirely unique fragrance. I could still 'just' smell this on my wrist the next morning.
Reminds me a little of Vice Versa by YSL just for its in your face top note combo but I prefer this one, no contest- this has its heady top notes but a gentler dry down, warmer, more inviting. I cannot WAIT to get my hands on my own bottle. Thanks for the samples, Dueto!
Edit - now I have my very own bottle of this loveliness. It IS sweet, when the orange blossom, vanilla and cardamon combo burst onto the scene but to me, it isn't the nauseating sweetness I can't bear in frags like Angel and other vanilla heavy scents. It is strong but then it is a welcome change to me in a sea of same same wishy washy clean rose scents to smell a 'dirty' rose.
