      I Love NY for Marriage Equality has head notes of mandarin, nutmeg and plum; middle notes of rose, jasmine and ginger lily; and base notes of cashmere wood, sandalwood, and amber. "[It is] An easy-to-wear, easy-to-love fragrance that honors New York proudly setting the global pace in celebrating love, marriage … and civil rights" say the company.

      The fragrances are available as 50ml and 100ml Eau de Parfum. "Fathers" launches on June 1st, and "Marriage Equality" on July 1st.

        These are legitimate. They were present at the Elements Showcase. Marriage Equality is quite good.
