i just discovered this perfume, and i love it. at first it seemed too floral for my taste, as i prefer chyphre, oriental scents, and i like my florals white. despite the lack of instant affinity, i bought it because it triggered a childhood memory of a friend of my mother's who alsways smelled so good and "grown-up." i have found that as i wear it throughout the day it becomes an almost chocolatey, spicy smell unlike anything i have ever experienced outside of the house of guerlain - it seems to get deeper, warmer, richer, and more sensual. it becomes less of a perfume and more of the essence of a person - a sexy, sensual person. it's divine.
