bought a bottle of this the other day after l sprayed the tester on my wrist. it was fresh, spicy, subtle & hauntingly exotic (unfortunately it has no staying power whatsoever, but then l suppose its an excuse for a respray).l have actually visited Kerala which is where the garden after the monsoon is evoked. the bottle is an attractive bleu degrade & the box it comes in is charmingly drawn with a little elephant & flowers etc.

haven't been able to get hold of any, but may l add an amusing little apercu about coty scents in general here? just been reading "the real tsaritsa" by lili dehn and apparently the 4 romanov daughters all wore coty.olga, the eldest,liked rose the while tatiana favoured jasmin de corse.marie tried a lot of scents but always returned to lilas and finally, anastasia used violette.the tsaritsa used atkinson's "white rose" and an unspecified vervaine as an eau de toilette

very very disappointing. basically akin to opening a packet of haribos (kids sweets). but l did buy a "room fragrance" because of the prettily shaped bottle which comes with an old fashioned pump squirter in a little net ( like the prada one).

light & fresh ( l live in the turkish republic of northern cyprus ) so it needs to be ! should think it's a bit too feminine for a man even though it's unisex. quite lemony at first but sweetens down later. not at all long lasting on me & l dropped my spray on a marble floor & rendered it unusable. smashed the glass to get the scent out & filtered it into an empty floris glass splash bottle. it's quite hard to get scents here except at the airport- if they're not on strike - so l go over the border at the foot crossing into the greek side. there are 3 branches of debenhams where one can get most of the major brands. used to live in london where buying scent was a doddle. how one lives & learns !!!
