You'd have to be bloody mad to buy it if you smelt it first. I took mine to work, offered it to anyone who wanted it. No-one did. On me it smelt like a mixture of crushed tomato leaves and cough medicine.
On me this was harsh, bitter & dry raspberry & spice.. gave it time but it stayed stinky. If you want something similar but softer, try Hermes Rouge.. spicy smoky & dry oriental, red & rosey.
