    This opens with the tuberose, & a fleeting herbal note from the violet leaf. Then, instead of the "tumble of scented petals" l was expecting, the plum note comes right to the fore on my skin, coming off as stale & overripe. There's a hint of vanilla, & jasmine hovering in the background, but l don't get any gardenia, & that stale note totally gets in the way of the florals for me. lt becomes richer & creamier around 40 minutes in, but then fades fast, with not much sillage. Not for me.
