I tested recently with the SA swearing blind it was a unisex scent and that I would love it. So basically, both assumptions incorrect. The top notes are actually pretty good (the perfumers usually make sure of this) but after browsing and testing other scents for 10 minutes or so, the tester for this started booming out ISO E Super or something similar and completely drenched any vetiver or vanilla that was listed in the base. The coconut/sage molecules in the heart must have been microscopic. A real horrorshow of a fragrance. The other newly launched rice based scent from this House was equally disappointing. ELdO seems to be going backwards, which would be a real shame.
