    Insensé Ultramarine by Givenchy

    YUKKKKKKK! Gagggggg..... Having bought a bottle at a frangrance store who didn't have a tester and the box was sealed, I had faith in Givenchy as I loved the majority of their fragrances, especially the ORIGINAL Insense (love it!!!), I went ahead and bought a 3.4-ounce bottle. When I got to my car, I sprayed some on and literally felt like I had to vomit! It did not smell blue, it did not smell aquatic, it did not smell fresh, it did not smell marine, BUT it smelled like emesis. I swear it had no defining quality about it. Pretty much smelled like the chemicals in an unscented hair spray. BARFFFFFF! This happened once when I sprayed a brand new bottle of Declaration by Cartier. That one, though, finally settled down into smelling like the original, a little like Armani pour homme (original), but not as citrusy. Anyway, it sits atop the shelf in my wardrobe, perhaps used in the future to scent my toilet tissue roll...
