What i smell under my nose? Well, at the beginning an haunting tea note or may be camomille (that i detect throughout), a touch of honey, citrus, some botanic/grassy accents and gardenia. The influence by lily and jasmine comes out at distance and not in a sort of accessorial way (expecially the lily) but with dominant and sheer intensity while the soapiness is well balanced and just vaguely soothing. Nothing particular spicy or mysterious, namely an utterly different olfactory fatigue in comparison with its infamous old parent, the great Opium. The dry down is woody in a sort of light, vaguely aqueous, peppery and floral way with a sensual secret (sort of sweaty) feminine touch that is probably the best part of this modern and unpretentious concoction. I don't find the juice utterly sweet, expecially due to its sour lily surrounded by light woods and aqueous elements while the synthetic vibe is never out of control. I just say not bad and go on guys.
