Daim Blond does come across as very feminine smelling on a strip or from the bottle, but in fact it works very well on my skin.
This is an amazing fragrance but waaay too light! Not much to add about the smell itself that hasn´t already been covered by earlier reviewers - other than that it is a very evocative scent - dreamlike and mesmerizing. When experiencing it I imagine a large piece of the finest suede delicatly sprinkled with jasmine flowers and ripe, fuzzy apricots. The end result is just fantastic, tender and completely unlike perfume as we are used to it. It is the olfactory representation of an idealized scent of human skin - musky but clean and inviting. One of many Lutens fragrances that are the testament of the resident genius in this house.
