    Believe by Britney Spears

    On Application This fragrance smells strongly of quite tangy, and sweet guava (which adds nice variedness to the whole redolence of it) at first, but at the same time the delicate nuances of tangerine are not noticeable. Later, among the mid notes there is a sweet and piquant aura (must be the honeysuckle intertwined with the linden blossom which again causes some pleasant variedness) that lingers for the middle note duration (by the way, this is an eau de parfum). After the bottom notes have been dectectable for a few minutes, I noticed an almost smokey woody scent, the name of which I'm not sure, but I liked it combined whith the total scent. To me the bottom notes didn't smell of patchouli, amber or pink pralines.

    Overall this fragrance is NOT flatly and cloyingly sweet, and the scent is very well mixed so that it almost smells like a totally new aroma (except for the pungent guava), which I like very much.
