I begged for this and got it from a boyfriend. I quickly tired of it, it was too strong, obnoxiously. I ended up giving it away but made them promise never to wear it around me. I never smelled berries or incense. To me berries should smell like a blackberry patch heated by the sun, so there's a silky thick pool of intoxicating, sweet blackberry heaven. The same with raspberries or strawberries. Loved the pretty bottle though.
