    Brasil Dream by Estée Lauder

    The opening is bright & effervescent; not really fruity to my nose, but with just enough neroli to give it an edge. The floral notes quickly take over, & although l can't pick them out individually, the jasmine & gardenia combine to create a creamy, classically tropical accord, along with the coconut milk. At this stage it could possibly be cloying if overapplied, but after continuing in this vein for a couple of hours, it slowly becomes softer & creamier, fading out after 5 hours or so.
    I wouldn't call this a "poor girl's Tuberose Gardenia"; it's fun & flirty, casual & playful, where TG is more serious, beautiful, elegant & refined. I love TG, but save it for holidays & special occasions. Brasil Dream is the one l wear whenever l need that "mood lift" Mimi described.
