      Hi everyone,

      Today I have sampled my last sample from Mr Bailey and here are my comments:

      Sample 1- Scent of Romance:

      Beautiful rose scent with notes of carnations, orange blossom, jasmine and ylang ylang...a beautiful floral scent with great longevity and sillage...very romantic and seductive... with a definite feminine feel...

      Sample 2 - Queen of Sheba:

      The scent consists of a powerful long lasting rose note balanced with frankincense, myrrh, jasmine and oud notes...this is a very sophisticated floral oriental very well blended...although the wearer must allow a few hours for the notes yo reveal themselves...this is a powerful scent with great longevity and sillage so apply with also has a very definite feminine touch...

      Sample 3 - Victoria:

      This scent is the most appealing to me out of the 3 samples as it is the most unisex of the consists of a lovely blend of jasmine and muguet, enriched with orange flower, cassia and rose giving a lovely frehness...with good longevity and moderate sillage...I really love the blend in this one...

      Hope you all try them and enjoy them too...:smiley:
