This is a nice, unique scent. It's structure is quite different than most. Very heavy on amber and cedarwood. At first you get the unique hit of powdery cedarwood, patchouli and sandalwood, then a middle accord of herbaceous spices and a super ambery base of frankincense, myrhh, balsam and raspberry. It's quite a unique scent and the only one that's closely related, to my nose, is Bal A Versialles. Ciara comes in 80, 100 and 200 strength, 200 is best, 100 is very good and 80 is good but a bit more powdery. They all have that Ciara-ness to them. I'll always relate this scent to Daytona Beach when I was 14 because my stepmother wore it with ablomb on that vacation, it smelled so good on here, very ambery and it somehow fit the sweltering heat. I believe she wore the 200 strength in the dab on bottle. I for one hope Revlon never discontinues this scent. It's the best mass market one I think.
