This was me and Paestum Rose. It kind of went from "wow" to "oh, that's nice" through no inherent fault of the fragrance. It has peppery, dry, transparent quality that's really refreshing and unique initially, but I find it doesn't really develop too far away from that, and that's where it loses me in comparison to some more multi-faceted roses. It's always pleasant wearing, though.
