I agree with you about the plastic snake, although I think the bottle itself is pretty cool.
Well l went for it & got a bottle of Oro off ebay, & l really like it! l wouldn't describe it as particularly floral; l do get a hint of magnolia, but wouldn't have recognised it had l not been looking for it. What l do get is a quite boozy opening, followed by warm, golden, spiced apples, & then a gorgeous, ambery-woody base. lt has quite a light feel despite the spices, in a way reminiscent of Ambre Narguile, & l think it would work for daytime in cold weather. lt's also very comforting. l can't believe so few people seem to know about this one, & it's not even expensive! Highly recommended, people!
The only downside, & it's a small one, is that plastic snake! The bottle itself is quite cool although l would prefer a proper lid, but the snake just looks tacky & cheap in real life. Fortunately it comes off easily!
Thanks again for the rec Evangeline, another winner!
