I found the sweetness and orangey note a little disturbing at first, and the first time I tested it, I didn't buy it. But I had sprayed some on my skin, and as it dried down, I decided I should give it another try the next time I was in the place where they were selling it. I went back, tried it again, and bought it on the spot! I've worn it a few times now. I also like the Santal Impérial a lot (original formulation date 1850!).
