It is cool, like an autumn breeze. It is citrucy and on a bitter side. It can be too pungent with carnation and narciss if overapplied. All white flowers make people expect something warmer and lusher, which Eternity is not. Musky ambers are not particularly clean, in general. That is why, IMHO, some people can not wear it and others claim that it is headache inducing. I am NOT one of them, because I adore it: on a good day I get green flowery freshness of an orchard with honey-smelling apples on the ground, that will be covered with early snow in a few weeks.
