I wanted to like Daim Blond in the worst way, but I just couldn't. I am too girly, and must have my flowers, preferably without noticable fruit.
The Douce Amere is good for me, however. I am major fond of an anise note in about anything, and if it's obvious, then I will obviously like it. It's interesting to me to be in the minority! I don't like amber at all. I don't like a chocolate note. I don't like clove and exotic spices.
I do like this Creed Vanisia I am testing today. I believe it has an anise note!
