    might be wise to talk to supermarky about a decant before buying a full-bottle blind...

    I bought a full size bottle of this the first week it came out. One of the best new releases in a long time. I would say its a dark floral....nothing bright and cheery about it. Also, maybe a little similiar to Youth Dew.

    I too would advise a decant. It is powerful stuff and would please you if you like Angel or Youth Dew Amber Nude. Check out the reviews at Now Smell This ( or the Bois de Jasmin blog. It's not a middle of the road fragrance - Tom Ford designed it with retro glamour in mind.

    You better try it first. I was disappointed. It starts dark and peculiar, and than a watery note creeps in and make it smell like a (better, but still not my cuppa) Allure Sensuelle with that watery patchouli note. It's a perfume that develops backwards from fabulous to mediocre.
