you have to wear SMN to understand it, in my opinion. Like Potpourri, for example, changes as the day goes on. That's a fragrance. My opinion is you cannot judge any fragrance upon smelling in a bottle, unless it's not dynamic. I like Polo Blue, for example, in the bottle.. what you smell is what you get. With the SMNs I have tried, the scent changes a lot after you apply it.
