    I have tried it and liked it, although I should really revisit it, that was quite a while ago. I remember it as a soft, smooth and slightly leathery amber, very pleasant, something of a skin scent.

    I smell lots of flowers as cyclamens and violets in a musky accord.

    Interesting....I think of this as a sweet floral vetiver scent, but there is also a soft woody oriental base to it. Hard to pin down the notes. But it's one of my favorites.

    It has sweet and citrusy elements but unfortunately also something that turns bitter on my skin. I ended up not really liking it.

    Any other thoughts on this one? I received a sample in the male. I am completely baffled by its gender. I am starting to think it sways more to the fem side. Not that it matters but, its almost too sweet for me to pull off. A very lovely fragrance indeed.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?
