Hi, this was one of the first scents I ever sampled, so ti would have been before I had a built up 'olfactory database'. I remember my SO caught wind of me and said, "Oh, that smells nice", and usually he just says i smell like his mother.
This wasn't a love, must have for me, but it was by far not a stinker. It's hard to find this line for testing, I know. I usually get my samples from Lucky Scent. As far as the house goes, the ingredients are usually high, and if i ever dislike something from this house it's because of personal prefernces, NOT bad ingredients, poor mixing, etc
