    Yeah, floral musk. On our SotD thread I wrote it is more like deep fried, to the crackly crunch, lilies of the valley simmering in magnolia juice. I either do not like magnolia so much (Guerlain L'Instant would be a fine example of what my skin does not stomach), or there are too many flowers. I need some structure, or, vice versa, some "profusion" as they had promised but did not deliver. Everything is demure, not in your face, but still I will not be wearing this very often.

    Thanks to 30R. for the advice on how to get a sample.

    just a quick thought after testing it last week: does anybody smell the similarity to Heeley`s Ophelia, too?

    This was disappointing to me too. All I get with this fragrance is a sad vegetable broth, no grand floral.

    Absolu was better, the apricot blossom shines for a couple of hours, but it falls as another safe 'nice' scent.
