I've had lotions of three fragrances, all orientals: Shalimar, Ralph Hot, and Carlos Santana for Women. The Shalimar is a little more lemony in lotion form, with a little less smoke, and very pleasant and wearable. I put the EdT over the lotion. Ralph Hot lotion is very similar to the EdT. Carlos Santana is fruitier in lotion form, and happens to be a very good dry skin lotion. That's all I can tell you.
