SMW is really unique. I reccomend you use a good portion of the sample for a full wear, it really opens up and shines. Sometimes it takes me awhile to really "get" a scent. After wearing scents for over 20 years; Im finally understanding that the scents I instantly love, end up not so special/ get boring, and its the ones that I may not like at first, I end up loving. Example, Egoiste, Amber Absolute, Pure Havane, and yes, Silver Mountain Water.
