I started to regret trying this as soon as I dabbed it on my wrists; it reminded me of an orange cleaning solution. BUT, after only a couple minutes it settled down! I was pleasantly surprised. It turns to an earthy floral,not musky, and not what I normally like. If not for the super-high price, I would've already purchased it. So now I need to work on the husband to find out how much HE likes it.
