I was ready to buy this perfume. I am very much a fan of unique smells and this is not your typical retail perfume. It does have strong vanilla and spice notes which I loved. It reminded me of warm baked goodies! It is a cozy winter scent and the staying power is impressive. However, after a few days of wearing it, the scent made me feel nauseous. On my skin it died down to a strong cinnamon smell which was overpowering. Everybody's body chemistry is different and so I would recommend those looking for a warm vanilla scent to give this a try. It is a shame this particular scent didn't work for me but the quality has convinced me to try other Harvey Prince scents.
