I love this fragrance. It reminds me of lovely smell of the night-blooming jasmine bushes that my grandmother had outside her bedroom windows, but it has a fresh scent, not heavily sweet or cloying. Undoubtedly this is due to the presence of the other fragrance notes in it which are described as nougatine (like nougat candy- yum) and woodsy. Overall it is a fairly long-lasting fragrance, while not being overpowering when it first is applied. This subtle first impression is important to me because I have a husband who complains right away if I overdo the scent application, and the longevity of the scent is important to me because I do not like to have to reapply fragrance during the day. I'm happy with this luxurious fragrance.
