I was a little disappointed in the packaging. I prefer my perfume samples in a spray sampler vs. a vial like this packaging. I agree with both reviewers - I could smell lilac but I could also smell the harsher woody tones. I wouldn't describe it so much as woody as I would more baby powder-y /talc powder - not my favorite.
When I first put it on I smelled the overwhelming baby powder smell, then a twinge of citrus - and then it just kept altering between the harsher baby powder/ dish soap smell and the sweet pleasant lilac. I really wished this product could just hit the lilac floral scent and do away with the harsher overtones.
I don't think perfume can really be age-typed but if you like a stronger musky-ish smell this product would be for you.
