I have been hesitant to make a huge investment on perfume in the past, but when I tried this as a sample I fell in love so hard that I immediately bought a big bottle. It is a musky rick vanilla, with out the syrupy sweet notes that smell juvenile in other Vanilla perfumes. My only complaint ( which isn't a complaint at all, really) is it's super subtle and not necessarily long lasting. It makes it about 1/2 through the work day, and no one ever compliments me on my scent unless we are in an embrace. I'd like for it to be a little stronger and last a little longer, but I absolutely love it over all.
