I bought this based on the other reviews. I was extremely unsure, because I hate the idea of spending so much money on a crapshoot, but it is EVERYTHING the reviews said, in the best possible way. I wanted a scent that smelled like fresh cut wood and nature and the wind. I abhor sea scents, but this is my one lifetime exception to that. It captures the freshness of walking around in the woods with the ocean somewhere but you can't see it. It is rich and gratuitous while being light and guiltless. The scent tends to become, shall we say, subtle after a while, but I can still catch snippets of it in the second half of my day without a second application. I will definitely be buying the larger version when this one runs out.
