I normally have a hard time finding a great perfume because all the ones I've smelled either a) smells like it has too much alcohol in it 2) smells like it's for an older women or 3) I initially like the smell when I spray it on but as the day goes on I dislike it. This is the first perfume I've found that I like the entire time it lasts. I do wish it would last a longer. The smell stays for a good while, but it tends to get very faint after several hours. The smell is youthful, but I could also see older women wearing it as well (I'm in my twenties).
