Coconut hit straight away, on wet, then it retreats and out comes the jamsmine and tuberose. This is warm, buttery, and reminds me of a country cottage with dog roses and jasmine in the garden, maybe some honeysuckle climbing up the walls.
This is a beautiful floral, another Calice Becker and so very lovely. The coconut top note is so soft and gentle, be assured wearing this will NOT make you smell like a glass of Malibu.
The buttery tuberose is delicous, I think this could be lovely Valentine's scent because while it's not in yer face sexy like Agent Provocateur, it is alluring, and draws you in. This morning when I put it on, I thought it was pretty, but not for me. This evening I'm less sure, certainly it's different from a lot of scents I love, but I can see there would be occasions when this is perfect. (Sadly, I've just asked Matt to sniff me, and he's gone "meh", so not worth a splash out on a bigger decant. Probably just as well...)
Samples of this come around occasionally on ebay, alternative, The Perfumed Court do decants, which is just as well (see previous blog sighings about the cost of this niche perfume house).
