I have the shower gel of this scent & it so lush & lovely, I just LOVE the dry cedar in this - cedar usually feels too masculine on my skin, but this has a cool sweetness that is so good, it also has an amazing zingy note that occasionally finds my nose that has to be the ginger - can someone tell me if the spray scent is the same as the shower gel? If so, I want!!!!
BTW: I get that some may compare this to Light Blue, but this is a far more feminine & sophisticated fragrance to me. It does though, remind me of India Hicks Island living - I had a little shower gel & lotion of this & they were fab, this has a similar feel which is a good thing IMO.
It smells very fresh and relaxing, but it doesn't last not one hour. I swear it goes away in like 5-10 minutes. It reminds me of d&g light blue but this has more of a sophisticated touch to it. Too bad it doesn't last on my skin :(
I don't really like perfumes typically relegated to summertime. But where I live it's been absolutely horribly humid. Like Caribbean tropics humid. For a month straight. Soon, all the pine trees will be replaced by palm trees. THAT humid. Most of my perfumes are too heavy for it, even my poor Stella McCartney doesn't like this weather. So I wanted something that was light as air, refreshing, but still has a heartiness to it. So yesterday, to avoid the soupy air on a long walk, I ducked into a shop that sells caudalie...I casually picked up this bottle, as I've never sniffed any of the vignes perfumes. Behold. Love at first sniff. I really loved this on my skin under the hot waxiness of the July air quality in my city. I don't expect this "refreshing water" to have great longevity. I just want to smell fresh and lovely when it's near impossible to smell like anything but hot sticky sweat. I love the mix of the florals with this tea note, held together by a smooth wispy non-oppressive musk. Perfection.....
Overall i would recommend and is a good gift.
