This perfume is descirbed as 'a sensual and radiant floral fragrance' and I have to say I agree with this statement 100%.
The top notes - which is the initially burst of fragrance when you first apply the fragrance - are 'pepper, peach and orange blossom', heart notes - the dominant scent after the top notes have cleared- are 'peony, jasmine and mandarin' and base notes - the lasting smell after the fragrance has settled on your skin - are ' musk, sandalwood and iris root'. One application, you are hit with a strong overpowering pepper smell...which is an eye opener!!, but this does eventually fade to the more subtle fragrances of the heart notes - which are fantastic.
The staying power is not long as the scent is hardly noticible after 2.5 -3 hours, but I only applied one spray due to the very strong peppery scent.
The bottle is made of clear glass allowing the orangey/peachy liquid to be visible and the lid is orange with silver exterior and it is on this that the letters of the designer have been cut out so to allow the orange colour to come through - which I love!
This scent is memorable, different and sensual and a definite everyday wear. If this fragrance is anything to go by I think I will have a look or 'smell' at the other CL perfumes available out there!!
