I recently received this as a sample with an order from an online cosmetics company and so I gave it a try as it'd be rude not to!
It came in a mini 1.2ml bottle and so I would say I got around 10 sprays out of it. I normally prefer sweet flowery scents, this perfume was quite strong and musky almost. I wouldn't choose to by this- it reminds me a little bit of an old lady perfume and quite cheap- the naff Christmas present type! To be honest, only with a spray on each wrist and my neck- it was so strong it gave me a headache :-( Staying power was excellent (unfortunately!), and even after 12 hours I could still smell the scent on my wrists. Although this perfume was not to my taste, one of my friends did ask me what perfume I was wearing as she said she quite liked it, so it is to someones taste!
This perfume is quite reasonably priced at only £10 for 30ml and £20 for 50ml (this was after a quick browse online). The website describes it as a sensual scent that oozes seduction. It has hints of fresia, mandarin, rose and vetiver.
It is definitley not to my taste, and I will definitely NOT be buying it but as with most perfumes one person will love it and another will detest it!
Its top notes are based on a perfectly balanced mixture of Indian carnation, freesia and osmanthus with light citrus and floral notes / The middle notes blend coriander, pepper and cardamom combined with sensual floral notes such as jasmine and Bulgarian r
