This fragrance features:
- top notes of blood orange, mango, and papaya
- a middle accord of gardenia, rose, tuberose, and lily
- and base notes of vanilla, patchouli, cedar and musk
Wearing this fragrance is like going on a tropical mini-vacation. Just closing my eyes and sniffing, I could practically hear the sounds of the island birds chirping and the palm trees whispering in the breeze!
The top notes give off a quick fruity blast, followed by the sweet delicacy of the white flowers. The soft musk/woodsy accord gives it a solid depth. My only complaint is that this fragrance disappeared far too quickly. I was hopeful that being oil-based, rather than alcohol-based, it might linger for hours. This was not the case. I had to reapply several times throughout the day to keep it detectable on my skin. Having said that, this would be a good fragrance to wear on a hot summer day, or when you just want to be carried away on a dream of Tahitian flowers!
