Hello, everyone, today I am going to review one of my now favorite perfumes. My emotions are still fresh because it was just a couple of days earlier when I fell in love completely with this amazing perfume. But let me first give you some facts about this perfume.

My personal rating: 4 out of 5

Where to buy: Local store or Amazon
I got this perfume from my friend, she was a bit tired of it and decided to give it to me, so I could use it for a while. I used it first on a quite cold day and it was snowing, I can say that this is perfect for this kind of weather. When it’s freezing (I hope I will have a chance to test it in the extremal cold this winter, though the weather forecast is not so optimistic) it must be just delightful. I would never use it in the summer and hot days.
The smell is heavy and enveloping, sometimes it is a bit noisy for me, that’s why I gave it 4 out of 5. It may be too suffocating for people who are wearing it, people around mostly don’t feel it so strongly. I assume that this aroma is quite close to the skin but still it creates a very warm feeling for the people around.
My personal feelings were that this scent is like a warm woolen cloud, that helped me stay warm in nasty weather. I immediately felt orchid, vanilla and I found out that this sweet and warm aroma is a kulfi note, I also feel some slight leather-like note, I guess it comes from the mastic tree.
Anyway, I think that this aroma is not girlish, it’s ripe and mellow, it’s delicious in mostly haute cuisine way not just an ordinary ice-cream from a jar. It is sweet but it won’t make you sweet, it’s strong and warm, it has an attitude, I believe that it brings some sexiness and wisdom or sophistication if you will to the image.
I love this aroma because it’s inspiring for me and I know it will become my close friend this winter.
