Wait for 10 minutes! Got asphyxiated with this perfume at 0730 at Birmingham airport about 2 months ago. Spent the rest of the flight and about 6 weeks wishing I had bought it! Strong and somewhat masculine on initial spray - acidic. Ten minutes later blooms into a lovely fragrance that doesn't become offensive after 13 hours travel. I have worn J'adore for ten years but will replace it with this for everyday - default fragrance. If you are looking for mystique or exotic it is not for you. Cannot buy in department stores in the US. Got mine as a tester on e-bay. Pros: Easy wear - transitions to night. Not offensiveCons: Can't buy in the US"
