Opens with a chemical smell that thankfully goes away in 1 or 2 minutes. Then, although not listed, is a melon note mixed with the earthy smell of patchouli. Perhaps this is the vetiver. Jasmine floral is there as well, although if I had to describe the fragrance, I'd call it green. Nice if you like earthy patchouli, which I do.
I started wearing the edt when it came out, and enjoyed its patchouli-laden freshness. By mistake, I picked up the edp a few years ago. Too lazy to return it, I held onto it, thinking I would learn to like it. I was wrong.
Instead, I learned to love it. Despite the listed notes, it's really just a Meyer lemon, vanilla, patchouli and an understated jasmine. That's it. But for those of us who can't wear high pitched florals, or cedar-bomb citruses, this makes a great warm weather scent. Polished, but decidedly unfussy.
For the first time since it came out, I do not own a bottle. Miss Dior edp has replaced it-- well, if not the scent itself, the function of it; a pretty, socially friendly compliment magnet.
