The color of this one really reminds me of aged Vivienne Westwood's Boudoir -- orange! (Fresh Boudoir is pink, I'm told.) And so when I sprayed it, I couldn't help but think of Boudoir! I have to go back and sample Boudoir and see if that note that I couldn't place was maybe lilac? But is it really lilac essential oil? Or is it just lilac -- the note? I can smell that soapy smell that I've come to believe is vetiver. And that makes it have that "round" (I don't have a better word to describe it) smell that fresh lilacs have. But it's not just lilac. It's also really musky. Almost like Boudoir in that viburnum/fish-sauce like smell. I'm surprised that Neil Morris marketed it for men, because it smells very feminine to me. On the right person, I think it would be really sexy, but that person is not me. Sillage is moderate. Not monstrous. And that's something I appreciate. It stays relatively close to my skin, and lasted all day and then some (>12 hours).
