Feels like drowning in thick honey with a bucket of overly ripe blackcurrant, strawberry nectar.Hanae Mori is such a warming,sweet scent.it has an old-school vibe to it and is very recognizable as it's been popular for many years.this is like utter sublime divine creaminess in a bottle.i feel like it's the predecessor to Givenchy Organza Ibdecence.

It is all about the dry down,which puts me in mind of warmed vanilla extract: sweet,slightly floral,woody and fruity, but probably not great-tasting on it's own.in fact dries down to an utterly gorgeous and warming balsamic scent.it is sensual without being sexy.it is youthful but not dated,warm without being season specific.i could see however it being slight cloying if used too liberally especially in the heat or if you have naturally oily skin.

Berry Candyfloss made for little girls.
The millionth Angel theme scent based in WAC caramel that has me running away.
Trouble is this cheap base is found in shampoos everywhere. It is depressing.
Go away.

A vaguely, sub-tropical, creamy, fruit stand thing. Very 1990's. Pretty, it doesn't thrill me to the nth degree though. Yet, at the same time, I like it for its time-capsule allure. Floral-fruit-girly-girl. Hints of crispy rose lie beneath the surface. Some greenish combo of jasmine and peony, intrigue me.

Remains "sweet" for a long time. The base is sweet, as well, with a bit of wood, especially sweet cedar wood and almond, too.

Stays sweet. Forever.

Overall, too girly, for me.

I didn't like this on the first try, but I don't think I really gave it much of a chance past the opening. I tried it again and now I really enjoy it after letting it settle down and keeping an open mind. (raspberry and strawberry notes can often go weird and bad on me). I definitely get the creamy/lactonic plastic vanilla strawberry vibe this time. It's very sweet but not annoyingly so (I tend to only like a few gourmands). I find it youthful but not immature (probably with the strawberry and plastic doll head smells), and it's very comforting. It kind of reminds me of wearing a cozy sweater as a kid drinking strawberry milk and playing with barbies, etc. but also a bit more adult and sophisticated with the woods in the base. I'm glad I gave it another chance. I definitely need to be in the right mood to wear it, and it's more of a cozy home scent, but I'm really enjoying it!

I have a small bottle of parfum concentration. While wearing it, it's like my skin is savouring a rich cream cake with plenty of various berries. It smells so creamy! And I thought there must be vanilla, though it's not among the notes. When the floral notes become more prominent, it reminds me of a body cream however I can't remember what it was. After several hours, the sandalwood takes over sweet fruity and floral notes, adding a more mature touch.

It's innocent and romantic, feminity of extreme. The sillage is moderate and the longevity can reach 9h. However I barely wear it outside. It always reminds of a cozy Sunday afternoon when we read a book or spend some quality time with our beloved ones. And I'm always craving a tea or a coffee while wearing this yummy berry cream cake. Guess my small bottle will be ok for a period of time.

I received this as a sample and I absolutely love it. It has such a childlike quality to it. The opening can be nauseating for a bit but once it settles down it becomes very soft and wears close to the skin. Butterfly is the perfect name for it as it's so subtle and quiet until you get close and then it just gently floats around you. This would be the perfect fragrance for anyone dealing with children as it's inviting, sweet and somehow comforting. Great spring and summer scent.
