Latest Reviews of Panda (original)
I feel like it's comforting in a way, but it's not something I'd wear really. I'm not sure how realistic it is for a panda's environment.
Panda smells a lot like that, with the effect aided as the scent evolves by a delicate osmanthus & tea accord + a "watery" floral accord (which I guess would be the listed lily and mimosa). Dries to a nice smooth earthy-woody-musk base and retains the rainforesty effect of the opening for an impressive amount of time.
The one I smelled is the original version. There was a re-formulation that apparently made the opening sweeter and fruiter, and removed some of the foliage effect, if reviews are to be believed.
The earthiness, representing the forest floor, is the same as I included in my wedding perfume for my daughter - very difficult to get the dosage exactly right, but the balance is nicely achieved. A successful marriage of fruity-green, floral and earthy: surely a recipe for happiness.
