If you’ve been following this blog, you might look at the note list for this scent and say “What the hell were you thinking??” Jasmine is a major death note for me, apples can be iffy, and ice cream scents tend to turn plastic on me. This perfume has all three of those notes, plus many others. Normally, I would have skipped this scent, but I have seen nothing but glowing reviews for it. Many reviews say that the jasmine and ice cream are barely detectable. But would my gamble pay off or would this be another scrubber?

In the bottle: Wow. I’m getting this absolutely spectacular wisteria note. It’s rich and floral, but not in a “grandma” kind of way. There’s something soft and sweet in the background too.

On the skin: Well, it’s not a scrubber, I’ll say that. But I’m not “wowed” by it. It’s mostly a sweetened wisteria with some soft fruit in there. It’s quite perfume-y too, and it reminds me a lot of a particular Bath and Body Works scent, though I can’t pinpoint which one. It’s pretty, but that’s about it.

TL;DR: Sweet vanilla wisteria and subtle fruit. Like a Bath and Body Works scent. 3.5/5.
