A fresh and bright bergamot note dominates the opening phase, accentuated by a fruity undertone that adds pleasant depth.  

Soon a floral side comes into the foreground, sporting a pleasant tuberose impression. Still on the brighter side, not too sweet and not particularly waxy, this is an easy-going tuberose that lacks any heaviness. White floral undertones are present at times.  

The base adds a woodsy note, with a smooth vanilla gradually taking over towards the end. Continuing the overall thrust of the development of this composition, this vanilla is on the lighter side,pleasantly sweet and never cloyingly heavy. 

I get moderate sillage, very good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.  

A pleasant floral with a vanilla coda, this is nice in spring. Not particularly original but crafted well. 3/5.
