As a fragrance, however, the scent is a sparkly but surprisingly gutsy floral that's nothing like the fruity scents crowding department store displays. Instead, it comes on strong with heavy citrus (think a slightly more caustic, floral-orange blossom), then veers all over the place. It has a rather complex development, and it's a wholly different scent two hours after you spritz than it is 30 minutes in. The lasting power is also great, and the soft jasmine at its heart lends a pretty touch. If you get the chance to sample, it's a richly rewarding wear.
