Ohh, i wish i had a better nose to pick out all the different scents. My first whiff of this I think was the patchouli, deep and a bit earthy, within a few minutes, the honey. I don't know if it's mixed with the ylang, ylang and that's why it's so sweet or not (or is that the fig) I just know that it smells so much like Lush's discontinued bnever to busy to be beautiful shower gel that I just received. Very honey. It stays that way to me, mellowing a bit, but that sweet, rich, honey smell. It's a scent I am still having to get used to, but not one I'm ready to give up on. I think it is one that I will appreciate over time. It really is very beautiful and I think even elegant and luxurious.
ADDED April 14:
First Impression: HONEY!
Second Impression: Why do I do it to myself? Why do I love that thick, honey scent and why does it hate me so? The honey and patchouli combination is gorgeous, but fleeting. Then it turns all honey and ylang ylang on me and starts to go all sickly sweet, powdery and day-old dirty sex. Just like O, just like La Petit Mort, just like every honey blend in the catalog. I've tried them all.
Final Analysis: I'm going to keep trying and hoping that someday a honey blend is going to love my skin.
LOL Andrabell! I can't help it - I love smelling like dirty sex (although I'll hush about the day old part LOL)...and every time I see your Ron Jeremy avatar I just crack up...all I can hear is a lilting "yooohoooo" in Ron Jeremy's voice!
I find Hetairae is the only honey blend I've tried thus far that actually stays true. Jezebel and O don't work on me at all....and yet this, does okay.
