(Note: Some time ago Lady Macbeth was reformulated slightly. I think it became more wine-y? Anyway, my bottle is pre-reformulation.)
In bottle: Mmmm, it's so sweet and fruity. I love red currants and the blend with wine is perfect!
On me: PERFECTION! This is my favorite fragrance of them all. To me, currants smell like a perfect mingling of cherries and berries, and this scent retains itsf ruitiness without straying into cherry medicine or bubblegum territory.
In bottle: The alcohol/wine note is definitely more potent in this reformulation. Overall, the fragrance is less sweet; the berry notes dominate in the previous version but are in the background here.
On me: On the skin, the blend mellows quite a bit and becomes very very similar to the original. There isn't enough difference to scream about; but the difference is still there, and noticeable. The newer formula, as I said of the bottle, is much stronger with the wine and alcohol, and there is much less influence by the berries. But the red currant is still rockin' strong, so I'm happy.
