Bottle: Koolaid. Ugh, close imp, go on to next.
It was seriously an initial turn-off for me, but later, when I was wallowing happily in Lust and my youngest daughter came up and begged, I opened the Black Lotus for her.
On: Whoa. Hold the bus. That's not how it smelled in the bottle at all. Very ... pink, still, very girly and sweet, but it's not Koolaid anymore either.
Later: Kid still smells very good. Mellowing down to something more subtle, with a darker hint beneath that sugary surface (oddly enough, just like the daughter in question).
It's too sweet and floral for me, I like darker, spicier, woody and earthy scents, but it's utterly fabulous on my daughters, who adore it.
ADDED July 6:
It's not lasting very well on me, but I'm starting to like it.
The scent gets very smokey on me after a while, drying down the very sweet that doesn't quite work on me. A fun light scent, still too sweet for my personal tastes, but it might be a nice wedding/baby shower/girl's day at the spa scent.
