This was a freebie sent along with my order, and to be honest from the site's description, I was never keen on it. Delight sounded too floral for me, and I always associated the scent of rose with the scent of Eau de Old Lady With Too Much Perfume On. So I didn't think I would be too delighted with Delight.
This is one of the last ones that I've tried in my batch that I received, and you know what? I am quite surprised.
Out of the bottle I was like, "eh," but upon actually taking the plunge and putting some on my wrists, I found a long-lasting, potent scent that evoked incense and mystery. Although this one is very floral, the scents that my skin brought out had a bit of a spicy edge to them to counteract the rose, which was the note I noticed the most, so this wasn't something I felt was particularly "flowery."
I really like this, and I look forward to eventually purchasing a 5 ml bottle. It's not something I would wear every day, because I think Delight is a very complex and intense fragrance that would be perfect for evening tea dates or walks by the moonlight. It reminded me a little bit of the bottle of Tresor my mother has, but I think Delight smells much better.
Although it smelled nice on me, keep in mind body chemistry has a lot to play in the dictation of the scent. A guy at my job liked it so much he tried on some of Delight on his wrists, and then wailed "Oh no! I've made it smell like English Leather!!"
