At first: This spilled in the mail, so the whole order smells very perfumy, almost like laundry detergent. I swiped some of it on me, DH and DD before I cleaned up the other vials. It continued to smell perfumy and strongly floral. Very much like a room freshener. Not really my thing.
Dry Down: On me it gets very spicy and sweet, slightly floral. Smells almost like cinnamon. It reminds me of going to the Santa Cruz boardwalk in the off season. Cold ocean wind, cotton candy and ice cream, salt air. My sister sniffed me and said "Wow, that smells really beautiful on you."
On DH it's pretty much the same, although his skin just sucked it in. I have to really sniff his neck to find it (which he enjoys
). I think it's spicier on me.
The big surprise was DD. She ran off to play outside, and when she came back in she smells just gorgeous. There is a note that is not at all present on either of us adults. Vanilla, cinamon, honey and lovely spiciness that is exactly the way a little girl should smell. Too bad a three year old can't have a signature scent, because my goodness! She smells lovely.
I like this very much, but I'm sad that it doesn't smell on me the way it does on the baby. I think there will be a more perfect scent somewhere else for DH, but I might order this for myself in a larger bottle.
ETA: This lasted *forever* on me. I actually had to wash it off the morning after I applied it so I could put something else on. I wish I could get Manaed to do that.
