Sweet but sharp. The vanilla adds to the scent but it doesn't scream out it's presence. It'll be interesting on.
After Wearing It:
Dragon's resin dominates the scent for at least an hour. Not much of a vanilla scent at first. Very heady, musky and almost fruity. Sort of the like the way your mind feels when you're walking through a smoky club/bar and you're only two drinks away from needing someone to carry you. That lovely sort of internal padded cell mindset (or maybe that's only me when I'm drunk....). After an hour the vanilla becomes more apparent, making the scent sweeter and less foggy. About hour 5, the dragon's resin and vanilla have faded a bit and the smell reminds me a bit of baby powder. You can still smell traces of the original scent, but it's mingled into a powdery aroma. Nice, but since I prefer the original scent, I might reapply around hour 4. I could still smell it on my wrists about hour 7, when I decided to reapply.
I like this, but with all of my other BPAL scents, I don't find myself reaching for it. Beautiful, but not as provocative as some of the other scents
