I hadn't read the reviews before receiving my bottle -- I like trying to sort things out myself -- but I was hoping for some gardenia and orange blossom love.
In the bottle: Creamy and sweet. "Cake" was the first thing that came to mind, although it doesn't smell precisely foody.
Wet: I think someone above said "orange creamsicle" and that's about what I got. The mandarin is bright and clear, as citrus notes usually are for me when wet, but there's also a creamy vanilla/amber sweetness right along with it. Not really catching any floral notes.
Dry: A straight-up sweet vanilla-y sort of scent. D'oh! I expected the mandarin to fade -- citrus always does -- but I was hoping for a hint of florals. Alas.
I could definitely see folks loving this, but it's just not for me.
