I've never smelled the original, Dodo, but this is delightful. Something about the mango and lemon comes across as floral. Maybe it's the agarwood. Supposedly agarwood can smell floral. Basically, you've got to love apples and florals to like this one. At first, it's a bright, sweet apple-floral-pink musk situation. Perfume-y, with good throw. After some time, the apple takes a small step back and the sandalwood comes forward. I don't really detect the cassia. I'm sure time will bring the woodsy bits forward.

Want to add that this is now one of my top 3 favourite apple BPALs in my obsessive apple collection.

This here be a more whimsical Bobbin.

 

Well-sugared pinkish apples and musk, what I thought at first was pink grapefruit but may be the lemon mingling with pink musk, and a relatively mellow mango.

 

Fruity, sugary, pinkish, playful.

I agree that there's something coming across as floral here! It's very...pink apples + light sugared floral, on me. I don't really get cassia or anything woodsy, which is fine - I was here for the apples and fruit!

 

I would've liked the mango to be a little louder, I think - I like juicy fruit-basket scents! But this is very pretty, too. It's almost a springtime scent, if springtime apples are a thing: pink, pretty, floral, sparkly apples. Good throw, so far!

A fruity/citrusy floral scent. On the initial application, I could pick out the apple, but it quickly melds with the lemon peel to give an overall all citrus leaning fruit smell. Still very fresh and bright. There a strong floral-mint component of the scent, that I assume is coming from the cassia mixing with the apple and lemon peel. Overall, a fresh and bright, citrus-floral scent, but I was expecting more apple.
