I immediately get the smell of the roses with this perfume, but it’s not like your usual overly sweet rose, it’s more like a deep and musky smelling one. A lot more sophisticated. The layers of notes in this perfume is quite complex as it’s not what you expect at all. It was inspired my intimacy and warm skin, which can be a little ambiguous as it’s meant to be sexy and seductive, however I feel more cosy and calm with it. The smell at first is a little unusual and over powering, but it settles into a beautiful soft scent. My mum has had this on the last couple days and it makes me just want to cuddle her, for that reason I know see it as a Summer’s Day perfume where you want to smell like a field of flowers, or a ‘mummy perfume’, where you need comforting and to feel loved.
