How? I Apply the Fragrance

3 to 9 spraye

A very clean Accord. This is so nice off my skin from the get go. It smells like a super clean room. I have smelled this in hotels before like almost right after the maid is finished with the room. The window is open. This is from high end hotel if that helps reminds me of my stay at the Ritz in Maui. Walking down into the enormous lobby. An izone sniff that is reminiscent of after rain. I get a soft green apple note. I get the sweetness everyone talks about, but I don't pick up the cotton candy I have heard a lot about. More of a Taffy for me the kind being made right next to the cotton candy.. Power projection. I went to coffee dried up and put on as close to half a spray as possible. And I think I drown out a couple people. They even shut the door where food was being prepared. Oops, maoit wasn't me and if it was I blame Francis. This is definitely it's own fragrance for that alone a major collection would be happy with this original piece. For me it brackets on that price range I really reflect if I want it in mine. Is it occasion worthy, which one's Can I wear it throughout the day without worrying about offending people. Will it drown me out in a workout I could see this as a possible conference fragrance, but it's competing with a few others and how will half the conferences I go to I can spray this on while i'm there. The dry down starts in only about 90 minutes. (Yikes how much was this fragrance?). The projection is still prominent. fai whiffs of the top hang around.. The Maison DNA it's an easy dry down full of a synthetic backbone. Kinda like an aquatic Oriental. It's a decent composition that compliments it's base and top choice a lot more than your left with. But you are left with the dry down for quite awhile so it's something you need to make sure you like. I still don't have my mind made up if I want to spend all day with this. In a conference fragrance it's easy enough to be pleasing to everyone off my skin and I move enough for it not to bother me. I again get that Maui feeling with this in that MFK house accord.
