I've patch-tested this one three times now, and I keep putting off a review, thinking, "I'll review it when it's had a chance to rest more and I can really get the sense of it." I'm starting to think it may just be a scent that's so gentle it'll never give me a great big signboard what to write!

It really is lovely--such a soft, mellow blending of these pretty notes. The hawthorn gives it just a gentle blossomy waft, and the red musk offers just a hint of berry-ness. It's beautifully feminine without being overly sweet or overly anything, really; on me, none of the notes seem to dominate to a great extent. A skin scent on me, but quietly persistent. I would love it if it had more throw, but even at its low volume, I delight in the little wafts I get from it. So pretty!

I forgot how lovely this scent is. I was a little apprehensive with this scent because it has amber in it. Amber typically goes powdery on my skin, but I'm able to wear this amber. It will be my number 1 repurchase during the next retour. I need a big bottle of this.
