I have been using this perfume since it first came out in 1992. Of course, it will smell different on different people. On me it is a very mild and fresh floral scent. Within minutes of putting it on, I no longer smell it but others can still smell it on me hours later. I am always getting compliments on how it smells and people asking me what perfume I am wearing. In the 21 years that I have been wearing this perfume, I have never found one that I like more, and that doesn't give me a headache!
