The packaging on the mini is OK, I assume that the bigger bottle is much prettier. The fragrance in my opinion is quite strong and does not dry down and become "fragrant" for a very long time. In most situations, this might be good thing and would have you feeling that the fragrance has stayed with you throughout the day, Not with Forever, The alcohol is pungent and a bit offensive. I think if you are a fan of White diamond you may possibly like this. I did not.
