This is by far one of my favorite perfumes ever! I remember picking this up when I lived in Japan, I had worn Vera Wangs Princess perfume for about a year but wanted something a little more sophisticated. I picked this perfume and never looked back! I have been using it for almost 8 years now and when I wear it I always get compliments! It is the perfect scent for summer, but honestly I wear it year round! It's scent I s subtle and refreshing, not overbearing like some perfumes can be. It lasts throughout the day fading into a softer version of itself, the bottle is simple but elegant. This perfume is amazing, I've given as gift to my mother and to my friend on your wedding day, they both loved it!
