The first time I smelled this, I thought it smelled very spicy and overpowering and I really didn't like it, but after trying it on my skin, the scent softened up and smelled phenomenal. I really like the smell now, especially once it softens up. It's almost a bit musky, but I really like how long the scent lasts. Like all perfumes, it does have a bit high of a price tag for what a college student is typically used to, but I bought a normally $110+ bottle of it for $85 on a cruise on Spring Break, so that definitely sweetened the deal. I think this is a great scent, but like all perfumes I highly recommend getting a sample to see how it mixes with your natural scent, as I've had perfumes I've loved in bottle but hated once I've sprayed it on myself.
