Notes
To quote from fragrantica.com: 
Top Notes: Melon, Pear
Mid Notes: Freesia, Rose
Dry Notes: 
Musk, Patchouli,  Amber, Rhubarb 
    Smelling it straight out of the bottle, there's a fresh floral scent that's almost a bit powdery.
     Freshly applied, all I smell is a fresh floral. As this begins drying down the ^%*^%**!!!! patchouli makes an appearance and you know it's loud and proud and as far as I'm concerned as musty as Cinderella's entire step-family. It smells AMAZING, minus the patchouli overtaking it. I would be raving about it, loving it... minus the patchouli. Such a beautiful fruity floral blend with such an unfortunate uninvited guest. 
     In terms of wear, I had this on for about 10 hours and I cannot smell it at all!
