In the bottle: A bit like ginger honey candy.
On skin, wet: It's not the traditional thing I would wear, but I like it, though the mango butter sort of sneaks up like it's going to turn to tanning oil on me and be way too tropical. But it does stay to the back of this. I love ginger, so it is nice the ginger out in front is GINGER. As the top notes fade, ginger mingles with a pretty floral and resin base, though it is a bit sweet for me.
But, what I got it for is to see if it affects people around me, not just if I like it. It tends to work for me in situations where I have to deal with someone who isn't pleasant. If they are rude to me, they tend to be less rude when I where this and what I say seems to have more impact and be more positive, creating a good communication space. Maybe that's the attention part of this. So I wear it when I need people to listen to me and not give me any lip!:)
Overall: It's sweet buttery ginger, which is on the borderline of me not liking it, because I am not a butter or sweet fan. But, it has given me good results, proving there are many buttery sweet ginger fans out there who are mellowed out by the scent and therefore will listen to me and do my bidding. JK about the last part, but I would recommend it for the shy violets out there.
