Parfums de Nicolaï Eau d'été

I love Eau d'été; I went from thinking it was a beautiful yet simple, fresh, lemon-lime-orange jasmine as effervescent as ginger ale, to discovering that it turns exceptionally musky and slightly warm, pungent, even musty on dry down, but intriguingly floral. This one is for people who aren't afraid of indolic jasmine. Despite its name, I ironically couldn't wear it during warm weather due to its muskiness but what a pretty cold weather scent it makes for me. I have gotten raves on this scent more than once from different people, so I know it works very well with my chemistry. This smells very natural to me, with real citrus oils.
