Yup, the ad is cheese, but the girl within me is attracted to the thought of smelling like strawberries, sugared rose petals, powdery white flowers and cake. What can I say? I'm also a sucker for pink. I recently tried this scent and even though what I got was all that plus patchouli (it's a lot like Britney Spears Fantasy and a bunch of others similar to it), I liked it. I found it sweet, soft (sort of white chocolate-like), warm, and neither earth-shattering nor cutting edge but pleasant. Apparently, it was pleasant for others to smell on me when I sampled it, too, because I was told it was nice and even asked to wear it again. Are you getting ready to enjoy your favorite spring fragrances yet? It's still pretty cold where I am, but we're catching up on low temps after a strangely warm winter, no doubt due to global warming. I hope to get this fragrance soon, and I plan to alternate it with another unexpected new love, Guerlain Mitsouko, a whole other ball of wax and a scent I usually find too strange to take. It must be Spring in the air--I'm fighting a cold but my spirit is feeling hopeful, ready to see things from a fresh, new light.
