This perfume unfolds just incredibly. The opens with a citrus burst for about 5 minutes max, and then goes into vanilla, some white flowers so softly. It then gradually as it warms on the skin the vanilla gets deeper but as does the smell of milk, cream, some soft crème brulee. It stays very long on the skin and it gets soft mellow vanilla with a tinge of chocolate here and there and so much more. It's really a gorgeous perfume.
