About this deal

Heeeavy on the berry smell at first, mellows out to a spicier scent, but still rather sweet and nectary. Succulent blood orange, chilled vodka and vine-ripe tomato provides a splash to the senses, while an intoxicating dewy floral accord evokes a stylish sensuality. Perhaps for others it's not like this, but I will say, you couldn't PAY ME to wear this perfume for even one day! In my opinion, it would be a perfect gift for Valentine's day as perfume comes in a heart shaped bottle! I am reminded a bit of Jimmy Choo; however this is less "date night" and lacks the stronger patchouli and buttery toffee notes I found so intoxicating in JC.

I've learnt I can tolerate these types of fragrances if I spray them on my clothes, but not onto my actual skin. The top notes are pretty sharp and remind me of another DKNY scent in the Be Delicious variety, but once those dry down (and they do quickly, in about 5 minutes) it really reminds me of La Vie Est Belle. Unfortunately it really does, but there's still something nice about it, almost like a note trying to poke through the syntheticness.

The Bottom Line: This fruity-floral fragrance will please lovers of sweet, feminine mainstream scents. With a perfume that's supposed to be inspired by the individuality and the idiosyncrasy of being in New York, one might expect something a little more, well, unexpected, unusual and wild. It seems to have been intended as an autumnal scent, but I think it would depress me in that season. The perfume itself was a lot milder than I thought it would be - but then again with mainstream perfumes, this is probably to be expected.

The heart shaped glass flacon with its lid shaped like skyscrapers contain a sweet patchouli fragrance. Top notes are Raspberry, Pink Pepper and Galbanum; middle notes are Egyptian Jasmine, Freesia and Orris Root; base notes are Patchouli, Vanilla Absolute, Musk and Ambergris. Ya know, there isn't many perfumes out there that actually make me want to wash it off of my skin immediately after spraying, I will let just about any perfume sit a while before making any decisions!You can definitely describe this one as a fruitchouli as you can pick both - fruit notes and patchouli (both I love). I just purchased this blind at tjmaxx but ohhhh my goodessss, I mean wow so amazing it does remind me of coco mademoiselle but instead of that GRAPEFRUIT I get the RASPBERRY for sure.
