I do wonder sometime am I being a little too 'vain' feeling the need to top up my perfume when I've got into work, from getting ready in the morning and leaving the house. Well I belive not, I've sprayed this perfume so that I am to write up this review, and no sooner have I sprayed it I can't smell it no more. The perfume despite how pretty the bottle looks, just can't hold it's scent that well. After some research I believe this came out in July 2009, and it's just one of a long list of perfumes by the strictly dominated makeup brand.
Once again I struggle to pick out the various scents that make up this perfume. So I have researched the exact scents online. Personally I can't sniff out much of the below, but I can confirm it does smell very oriental. So many perfumes these day describe themselves to have some oriental part to it, and personally I can never smell it. However this perfume I can definitely confirm it's there, I don't know were exactly; top notes, bottom notes or what, but it's there somwere. Oriental-floral fragrance which features notes of mango, freesia, lily, jasmine, peony, white caramel, musk and vanilla, taking us to art deco style salon.
As originally said, I bought mine of ebay so this was a little cheaper than the normal store price; but please find below some prices online I have found for you. Now I found these findings quite unusual. Normally you can always pick u perfumes on more discounted sites for a little cheaper than the original.

Considering the experience I've had with this one, I can't say I'd purchase any of the other scents form the line; if they was bought as a gift I would of course try them though.
