This is a strong and long lasting fragrance. It has a heavy Jasmine opening that blends down in just a few minutes. It's the middle notes that sold me, the Arabian rose mellowed-out by the musky oud is so beautiful. This parfum has staying power for sure, so careful on the trigger. This fragrance has a range of about 2 ft on clothing, surrounding you in your space, and will last the workday. The dry down stays feminine, and this scent has a luxury effect about it at a very modest price. If you like oriental floral oud then give it a try.
