I feel beamed back to SE Asia. Walk into a hotel lobby (Bangkok or Ko Samui) and smell that neroli scent. Escape the sweltering heat, the air-contion is humming and there are exotic fruits in the lobby!
I have never smelled the original so don't have that to compare it against, however it smells exactly how it is described - like an expensive hotel lobby in Hong Kong.
Surprisingly heavy for a predominantly floral fragrance - it packs a punch.
This is very neroli heavy, so you have to be a fan of this note to appreciate this fragrance.
