I don’t know what the LDBS smells like, but this one is amazing. When i purchased this, i had my doubts about the durability, but it lasted 10 hours on my arm when i tested with only one spray. Also you can feel the changes when drying very well, from a fresh and spicy beginning, to a white floral and finally to a sweet marshmallow.
I absolutely adore this scent. It’s more than just any old marshmallow perfume; I have compared it with the original formulation of Love don’t be Shy and I would say it’s 98% similar (it is slightly less complex). But yes, it’s that good and it has good longevity compared to the modern formulation of LDBS. Never stop making this one Dua, it’s a gem 👌.
