  1. This smells very orangey to me.. Its very light and airy almost like a sponge cake might smell. Longevity and sillage are okay… Its not the strongest scent i own by far. It becomes more like a skin scent after a few minutes. Still! It smells quite nice and i like the addition of suede to add something unexpected to it.

  2. Omnomnom…this was a triumph, I’m making a note here –huge success! Super realistic (and buttery!!) cake batter with just the right amount of banana that smells almost caramelized. The walnuts and sandalwood make for a really nice woody-nutty way to cut through some of the sweetness, and the touch of suede keeps this from being a pure gourmand and makes it more interesting. The suede was a really interesting touch!
