I am over the moon about this perfume! I received it as a free PR sample which is providential since, though it smells pretty decent in the bottle, I don't know if I would have picked it up in the store. Then I realized it smells 1000x even more amazing on my skin.
I like spicier, edgier scents and was wearing Womanity quite a lot up to this point. My other favourites were more mainstream like Burberry Sport and such. Exotic Essence by David Yurman is a big departure for me from what I'd normally choose.
I have no talent for describing fragrance notes, so here it is from the horse's mouth:
[Exotic Essence's] rich amber shade radiates an effortless warmth and mystery, is inspired by the sensual gemstone citrine.
Fragrance Family:Modern Sensual Oriental
Top notes: sparkling mandarin
Mid notes: Casablanca lily, rose petals, exotic woods, patchouli
Dry notes: vanilla absolute, amber, warm musk, Australian sandalwood, peach skin
It's definitely musky but in a deliciously sensual and organic way. I couldn't be more thrilled about this perfume and it's my new daily favourite!
