I am not a woman who likes very feminine scents. I don't prefer rose, lavendar or other heavy florals. I usually like citrus (CKOne when I was a teen) or musky/spicey (CK Obsession in my 20s). There used to be a great Bob Makie scent called 'Makie' that I loved that isn't around anymore. I usually wear Juicy Couture or Rock and Rose. (Which has rose but also Blackcurrant, Gardenia, Orange Blossom, Sandalwood, Musk, Vanilla)
Anyway, on a whim at the mall I tried the new DKNY. The colors of the packaging caught my eye first. Similar to Rock and Rose with black, fuscia and dark purple. The model in the ad looked like young Michelle Pfeiffer (sp?) and the testers are unique and LARGE. The lotion tester was the size you would get in a FWP, like a round glass container of eye cream size. The perfume was a small bubble of the liquid attached to a postcard, that you tear at the perf and drip on.
The scent is very musky - just on the edge of smelling like a cologne but a tad more feminine. Patchouli is evident in the scent, so if you find that overpowering you won't like this. Also Pomelo, Ginger, Blackberry and Purple Freesias.
I could not smell it on myself all day, but when I stopped to sniff my wrist every now and then I really liked it! I had the lotion on my arms and my gf Michelle with bad allergies was not bothered at all.
(and I've seen it on EBAY along with the lotions.)
