Running a bit late for dinner at our favorite restaurant,I grabbed my just delivered bottle of Rapture and while on the way to the restaurant, I opened the Rapture and dabbed a bit behind my ear and down my neck to my cleavage taking in the sexy,romantic , intoxication of this fragrance as my husband did as well. We didn't make it to the restaurant.
A friend of mine sent me a sample of this, and not knowing the brand, I wore this and totally LOVED it! I was wearing this when I was out walking my dogs - and a man complimented me on this as I was bent over picking up poo! Maybe it was the wistful look in his eyes that looked at me like I was a Goddess, or something... but this fragrance totally ROCKS! The initial spray of this - is STRONG! On some other fragrance review sites, some say that this fragrance is very "mature" and some have said that this fragrance is "old lady"... but on my skin, this mixes extremely well with my chemistry and has a scrumptious dry down. Don't be fooled by the comments on this. Some people are drawn to the deeper chords of the alto/tenor notes - and are not as smitten with those that smell cotton candy-ish. This fragrance reminds me of some of the richer fragrances that came on the scene in the 1980's, the full-bodied fragrances that linger and have more presence.
T really wanted to like this scent, but Don't. It's an oriental, which I usually love, and opens with a lovely woody note. But then it goes sweet, sickly sweet. I couldn't wait to wash it off.
