My Dad bought this for me when I was in my 20's. And let me tell you, my Dad knew fragrances...he was the best at picking out a women's scent. And he loved this one. So, whenever I smell this, it makes me think of my Dad. This is an intense fragrance -- a fragrance for a woman who knows what she wants...a woman who is intelligent...not a shrinking violet. My Dad was born in 1932 and grew up in the 50's when men were men and women were women...this is a fragrance that captures that era. I love it!!
