Category: Floral Woody Musk

Notes: Yuzu, freesia, bamboo leaf, bergamot, jasmine, orange blossom, rose geranium, mimosa, sandalwood, musk, amber, oakmoss and cedar. 

The Bottle: Apparently designed to mimic the shape of an uncut diamond (why, exactly?), the bottle instead does a remarkable job of emulating a shapeless plastic piece of crap. The cheap looking, misshapen plastic lid is the worst offender, but the entire composition is thoroughly lacking in charm. A blob on my dresser top (it was a gift). *

The Scent: Surprisingly pretty, given the disastrous packaging. Deseo is very like a tropical garden, with a passing nod to some sweet, woody smelling greens. Very warm, and nicely feminine, without being over the top. It’s lightly sensual, the orange blossom, freesia and mimosa notes harmonizing with particular sweetness. ***
