The Scent: We HATES it, Precious!…… Forgive me. Perhaps some of my vehemence stems from bitter disappointment. I expected to LOVE it, given that I adore cranberries, pear and star anise. Instead, it’s all pedestrian freesia and magnolia, circled by a shy and noncommittal clove. Maddeningly, instead of harmonizing with the anise, those delightful red berries fight tooth and nail to be the center of attention, completely drowning out any contribution made by the more subtle pear. The dueling notes, separately so delightful, never do resolve their differences, and in the end simply agree to clash. A bit messy. **
