I'm perplexed as to how some are unable to smell the cake in this. All noses are completely different though, so absolutely no judgement, just a sympathetic observation, as this smells absolutely, SPOT-ON delicious to my sniffer & almost exactly identical to a dessert I once had! I haven't used this in CP yet, and will update when I do, but OOB, it's positively mouth watering! When I smell this, I get the WHOLE experience in one sniff! Notes of moist lemon cake, vanilla frosting drizzling down the sides, sweet lemons, sprinkled with granulated sugar, and an uplifting hint of freshly grated lemon zest! It's rich, but not TOO rich, sweet, but not TOO sweet, and tart, but not TOO tart- all blended together to make the most delectable representation of the finest baked-lemony treat! For our anniversary one year, my husband took me to a restaurant that on any other occasion, we wouldn't have been able to justify spending that kind of money. For dessert, I ordered a "petite" (as they called it LOL!) lemon bundt cake that was to die for! Its ruined lemon cake for me forever because I've not been able to find anything like it since! It was the most INCREDIBLE dessert though! It came with curls of real lemon zest, sticks of white chocolate in the middle (painted with yellow stripes- barber shoppe style) and fresh mint leaves to garnish. This fragrance is the closest in scent to how that bundt cake tasted that I've smelled! I can't wait to get this FO in CP & smell it in application, but strictly as an OOB impression, I can't recommend it enough! I mostly work with FO's that don't discolor, but some scents I make an exception for... This is definitely one of those exceptions!
