I tried Midnight Pomegranate yesterday, and I like it a lot. It's citrusy, powdery, and spicy all in one. I may have to buy some…
The powder will ruin it for me, but I'll try it!
I love Midnight Pomegranate, but it's a temporary thing..I can tell it'll bore me soon. The Island line is a disappointment….weak, chemically, and for god sakes who the heck wants to wear banana???
I smelled the Fei Banana and can confirm most wholeheartedly that I don't want to wear it
I agree the Fei Banana isn't great. The shower gel and lotion are definitely better as the banana disappears faster into a much greener scent. The Tiare Flower I think is much much better. It smells exactly like the perfume they use to scent the air in the Treasure Island Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, which in my opinion is not a bad thing. It's also quite similar to Songes by Annick Goutal (check the notes). Enough similarity in fact that I wear this fragrance during the day and spray the Songes on as night falls for a dramatic switch from sunny and tropical to exotic and sensual. (This works for men and women I have found) And anyway, for $20 you can't beat it for a summer tropical floral.
