A very slight sweetness comes through on the dry down for me, but on a scale of 1-10, I would say the sweetness is only about a 3 or 4, so not overly sweet at all. Not as syrupy and sickly sweet as the pure perfume. If i never swap my full pure perfume mini than i will just layer it underneath the edp for more throw and endurance.All of the notes are blended together cleverly and smoothly, so nothing shouts above the other. I agree on all accords bar white floral, or maybe it's in the background for me. My edp is nutty, profound, sophisticated and a touch powdery. Notino sample: Goes on very sweet and rather generic - not, necessarily, a bad thing, when you are someone like me, who doesn't seem to suit many top notes!
Well-rounded and complete - nothing lacking here, very polished. The really great thing here is that it's not really a cloying monster or a badly done fragrance in any way. I could see this working for dates and nights out with a loved one. My wallet, on the other hand, feels the difference quite well, I assure you, as it can cost a tiny fraction of what Organza (quite deservedly) costs.
With Organza, I get a sweet honeyed jasmine with supporting notes of tuberose and gardenia.
There's also orange flower and honeysuckle and this really comes across as another variation on a sweet, white floral. Al-Rehab BALKIS is a potent, gorgeous dupe for this classic.
It starts with an intense nutmeg pungent white floral smell and a few minutes later the flowers distance themselves and you start smelling a very warm vanilla induced spicy Jasmine and tuberose and gardenia.
It does have e very rich woody background; and is well blended with a ton of notes.
Organza always smells sophisticated, complex, bold, and intriguing to me.
