Hello ladies,Went shopping  thode din pehle.... (YA,Again!!!!!!)
And I got something that i loveeeeeeeeee a perfume...I stock on perfumes too.......they are my passion...I usually have 5-6 running at any given time..
My signature scent is ESCADA MAGNETISM FOR NIGHT AND Davidoff cool water WAVE for the day....although I do keep experimenting......and buying new ones...This time i bought..
This has received rave reviews...also one of my patients mothers very graciously had gifted me with a EA green tea hand and foot cream which is oh so luscious smooth and smells WOW!!!
So , this time I thought I would buy this one....

It says it contains green tea.

My experience with the perfume
It is a very refreshing perfume...on spraying the first notes are lemony.....something like lemon grass mixed with musk.....other things I could not make out initally....Later it does smell  a  bit mild spicy...fennel like  and  fruity......
It is very adequate for day wear..It is a subtle..not too much in your face kind of smell ,so people who are averse to strong perfumes ..might like this a lot..
I am a I should smell good from an arms distance kind of person.....So for me it is a bit mild..
But after using So many rich fragrances,this is a welcome and pleasant change....
I had thought that it would be very less say 3-4 hours considering how mild it is.....but it lasted 6 hours o around 7 hours ....but it did fade away ......
My escada  magnetism lasts for 24 hours or more....really it on that aspect...Minus  half a a point
Also do not think the bottle is precious.its sooooo plain.
Will I repurchase.....maybe....if I am not enticed with any other one..
Rating 4/5...half point minus for plain bottle and half for lasting powe
 Have you all tried it...did you like it??
Let me know
