I purchased this without smelling it first and could not be happier. It was a very pleasant surprise. I think it might be my new favorite smell. None of the Pinrose perfumes are too much or give me a headache. This scent is strongly scented but not too much. It lasts all day. It has a spicy almost peppery spice but also slightly reminds me of that tropical sunscreen smell and a little sweet. I could be completely off with my interpretation of it but I love it so much!
