First thing, this perfume has a terrible consistency. When I got the first bottle, its atomizer wasn't working properly (I am hearing this a lot about Armaf packaging) but it had certain sweetness in the middle notes after harsh opening. But then I replaced the bottle with another one (thanks to Amazon, it was quick in that). The second bottle has a bit more harsh opening and the sweetness in the middle notes (which was so much appreciated to negate the harshness) was minimal. And this harshness has a really cheap synthetic vibe that keeps bothering me until it fades away. The performance is also good though. I am not going to buy this again. I know people say its Aventus Creed copy. But I would say a cheap one.
