Longing (Coty)

An initial glance at both notes list and bottle design gives the impression of a cheap drugstore retread of Guerlain Champs-Elysées. You prepare to cringe as the first syrupy-sweet drop makes contact with your skin; for a nanosecond, disappointment seems inescapable. Then a pert, prickly ribbon of oakmoss muscles its way to the foreground, and suddenly you're face to face with something more interesting and individual than you dreamed-- a real personality, flaws and all. You like her. You didn't think you would, but you do-- and you suddenly realize that true charm is a dangerous balancing act, and any person's fate can teeter precisely on the center line between a sharp tongue and a heart-melting smile.
