Why: "This is a product to definitely stay away from if you are even the slightest bit sensitive to strong fragrances" because it will give you "a bad headache," readers say. They agree that the fragrance is "not at all pleasing." One reader insists that she "shouldn't be hitting the bottom notes of a perfume within an hour." While she is normally "a walk through a mist of perfume kinda gal," with this fragrance she has to "give a few good squirts straight on, gag on the powder scent for a bit and then enjoy the middle and bottom notes." And although "the bottle is absolutely adorable," a reader says, she "expected more staying power" based on the price.
