I admit, I don't really know what this perfume smells like. However, the description on the Nordstrom website sounds wonderful: plum, pink pepper and jasmine. Additionally, I feel like Bottega Veneta would make a perfume that is great and elegant. Finally, even if the smell was only so-so, this delivery system is perfect. A solid perfume in a beautiful compact, which you can slip in your purse and dab on as you need it? Awesome.
