I got this perfume as a gift and did not know how much it cost until I saw this review. For this price one would expect a longer lasting scent but this isn’t the case here! I agree with the general comments about the perfume not lasting long enough; I have used it only twice and in each instance the scent kind of evaporated. I would suggest carrying it around in your bag and maybe putting on some more when you go freshen up. It’s not something I would buy because no one asked me what I was wearing – I usually get comments on a fragrance and the silence was enough to convince me that it isn’t for me.
