    Definitely the light,crisp,clean smell works.
    Don’t you just hate when you hug someone and end up wearing their smell for the rest of the evening.
    Or, when your guest arrives wearing a Fragance that is in competion with your plugin air freshner!

    I have smelled two of these, but I would recommend D&G’s #3, that gives #1 a run for it’s money! Which also has a light, crisp, and clean smell. I have always been into fragrances and I would not mind getting a few for Xmas myself lol.

    LOL @ mythoughts…competing with the plugin air freshener. Yeah I hate smelling someone who swam in the bottle. My preference is clean, light and crisp where it kind of smells like you just stepped out the shower and rolled on a Downy fabric softener sheet…lol.
