At first spray, it's unmistakably Baccarat! (If you've smelt the real deal you'll know what I mean.. it's such a distinctive fragrance) But after about 10 minutes it's a strange smell, not unpleasant but a bit chemical. BUT THEN... once the notes settle after about an hour it's Baccarat again! It doesn't have the throw or longevity of the real Baccarat but for the price you can't really expect it to! I was skeptical if DB could recreate this one as well as it has with other brands but they most certainly have! DB have the BEST dupes around.
