Raspberry is Overwhelmed by Galbanum
This was one of my beginning fragrances whenever I worked at a Smoothie King near Marshall's. When I first got this, my nose only identified the top notes and I fell in love with the sweet burst of rasberry, pink pepper, and the patchouli peeking out when sprayed.

However, I soon started to smell this bitterness a few minutes after I sprayed the perfume. It took me weeks to finally figure out exactly what that bitter, biting smell was.
Galbanum.
Now that my nose is developing, I have learned that either Galbanum comes off very stinky and bitter to my nose, or my skin chemistry does NOT like it. This perfume would be lovely without it, but the Galbanum is overpowering the lovely jasmine, freesia, and orris root middle notes.

On first spray this perfume smells quite nice and it seems very safe. The raspberry and pink pepper work well together. But once those top notes wear off, all I get is stinky, rotting, bitter flowers. It's a no for me.

If you like Galbanum and it works well with your skin chemistry, this might be for you! Don't be afraid to try things! Unfortunately, for me personally, this perfume doesn't want to be friends

Thank God, continued again!
First of all: MY DKNY by DKNY was the first perfume that I have regularly re-bought and at some point on the Internet was no longer found. A search on the Facebook page of DKNY then resulted in the unpleasant news, Discontinued ... I was incomprehensible at the time, so I have contacted via Facebook to DKNY and now we come to the point that I must particularly emphasize. DKNY has a bombastic customer service. My fear was confirmed, but they asked me for my address to send me a ,,redress". 2 weeks later, mail arrived from the US, a miniature of MY DKNY and a 30 ml version of the ,,Be Delicious". In addition, a handwritten apology, I was and am thrilled.
Thereupon I was able to get hold of 2 large 100 ml heart flacons at an online retailer, which were now used with thoughtfulness. A few weeks ago then the surprise while browsing, he seems to be back :D This is my first comment on a fragrance and it seemed to me none more worthy!

With a wide variety of fragrances, body lotion samples made me aware of the perfume. This was the case with NR EDT and also with MY DKNY. The sample was used one evening after bathing and the scent that nestled around me afterwards like a warm blanket, has surprised me very positively. I have never warmed up to any other DKNY fragrance! I found the fragrance to be warm and woody, with a pleasant, fruity sweetness.

I got compliments on my perfume the next day at the office that was actually just body lotion from the night before. After this day, I got me directly a bottle, which was already very affordable in the 30 ml version at the time. At home tested directly, the fragrance disappointed me unfortunately. The soft, sweet "cuddly wood scent" needs namely something to develop, unlike the lotion. Initially, the raspberry is very synthetic, headache loud. But after about 10 minutes, the familiar scent sets 30 ml have no lid, you press directly on the smooth surfaces of the heart to spray, I like that visually super, but dust quickly ;)
For fans of sweet, fruity fragrances with adult drydown worth a try, especially at the current price!

Diet Flowerbomb?
To me, this sort of smells like a "Diet Flowerbomb", but with more fruit. It's a very similar patchouli to Flowerbomb and La Vie Est Belle, but it lacks the overpowering strength (Which, in my opinion is a good thing, since despite liking those scents, I can never wear them without hurting my head!) There's also a little something strange or tangy in this one, that I can't quite pinpoint, perhaps it's the pink pepper. It makes it unique among other fragrances in this class, and gives it a bit of a kick.

Looking for the opposite of "unique"?
It says "rasberry and galbanum" in the pyramide and in the brochure I was handed together with my sample. I cannot detect any galbanum at all. (It is one of my favourite notes). I read phrases like "absolutely unique", "totally irresistible", "playful and spontanous". The ads are just as boring as the fragrances. In "My NY" I smell some artificial flowers. An imitation of jasmine seems trendy, notably from Egypt, orris root is mentioned, because it stands for high quality, but I can't smell it in this scent.
If this nondescript chemical soup passes as "unique", McDonald's chicken-burger is "haute cuisine".
