Lemony caramel
Lemony caramel. Very nice, and a great example that not every nice smelling frag has to come with a big price tag. The citrus lifts the sweetness just up enough to give it some lightness and playfulness. It will never be a fav of mine, but it is pleasant enough to keep it in my collection.

Key Lime Pie As A Fragrance? It Can Work With The Right Person, The Right Season
A piece of key lime pie with drizzled, melted caramel sitting close to your skin. Candied lime pieces with milk chocolate. Tattoo belies its name. It's a simple, easy scent to wear. The name implies much more of a daring, provocative perfume, but it's not.
This fragrance by Michel Germain is a gourmand delight that upon application seems light and more of a body spray. It is not at all. Hours later, I still catch the delectable lime and caramel sitting close to me. A hint of sandalwood infused with light musk completes its picture on me. It's enjoyable to wear a fragrance like this that doesn't walk ahead of me with its fumes, yet has staying power. The addition of lime is a nice change in today's scents of butter cream frosting, vanilla, sugary perfumes. It's unexpected. Definitely a warm weather fragrance, but I'm curious to test it in the cooler weather, too, since sweeter gourmands do so well in the chillier weather months.
I've been layering Tattoo with a few of my vanilla based frags and the results were wonderful. Adding vanilla to the lime and caramel seemed to give Tattoo a creamy, powdery finish. I used Jessica Simpson's Fancy, Fancy Love, Fancy Nights and Hillary Duff's With Love all with success. They added to the meringue flavor easily.
I like mixing some of my scents that don't work as well alone, but are in a similar category. I can layer to create a more in-depth fragrance for my needs. I'm just adding to the pot, and using some of my frags that don't get used by themselves. Tattoo works perfectly well alone, don't get me wrong. Sometimes I just like to layer scents.
My bottle is the newer changed bottle with the pink label, gold letters. I much preferred the older bottle with the tattooed woman. That bottle suited the name and was far more striking. This bottle is just a plain glass with "Tattoo" emblazoned on it and looks boring to me. But for the price,(I paid 7.99 USD) it was worth it.
I love my gourmands and if you do, I'd give this one a try. Especially if you like key lime pie. That's a must.
