WHAT I SMELL: No. 3 had the harshest and most odd opening I have experienced in a long time. It didn’t last but for a few seconds, but it smelled like rubbing iodine. Thankfully, very quickly No. 3 turns into magnolia sweetened by sunshiny lemons. Eventually, this bright and lemony sweet magnolia starts blending with the peony and musk which gives it a bit more of a warmer feel. This isn’t great, but it’s not horribly bad either. However, I think it could become headache inducing. The smell of magnolia can go a long way.
Cereus No.3 is a fragrance built around citrusy accords, refreshing magnolia petals, jasmine and peony in a heart. Delicate flowers are resting on a sensual base dominated by musk.
THREE ADJECTIVES THAT DESCRIBE NO. 3: bright, clean, freshnoxious (fresh in an overly artificial way)
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT NO. 3: I didn’t find any other reviews!
BOTTOM LINE: Meh. I see this is a summer scent for some unfortunate woman in Florida who paid too much money to smell like what she believes makes her smell pretty.
