That hue between red and blue known as purple has a fascinating history – it has long-been associated with royalty, given its' rarity and expense, but also symbolic of piety, adopted by the powerful "princes" of the Catholic Church, those considered the monarchs of their order. From mentions in the Bible and Greek epic poetry to the wardrobe of ancient Roman emperors to its fabulous modern-day expressions, love it or leave it but you simply can't ignore it. Purple is a shade to be reckoned with, and we acknowledge its power and prestige with a shower of wisteria blossoms framed by powdery frankincense, woodsmoke, and dry vanilla layered upon a smooth sweet musk. To ensure you will reign in any situation we have enhanced this fragrance with our exclusive pheromone blend HEART & SOUL, a social mix which strives to help ladies to really connect and resonate with people - whether it be with their loved ones, or just good friends.

I realize this could change with a few days of sitting, but I'm liking it so far!!  I don't get any smoke at this point.  And other than that, I can't pick out too much individually...which is awesome.  Definitely smells purple to me.

In this version, the wisteria is really intense in the vial and for about five minutes, and then the other notes take over.  It's still in the background, but I'm getting way more of a powdery incense smoke kind of thing happening, and I don't think that was the thing with the previous version, at least on me.  This really isn't my kind of scent, though, it also goes kind of soapy on me (which could be the musk, possibly)?  So there's something which doesn't like my chemistry at all, I figure.

I agree with Luna that this version is way more wisteria heavy than the original. I don’t know if it’s a sweeter wisteria note or if there is just more of it but it’s definitely sweeter as well. It starts going powdery pretty quickly. The Smokey incense is waaaaaay in the back. This version smells very different to me. For several minutes it smells like powdery deodorant on me but that thankfully backs off a bit. Overall it’s a nice scent, pretty and unique but I’ll continue to hoard my original bottle which is one of my all time favs.

This starts out as all wisteria on my skin, then fades to a light floral. It reminds me of an expensive bath soap that has a pleasant scent. I don't get any smoke or vanilla at all. I have never tried the original version, so I can't offer a comparison.

I don't really remember too much about the original, but I traded my trial vial away so it must not have been my kind of scent. 

This version is all scary wisteria at first, I almost feel like my allergies will act up, lol. But it fades into a powdery soft scent, with just a hint of the wisteria. I don't think I have anything with Heart & Soul so I will definitely keep this.

On me, this one starts off all baby powder. It dries down to a nice powdery floral. It's very well-balanced and blended, so it's hard to separate the different scents! It seems sophisticated.
