But you know what kind of "smells good"? Yummy clean clothes. It's what I'd want my laundry to smell like. And, in fact, I think I've gotten this out of other laundry products. Not quite as well done in those, perhaps, and with no hint of development...yes, the Byredo has a hint of development...but still. I like it as a smell. I just don't think I like it as a perfume.
Time will tell if I am an unperceiving rube. Could be. If you wear it, you will smell good.
