So what does it smell like? Tattoo belongs to the gourmand category; it smells mostly like dessert plus a little typical perfumey smell (the flower notes). At the very beginning I get a soft fresh note (very light bergamot), which is immediately replaced by the rich sweet notes. It’s mostly tonka bean and vanilla, a little red berries. This is shot through with a flower cocktail. I can’t really pick out individual flowers but I’m sure there is some jasmine and orange blossom.
I don’t get any huge changes after that, sometimes you smell the sweets more, sometimes the flowers. There are supposed to be notes of rice and milk in it; I can’t really pick them out individually, but I guess they lend themselves to the dessert feel. Personally I would prefer the whole deal without the flower notes. They feel a little scratchy against the soft cake. Or maybe it’s the blackberry that’s a little scratchy.
All in all, a solid gourmand perfume, for the lover of sweet smells. Not really very special, though. Many brands offer a similar perfume imho. So this is nice to have, but no must have.
