Fragrance Find - Laundry by Shelli Segal Perfume

Los Angeles based fashion brand Laundry by Shelli Segal is known for their great dresses which are sexy yet still work for the office and after work fun.  They've recently launched their  debut fragrance is it's the prefect expression of the brand - and a great choice for spring/summer.
The fragrance, created by perfumer Clement Gavarry, was inspired by a fun scent that took it's cue from a "cocktail" infused with fresh mandarin, plum and guava. 
While this is categorized as a floral chypre, my first impression upon applying it was very fruity - but light and sparking.  It really did give me a nice impression of the plum and guava in particular, were very prominent on my skin.  This makes it a great choice for those of you who lean more towards sweeter, fruiter scents, especially in warmer weather.
However, what really made me take notice was how this scent developed over the course of the day.  After the initial hour or so, the fruitiness quieted down quite a bit, and the beautiful light florals (orange blossom, peony) took over.  It was almost as if the sent completely changed on me, and I loved the direction it took.  The floral notes stayed with me quite a while more during the day.
Then the dry down was yet another nice surprise.
It became very woodsy and warm with the sandalwood, amber and musk notes, but it remained very soft and almost "creamy" in feel.  Again, it was as if the scent changed completely yet again.  The dry down was absolutely amazing and had a staying power that took me into the early evening.
If you're looking for a fun fruity - floral - that develops into something even more interesting and sensual, this is the fragrance for you. - RLB
