I am a new candlemaker and have been looking for statement-making, luxury fragrances for my candles and stumbled upon Sixteen Seventeen. I'm not normally a floral person, but I wouldn't be much of a business owner if I only made things I like, so I ordered this one because I figured it sounded interesting with the black tea note. It is SO lovely, verdant, green, fresh, floral yes - but not cloyingly so. Some florals, especially with rose, can skew more mature and grandma perfume smelling, but this is clean and fresh and really chic. I haven't used it yet so I can't say for certain how good the hot/cold throw is, but first impressions out of the bottle is that this will be a lovely addition to my collection.
