Guess New

NOTES (as listed on fragrancenet.com): amber, freesia, tangerine, muguet, green apple, peach, peony, musk

I bought this on a whim, with a gift card that was going to expire. I wanted to smell it prior to purchase, as I hadn’t even so much as READ about it at that point, but there was no tester. Since I had to spend the gift card or lose it, I went ahead and got it. Quite the opposite of my Wrapped With Love purchase, Guess New went down in history as one of my best “uneducated” perfume purchases.

CLASSIFICATION: clean, fresh, feminine

AGE GROUP: college
