Body mist quality
This smells to me like a very light body mist with berry notes, almost transparent.
The usual base notes (musk, vanilla) seems missing in this perfume.
It's not bad, but fades to quickly... (compared to other fruity-floral perfumes I have)
This perfume reminds me of some body mist/body splash form Disney intended for children.
I would recommend this to a very young person or someone who likes light "almost there" scents.
The bottle design is a strong + though! It feels good to hold and looks pretty on a shelf.

A Forbidden Affair With Zombies
If Only Anna Sui's Forbidden Affair lived up to its' name. This floral fruity perfume could have such promises. Black currant dominates, in other words, the infamous cat pee note, along with red currant (another cat pee note tempered with fruit), and lemon. Think about this. Not exactly pleasant. Along comes cedar and violets to give it an earthy dirt smell and there you have it. A Forbidden Affair with zombies. Enough said. Luckily it doesn't last long.

Sweet and jammy berries
When I heard the name, Forbidden Affair, I pictured a naughty fragrance; rich, flirtatious and bold. In some ways this fragrance lives up to its name, but on the other end of the spectrum it's a pleasantly sweet and jammy fragrance, perfect for the younger segment of the population.

Forbidden Affair opens with zesty lemon and rich, concentrated currant jam. The foreboding yet sensual nature of this fragrance emerges towards the heart, with the prettiness of a luscious pink rose being smothered in red, juicy berries and pomegranate.

It's a night-time fragrance, kind of along the lines of Escada's Moon Sparkle and Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy. It does have a somewhat juvenile feel, however that's not to say that I'm not enjoying it, and I'm most likely over the targeted age range.

It doesn't make me feel like I'm living inside a fairytale like the figures on the bottle suggest, but it does make me keen to go out night-clubbing wearing this particular fragrance, if that means anything. Although I haven't tested it on a male nose, I'm pretty certain that men would be attracted to this rather sweet and jam-like concoction.

The sillage is not bad. I found the longevity to be quite impressive too. There's a lot to like about this fragrance, especially in terms of the bottle design which is a really pretty purple with delicate rose detailing. I will be using my bottle until the very last drop is gone.
