My Thoughts

Leighton Denny Light & Dark Lively is classed as unisex, but personally, I find it quite masculine when worn alone. Perhaps it’s the ginger, vetiver and sandalwood, but it’s not quite right on my skin and somehow I just ended up smells like a man in cheap cologne. However, as advised by Leighton Denny (see above) when it is combined with Light & Dark Desire, it is actually a really lovely fragrance and becomes much more feminine, but with a darker, sexier edge. When the two are worn together, the bergamot, lemon and grapefruit seem to be livelier and they balance really beautifully with the dark woods and amber.
