Celebrate by Marilyn Miglin
Marilyn Miglin seems to be an interesting woman. She has her hand in the arts, politics and humanitarian endeavors among other things. I've worn this particular fragrance numerous times now and while not exactly celebratory, it's actually a pleasant and inoffensive wear. It's lucid and breezy, but with substance. Celebrate wears like a clean, feminine floral should. There are other facets to it, but the thrust of this scent is to smell casual and enjoyable. There's an underlying stem quality present and I like the fact that the main accord is anchored to this aspect. It seems to lend a vibrancy to the composition.
Celebrate, while sheer, possesses an impressive longevity factor on my skin. After 20 minutes or so, it does become a personal space scent, but with hang time. Upon application, I can't claim to experience transitions as it seems to be fully developed already, but it does morph some once the base accord commences. The foundation is a woody musk with a subtle marine aspect that's rather good. The floral components add accent if nothing else, but they don't bloom on my skin like conventional floral notes. I did take notice that the base and drydown are less gender-specific due to the woods and subtle spicy resins.
