This is a very fresh summery scent. Don't let the name scare you off. No, you will not smell like basil, which I like anyway. There is just a hint of basil with mostly cities and a vague whiff of melon or cucumber behind. The bottle is gigantic so you can spray to your heart's content. I find it to be a unisex fragrance. If you want something light and not oppresive, this would be wonderful during the hot humid weather.
The huge 300ml bottle is great for decanting and spritzing throughout the day during warm weather
