I wore the polish for a few hours now and it really does smell like rose petals! It actually took my surprise because when I was first applying the polish it had a different scent to it. It smelled like a lighter version of Nivea lotion, but then that went away and it just smelled like potpourri. I wasn't thrilled with that at all and was a bit bummed, but then as I was washing my face I caught the scent of fresh rose petals! I think that it was probably just too strong of a scent at the beginning and as the hours passed the scent became muted.
All these pictures were taken with flash and I used three coats of Waterlily with one coat of NYC Grand Central Station. The formula was better on this one, but it still was a bit thick. I had to work fast, although not crazy fast like with Tuxedo. The one thing that was bad was the bit of bubbling that came out from time to time. I think Dior polishes just take a bit more work than other polishes, and I guess I am willing to take the extra work because I love the colors I have so far.
Here is a picture without flash just for kicks.
The brush still bugged me, but the formula was A LOT better on this one. The scent was amazing at least for me, so much that I now want to pick up the other shade in the spring collection. ^_^
