I am writing as I see nobody did a review and I always like to share and review what others may not be able to find in this website :p

I am surprise nobody write especially my flower boy leading man is in this drama "haha"(*shy wink*)

Story:
the plot was ok. Interesting meet and fall in love. Interesting family environment.
the initial story was funny with li ye feng boyish behaviour being the most treasured son in the family and the father was cute too. (you know those father threaten to hit but heart pain like hell scene and it cute, not those teary kind)

the meetup and encounter of the male lead and female lead was cute too.

Cast:
The Cast was good... although I heard many comments that 2015 for Tang Yan was the same face and acting of hers in all her drama but I find her pretty :P (one of my best actress category :P)

the 2nd male lead from H.K was good too, find him handsome in this drama that his other h.k show which I dun rem him being cast on a impt role before (maybe that's why he moved to china, after breaking up with ms xxx) opps, not gossip time ya :p

Music:
Music was ok but
nothing special caught my ears ....

Rewatch Value:
maybe the initial episodes that was funny and can certainly rewatch some scenes from there ^.^
howver, I really hate the rush finishing of the drama...they could have elaborate more on the ending....
watch it and you will know what I meant. Cheers!

This is the first time I'm writing a review.
The show starts off really strong and funny. the 2 main leads are hilarious. I love love love the bee powder. Yi Feng is so funny teamed with my fave actress, Tiffany. They make such an adorable couple. The scenery is gorgeous. I love the costumes they wore, especially the kimono worn by Shu Chang at the end.
Towards the end of the show it started to drag for me. I was thinking, what happened to my main leads? instead of being funny and cute, it was so melodramatic. I don't like how Tiffany's character changed from being strong to being so naive and NICE. I mean, your friends lie/cheat/tries to assassins you and you still trust them?
As for the second leads...what is more important? Who do you choose? A family member who manipulates you or a person you love in the whole world?
Is there an alternate ending? I felt like I wasted my time watching this. The ending was too rush. Why does it seem like that for majority of CDramas?
Would I watch it again? Maybe just the first part of the show. I still love Tiffany and I think she's awesome. I love her in the perfect couple with Wallace. That I can watch over and over again. I will be reviewing that shortly.

SUMMARY
This drama started off very well with good background set-up and character introductions. The fragrance theme is used very creatively in this drama as both a competing product and weapon. Overall, this drama is worth a watch for anyone who enjoys an interesting use of fragrance in story telling and many plot-twists.

STORY
The story's first three-quarters is very good, playing with ideas of crime, family relationships and personal morals. The theme of betrayal and sacrifice is very strong and characters are constantly forced to be make difficult decisions, often between family versus personal morals. The film shows good moral messages throughout the story as characters succeeds and fails. The plot is excellent until the last quadrant... where the director tried to force melodrama in scenes where it doesn't belong - unfortunately, the ending turned out to be extremely bizarre and unimpressive, when it could have been a lot better.

CHARACTERS AND ACTING
Character development is huge in this drama. Throughout the plot, all significant characters would actively experience, learn and change their behavior, for both the better and the worst. At certain part, however, the difference in character behavior becomes unrealistic drastic, making the acting feel unnatural and the character hard to believe

What did I just watch!

The only reason I'm hanging in there is because of William Chan and Tiffany Tang. I didn't like episode one at all! uggggh... The first episode killed my mood! The 2nd episode killed my mood! The third and fourth when I saw William Chan made me feel a little better. I actually feel like I have the flu! Great actors and actresses in this BUT... help!!! Just want to say Li Yi Feng I like too. so there you have it. I can't... I really can't... made it to Episode 11... The storyline sucked. My heart aches now because I feel bad to William Chan, Tiffany Tang, and all of the cast. The Pain... ugh... Then I skipped all the way to the end. Whyyyyyyyyyy???
