This probably smelled better back in the day (1992), but my impression of the 2018 version is “meh” Wings isn’t at all similar to the original Giorgio Beverly Hills in the yellow striped box. It isn’t sweet or fruity at al. What it smells like, exactly, is a 50/50 mix of Calvin Klein Eternity for Women and Egyptian musk oil. The Eternity component is pretty prominent throughout, in the form of a screechy high-pitched “laundry soap” accord. The drydown is musky and sandalwoody and I like it, but that sharp screechiness persists and kind of wrecks it. Ultimately Wings smells like it was copying two popular fragrances of the early 1990s and didn’t really know what to do other than mix them together in a beaker. Unoriginal, and ultimately pretty unpleasant. Oh well.

I don't like Georgia Beverly hills new body wash and don't understand why after all these yrs they would change. I'm no longer buying their products which I've used since their inception. I purchased this practically every year, depending which product I needed. They had a good thing going, but not now.

Just bought this at Shoppers for $20 for the 90ml EdT. I can't believe this is an updated version. I've never smelled the original, but this perfume definitely has that 80's hugeness right out of the bottle. I love it already. Smooth, thick and lush floral bouquet.

I loved this when it first came out, about 25 years ago, and I still love it even though it has gone through some reformulation. It is still lovely. I do tend to stay with older fragrances, I guess I just have not found any of the newer fragrances that go well with my chemistry. And too, I just like to stay with what feels like "me". I only use two fragrances-- I love this (mostly for evenings) and the original Liz Claiborne signature (mostly for daytime) in the triangle bottle. Red is a beautiful floral, with a nice, soft powder note and a bit of a fruit note which reminds me of cherry blossoms. It does have a bit of spice, but just barely, and a hint of sexy musk. I do get compliments when I wear this. I have never felt that it had what people call the "old lady" scent, definitely don't get that. I use only one or two sprays at the most, but I do not find it to be too strong, or as powerful as many other fragrances, like Estee Lauder's fragrances- I just cannot handle any of them. They work for many people, but none of them are for me; and I can wear this, but many people can't. Fragrance is just such a personal thing, so it is a matter of finding what is right for you, what you feel good wearing.I have found individual bottles this at TJ Maxx for $12-20 and Kohl's had the gift set, as well as Walmart.com. The set came with a lotion, which smells just as good as the spray, and also it has a mini. Last year I got a set for around $25. I will wear this as long as I can buy it, which I hope will be a very long time.

Edit: March 2017 - I purchased a bottle. It's the beginning of Autumn where I live, but we've had a burst of hot weather, and I found one, lone bottle being thrown out at my local chemist for $10. Score!!! I've worn it three days in a row, and it really shines in hot weather. It's juicy and floral and cool all at the same time. Longevity is best in hot weather, and for a good 6 hours, I keep getting lovely wafts of this juicy, aquatic floral floating around me. Original review below.This is not a fragrance I own, but is a favourite of my best friend. I've worn it enough times to judge it properly now.Aire is a lovely summer aquatic floral with a cool musky drydown. It starts off with a burst of juicy peach and green notes which are followed quickly by a light combination of jasmine and tuberose. There's nothing indolic about the jasmine, and nothing rubbery about the tuberose - instead they are both very clean and fresh, like just opened, fresh picked flowers.The combination of juicy peach and fresh white flowers lasts for several hours. Eventually it dries down to a combination of mid and base notes. The sandalwood and vetiver give it that lovely cool feeling until it gently fades away after 4-6 hours.Many people on Fragrantica compare it to Acqua di Gio. Personally I think it smells more like the now discontinued Eau d'Eden by Cacharel.I think this is an absolutely lovely choice for hot humid weather. I have ticked that I would not repurchase because I have a couple of light florals that work well for me in hot weather. However, if anyone gave me this I would definitely use up the whole bottle.Longevity: 4-6 hoursSillage: moderate for a couple of hours, drying to a lovely skin scent after that
